Increase awareness and attentiveness.
Become open-minded."If we can change our mind,
we can change our world,
and that's the world we experience."
"Inner conditions of well being will determine the outer conditions of life."
"Life is not just remembering the past, and projecting in the future.
Life includes each and every moment that we live.
The quality of the present moment is very important,
that's what today is made of.
If we take care of all the minutes and the seconds
then we can take care of ourselves."
"Our states of mind need to be improved.
The states of mind which are detrimental to the quality of being happy are,
hatred, resentment, grudge, nagging jealousy, obsessive desires, etc.
All those states of mind make our life miserable by inducing us
to act and speak in a way that also cause suffering around us."
"Excessive preoccupation with oneself,
doing everything for oneself,
sometime with the detriment of others well being,
is absolutely not going to work.
If selfish happiness is the goal of our life
then that life is soon going to be without any goal
because it simply cannot work."Speaker Bio:

It takes time to change and transform those old patterns of thinking.Thoughts have great power,
they are like seeds you plant in your mind.
The more you hold onto a particular thought,
the more power you invest in it.
Positive thoughts give us energy and strength.
Negative thoughts rob us of power
and make us feel tired and strained.
We are by nature positive.
Negativity is the result of faulty thinking.
You can change if you want to.
You can't control other people,
situation or circumstances,
but you can control what is going on inside you.
Be patient with yourself.
No matter where you are right now,
you can start over ~ today.
You have a choice to make.
You can choose to keep making the same decisions
and stay where you are,
or you can choose to start over,
and start making some changes
that will move you closer to your dreams.
It starts with a thought..... Today!
Today's Thought~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The Power of TruthThe power of Truth is such that
you need never be concerned about proving it.
You need only be concerned with being it and living it.
Truth is always revealed,
at the right moment,
at the right place. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Wishing You A deep sense of self-worth, greater concentration and clarity "Positive thinking isn't the answer,
but it is the critical beginning to all positive action.”
