We Need a Mission in Life
How we are alive is a mystery, but how we should live is already written in our souls. We know that we are supposed to live in peace and happiness, and then when we die, leave this world having made a difference.
However, to live and to exploit ourselves for our and the society’s betterment is not entirely easy. Besides our flaws, there are other stumbling blocks arising from the world itself, which keep us from achieving what we set our eyes on. That is, our aspirations and our dreams.
When this happens, we find that a lot of power and will has been siphoned out of our souls such that we are weak. We become disillusioned and lacking in vision, lying in the dungeon of hopelessness.
It does not help to lie there. We should wake up, take up speed and spring to our achievements, and make the best of ourselves.
We should have mission that will be our everyday inspiration – a reason for us to wake up every morning and do our jobs! So decide what it is that you want to make of your life.

Amazing Self Improvement Ideas and Tips
By learning how to use and practice only this single skill, your life will never be the same. Period! The power of affirmations is very often unappreciated and underestimated.
You have the ability to change every aspect of your life and you do this by changing your subconscious mind, your deepest belief system, your inner secret habits, your habitual attitude or paradigm – and all of this is done through the effective use of affirmations.
Start applying this principle and your life will never be the same. That’s a promise!
Learning new things and gaining new understanding and awareness is what the creator had in mind for us when we were created. Life should be a beautiful unfolding journey, constantly filled with new and exciting things by increasing our levels of awareness and changing our perception about things.
Many people believe that education stops in the moment when they get their degree… This is at the same time funny and sad… The moment we get the degree is actually the moment when the real education starts!
If a person wants to be truly successful and wise, he or she MUST study every day for the rest of their life, and really turn this into a habit. Remember, it’s never too late for this skill, even if you’re in your seventies, or eighties!
Take some time every day, and read some magnificent piece of literature, watch some self-improvement videos, learn some new skills, expand, grow! Like nourishing and washing our bodies, we must develop our mind and souls, don’t live merely for the body, but live on all 3 parts.
A person without a burning desire in this world is like a “living dead” just waiting for time to make him or her disappear. We must have something to live and fight for, something to make us wake up every day and spring into action for its attainment, something worth dying for! It’s very natural to want something so much and give our best to get it.
It is the essence of our being; it is the same force that makes the sun rise every day, the same force that makes the earth turn around the sun, the bird to sing a song, the oak seed to turn into a giant oak tree… It’s LIFE, that’s what it is!
So find out what’s your mission in your life, decide exactly what you want, internalize it by making it your most powerful inner passion and give everything you got to attain it! You’ll be amazed how great life can actually be…
You must learn how to persist. In his book “Think and Grow Rich”, Napoleon wrote that the only quality that he could find in the most successful people, that the others were missing it, was simply – PERSISTENCE!
That’s it, he said… If a person only knows what he wants, and has the guts to persist until he gets it, he will have, be or do whatever his dream is!
My friend, please remember… you can never fail if you are willing to persist until the end. The only failure in life is the person who never tries and the person who after trying and experiences a few obstacles, decides to quit.
Just don’t do these two things, and you must be a success! There’s no other way, it has to be like that, and it’s a law!
You know, a very wise man once said – “To know multiple languages is the same like to have multiple souls!” I entirely agree with this statement because it’s just so true!
There is not a single disadvantage of learning a new language and the benefits of it, are beyond any imaginable proportion. It’s a total mind-opening experience that will offer you many options and opportunities.
Make a decision that you will study and learn a new language and go for it. Choose the one most dear to you and start as soon as you can. This will not only make you feel better about yourself, it will not only give you another valuable life skill, but it will also make you feel more confident, and it will increase your self-esteem.
Responsibility is something that we learn at a very young age, and is a personality trait which is mostly habitual. Until you learn how to take responsibility for your life, for your thoughts, for your feelings and for the results that you get in your life, you will never be a success! Remember that!
You cannot blame somebody else; you cannot transfer responsibility for the things that must be done only from you, and not somebody else! Make a decision that you will no longer blame society, your family, politicians, the government, your friends, your relatives and God knows who else, for the results that you get in your life.
Only you have the power to control your attitude, your own thoughts and feelings, and no other people’s opinion can change that.
By letting others thing and decide for us, we are putting ourselves in a very bad and ugly spot, we lose from our self-esteem and our confidence goes downwards.
So don’t feel bad if up till know you have let other people’s opinions control the way you think and feel, just change it and become the captain of your own ship! Start to meditate, exercise your consciousness and say to yourself:
“I am responsible for everything that’s happening in my life! Only I have the power to control the results I get, the feelings I have, and thoughts that occupy my mind! I am deeply grateful!”
Sleep was designed so that our bodies could get a rest. However, most of us misuse this gift, such that we oversleep until 10.00AM in the mornings, continue to sleep during our working hours and even during very crucial proceedings.
One thing we do not understand, or rather, one thing that steals away from our conscience is how much harm this kind of sleep does to ourselves. We have no idea that the hours we spend doing this, can be our critical moments which can lead to the realization of our dreams and hopes.
By doing this, we practically lose from our life – time after all, is limited for every single being on this planet. The best way to avoid this is to be strict with our time.
By making a time schedule and abiding by it, then we become busy with building ourselves such that we will only sleep when it becomes absolutely necessary and unavoidable.
For example, instead of sleeping, we can work on our talents. Decide to sleep only when your body and consciousness need rest, and spend the rest of your time productively by taking steps towards the achievement of your goals.
