Start From Here

Updated on July 29, 2010

Start From Here


Sometimes we think we have lost opportunities because of the past, because of age or for various other reasons.  The truth of the matter is that we can start to do better at any time we chose. There is no need to keep looking back. Nothing behind us will change. It is best to learn from the past and keep moving forward. The key is to get started now and to not waste anymore time.


There a number of ways to get started. We will cover just a few ways to get started. Firstly, we should always maintain a positive attitude. I know this can be hard in light the many challenges we face on a daily bases. To be more specific, try to find the silver lining in all situations. For example, something bad has happened at work.  We should not brood like many others, but let us look for some kind of light or lesson to be learned.


Another way to get started is to develop a good work ethic. We should try to stay self motivated. In another words, we are not working to please the boss only.  But we are working for a higher principal. We realize that we are working for our own enrichment. We see the ability to work as a benefit and a blessing. We see our work as a horizon that we are constantly moving towards.


Surrounding ourselves with encouraging family and friends will help to keep us going in the right direction.  We should make a habit of regularly calling positive family and friends.  We need to have an a list of people we can call that are motivators and plain talkers. By plain talkers, I mean folks that will tell you the truth even if it hurts your feelings.  These people will tell things that are for your own good.  We can get a life changing message for a family member or friend in less than a minute.


One the strongest ways of getting started in the right direction is through developing to strong habit of regular reading. Reading inspiring writings opens our minds to increase thoughts and understanding.  It provides us with a spring board of wisdom to draw from. 

For example, something happens that is not good.  A regular habit of reading will give us a reference point on what to do next.  Our minds are amazing computers that hold vast amounts of information.  The more we read the larger our data base.


Another way to start from here is to take care of ourselves. By take care of ourselves, I mean we need to dress appropriate, wash our faces, speak correctly possible, walk with self confidence.  We have to keep our head up even in the most discouraging situations. All these actions will keep us moving in the right direction.  Our continual sound practices can develop life long habits.
