So what do you need to be happy? A new car? A house? A life partner? A better job? I am sure we all have a list and on that list there are things that are really affecting our day-to-day happiness. Many of us live our lives as a series of “Wants” and “Need to have”. That’s what we think living and life is all about.
So what’s wrong with that, you say? Well nothing is wrong with that per se, but if your goal is happiness and having high empowerment (even to have more) then there might be a better and simpler approach to life then “chasing” things and goals. Of course I am not saying that one should not have goals or aspirations. The real point here is to understand where does our day -to-day power come from? What really creates the life we want and deserve to have? Is it the chasing or something else?
Power of Simply Being
The real creation happens when we learn to “be ourselves” and give our best “to the NOW”. The now could be paying attention to the job you have, the thing you can do best NOW. When we are able to give a smile to a stranger even when there are things that could be better in our own life. When we live our life with “creative intensity” that ensure we are giving our best everyday. Better future for us and others is only created by creating value for self and others many times over in a day and doing it consistently.
Going in a shell, waiting and worrying achieves nothing. Be present – be yourself and you will create joy around you and others around you. Rest assured, if you live intensely and with joy of NOW – you will create the life you want and you deserve.
