Success is not only more money, a position and status. Success can also manifest as good, health, happiness and good relationships. It can manifest in sports, literature and meditation, not just in business.

Feeling happy and satisfied, having love and health, and earning enough to pay the bill and save something is also success. Though people might daydream of bigger things, this is what most people aspire to, and that’s fine and good.

Ambitions do not necessarily have to be big. We all have ambitions related to our everyday life, such as getting good grades at college, getting a promotion at work, finding love, buying a new car, or moving to a new house in a new neighborhood.

To accomplish our ambitions and get what we want we need motivation. a positive mindset and perseverance. We also need to truly believe that we can get what we want.

Reading quotes about motivation, success and accomplishment, thinking about them and letting the words seep into the mind can impact one’s attitude and behavior. That’s one of the reasons why we love quotes.

Here you can find quotes about accomplishment, motivation and ambition.

Read the accomplishment quotes attentively and often, so that they impact your mind and affect your subconscious mind. Think about them, and apply their advice in your everyday life.

Listen Again: Through The Looking Glass

Original broadcast date: Friday, March 19, 2021. Our senses can only take us so far in understanding the world. But with the right tools, we can dig deeper. This hour, TED speakers take us through the looking glass, where we explore new frontiers. Guests include astrophysicist Emily Levesque, wildlife filmmaker Ariel Waldman, psychedelic-assisted psychotherapist Rick Doblin, and science fiction author Charlie Jane Anders.

A Couple Drops in the Bucket: How to Resolve Conflict With a Friend

We were all in our cramped, college student-sized apartment kitchen. My two roommates, my closest friends, were sitting on the floor dying a couple of shirts and a pair of shoes. Leaning against the counter, I watched my two friends who sat next to their swirling black concoction of dye, water, and clothing like two young witches next to a Tub-A-Ware cauldron. They had a mission, but I was simply there for company. Apart from the heels of a pair of sneakers, the liquid was too dark to see below the surface. An unpleasant aroma drifted about our kitchen, something like old lake water and something burned. Through it all, we sat together on the floor. We talked and joked, laughed, and gossiped. It was a fun evening for the three of us.

When the clothes had spent their allotted time in the dye, my roommates began to pour out the used water and tried to squeeze out as much from the saturated clothing as they could. During this process, one of the girls somehow accidentally sent a handful of drops flying in my direction. These drops collided with my sweater, my favorite sweater that had been gifted to me long ago, instantly being absorbed and dyed. I exclaimed with panic, for I did not want my light grey sweater to be awkwardly spotted with black dye. My friend, the accidental propeller of those droplets laughed and played it off, saying it wasn’t her fault, that she didn’t mean to, and it “wasn’t that big of a deal anyways.” However, I felt the opposite, so I immediately took off my sweater and sprayed it with spot-stain remover. She laughed and said I was acting childish, panicking over something so simple. My other roommate told me the best way to wash out the dye after the stain remover and worked its magic. I then went to my room for the night.

Later that evening, the culprit of the splashed dye droplets wanted to know why I had left and not returned to spend time with them, just as we normally would almost every night. After telling her that I was upset with her, she explained that it was entirely unintentional, and her dismissive words weren’t meant to hurt me.

I felt as though I was being misunderstood, and it made me even more upset because her intention didn’t remove blame or pain. It wasn’t the dye that had truly hurt me. It wasn’t the words she had said. It was the shrugging-off of my worries that had hurt. It was the fact that she didn’t feel bad, that she attempted to remove guilt from herself and the significance of it all instead of apologizing for what had happened. I could recognize that even though it was my favorite sweater, it wasn’t something that would make me truly upset with her, but it was the lack of concern and any noticeable amount of regret that hurt me.

