Most of the time in your life, you have the choice either to let negativity rule your life or you take control of it and allow positive thinking to prevail. You always have this choice in performing actions, making decision, choosing relationships, selecting attitudes, adapting to the environment, assessing or evaluating situations, weighing problems and anticipating outcomes. 

When you make the right choice using your discretion, you will have an opportunity to trust your instincts, take responsibility and feel good about yourself. In any given situation there are always some positive and negatives, opportunities and threats, where you can use your knowledge, skills, abilities and judgment to bring out the best in you and manifest the best you can. 

Where the outcomes are not predictable or disappointing, you may use them as learning opportunities. If you cultivate a growth oriented mindset, that see possibilities and opportunities for self-growth, you have greater chances of feeling positive about your actions and their outcomes.

Simple experiences can change your life and give you a new direction which you never thought before. People are motivated by many things in their lives. Some people are inspired by a scripture, a particular teaching, a guru, a book, a movie, a conversation they had with their friend, a relation or even a stranger, an incident they witnessed, a dream they had, a memory that surfaced in their consciousness or an experience they felt in meditation. You might have had those experiences yourself or heard about them from others. Knowing them one fact becomes certain. While you may not be able to explain it, you feel connected to some events and people. You are drawn to certain ideas and beliefs and when you see or meet someone you experience an inner elation that you cannot easily shake off.

We generally think abundance in terms of having many luxuries and plenty of wealth. Abundance does not necessarily mean being rich or wealthy. It is one form of abundance only. Abundance applies to every aspect of life. It has both positive and negative aspects. Focus upon the positive types of abundance you have and make the best use of them.Make

In ideal situations, you should not take any criticism personally. At the best, a criticism is a message or a feedback about yourself or your actions. It is like a raw data coming from one of the instruments in the  machinery of your life giving you vital information about some aspect of your life, actions or personality. Instead of accepting it as a piece of data, if you personalize it, you will lose objectivity and fail to make use of it effectively as an opportunity to improve yourself. We can use criticism to improve ourselves or depress ourselves. We have a choice here. We can perceive in it an opportunity for self-growth or a threat to lapse into self-pity and persecution complex. The best to deal with it is to accept it as a possible feedback and act upon it rationally and analytically. For that you have to recognize that your happiness comes not from the approval you gain from others but from being yourself and knowing yourself.

There are so many hurdles to our learning and knowing that our knowledge is never free from errors and limitations. Yet millions of us take our knowledge for granted and keep insisting that we are right. We will be better off if we cultivate humility and pay more serious attention to the way we learn things and make use of them in our day to day lives.
