10 Suggestions To Optimize Your Day
Life isn’t easy, but getting the most out of it solely depends on us.
Sometimes it seems like when one difficult concern is behind us, there’s another right around the corner; so we are faced with another struggle unexpected.
Mistakes happen. Ups and downs will be a part of our journey.
It’s better to accept the situations,
rather than fight them.
Nevertheless, how can we live better today than yesterday?
The following ten suggestions helped me become more effective and live life more peacefully and rewarding. Perhaps they will help you, too.
1 - Responsibility. We can only be responsible for our actions. We must adapt to the circumstances in life, and not vice versa.
2 - Challenges. We will always have challenges. The question is how to deal with them effectively with as little damage to ourselves and our environment.
3 - Forgiveness. We shouldn’t be too harsh on ourselves (or others) – forgiveness begins at home. A mistake remains a mistake if we do nothing to correct it.
4- Liberation. It is important to release and let go of mistakes - to express regret, ask for forgiveness and show willingness to correct ourselves the next time.
5 – Rumination. The constant obsession with the past causes us harm, so continue building a bright future by looking ahead.
6 - Humanity. We're all humans. It is important to be in control, speak up when necessary, remain silent in the appropriate times and move forward.
7 - Proportion. Nothing is the "end of the world" - unless we decide it to be.
8 – The Future. There’s always tomorrow. There is always another chance to correct a miscommunication or error. We need to allow it to happen.
9 - Respect. Don’t underestimate the feelings of someone who's been hurt. Express remorse, walk in their shoes and feel what they feel. Every human being deserves basic respect.
10 - And finally - Ambition. Accept the fact that part of our work in life is to never stop aspiring to be the absolute best we can be.
