It is not easy to forgive others when it’s their fault, but you know the pleasure it gives when you just let it go, is priceless!
Whether it is office or your personal life, just move on if someone annoys you. As more you get into this practice the happier you’ll become. If you do not let annoying habits of others affect you, no one can stop you from being happy and success would follow you easily 🙂
Some of the key ways to help you practice this are:
Whatever happened would you remember it after five years:
The sub heading explains it all! Would you really bother and crib about it five years from now? In 99.9% cases the answer would be no, so how about not bothering about it right away! 😉
Giving gives more happiness:
Whenever there are situations when I am asked to sacrifice, I remember one saying from Secret the Power, “The more you give, the more you get”. At times it’s ok to do something against your wish and liking. You’ll end up gaining through it.
However at the same time I also believe, do not crush yourself and do not sacrifice always, make others also learn the lesson of giving. This way you are actually helping them 🙂
Never bother about trivial things:
Life is all about achieving the big goals you’ve set in your life. Small things good, bad or ugly are just to make the journey more interesting and worthwhile.
We need to be very careful that we do not get indulged in trivial things and get affected by them. That will just make us loose our focus on our big goal and would result in delaying the success we want to achieve.
For example, you want to appear for IIT and want to get through, say you score really low score in one of the mock tests and get so affected and discouraged by it that you forget about getting into IIT. However if you learn a lesson from it and take note of the mistakes you made you would in return benefit in abundance through it 🙂
Learn from your mistakes and don’t regret making them:
Its ok if you make mistakes, all you need to be careful about is ,do not repeat them. Infact the more mistakes you’ll make the stronger and wiser you would become, provided you do not repeat them.
Many a times we make a mistake and then spend days regretting about it and apologizing to others or if it’s the other person who has made the mistake then keep cribbing about it. Rather in first case learn from it and in the second case if the person is close to you and matters to you with lot of empathy explain him where he went wrong and forgive him don’t hold grudges that’ll just effect you negatively and no one else.
Learn to ignore and not get affected:
It’s with this point I started this blog and would also like to end.
This is the most difficult but the most critical and helpful. If someone says something annoying to you just ignore it and move on. Just make it practice, annoying and demeaning things should never affect you, just let it go! A lot of patience is required for this and lot of effort, but it’s just worth it!
You’ll end up being an extremely happy person and that too permanently 🙂