Wake up earlier and also, go to bed earlier. Do not misuse sleep by turning it into a bad and lazy habit!
Another thing that has led to our destruction is our abiding to unhelpful pleasures. We are hopeless in life because we want to stay idle and enjoy the pleasures of not having to get tired or work.
Such addictions as eating junk food, smoking, drinking, sitting without exercising our bodies etc. are a real killer to our dreams. It not only takes away from our health and our time – but it costs money as well…
One thing we do not understand is that this kind of pleasure reduces us to not-able-to-think-human-like-creatures. This is because our minds are not engaged at all in any consuming activity.
The only way to evade this is by making ourselves busy, avoid staying idle. If you do this, you have no idea how you will notice improvement in all areas of your life in practically no time.
Remember this: “Habits are God’s way to make good automatic in our life”! So don’t misuse this gift and make “Bad” automatic in your life.
Stay Away from the Negative
Learn to stay away from negative people and negative circumstances in general. Understand that we are emotional beings and we are being influenced from things and people on a constant basis.
This negative energy in turn, affects our vibration and what we attract in our life… So stay away from the negative!
Try to look only for positive things and even in an unpleasant and negative situation, still look for the positive! If you will only look for, you will surely find it!
If we are to become better as we can ever be in this life, then it is up to us. It is up to us to deny procrastination and to deal with every pending chore immediately.
Dr. Myles said that the graveyard is the richest place in this world. Why? It is because people die, and are buried with their dreams which they did not bring to reality.
The biggest contributing factor to this is putting off until tomorrow what we can do today. To avoid the tragedy of going six foot under with our dreams, then it is important to denounce in the strongest terms, the demon of procrastination.
Write on a piece of paper, the activities and goals for the upcoming days, months and years.
Give a prioritization on each goal by putting words and numbers next to them – A1 being the most important thing that will directly influence the achievement of your goal, A2 being Very Important … B1 Being Good to do it … etc… and D being non-relevant at all.
The moment you wake up the next day, spring immediately into action with your A1 activity. You’ll be amazed what this can do for you in literally one month.
Another way through which we can achieve amazing self-improvement is by taking the chance to challenge ourselves. This can only happen, if we can critique and analyze ourselves, followed by creating and setting amazing goals which we can work on.
A person without a goal is like a shipwreck without a compass. It does not know where it is going and will soon end up on some deserted island taken by the cruel winds and waves that don’t have any mercy.
Creating goals is like equipping yourself with a map to the treasure cave. It not only guarantees us from getting lost, but also improves the chances of us getting our hands on the treasures of the world.
And please remember this – DON’T be afraid to aim big in life. Set a goal that is so amazing, so exciting, and so scary at the same time!
Understand that the goal is not meant to accumulate, but to stretch ourselves into greater realities, and never forget… it is the journey that counts, not the destination.
Set yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily goals and focus only on their attainment. In a month, you will not be able to recognize yourself.
Read Inspirational Books
The greatest treasure in this world is buried in the book. Some of us may not understand what we mean by this. This is to say that knowledge is the greatest treasure in this universe.
How then can we get to it?
The only way is by adopting the habit of reading a lot of great books that are inspirational, motivational and educational. This improves our thinking, and even our quality of mental health and perspectives, leading to a great self-improvement.
Read an excellent book each week, for the next month, you will be amazed what this will do for you… it takes a couple of hours to do this after all, and it’s very interesting at the same time.
We should not forget the fact that we need to take care of our bodies. The only way to do this is by observing absolute hygiene. This can be a very big challenge to a lot of people.
Since cleanliness is next to godliness, then we have to be clean. This will enable us to rip the fruits of a better public image, as well as boosting our self-esteem. With self-esteem, reaching our goals is a joyride.
Eliminate Your Bad Emotions
Ignorance, hatred and anger are the most poisonous elements to our souls. They do not only work to stunt our growth, but to also turn us into failures in life.
The way we look at life is what life really is. In fact, what you think about yourself is indeed very true. The reason as to why you may be failing in life might be the way you look at life. You need to change to improve.
How do you do this?
The only way to better your life is to always be optimistic even in the darkest of the moments. Be hopeful, wear a rich and smiling countenance and you will not fail to see things becoming better in your life.
Change your perception of life. Look for the positive in every situation and be sure that you’ll find it!
Choose Your Friends Wisely
Do you know that you are probably thinking the way your friends think? You might be aware of the proverb that says, show me your friends, and I will tell you the kind of a person you are.
Indeed, it is very true. In order to be a successful person, then you have to keep a keen eye on the kind of friends you have.
Make sure that they are people with a good attitude towards life, people who can be encouraging. It is my hope that you will exploit these tips to your advantage and become the best person you can ever be. You must keep the company of eagles if at all you hope to fly like one!
Learn to give thanks for every good that comes into your life. Fail
ing to acknowledge the blessings that the universe is sending to you is the same like rejecting them.
Express your gratitude at all times, even when things are bad. Be grateful for the good things that already exist in your life, and for all the good things that are coming to you.
In summary, whether or not you think you can do something, you are absolutely right. Your mindset is the only determinant how far you will go in life.
Think big and you will achieve big. Thing small and unfortunately you will achieve small.
Achievements begin in the mind before they can be manifested in the physical world. If you can conceive it, and believe it, you can achieve it!
