Everything Starts as a Dream, but Requires Action

101 Motivational Tips for SuccessHere is an excerpt from the book 101 Motivational Tips for Success:

“Everything starts as a dream, a thought, a mental image, but this is just the first step. If you stay there, you will enjoy your dream, but one day you will see that you are standing still, like a person watching a beautiful and inspiring movie, over and again, but not going out to the real world to create and live what he or she has seen in the movie.”

“Are you waiting for some miracle to change your life? Sometimes, miracles do happen, but why not make the miracles happen? You can create miracles, when you know what you want, adopt a positive attitude, and take action.”

“Help the miracle happen, by participating in its creation, by planning, visualizing, expecting, and acting. When you contribute to making things happen, they eventually happen, sometimes quite fast, and sometimes, gradually, over a period of time.”

What do you conclude from this excerpt?

To achieve a dream you need to take action. For most people, it looks like a difficult step, because you don’t know where to start and what to do. It is here that most people stop and don’t go further. The people who succeed are those that think, plan, read, and look around them to see open doors. In order to see the open doors you need motivation and faith in yourself.

How To Become Assertive

The way you act towards other people can be categorised into three types of behaviour: Passive, Aggressive and Assertive.

If you tend to act passively then you may be seeking to avoid conflict, often at the expense of your own needs.

If you tend to act aggressively, you may go to the other extreme and escalate conflict in an attempt (not always successful) to get your own needs met.

Most people would agree that usually it is best to avoid both these extremes if you can and to act assertively – to express your own needs and wants, not to hide them, but to do so in a way which is reasonable and which allows others the opportunity to communicate their wishes and feelings too.

If you are in a relationship with someone or in a work situation where you feel that your needs are not being met or that the other person is acting in a way which you don’t like, then it will usually be helpful to express your feelings and thoughts to them assertively rather than to conceal them passively or to express them too aggressively.

10 Tips To Start Your Day With Happiness

Here are 10 tips to help you start your day with happiness:

1. Wake up 20 minutes earlier than usual. This will give you some free time in the morning, and reduce rush and stress.

2. After waking up, sit on your bed, and repeat in your mind several times the following sentences, “Today is a wonderful day. Today is a great day. There is a lot of happiness today”.

3. Begin your day with the expectation of a great and wonderful day.

For at least a little while, don’t focus on your problems. Just forget your problems, and enjoy the feeling of having a wonderful day, even if you cannot see how this can happen.

Most people let their circumstances dictate to them what to think, feel and expect. You can reverse this process. Choose your own thoughts and feelings, irrespective of what is happening in your life. Eventually, if you persevere, your life will change accordingly.

4. Find a few minutes in the morning to stretch and exercise your body.

5. Smile more often, even for no apparent reason. Smiling will make you feel better.