Of course, this conflict was eventually resolved. We had been good friends for a long time and this wasn’t more than a couple drops in the bucket. We had had conflicts, difficulties, and fights, but we knew how to straighten things out and come back together again. Throughout all of this though, I felt like there was an important lesson to be learned about intent. Intent does not always determine the effect your actions have on others. I feel like it is often used as a defensive position, as people don’t often “intend” to offend or hurt another person, especially friends, but it doesn’t take away the physical or emotional pain someone feels. This is even more prevalent nowadays in our social and political climate. Friends, relatives, coworkers, peers, fellow students… People of all kinds too quickly attempt to belittle their own wrongdoings or attempt to justify hurtful words or actions by claiming to be “too good” to do something wrong over the fear of being perceived as someone that isn’t respectful to others. Too often do people belittle the harm they have caused by saying things like “Well I wasn’t trying to be racist”, “I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings”, “What I did wasn’t meant to make you feel excluded”, “I would never want you to feel violated” as if stating their intentions after the fact will change what has already happened.

This detrimental mindset, that intentions without malice inhibit harmful actions, aligns with the idea that those who admit to wrongdoings admit to being bad people, for those without malice can’t be blamed for their own harmful actions. But this isn’t accurate. All people make mistakes. Everyone will mistakenly hurt someone else in their life. A good person is the person that addresses those mistakes, identifies the pain they have caused, and does what they can to be comforting and prevent harm in the future. This is where growth can occur. If you’re too afraid to have any of your actions be perceived as hurtful, or too afraid of the idea that your actions, no matter what your intent was, could have been harmful, how will anyone ever have the courage to learn how to be a more thoughtful and more kind person? This isn’t to say that expressing regret, remorse, and apologizing will fix whatever has happened, but it will immediately make the one offended recognize that you truly wish they weren’t experiencing the wrongdoing that had upset them.

All friendships will encounter conflicts and disagreements; every party will eventually be wronged, or at least feel wronged, and long-lasting friendships will be the ones that engage in repentance. It is the first step in correcting wrongdoings. Even if it seems like “crying over spilled milk”, or spilled dye in my case, friendships will sometimes require you to swallow your pride and make a sincere apology. If you care for them, then you know a couple of seconds of embarrassment is well worth the intimacy of friendship.

What Is Conscious Living and How to Practice It?

What Is Conscious Living

Pin

Conscious living means living consciously and acting attentively, not in an automatic, unconscious way.

Most people carry out most of their activities in an unconscious, automatic way.

I don’t mean to say that they are unconscious. They are conscious, but are not fully aware of themselves, their actions, and the world around them.

Let me ask you. Are you aware of all your thoughts? Are you in control of your reactions? Are you always focused on what you do?

  • Living consciously means being aware of your thoughts and of your actions, your habits, and your reactions. It means becoming more aware of what you are thinking and doing, instead of acting impulsively and without thinking.
  • Conscious living also means being aware of what is happening around you, aware of the people around you, and the words they say. It means becoming more aware of the environment in which you are living, acting and working.
  • Conscious living expands and sharpens your awareness of deep truths, the meaning of life, your inner self, and your real essence.
  • Conscious living is also the way to spiritual awakening.

There are various ways to help you live consciously. Two of the main ways are meditation and mindfulness.

This website is all about conscious living, even if this is not mentioned explicitly in the articles on this website. It is also about living a positive lifestyle. In some way, conscious living and a positive lifestyle are interconnected.

I have written about living a positive lifestyle in another article, and here, I would like to focus on conscious living, what it means, and how to adopt it in your life.

You can find here, at this website, all the tools you need for conscious living. This includes advice and exercises for increasing your willpower and self-discipline, learning to think positively, mastering manifestation and creative visualization, and acquiring inner peace and freedom from nonstop thinking.

Of course, you can also find here guidance and information about meditation and mindfulness.

All these tools and skills have much to do with enhancing conscious living.

Living Conscious Require a Peaceful Mind

It is possible that my description of conscious living is a little different from what other writers say. I am talking about what I consider to be conscious living.

As said earlier, conscious living means living your life consciously, being aware of your thoughts, aware of your actions, and thinking before speaking. It means possessing self discipline, willpower and motivation, and acting consciously, not in an unconscious manner.

