Practical Ways to Save Time by Doing Less

Time is our most precious resource, the most valuable thing we possess. We all want it, and yet we use it so poorly.

We’re used to the hectic life we’re leading, and always find excuses like ‘I don’t have time.’ The truth is that it’s all we have, and although it’s limited, if used wisely it’s more than enough.

Practical Ways to Save Time by Doing Less, Let's Reach Success

Time is actually what you make of it. Do things you love, enjoy each moment, smile and laugh, spend time with your family, set and achieve goals, and you will never waste a moment in your life.

Unfortunately, it’s easier said than done. Productivity is a huge problem these days and with all the tasks we have to do, there’s just no time for us.

Then, as with every other complicated thing in our lives, we should simplify. We do that by eliminating what’s excess, and choosing less over more.

Here are 9 practical ways to save time by doing less:

  1. Stop planning

You can plan for weeks and never make the first step and do something to make these plans a reality. It’s a waste of time and most of the times things turn out in a completely different way.

Simplicity denies making plans because the future is so uncertain, we can’t be prepared for what’s going to happen. And instead of expecting, worrying and stressing over the future, we should live now by focusing on the present moment.

  1. Do one thing at a time

Multitasking is killing us. We can’t focus on more than one thing and the result is always bad.
By trying to do many things at once with the idea of saving time, you actually get nothing done properly. So you need to do them all over again.
But if you really concentrate on your current activity, you’ll be done in no time.

  1. Eliminate the unimportant tasks

Most of the things on our to-do list are not essential. Nothing will happen even if we don’t complete them.

Identify the things you do that bring you best results and help you and others in some way and eliminate the rest.

  1. Get rid of distractions

We spend too much time doing one thing because we can’t focus. The reasons are many – having too many browser windows, the TV is on, people coming in the room, we receive notifications on the phone all the time, emails, etc.

Only when you eliminate all these distractions while you’re working, will you have great results and save time.

  1. Stop complaining and worrying

You waste so much more time in complaining and worrying about the things you have to do than you spend in doing them.
Overanalyzing won’t change the fact that something needs to get done, worrying about not having enough time or failing won’t save you time.

The only thing you can do is to just take an action.

  1. Have less possessions

Throw away most of the belongings you haven’t used in the last 6 months. You don’t need them, they just take space in your life and are another thing to take care of.

Also, that means less buying. That equals more time and money and less problems.

  1. Let others do some of the stuff

No one said that you should do it all. Don’t feel guilty or uncomfortable to share the work with your family, colleagues or friends.

  1. Set your limit

There will always be something else that needs to be done. That’s why you need to set some limits.

Think of a number of hours and promise yourself to stop working after that even if you haven’t finished. Or work fewer days in the week.

  1. Change your habits

In order to live a simpler life and have more freedom and time, you’ll need to make changes in your lifestyle.

If you get up earlier, for example, you’ll have more time. You can do some stuff in the morning and then have free time.

By doing less you not only save time, but also have more energy, become happier and more peaceful, enjoy your life and people around you see that and you affect their level of joy as well.

This topic was inspired by another post (you can read it here) in which you can find more tips on how to save time by doing less.

If you have any other suggestions and time-saving tips, share them in the comments below.

Wasted Potential

“You can become and accomplish anything in life! Your successes, greatness, and potential are determined by you alone; and all of the characteristics necessary to achieve your goals and dreams already lie within you. Our success and potential is not determined by talent or ability, knowledge or money, race or gender, or even circumstance or setting – it is created, developed, and determined from within ourselves.”

 Matthew V. Toone

According to the Stanford Brain Institute the average person uses only 2% of his potential. Can you imagine that?

This means that the quality of life we have today is a result of these 2%. And the rest is just wasted.

Wasted Potential, Let's Reach Success

By Nattu @Flickr

Honestly, that doesn’t come as a surprise once we analyze our daily routines – getting up, brushing our teeth, going to work (usually to a job we don’t like), coming back, watching TV, eating junk food in front of it, staying in front of the computer after that and so on.
And if you look at the bigger picture the average person doesn’t do any significant activity or one that requires high mental performance. He literally lives on autopilot, does what he’s instructed and doesn’t even have to take decisions..

Now imagine what could happen if we use 30 or 40% of our potential? That will be tremendous.

In fact, I think we can. And all the geniuses and remarkable people these days, and in our history, have done it – they just found ways to unleash their potential and powers and use them to level up in life, create amazing things and become someone to look up to.

