Money and Success

One of the reasons people often seem happier than their peers, it’s because of their success. In general, people who make more money also tend to be more successful.

This success that makes them feel good, not the money itself. The money is a mere sideshow of the real happiness.

Another reason of happiness, is the challenges involved. Those people who pushes their mental and physical capacities to the limit, and when they pursue something, fully captures their interest and attention. Not only is the hard-earned outcome rewarding, but the sweat put into making it happen.

Invest In Yourself

Investing makes a difference in life, health, ability to grow and perform to the best of your ability. The range to which you invest in yourself, mind and body, not only shapes the way you interact with the people, it will reflects the opinion of yourself, willingness, and ability to invest.

Be creative in all aspect, explore or develop your skills, and expand your mind. Learning new things and keeping your mind active even in simple ways helps to grow and maintain your mental ability.

Of course, you can’t do it without your healthy body. One of the most important to success is being healthy all the time.

Best Friends Become Strangers

I’ve believed that people have its own role in our lives, particularly friends and being our friends. Our friends and family show us how to grow and we have room to develop, no matter what age you are. The sad thing about that, is sometimes you no longer get anything out of a friendship and you have to say goodbye.

Sometimes we accidentally or intentionally hurt one another and have a disagreement that they simply can’t get past. It has a lot more to do with a disagreement. One person peeved doesn’t end a friendship. It has to be a great trauma. You can’t keep people in your life if you’re going to hold onto toxic feelings in order to be with them. If you can’t get over pain inflicted by a friend, it’s time to move on.

We lose friends from time to time. It doesn’t serve us to hold onto regrets and anger, nor blaming yourself for friends lost. Understand the falling out happened and move on. Sometimes friendships can be repaired years later. Other times, not. You can truly only do your best.

Family Getting Together

Family get-togethers are very essential way for family members to catch up on relatives’ lives and strengthen family bonds. For younger generations, get-togethers can strengthen family traditions. Learning from the experiences of the elder ones would help them to grow and go mature.

Traditional family get-togethers can include a meal and any activity like spending in a vacation.

However, there are other ideas that can help make get-togethers memorable and provide moments that enrich the lives of family members.

Bond Between Parents and Child

Human babies are born very dependent on their parents. They undergo huge brain development, growth and neuron pruning in the first two years of life. The brain development of infants depends on a loving bond of the parent.

The strong evidences are powerful role of loving, nurture its emotional, social and cognitive development of children.

Parenting is therefore more important than we could ever have imagined.

Infancy is a crucial time for brain development. It is vital that babies and their parents are supported during this time to promote attachment. Without a good initial bond, children are less likely to grow up to become happy, independent and resilient adults.

Good Parenting

Good parenting involves a style that considers children’s age and stage of development. That is, there is a match between expectations, discipline and resilience-building strategies and children’s developmental age. It also develops a growth mindset in kids rather than a mindset that says that a child’s intelligence is fixed. Parenting that develops a growth mindset links kids’ success to effort and strategy as opposed to purely recognizing and developing natural ability.

Good parenting insists that kids help at home without being paid so that learn to be givers, not takers.

Good parenting focuses on encouragement over praise, consequences over punishment and cooperation over obedience. This ensures parenting matches the times in which we live.

Reaching Your Goals

A person with vision, power ups his/her heart to set a specific goal and bring it to reality. To reach your goal is a process. It needs self-discipline and focus of the mind.

Along the way, many obstacles to be encountered. Your ambition will ignite the desire of your heart not to give up, but to overcome. In the long run, you will attain mastery of your craft and become the person who you want it to be, reaching the goals.

Joy To The World

During Christmas holidays people have this joy everywhere. For you to know joy means a feeling of great pleasure and happiness. We hear this word often throughout Christmas holiday, it maybe in songs, poems and even in decorations.

The year should be focused around great pleasure and happiness, as people come together to remember the past year and hopefully feel excited about what is to come. It’s really a time for reflection, anticipation and comfort as well. We rest in the memories that have led us to this point.

One of the common phrases that includes this feeling is Joy to the world, which is, famous to Christmas songs. The popular hymn praises the coming of Jesus into the world in shouting, Joy to the world, the Lord is come.Joy to the world, the Savior reigns. This song celebrates the birth of Jesus, but it also reminds us that this is the time when joy was brought into the world.

We have a part to play in this song as well. The popular Christmas tune continues, let earth receive her King. This tells us that we are responsible for receiving this gift of Jesus and for allowing joy to enter into our lives. By letting every heart prepares him room, we are able to bring joy into our reality and create space for it every day. This is something we can learn to do throughout the year. Not just at Christmastime.

Spirit Of Christmas

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year. Unfortunately, it is also difficult for other people, especially their emotional state. Because of the pressure that could give the festive spirit, whether you care for it or not. We think of Christmas as a time of getting together, but many people feel lonely during the holiday season, this could affect other people of having emotional state, it gives them stress and even depression.

Also, today everyone is under pressure to spend so much money. It feels like we are losing sight of the most important aspect of Christmas, by giving appreciating and doing service to those most in need.

Christmas is a powerful time for reflection. It is a time for kindness and joy. True spirit of Christmas is evidenced best in a generous heart.

And, just like life, Christmas becomes what we decide to make it. When we truly embrace the spirit of Christmas, with all its warmth, joy and love.

Getting To Know Yourself

Knowing yourself is like a journey. It’s about looking the true self of who you are as a human being. It may also a journey of unpredictable path and it also brings you to face with your deepest fears, self-doubts and insecurities. On that journey you will question yourself what would be your highest purpose. And if you don’t know yet your highest purpose, allow yourself to live in that space of not knowing.

Knowing yourself means giving yourself a permission to know then truth of who you are. It is about listening to a deeper calling and wisdom within, while following your heart.

Knowing yourself is about being aware of your core values, priorities and dreams, also respecting your strengths and weaknesses, passions and fears, desires and dreams, thoughts and feelings, likes and dislikes, tolerances and limitations.
