Have you ever asked yourself what the real influences of your decisions are? Why you prefer one situation over another? For instance why do you prefer being employed over working on your own?
It’s not primarily due to the circumstances or your emotions, especially not when there was a real decision involved. So why are you making these decisions then?
The answer lies at the core of your character, of what defines you as a person; and that is your personal value system.
Many people consider art just some ornament in our lives. OK, it can be entertaining, too, but they don’t see it as a necessary ingredient that can sometimes even be life-saving. I know people from different countries who stayed sane after wars in their country only thanks to books they practically devoured, while bombs and shootings roared in the background. I know people whose day becomes bright after they hear a certain song. The moment I hear happy sounds of the music of the 80’s, my soul starts dancing.
What is happiness to you? It means different things for different people. Still, as also the Dalai Lama said, everybody on this planet is seeking happiness. It is something that unites all of humanity. Happiness is something that you can’t really chase on it’s own. Happiness comes as a by-product of doing the right things in life. Having the right habits, the right thoughts, the right beliefs, the right decisions, the right actions, the right people around you…
Asking the right question could be the critical thing you are missing on your own journey of personal growth. I’m constantly astonished about the kind of breakthrough in thinking that asking the right questions can have. The process of thinking is often the process of asking and answering questions in our head. Especially when you do self-reflection, asking questions is the method to get clarity and to make personal progress.
Success still seems to be the #1 thing people desire most. Here I will reveal the 3 keys you got to have to be successful in life. We will also look at the most important success principles, used by people like Michael Jordan or Steve Jobs, that lead to certain success when followed.
Simplicity is all about essence. And purpose. It is what is left when we intelligently take away all that is not necessary. So how can we simplify our life? In this “Guide to Live a Simple Life” you’ll read how to live purposeful, successful and fulfilled and yet simple.
The 14th Dalai Lama talks a lot about happiness and how to achieve it. It’s always a real pleasure to hear his wisdom as well as his sharp mind speaking. And he makes clear the obvious: everybody on earth is seeking happiness. Is there anything more important than happiness to you?
