The ‘Enjoy Life’ Mindset

Have you ever looked at a clock carefully? The moving hand of seconds actually show time trickling by. I know we keep looking at the watch to time ourselves, our day, our tasks, our deadlines, meal times, sleep times and so on. However, the biggest truth evades us in this huge hustle and bustle of life’s market place. Time is limited and precious. Every minute, the present becomes the past and we hurtle towards the future. Which life does not have its troubles and challenges? Whose life is smooth? All we keep doing is pushing coal into the furnace so that our steam engine keeps chugging away. Do we take the time to look out of the window of our steam engine and see the fields pass by?

Life is meant to be cherished and enjoyed, it’s not a punishment or a burden. Enjoy life while you live it as you only get it once. Live life king-size and it does not need you to have a magic wand or the wealth of Alibaba’s cave. Life is all about your attitude and values. Develop the ‘Enjoy Life’ mindset. Here are three basic new values you need to create to live life with a smile and leave behind a glitter of positivity.

Treasure what you have

One of my passions is to observe other people and I have watched people on the roads carefully. Owners of premium cars sit at the wheel and look unhappy while passerby’s look at these gleaming cars with envy. I have seen people come out of shopping malls loaded with shopping bags looking miserable. I have never understood their glum faces. It all points out to one thing, wanting more and more of more and more. Here I am not just talking about the difference money makes but the real perception of abundance. Do we really ever count our many blessings and treasure what we have? The day you start appreciating what you have your life will change and you will find discover one of the most satisfying qualities a human being can possess- the super power called gratitude. You will then experience the joy in big and small moments

Enjoy what you do

We all talk of ‘work life balance’, yet I find people who enjoy what they do as a profession so much that they don’t go to work, but go to fun. We all work for a living but if somehow you plan your professional life well in a way that you get into something you like to do, everything changes. All of us are born with natural talent and aptitudes. When we align ourselves to the profession that uses our natural and inborn qualities, we tend to thrive. For human beings, success is a force multiplier. The more we succeed the better we become and then life becomes a continuous loop of becoming your best version. When you enjoy what you do, progress becomes an intoxication. You just go from one leap to another leap!

Pursue true happiness

Understand what makes you tick. Create your life’s purpose and pursue true happiness. These steps are critical for you to whistle through life. Make friends with your own self and understand your own self in the real sense. Identify your life’s purpose, then break your purpose to sub purposes. Finally create and monitor your purpose achievement map. Even baby steps you take to achieve your life’s purpose is a wonderful motivator. Similarly identify what truly makes you happy. You will need to work on creating your true happiness through your own actions. True happiness is living in complete harmony with your own mind, body and soul. Fly the sky of your dreams to achieve them, make fun and laughter an essential part of your daily routine, live and thrive in the ‘Enjoy Life’ mindset
