1. When you create the intention within yourself to do something, do it as soon as you can, don’t delay or someone else will get the credit. There are many variances to this number, not only will someone else get the credit but you may forget, or worse yet, you may never do it because you waited so long you talked yourself right out of doing it.
2. When you cause someone else to suffer, you set in motion the effect of suffering the same way or more than what you caused. Many call this karma or reaping what you sow, it’s a law of life, you cannot plant corn seeds and get pumpkins, life just doesn’t work that way. I can see this all over the news at the present moment, people are spreading hate but yet want love and respect in return, it doesn’t work that way, you cannot spread hate and get love in return, only when you spread love will you receive love.
3. How much are we focused on others? This was a huge lesson for me this past week, I found that I am focused too much on other people. For example, I get upset when people don’t put in the same amount of energy I do, like when my husband doesn’t help out around the house as much as I do. I can get upset when people at work don’t try their hardest so some jobs only get half done. Why am I focused on them? I am in this world to do my best, not to sit and become emotionally upset because others aren’t living like I want them too.
4. Do you have a problem remembering the lessons you’ve learned? This was another huge lesson as I found that what I had learned wasn’t as fresh in my mind anymore, like how our memories fade over time. I’m not sure how to help this situation yet, writing the lessons I’ve learned down does help as long as I can remember where I wrote them down at. Trying to make a routine out of it for a while really seems to help but there are days that routines don’t work and you end up flying by the seat of your pants.
If anyone has any more tips on these subjects, feel free to add your comments and I will share them so they can help others. Life doesn’t have to be challenging, we can share our experiences and what worked for us and hopefully what we share will help someone else.
