Key to Happiness

Every person has there own way to keep themselves happy. But not all of those happiness are real. As some may come from bad habits. For example, teasing others or trash talking. Then how do we achieve true happiness? By earning through fun yet productive habits. What are these productive habits? I'll tell you some that "is" and "isn't".

Keys to Happiness
1. Reading
Many people doesn't enjoy reading much. But that can depend on what they're reading. In truth, I can get bored reading my school text books. When reading novels, I could get really excited or motivated. People's interest varies so find books with topics that you like.

Why does reading bring happiness? Because it allows your imagination to roam free. We illustrate what we read in our minds. Just like a theater, our very own mind theater. Our creativity will also develop from imagining. All we need to do is imagine what we read.

2. Socialize
Interact with other people. I can only imagine how lonely a life would be when lived alone. Make friends to share your happiness with. Try meeting new people, deepen your bonds with friends. Then you'll notice, how great it feels to share joy and sadness with other people.

3. Religion
Surely, not everyone believes in God. But, having to know someone is watching over you is a great feeling. God gives us faith, so we don't give up when things get tough.

I've heard once that an atheist Japanese businessman commited suicide after his company got bankrupt. What a sad thought, to end your life after experiencing failure. Giving up, in trade with life. I've always wondered if this is because he had no one else to turn to in his crisis.

It's up to you to believe in this keys. But before you decide, please give these keys a shot. At least try them then see, how truly happy you can be.

The Greatest Motivator

Have you ever heard of the greatest motivator?
Do you want to know him?
Want to get advice from him?
Don't be surprised, the greatest motivator doesn't say much. When you meet him, you have to talk more. What will the motivator do is just listen and show. You are never forced to hear him, but if you never ask him, you will not get anything.
Who is this greatest motivator?
His name is Failure.

Yes, failure is the greatest motivator. Many people have felt his touch. Many successful people have learned a lot from him.
Without meeting failure, Thomas Edison would not have created the light bulb and Colonel Sanders would be a retired soldier who will soon be forgotten.

Why can failure be the greatest motivator?
Because when someone meets failure, the only most logical thing to do is to get up. Do you know why motivational books or motivational seminars sell everywhere? Because lots of people fail. However, do you know why not all people who attended a seminar or read the books became successful? Because some of them has not experienced failure. And those who have not failed, which is still in the comfort zone, hasn't put their best ability.

On the other hand, there are people who actually fall deeper after consecutive failures. This goes back to each individual. This means that the choice to rise or sink remains in our hands. And if many people has successfully used the knowledge gained from failure, why haven't you?

The Victor

Poet: C.W. Longenecker

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t
If you like to win but think you can’t,
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win the prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.



In my previous post about Adversity Quotinet, I've explained CORE. Which are keys in measuring our AQ. Now I'm going to explain about LEAD. Which are techniques of how to improve our AQ.

L - Listen
Hear your own response when experiencing CORE. Learn and improve yourselves from past mistakes. Strengthen your weaknesses so you can overcome the mistake.

E - Explore
Find out problems where you feel responsible, but able to improve. Prioritize on improving those, especially the more important factors.

A - Analyze
Analyze the problem to counter negative thoughts. We need to correct our way of thinking into something positive. Find possibilities and opportunities in these times so we can achieve a higher goal.

D - Do
You can't achieve anything without doing. Buy you can't do anything without listening, exploring, or analyzing the situation first. After you can optimize the entire LEAD, success will be in your grasp. Which also means that your AQ has improved.