That can happen by transforming our lifestyle, changing it completely and starting to do the following things repeatedly:

  • grow spiritually;
  • learn new things;
  • read;
  • meditate;
  • change your habits;
  • eliminate the things that hold you back;
  • get rid of the limitations you set up in your mind;
  • ignore conventional wisdom;
  • live consciously;
  • focus;
  • have a vision;
  • experience new things;
  • go out of your comfort zone;
  • challenge yourself.;
  • conquer your fears by simply doing what you’re afraid of;
  • help others succeed;

These are things we’ve all heard of, but how many of us actually practice them every day?

The truth is that until we stop considering huge success and building the ideal lifestyle something impossible that we don’t deserve and are not good enough to achieve, we won’t have it.
Once we embrace our potential and eliminate hopelessness, unworthiness and mediocrity, we will get there through hard work and dedication.

Realizing and defining it

The first thing that stops us from awakening the giant within us is that we don’t realize what we’re capable of. We simply think it’s impossible and that thought itself prevents us from making the first step and beginning our journey to leading a legendary life.

The next thing is that we can’t define it. Here is what Jonathan Mead says in 7 Essentials for Living Your Fullest Potential:

“Most of us have heard something like this before: “You have a lot of potential,” or in school, “You have so much potential, work hard and you might realize it.”

The only problem is no one seems to tell us where to start or how to achieve our fullest potential. After all, potential is such an ominous term. You can’t measure it. You can’t quantify it. You can’t define potential.”

The simple act of becoming aware of our own abilities and powers can help us move forward and actually do something about it. And it always helps to have support and people close to you who believe in you, but in the end it’s all up to you whether you’ll be confident enough and try again and again until you succeed.

Believe

Every now and then we have epiphanies and a short but powerful moment in which we feel we’re worth it, we know there’s more about life than what we’re currently experiencing and want to do something about it immediately. But soon these feelings are gone and we’re back to our everyday life with its daily worries.

What we need to have to make a permanent change is the never-ending belief that we can do anything we want, become whoever we want and get anywhere we decide. That also means that we need to be constantly motivated.

Now think of what you will want to do if you could use 30-40% of your potential. That means performing 40 times better than you are now. And having much higher results in every area of your life.

You would be able to make more money, to learn new skills better and faster, to have great relationships, to maximize your productivity, start a new business and succeed, to have control over your habits and develop only healthy ones, to eliminate stress and be able to solve any problem, to be focused all the time on the things that are important and to be able to enjoy life at the same time.

That would be great. And it is possible. It requires hard work, dedication, sacrifices and strong mindset, but many people have gone there and so can you.   

So start working on your ideal lifestyle now and stay true to what you believe in. Soon you will see small changes going on, then come small but significant achievements. And after a while you’ll be able to see how you’re starting to get closer to the things you’ve always wanted.

How Focus Leads to Great Results (and How to Do It)

The sun’s energy warms the world. But when you focus it through a magnifying glass it can start a fire. Focus is so powerful! 

Alan Pariser

What is focus?

Well, let me start by explaining what the lack of focus is.

Many times when I’ve opened a new document and have started writing – with the whole idea in my mind and everything I need to keep writing for a long time, or when I’m in the middle of a great book on an issue that’s important to me (self-improvement, lifestyle design, writing, simplicity), I start doing something else.
Usually it’s a completely pointless action like browsing the Web, checking social media, or even playing Solitaire. Now that I’m saying it, it sounds even more ridiculous. It’s pure procrastination caused by the lack of focus on my main activity.

During the whole thing I realize that what I was doing at the first place is really important, and is actually interesting. No one makes me do it and I’m the only one that knows the exact benefits it may have on me – me learning new things, collecting ideas for writing, getting inspired, or motivated to take an immediate action, or writing a post, or an ebook that will become a success some day on my blog, taking big decisions to make changes in my life or way of thinking, etc.

These are really important things to me. And they will happen as long as I keep doing what I know I should do – constantly reading, writing and working on my blog.

But the one problem that slows the process and sometimes takes me a step back is my inability to be fully engaged in my activities and concentrate for a long time on the essentials.

It’s a combination of procrastination and brain laziness as people tend to have a short attention span and are easily distracted only because staying focused requires brain engagement and thinking.

I’m sure many of you will recognize this behavior. You may have experienced losing focus on different occasions but the final result is always the same – poor performance.

Trying to do many things at once is another example as you end up not finishing them at all or having bad results because you can’t concentrate on two or more activities.

