Although we all live one, few people have succeeded in explaining life, its meaning and purpose. One thing is for certain, though. We all love feeling good! No matter what we do, we crave for these things we called ‘love’ and ‘happiness’. Some say that life is meaningless and it’s your job to assign meaning to yours. This might be true as well. So, how can we create the best life ever lived and be our very best every day? Here are 3 tips that you can use to be the best you can ever be!
# 1 Follow your heart
I called it ‘heart’ while some called this ‘instinct’. It is nevertheless the voice of the subconscious mind or higher mind, and there is nothing in this world that guarantees everyday success than by listening to your own heart! Whenever we follow our hearts, we find ourselves in the most thrilling situations the physical mind couldn’t have imagined in a million year. Follow your heart, not the reason or other people’s directions, because love comes from the heart, while fear grows from the limited reasonable mind. Have you ever been in a situation where your mind tries to reason with your heart and then you are in a dilemma… for 2 weeks (or more)?
# 2 Choose pleasant thoughts
Our minds are busy highways filled with good and bad thoughts, positive and negative opinions, and supportive and unsupportive stories. When you learn that what you think becomes your reality, then you should carefully choose every thought you think! When you think positive and supportive thoughts, you construct your own reality. By choosing the thoughts that bring you most joy, you will be the designer of your own happy life every single day! Can you relate how easy it is to be happy, now?
# 3 Use mantras that helps
Now you know that following your heart and creating positive thoughts can create happiness and joy, so the last thing to do if you want to be the best you can is to continuously keep the awesome energy up! The secret lies in finding a mantra – i.e. a thought that you can use whenever unsupportive or negative thoughts or feelings overwhelm you. For example, one of the mantras that I absolutely love is “I am the salt of the earth, the light of the world”. Whenever I think of it, I remind myself to be my very best, the most positive and most genuine person that I am. And then, I will wear a smile wherever I go – because that smile is the light of the world!
