Mister Chill'R 40 Lessons for Finding Strength in Hard Times post written by: Marc Chernoff Sometimes you have to die a little on the inside first in order to be reborn and rise again as a stronger, smarter version of yourself. Nobody gets through life without losing someone they love, someone they need, or something they thought was meant to be. But it is these losses that make us stronger and eventually move us toward future opportunities for growth and happiness. Over the past five years Angel and I have dealt with several hardships, including the sudden death of a sibling, the loss of a best friend to illness, betrayal from a business partner, and an unexpected (breadwinning) employment layoff. These experiences were brutal. Here are some lessons we’ve learned along the way: You are not what happened to you in the past. – No matter how chaotic the past has been, the future is a clean, fresh, wide open slate.

Dog Photos, Pictures, Cute Puppy Pics, Puppies - A Place to Love Dogs What Elizabeth Kubler-Ross Can Teach Us about Life, Happiness and Pain Image by mathias-erhart (license). Note: This is a guest post by Michael Miles of Effortless Abundance. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross was a Swiss born psychiatrist who spent much of her career writing and speaking about illness, death and dying. Her work on death is monumental in scope and importance, and through her writing comes an immense humanity, compassion and wisdom. “You will not grow if you sit in a beautiful flower garden, but you will grow if you are sick, if you are in pain, if you experience losses, and if you do not put your head in the sand, but take the pain as a gift to you with a very, very specific purpose.” The message here is that we can learn from every experience, and that in fact every experience can be regarded as a gift. “People are like stained-glass windows. I once read a beautiful description of the sun shining through the branches of a tree. If we wish to live a good life, we cannot abdicate responsibility for our lives to someone or something else.

I'll Never Be Happy Angry people often complain that they are not happy. Everything seems to go wrong. The world is an opponent, and life is an uphill battle. Much of this unhappy reality is symptomatic of choices angry people automatically yet actively make - without thought, and without awareness of an underlying mind-set. Happiness is kept at bay because less important things get in the way. Consider an argument with a loved one. What's the advantage of winning? Feeling strong and powerful? So, once you think about the consequences, why continue to do this "no-win win" over and over and over? Well, guess what? Most arguments are pointless, meaningless, and conducted over small matters which have little or no real meaning in life. The next time you're considering whether to nit-pick, or to correct someone's misstatement or fact which may be slightly out of place, or correct someone's opinion or plan of action, reconsider what you have to gain and lose.

Inspirational Things To See And Do The Golden Rule: Treat Others As You Would Like To Be Treated | Daddy Brain There’s something I needed to be reminded of today: Simple? Yes. Easy to do? Not always. Sometimes it’s hard……like when we get caught up in trying to accomplish a short-term goal (a manager looking to “save” money by not giving a valued employee a raise), we sacrifice the long-term (his/her productivity goes down costing the company much more than the aforementioned raise). Quite often it’s a matter of letting go of the need to control a child’s actions, a spouse’s health, keeping your company in the black, etc. If we’re having the need for control, it’s easy to get frustrated when things don’t go exactly as we’d like. But if we put ourselves in the other person’s shoes and try to get an understanding on THEIR POSITION, we just might be able to offer an empathetic ear and give them the support they really need instead of trying to control them. Something Jack Canfield, speaker & co-author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, said has stuck with me: “High intention, low attachment.”