To change that we need to find focus in daily life. To start being in the present moment no matter what we’re doing right now. To let go of distractions and concentrate on the essential.

How Focus Leads to Great Results, Let's Reach Success

By Chase Elliott Clark @Flickr

Only then will we be able to finish projects on time, to create (everyone creates in some way), to write/read/etc. with a purpose, to do daily tasks, to be more productive and get things done, to actually achieve results and be proud of ourselves.

So how do we find focus then?

Here are a few ways:

  • eliminate distractions

We’re surrounded by distractions at each moment.

You may want to do some paper work at home but that doesn’t mean friends won’t decide to call you for a chat or suggest to go out, also family members may enter the room all the time, there may be noises (the neighbor may be listening to music, moving furniture or else), you get notifications all the time and your phone makes sounds.

If you’re wondering what to do about it, start eliminating all these.

  • temptations

It’s also a kind of distraction but it’s usually your choice to be distracted by it. It happens every time you open a browser, check social media or email, turn on the TV or radio, etc.

The solution is to unplug, turn off, ignore and eliminate.

  • one thing at a time

Multitasking is an enemy of focus. Trying to do 2 or more things at once just doesn’t work.

If you want to find focus, do one thing at a time.

  • slow down

Being in a rush creates unwanted stress. It makes you think that you won’t be ready on time, you may do something wrong, etc.

So try to do things slowly. Breathe deeply and calm down before you start.

  • do less

Here is a quote from Tim Ferriss:

“Being selective – doing less – is the path of the productive. Focus on the important few and ignore the rest.”

We do so many things most of which are completely pointless. We think we’re busy but in the end of the day what have we actually done?

Simplify! Do less! These are the ultimate habits that will save us from the complexity and tension of daily life and will free us.

  • experience the moment

Many people choose to spend their present thinking about the past or worrying about the future. That brings stress, regrets and anxiety and ruins their present moment. Not to mention the complete lack of focus on what they’re doing right now.

Now and here is where we belong. We possess only this moment and our job is to make the best of it. I think the easiest way to learn to do that is to stop every now and then and look around. Try to see the bigger picture and realize how important the thing you’re doing is.

  • let go

To fully engage in your activity and finish your projects, you’ll need to let go of certain things that are distracting you, making you anxious and preventing you from getting things done.

These are things like your fears, regrets of the past, uncertainties and doubts, caring about what other people think, your need of control and security, and so on.

It’s not an easy thing to do, but it’s quite simple and an inevitable step on your way to focus.

There may be many other ways to do that or things and people that will help you concentrate. Different things may work best for you. Experiment by giving these 7 a try first.

Everyone deserves to feel the magic of doing something while being 100% there. And after that to see the sweet fruits of his efforts.

Three Little Habits to Find Focus

How to Get Paid to Do What You Love

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

Confucius

 

Are you doing what you love? Are you making a living from it?

Unfortunately, most people aren’t. Actually the average person thinks it’s impossible to do what you love and make money from it.

But I think it is. This self-limiting belief itself is something that prevents you from even trying to make a change in your current lifestyle.

And the only way to achieve the impossible is to believe it’s possible.

I think everyone is good at something he loves doing and has the chance to make it his dream job. It may not be easy, but it’s absolutely possible.

 

How to Get Paid to Do What You Love, Let's Reach Success

By Arya Ziai @Flickr

What’s more, it’s something you need to do in order to live a happy fulfilling life. You owe it to yourself, to the people you love – as this way you’ll be a better person and will have great relationships, and to the world and society in general – because you’ll be doing what you’re good at, will be inspiring others to do the same and will contribute beyond yourself.

In his free eBook The Zero Hour Workweek, Jonathan Mead explains how possible it is to start getting paid to exist. It’s titled this way because once you find what you love and start making an income from it, you’ll no longer consider that work. And you’ll never need to work a day in your life, but will still make money, help others, follow your passion and contribute to the world.

Here’s how he summarizes his main idea:

“It’s about getting paid to be who you are by leveraging your unique strengths, doing what you love, and finding a way to channel that so you can provide value to others while you’re doing it.”

And here are the main strategies he employed to start living a life like that:

  1. Clear message

Everything starts with a purpose. Without having something we’re passionate about, for which we’re ready to make sacrifices and take action every single day, we won’t achieve anything that will last long or find satisfaction.

You need to define what it is that you want the most and how you can reach others that are passionate about the same thing.

This can happen by thinking of what makes you feel alive, the things you enjoy doing and the people you resonate with, that want to see the same change in the world and need your help.

