Day 2 of Greater Happiness Course...(◦'⌣'◦)

SUPPORT YOURSELF!

Some people constantly CRITICISE themselves.
They say things like:
"I'm FAT."
"I'm BORING.""Watch me SCREW THIS UP!"


There are two problems with criticizing yourself:

Firstly:
You BECOME what you think about.
So when you criticize your own performance, it gets worse!

Secondly:
Criticizing yourself IRRITATES other people.
Eventually, even your friends will want to smack you in the mouth!
Self criticism is not humility, it's stupidity.

So this is your job for the next 24 hours:
Notice what you say about yourself.

Starting today, say ONLY GOOD THINGS about you!
If you have nothing good to say, say nothing!

And the result?
1. You'll feel better.
2. You won't irritate other people.
3. Your performance will improve.

Just today, support yourself!
You may choose to make it a lifelong habit!

7 Days to Greater Happiness Course...(◦'⌣'◦)

Today is the first of 7 days of simple, life changing exercises.

Let's get started ...
LOOK FOR GOOD THINGS!

Take a look at the HAPPIEST people you know
and you will notice something.
They haven't had the EASIEST lives!
Happy people have usually suffered and struggled MORE than most.
But in the process, they have learned to look for GOOD THINGS in life.
And have you noticed this ...
When we look for good things in situations - or people - we FIND them.When we look for bad things, we FIND them.
So it's not changing your situation that makes you happier.
It's changing your THINKING!


If you go looking for faults in your job or your mother or your wife,
you will find plenty.

Some people spend their life looking for faults -
and then they tell you, "I'm just being REALISTIC!"
It is not realistic.It is NEGATIVE!

Happy people continually ask themselves,
"What is good about this situation?"

EXAMPLE:
You are stuck in traffic. You ask yourself, "What's GOOD about it?"
* You have time to listen to your favorite music.
* You can plan your day.
* It's better than walking!
EXAMPLE:
You are short of money. You ask, "What's GOOD about having no cash?"
* You learn to appreciate things that money can't buy.
* You become more determined to succeed.
* You find out who your friends are!

You might say, "That's nuts! It's kidding myself."Not so!

Looking for good things is a key to happiness.

So your mission for the next 24 hours?
In every situation, look for GOOD THINGS.

It may be hard at first, but it becomes automatic.
As "looking for positives" becomes a habit,
you will become happier and happier.

Ramadhan kareem...

Ramadhan yg mulia datang menjengah jendela kehidupan sekali lagi. Alhamdulillah, Allah masih beri peluang pada kita untuk bertemu Ramadhan kali ini... May we be given with endless rewards and blessings in this holy month and get the best night of all nights, the Lailatul Qadar. Amin.


Ramadhan datang lagi,
Membawa seribu erti,
Menguji jati diri,
Sejauhmana cinta pada Ilahi

Ramadhan datang lagi,Mengusir segala sunyi sepi diri,
Dinihariku yang malap kini kian berseri,
Dengan tasbih, selawat dan tahmid suci.

Ramadhan,
Datangmu memang kunanti,
Rinduku padamu sentiasa mekar di taman hati,
Segar mengharum di bingkai rohani,
Menjadi inspirasi pengabdian diri,Sepenuh jiwa raga pada raja seluruh alam,
Allah Rabbbul’alamin.

Ramadhan,
Kuharap kali ini kau takkan pergi,
Walaupun kau pasti akan pergi lagi,
Meninggalkan aku, dia dan semua isi bumi,
Dan hanya akan datang menjengah kembali,
Dengan membawa malam seribu erti,
Pada tahun hadapan nanti.
Ahlan Wasahlan Ya Ramadhan,
Wa Marhaban Minkum
Kuharap kau tetap hadir dalam sanubariku,
Bagi mentarbiyah nafsu dan mindaku agar sentiasa,
Melaksanakan Sunnatullah,
Menjauhi mungkar dan larangan Allah,
Agar..biar lahirku nanti selepas Ramadhan,
Laksana bayi yang suci bersih,
Tanpa noda dan dosa.


Ayuh! kita rebut sebanyak2 peluang utk beribadah dlm bulan ini...
