Mentor tip on how to be happier — from the book, “The Happiness Equation” by Neil Pasricha.
I read that there are two types of people when it comes to stressors or obstacles in life:
One sees the obstacle as a failure or great disaster and think of it as the end of the world. They think, “Why me?” or they feel like they are a victim.
The second kind of person sees these obstacles as challenges. They figure out how to overcome the obstacle and have a vision of the big picture goal. They see obstacles as learning opportunities and contribute towards something greater and bigger in life.
It shows that the second kind of person experiences much more happiness in life.
Imagine how your life would be if you looked like this.
What if every problem, instead of seeing it as an obstacle, you see it as a puzzle piece and figure out how to make everything works together.
Difficult doesn’t mean impossible…Massive photovoltaic power station built on a fish farm put into operation in Zhejiang. It covers an area of 300 hectares, with a total installed capacity of 200MW. Its average annual production capacity is expected to reach 220 million kilowatt-hours. The new mode of power generation features PV panels installed above the pond, which serve to provide shade and facilitate fish farming under the water. The station can meet the power demand of 100,000 households, potentially replacing 7.4 tons of coal.

The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.

When the ego dies,
the soul awakes.
A Morning Resolve
I will try this day to live a simple, sincere and serene life, repelling promptly every thought of discontent, anxiety, discouragement, impurity, and self-seeking; cultivating cheerfulness, magnanimity, charity, and the habit of holy silence; exercising economy in expenditure, generosity in giving, carefulness in conversation, diligence in appointed service, fidelity to every trust, and a childlike faith in God.
O GOD (ALLAH)
Give me strength to live another day;
Let me not turn coward before its difficulties or prove recreant to its duties;
Let me not lose faith in other people;
Keep me sweet and sound of heart, in spite of ingratitude, treachery, or meanness;
Preserve me from minding little stings or giving them;
Help me to keep my heart clean, and to live so honestly and fearlessly that no outward failure can dishearten me or take away the joy of conscious integrity;
Open wide the eyes of my soul that I may see good in all things;
Grant me this day some new vision of thy truth;
Inspire me with the spirit of joy and gladness;
and make me the cup of strength to suffering souls;
in the name of the strong Deliverer, our only God and Savior, ALLAH.