Your message must be crystal clear, remarkable, unique and sharable with others.

  1. Connect with the right people

As a part of his personal story, Jonathan mentions that targeting his message to the people in his field that are enthusiastic about the same things has been one of the biggest keys to his success.

It’s important to speak to the right audience and reach only those who are interested in what you’re saying, who’ll give you feedback, who care about the same things and who you’d love to have as readers/clients/virtual friends/etc.

  1. Focusing on the important tasks

Or as he calls it “ruthlessly prioritizing based on highest leverage activities”.

The only way to get paid to exist is to work on your most important tasks every single day. Doing things connected with your final goal will help you move forward and eliminating the unessential will help you stay focused.

  1. Choosing only remarkable ideas

Good ideas are just not good enough. Everyone has many of them every day. But you’ll make a difference if you choose the promising ones and do something to make them come true.

Ignore everything average and focus on something people want to know more about, are willing to share and you can offer your unique value.

  1. Build meaningful relationships

Find influencers and connect with them. But don’t forget to pay attention to people that are around your level too, as they might turn out to be your biggest fans one day.

  1. Give people what they want

The whole thing will be pointless if you’re doing it only for yourself. The point is to help others, give them what they want while doing what you love and making money from it.

Simply find a way to provide value to others by following your passion and doing what you’re good at.

These are the main things you should be considering while trying to build your ideal lifestyle and turn what you love doing into your dream job.

And here are the 3 main things it consists of:

Things you’re good at

It would be perfect if it’s something you’re naturally good at. Or as the writer explains in the eBook:

“We want to find a way to leverage our natural strengths to magnify our passion… By working from your strengths – rather than trying to improve your weaknesses – you’ll be a hundred times more effective.”

Things you enjoy doing

Nothing can be done well if it’s not done with a desire, joy and a positive attitude. The things you enjoy are the ones you can do forever without getting bored or losing motivation. That’s why you should choose one of them and start making it your main activity and a source of income.

Things you can get paid for

People must need what you can offer them in that field, there must be a market for that if you’re planning to make money from it.

Also, put giving value before getting the money of your followers. Try to offer something unique and helpful and in return people will be glad to pay you for it.

The whole process is not easy – it requires hard work, time and dedication, but it’s simple. And it’s the only way to your dream life.

 

Simplicity – The Key to Brilliance

We are all trying to get more of everything in life. And when we do, the desire increases and we want even more. This way satisfaction is never achieved and we become greedy creatures looking for ways to satisfy our needs.

But more is not the answer. Less is.

We try so hard to achieve more, be better, have more of certain feelings and qualities, possess stuff, bring more people into our life, have more things to do, speak more and get information all the time.
But we never actually experience any of that. And this makes it pointless.

That’s because of complexity. We’re overburdened. We can’t breathe freely, or slow down, or enjoy one thing at a time.

The solution lies in simplicity. Because it’s the key to brilliance.

Regardless of where you are in your life now, what you have and where you’re going, you need more simplicity.

Instead of adding, you need to exclude. And instead of keeping things and holding onto people, memories and ideals, you need to let go.

Simplicity - The Key to Brilliance, Let's Reach Success

By Leland Francisco @Flickr

Beauty comes with simplifying – when you get rid of everything fake that just doesn’t fit, and let the natural glow.

Freedom comes with simplicity. You’ll only feel free when you let go of everything that’s preventing you from moving forward – past, worries, judging, desire for control, etc.

Seeing what really matters will only happen when you exclude the unnecessary.

Simplicity consists of having less:

  • desires;
  • belongings;
  • worries;
  • fears;
  • words;
  • thoughts;
  • expenses;
  • daily tasks;
  • regrets;
  • stress and so on.

And all this can happen by learning how to let go of things you don’t need, how to get rid of the stuff that makes your days complex and to stop adding new things.

It also means that your mind will be clearer, you’ll be happier, will feel freer and in peace more than ever before.

