Startup Entrepreneurs , here are 31 morning chants – one for each day for a month (You can actually start your month with any morning chant whenever you like). So sit quietly for two-three minutes, repeat it silently as if you were meditating. More than reading, understand this chant. The best thing then to do is write this on a post-it note and stick it next to your computer monitor, the idea is to go through this the entire day.
This daily ritual will help you reduce unnecessary stress in life and will remind you of simplicity, peace, happiness, joy and prosperity. Sometimes in life all you need to do is change your perspective to change your life situation. These CHANTS (Quotes) will help you for sure. The trilogy will consist of ten Chants each. This is the first one for you!
There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more
He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, Morel, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life. Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, ‘Wait and Hope.
We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter
Too much of the time, we are blinded by our own pursuits of people to love us, people that don’t even matter, while all that time we waste and the people who do love us have to stand on the sidewalk and watch us beg in the streets! It’s time to put an end to this. It’s time for us to let ourselves be loved.
We can’t be afraid of change
You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.
Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back
That’s part of what it means to be alive. But inside our heads – at least that’s where I imagine it – there’s a little room where we store those memories. A room like the stacks in this library. And to understand the workings of our own heart we have to keep on making new reference cards. We have to dust things off every once in awhile, let in fresh air, change the water in the flower vases. In other words, you’ll live forever in your own private library.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life
Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
Life is not a PG feel-good movie. Real life often ends badly
Literature tries to document this reality, while showing us it is still possible for us to endure nobly.
Imagine life is a game in which you are juggling five balls
The balls are called work, family, health, friends, and integrity. And you’re keeping all of them in the air. But one day you finally come to understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls…are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.
For everything in this journey of life we are on, there is a right wing and a left wing
For the wing of love there is anger; for the wing of destiny there is fear; for the wing of pain there is healing; for the wing of hurt there is forgiveness; for the wing of pride there is humility; for the wing of giving there is taking; for the wing of tears there is joy; for the wing of rejection there is acceptance; for the wing of judgment there is grace; for the wing of honor there is shame; for the wing of letting go there is the wing of keeping. We can only fly with two wings and two wings can only stay in the air if there is a balance. Two beautiful wings is perfection. There is a generation of people who idealize perfection as the existence of only one of these wings every time. But I see that a bird with one wing is imperfect. An angel with one wing is imperfect. A butterfly with one wing is dead. So this generation of people strive to always cut off the other wing in the hopes of embodying their ideal of perfection, and in doing so, have created a crippled race.
Life is a blank canvas, and you need to throw all the paint on it you can
The key to your happiness is to own your slippers, own who you are, own how you look, own your family, own the talents you have, and own the ones you don’t
If you keep saying your slippers aren’t yours, then you’ll die searching, you’ll die bitter, always feeling you were promised more. Not only our actions, but also our omissions, become our destiny.
Now it’s your turn to share with the Thugs, how do you keep things simple, peaceful and in perspective. Please share it with us by leaving a comment below.