This requires that you focus on your actions, instead of doing them absentmindedly. This means that you need to be more focused.

For example:

  • When you eat, focus on the act of eating.
  • When you drink, focus on drinking.
  • When you read, focus on what you are reading.
  • When you work, focus on your work.

Always focus on whatever you happen to be doing at that moment.

This means that you avoid doing one thing, while at the same time thinking about something else.

Your actions and focus should be aligned.

What does focusing your attention mean? It means being able to pinpoint your attention on one thought or activity without moving your attention somewhere else.

Focus requires training. As you train yourself, in time, this ability improves, and you will be able to discard the thoughts that you do not want.

Instead of wasting your time following every thought that pops into your mind you would be able to direct your attention to positive and useful activities.

If you keep training yourself, gradually, you will be able to clear your mind of thoughts, and experience the bliss and calmness of a peaceful mind.

Possessing a peaceful mind means being fully conscious and fully aware, but without thoughts running through your mind.

This is not a trance state. You remain aware of what’s happening around you, are aware of yourself, fully attentive and active. This becomes possible when the waves and agitations that the thoughts and worries create cease.

Steps to Conscious Living

I would like to suggest a few tips to help you improve your ability to be more conscious and aware.

Be aware of your thoughts
Strive to be conscious of your thoughts. In other words, pay attention to the thoughts that pass through your mind. You might not be able to do this always, but even if you are able to do so several times a day, that would be great.

Think before you act
Strive not to rush into anything without thinking first. Look at the situation before you act.

Do not react immediately
Take a few seconds before reacting in anger or resentment. This will give you time to regain your poise.

Willpower and self-discipline
Develop a certain degree of willpower and self-discipline. This would increase your ability to have more control of yourself, your thoughts, and your actions.

Focus and concentration
Always strive to focus on what you’re doing. This would make you more aware of what you are doing, and helps you do things more efficiently and with fewer errors.

Expand your viewpoint
Attempt to see everything from a wider point of view, beyond your ego, your beliefs, and what is possible or impossible.

Respect people and be patient with them
Respect people’s opinions and beliefs, even if they differ from yours. You can disagree with them, but this does not mean spoiling your relations with them.

Practice meditation
Find the time to meditate every day, preferably in the morning, before you start your day. Even only 10 minutes a day would do you good.

Practice Mindfulness
Mindful practices help improve your focus and awareness. They also help you become fully present. This means that you are fully focused on the present, on the here and now.

Your smartphone and the social media
Don’t immerse yourself in your smartphone. There is real life around you. Don’t forget the world.

Where your awareness is, that’s where you are. If you are always looking at the screen, you become captivated by it, lose your freedom, and let it enslave you. This is the opposite of conscious living and being free.

I am not telling you to stop using your smartphone. It is a useful instrument. However, you need to reduce the time you spend looking at the screen and start looking at yourself, your mind, and the world around you.

Get out of your comfort zone
Staying in your comfort zone can lead to stagnation. Getting out of it, no matter how uncomfortable this might be, would bring new experiences, new life and improvement.

Live in the present
You cannot change the past. Dwelling on the past can lead to remorse and unhappiness.

It’s much better to focus on the present moment and live in the present moment.

Focusing on the present and living in it enables you to enjoy it more. When you make your present a good place to live in, your future would improve too, because what we do now impacts the future.

Conscious Living Quotes

“Being conscious of your actions can save you a lot of wasted time and pleasant situations.”

“Conscious living means paying attention to your choices, decisions and actions. This helps you make better choices.”

“Dare to be optimistic. It doesn’t cost you money or time. It’s free, and makes you feel better, more confident and more energetic.”

“Meditation is the gateway to the world of inner freedom and bliss.”

“Clear thinking produces definite results. Muddled thinking leads to lack of results.”

“Make conscious living a way of life by becoming more mindful of your thoughts and your actions.”
