Before you sleep tonight, ask yourself that are you happy? What is your true calling? Think for a moment and the results will still probably surprise you. In the race to move ahead in life, you have neglected your inner self. You are juggling so many things at once that you have no time to interact with yourself or listen to the voice within.
You may possess all the ingredients that make you socially successful. However, there is hollowness and emptiness in your life that does not allow you to enjoy life. A spiritual deficit engulfs you and because of which you do not have peace and serenity of mind. You spend money and time and travel to distant places to discover the peace of mind.
However, the irony of their life is that they may own the latest phones, etc., but have no time to talk to their family members.

Lessons in Nature And The Present
Stars, dew-studded flowers and different shapes of the moon can teach you a very important and basic lesson in life as well. That lesson is that nothing last forever!
Therefore it is advisable that you learn the lessons from the past and then move on to the next. Don’t live or dwell in the past, because oscillating between the past and present leaves no time to focus on the present. Be in the here, be in the now!
Always focus on your present, while keeping only the practical things for the future in mind (like making appointments).
Other Things You Can Do...
You should keep experimenting with things and never be scared of failure. Failure teaches you lessons in life and by experimenting with new things; it gives space to your creativity. This leads to deeper understanding of the self and leads to fresh ideas.
Exercising regularly releases the negativity from your body and keeps you healthy. It is advisable that you exercise in the park as this keeps you close to nature and allows you to enjoy the chirping of birds, the rising sun, and dew-studded grass. Because you’re focusing on the beauty of your surroundings, and are away from all the negative energy and hustle and bustle of the city, you become more positive and happy.
It is also advisable that you break your difficult goals into short-term goals. For instance, if you wish to save 5,000 dollars annually, break down your saving plan on monthly basis. It will make your saving plan realistic and the chances for success improves.
Remember, self-control is an attempt or an effort that’s intended to help meet a goal. Failing to control yourself, or maintain self-control is just what it is...a failure. So don’t forget to forgive yourself if you do fail, pick yourself up and try, try again!