And here are some practical ways to achieve simplicity:

  • the next time you want to buy something, ask yourself whether you really need it and whether it will make your life better in any way;
  • when you have many things on your to-do list take a minute every now and then to slow down, feel good about what you’ve already done and analyze if all the rest is worth doing. Maybe it’s just something you think you’re supposed to do, but nothing will actually happen if you leave it like that;
  • when you catch yourself thinking about the past or worrying about the future, stop and try to focus on the present moment, that’s where you create your future;
  • when you’re angry at yourself or someone else, practice compassion and forgive. This is the ultimate salvation and helps both you and the other person. It means letting go of what was so that you can embrace what is;
  • eliminate distractions and focus on what is important;
  • try to be honest with people and say exactly what is on your mind, otherwise you make communication so hard;
  • when things get a bit difficult to handle, instead of stressing over what might happen and be afraid of the result, try to be grateful for what is, to realize that it’s the right thing for that moment and to fully experience it;
  • if there’s someone in your life that only makes your life harder, try to spend less time with him and don’t let him affect you;
  • when the weather is bad, don’t feel upset, just accept it and let things go in their natural way;
  • instead of thinking of what is missing in your life, focus on the abundance of love, happiness, possibilities and things to be grateful for;
  • the moment something bad happens, learn from it, accept it and let go.

There are hundreds of ways in which we can practice simplicity. And the final result is pure joy, finding contentment in everything we do, being in peace with ourselves and the world and living in harmony.

So give it a try. Eliminate, reduce, get rid of things, and strive for less. That’s the real “more” in life.

 

Why It’s Not So Hard to Succeed

Many people aren’t successful because they are afraid to fail. Or because they give up after some time, don’t find the power to try one more time, listen to the nay-sayers, don’t believe in themselves, aren’t confident or think they aren’t good enough.

Well, most people are wrong.

Why It's Not So Hard to Succeed, Let's Reach Success

By Jeff Kubina @Flickr

Because success and happiness are possible. Every human being has the ability and potential to live a great life and do whatever he puts his mind to. But they simply choose not to do it. And they stay in their comfort zone – where nothing new, exciting or challenging will ever happen – for the rest of their life.

And if you start thinking about it and analyzing all the things that could go wrong, you can come up with a thousand reasons not to follow your dreams and work on your goals. But that is just ridiculous.

Remember that the only thing that prevents you from building the ideal lifestyle is your mind.

It will often play tricks on you and try to convince you that it’s not worth it. Your job it so recognize these thoughts, eliminate them and tell your mind that it’s all simple, easy and totally possible.

Soon you will have built the habit of positive thinking and will no longer have to fight your inner voice. Now it will be cooperating with you.

So you can think of many reasons to give up and consider success impossible. But here are a few that will tell you why it’s not so hard to turn your dreams into a reality and live happily.

  1. You can hack your life.

You can take control of every aspect of your life and find an easier and simpler way to do anything.

That may take a lot of time, experiments, failures and efforts. But the final result will be amazing. You’ll get in shape, be constantly motivated, full of energy, sleep well, train every day, become stronger, leaner, more intelligent, memorize better, become productive, outgoing, you’ll know how to make money and once you get that you’ll have the courage to start investing and starting new businesses, and so on.

Don’t forget that all the information you need is out there. Browse the Web for what you need and see how others have done it. Whatever you want in life, someone somewhere has already figured out how to get it. So instead of wasting a lot of time, follow his steps.

Watch videos on YouTube. Sometimes it’s priceless. Read books by people who have succeeded and take their tips. This way you’ll know what mistakes not to make.

  1. Most people are lazy and give up easily.

Of course, that’s awful statistics. But it’s true. And the best you can do is to benefit from it.

That fact is such a strong proof that success is reachable more than ever. Here is why:

The competition today is big. And it gets bigger every day. True. But only 5% of those who try succeed.

That happens for multiple reasons. People usually don’t even start their journey to success because they think they are too old/young/poor/weak/etc. or don’t have enough time/money/resources/potential. But when they do, most of them give up after one try, others lose hope and motivation. Some get easily distracted and lose track of what they do and eventually ditch it. Others may start doing something else instead. Or aren’t confident enough. Or don’t see any progress and after some time give up on their dream.

And that’s why only few make it until the end. They are the ones who are ready to dedicate a lot, to work hard, who stay persistent, concentrated and motivated.

Actually, as I think of it, this is a great natural selection. Because only the ones who are ready to handle success with all its side effects, and who will know how to react and behave with a lot of money, for instance, stay until the end.

So don’t give up now. You will succeed eventually.

  1. Opportunities are everywhere.

Another thing we take for granted are the countless opportunities we encounter each day.

Every next person you meet can offer you a position in his company that can lead you to your dream job. But for that you need to meet new people, know how to introduce and promote yourself and communicate easily.

At each moment you can think of a million-dollar idea. Your job is to notice it and start working on it so that you can make it come true.

