“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
― John F. Kennedy, Inspirational Quotes
Gratitude is the feeling of being grateful to someone for something. Showing gratitude through our actions is a sincere way of expressing gratefulness.
By uttering appreciative words, we can express gratitude, but when we do it, we actually mean it. Through our deeds, we can live or stand for what we feel and be thankful.
Express your gratitude – in words and action for it costs us nothing, but gives countless benefits.

“Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.”

Love without depending,
Listen without defending,
Speak without offending,
Give without ending,
Build without rending.”
― Nina Roberta Baker, Positivity Quotes, Motivational Quotes

When someone wants you to listen to him, do it without defending. Listen to his opinions, feelings attentively. Do not interrupt or try your suggestion in between.
When you speak, speak carefully without hurting others’ feelings or inner sentiments. Because we do not know the situation another person might be going through. Our words may hurt them unintentionally if we speak without thinking.
Continue bestowing your love, care or any help you can offer to others. Build the empire of your relationship with trust, respect and never ending affection.

“It is wise to direct your anger towards problems – not people; to focus your energies on answers – not excuses.”
― William Arthur Ward, Motivational Quotes
Focus, when directed on the right thing, lets you have the control over your life and resolve the problems. Also we can have a better understanding of the situation so that solutions can be easily found.
Most often we point out our anger towards people rather than the real problems, thus complicating the situation further.
Our focus should be on the problems, not on the people. It should be directed on the solutions, not finding excuses.
Being the controller of your own life, choose where to invest your energy.
Thought for the Day: 23 July 2022
Life is harder to live for others but when one is able to live, act and think for others, his life becomes greatly enriched and blissful.
Our life becomes more meaningful and auspicious in serving others. Putting aside one’s own personal desires, the one who has been contributing for the better cause of human life through his knowledge, charitable donation or other good reasons in the society, is great.
Serving others does not mean fulfilling everyone’s wishes, but it means helping them to live a meaningful and happy life without losing our individuality.
Our life is not only to live for ourselves; try to live for others and achieve a higher purpose in life.

“F-E-A-R has two meanings: ‘Forget Everything And Run’ or ‘Face Everything And Rise.’ The choice is yours.”
― Zig Ziglar, Motivational Quotes
Though FEAR indicates a negative emotion, however deeper inside, it means “Face Everything And Rise.”
Pain and troubles of life can be lessened by dealing with the root cause of it; not from running away.
When one runs from or ignores it, he ends up living in regrets, helplessness and feeling of unworthiness.
Let go of pre-existing ideas that don’t make any sense, know your power, look at the things you are afraid of and remind yourself that you can face it. Then you can rise up and shine across the difficulties and live life gratefully.

― Martin Luther King, Jr., Positivity Quotes
As said – Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can remove it; hate can never drive out hate in any way.
Hate cannot clear hate from anyone’s heart. Instead it gives rise to a never-ending spiral chain of hate, violence and difficulties, thus increasing complexities in life.
Humanity, fraternity and social relationships die along with communal hatred. Also peace is disturbed in the world.

― Ayn Rand, Motivational Quotes
A creative man is innovative, inventive and bold enough with the ability to make new ideas out of his experiences and knowledge for making changes.

“The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.”
― Socrates, Happiness Quotes
When we limit our desires, we actually learn to appreciate simple pleasures and be satisfied with little things.
Happiness is not necessarily a result of having more. Sometimes when we have more, we forget to enjoy the real essence of things we have, and thus end up being unhappy.
Remember, happiness seldom comes from external recognition or praise; but lies within, internal satisfaction and gratitude.
Thought for the Day: 15 July 2022
When everything is moving smoothly, all are happy, grateful and optimistic; but what when things are complicated and just opposite? That is the high time we truly need to seek the light – light of hope, positivity and wisdom.
In life, everyone has to grieve, adapt the circumstances, reflect and grow.
Explore your inner-self, find what works the best in the situation and take steps further. Stay hopeful and find a way for the enlightened tomorrow.

“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.”
― Leo Buscaglia, Wisdom Quotes
Worrying unnecessarily is a destructive habit that robs peace and joy of today and darkens the future.
Many things in life are beyond our control. For such things, we must let them go as worrying won’t help the situation sort out.
For the things under control, we can work and solve the problem. So either way, there is no need for worrying.
Our today’s worry does not help us face tomorrow’s problem nor let achieve our goals. Instead think what you can do at present for the secured future.
Thought for the Day: 13 July 2022

Lies are complicated. It needs dramas, manipulations and overacting that when revealed may create many problems.
It would be wise to believe in simplicity and adore the pace of truth for the foundation of a better society.

“Wherever you place your focus, the rest of your mind, talents, abilities, and emotions will follow.”
― Cindy Trimm, Motivational Quotes
Our ability to stay focused on the intellectual or creative aspect of work helps us in executing important tasks in life as well as to excel at personal or professional level.
However, lack of focus can limit our performance. Also it stops us from getting what we deserve in life.
Facing problems at staying focused?
Focus on your dreams and purpose rather than problems and obstacles; automatically the rest of your mind, talents, abilities, and emotions will follow.
Thought for the Day: 3 July 2022
Thoughts are powerful. What you think, you become. If you think yourself miserable, you end up miserable; if you think of yourself as a champion, you will be a champion.
Our thoughts are the beginning and the end, make us or destroy us. They live with us, after us and even make us immortal.
Words are limited and less powerful than thoughts. We can ignore words but not thoughts.
Thoughts when backed up by right action can be the tool to change ourselves and the world around us. We become greater with our thoughts.
We are defined and shaped by the thoughts that constantly occupy our mind. Rediscover yourself, have higher thoughts and dream big.
Thought for the Day: 2 July 2022
Happiness is in those little moments of life that we often take as granted and realize how precious they were long after they are gone.
Be it waking up early in the morning, seeing the Sunrise, feeling the fresh air, going outings with close friends, watching movies or cooking favourite food for your loved ones; all these are the little things but give immense happiness.
We are merely aware of the beauty of these little moments of happiness in our life and we seldom take the time to appreciate them.

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”
― George Bernard Shaw, Sports Quotes
Those who play games and do exercises on a regular basis are biologically younger than those who don’t.
Age related decline in physical fitness is preventable and sometimes reversible through activity and exercise. Regular exercise is also good for your mind, memory, metabolism, immunity, and body balance.
Take responsibility for your health and wellness, and live a productive life. Instead of being frail, feeble and spending the entire day in a chair, play games, do some activity and live a engaged and productive life.
Stay Young! Stay Vibrant.