Someone can offer you something you can’t turn down. For that matter you need to speak up, share your thoughts and make them public, try to reach influencers and so on.
You can start a blog, for example, and write about the things you’re passionate about. Soon someone can reach you, when you least expect it, with a great offer. It could be anything.

What I want to say is that the world is full of possibilities. And if we notice them and take them, great things will start happening.

So start going out more and talking with more people, start reaching people on the Internet, and whatever else you can think of.

That’s why it’s not so hard to succeed. What are your suggestions? What other reasons can you add?  

 

 

 

 

How to Live in a Non-Understanding World

Not long ago I was constantly feeling misunderstood. I blamed others, felt alone in my endeavors and thought it was unfair.
I was playing the role of a victim and often missed opportunities or got depressed because no one seemed to understand me.

How to Live in a Non-Understanding World, Let's Reach Success

By anurag agnihotri @Flickr

Some of you may have felt the same way at some point in their lives. Not being understood can be an awful thing once you focus on it and if you let it take control, it will prevent you from following your dreams.

But then I realized a few other aspects of life:

- there are all kinds of people and many won’t understand you the same way others won’t like you or approve your decisions;

- like-minded people are out there, you just need to look somewhere else;

- not having people with the same goals and desires doesn’t make you alone, they still love you, you just have another path to walk that is different from theirs;

- the world is definitely not responsible for that, neither are those who don’t understand you. It’s a natural thing and you don’t need to blame or judge;

- you’re not alone – many of the world’s geniuses, and the ones who created the masterpieces we admire today, had no one to encourage them and were often considered crazy. But that didn’t stop them;

- you can achieve whatever you’re after in life even without any support.

And here are the ways to deal with people who show no understanding:

  1. Walk in their shoes

Other people have problems too, often bigger than yours.
They have things to worry about, things to do, others to look after and many other things we don’t know about.

So instead of waiting for them to understand you, why don’t you try to understand them? To consider what’s going on in their lives, and help them.

  1. Ditch the expectations

You feel bad when you’re not understood simply because you expect others to understand you.

But think about it – who said that another human being, with its unique and totally different way of thinking, is supposed to agree with what you say or do, and even understand and support you.

When you get rid of expecting others to behave and treat you in a certain way, you will no longer be disappointed in their actions and reactions to what you do.

  1. Accept

I love acceptance. Once you see a situation through it, everything is okay.

Accept the people in your life as they are. Then you won’t expect anything from them.
If they don’t agree with you life choices, be okay with that. Because it doesn’t really matter even if they did.

After all, you want certain things, do something about them, and fail or succeed. And others have nothing to do with it.

Accept the fact that the world is a mixture of all kinds of people. Whatever you do, there will always be someone to disagree and many will not understand you.

  1. Stick to your beliefs

Under no condition, should you stop taking actions upon your dreams, passion and goals only because you’re not being understood by people in your surroundings.

Try to look at the bigger picture, visualize your dream as if it has already happened. Then you’ll remember why you started working on it at the first place and will see that it matters.

Also, most probably once you achieve it, others will see it has always been worth it.

  1. Understand yourself

As long as you do that, you won’t feel the need of others to understand you too. Your own approval is the only thing you need to keep going after your goals. You’re the only one who knows what is the right thing to do.

Having a good relationship with yourself consists of not lying to yourself, accepting, loving, caring for and appreciating who you are. If you can do that, you can also be in peace on the inside and that is all you need to succeed.
Inner peace is the highest happiness and no other person can do anything to ruin it.

  1. Compassion

Show compassion towards everyone you meet on your journey because you never know what he’s been through to get here.

Often the ones that don’t understand you are also not understood. Maybe they just need someone to tell them that everything is going to be just fine, to listen to them, send them love, appreciation and show them respect.
Once they feel understood, they’ll be able to open their heart, to be aware of other people’s desire for approval and to be more supportive.

  1. Let go

Letting go is a great thing to do as it sets you free and lets you experience life and enjoy it.

Let go of the need to be understood – because not meeting it causes you suffering, of the expectations, judging others, blaming the world or society, worries, fears, etc.

Instead, embrace simplicity, mindfulness and compassion. Be grateful for the people in your life because even if they don’t understand you, they are there for you. They love you and this is the ultimate understanding because they are not trying to change you.

Appreciate having them in your life and never feel alone again.

Life becomes better and simpler once you implement these things. Change your attitude and you’ll be unstoppable.

Dealing with not being understood this way is noble, beneficial to everyone and makes the world a better place.
