In my first article at Topsixlist, I talked about 6 Inspiring Reads To Improve The Quality Of Life, and if you’d notice closely, I said, “Books are constant and consistent of friends”. Indeed, they’re. For they bore the inspiration we always are in need of. I’m not going to list another inspirational set of books, though. But we’ve quotes, excerpts, from books, which teach us the minute life lessons, we happened to ignore most likely.
6 Inspirational Life Lessons You Need To Lead A Happy Life
The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything
And, why would you think that, I mean, the other way around. It’s not that the happiest people have the best of everything, but it’s through their appreciation of life, friends, things, memories, they make the best of everything. In short, if you’re happy, you’ll attract happiness and all the goodness of it. No matter, whether you’re down to rags or an epitome of luxury. A man down to rags could live happily, with the right mind-set. And a man, living luxuriously, could not enjoy all the comforts and riches, with the sick mindset. Have a peaceful mindset, have a happy heart, and you’d make a difference, you’d move the mountains.
Do not say, “I have no regrets”. Regret is inevitable; life hurts. The trick, my friend, is not minding that it hurts.
No human being that walked this Earth, got alive without being hurt. Not one! Find one, and I’d reward him. Well, the question isn’t about finding one or two. But how a man reacts to the regrets he faced, is what defines it, is what makes or breaks it. Life would bog you down in one phase or the other. And what you do in that phase, would define you.
Everybody has regrets, Life will hurt, but as far as you’re alive, and living well, would you overcome your regrets? What action do you need to take to be a man of least regret. Do what you want to do, do what you can. Take action.
A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking because her trust is not on the branch but on its own its own wings. Always believe in yourself
Well, I say, trust the branch on which you’re sitting on, but only temporarily. Enjoy the view and safety it offered from the dangerous animals. But do not get used to it. Never you do that. A storm could break it in a flick of an eye.
But, believe in yourself, that without the branch, you’d be able to fly. And there’re many other branches upon which it can temporarily rest. But again, storm is inevitable, you’d finally, have to trust your own wings.
It’s an excerpt of great value, it represents the ideal relationship between ourselves and our relationships, possessions and social and professional positions. Do enjoy all of them but don’t depend on them. Do not get attached to them. They can disappear anytime.
Encourage yourself, believe in yourself, and love yourself. Never doubt who you are. – Stephanie Lahart
Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn’t given freely by another person, it isn’t worth having.
Expectations would lead to hurt, would bog you down. Wouldn’t lead you anywhere. If you want your partner to love you more, if you want them to be attentive, to be affectionate at your impulse, when you want them. Well, let this truth hurt you, this is not love, this is not affection. This is hurting you as well as them. As you’re trying to control them. It’s not worth it. It’s not love.
One or the other day, their suppressed mind would blast at you like a volcano, and would actually come to know, what actually it is, what actually is seeking attention, love of affection about.
You’d feel the bliss, when it is given freely.
Never forget that only dead fish swim with the stream
You can walk with the herd, with the public, and would still live happily, would still exist on this earth. But would not live fully. Only the dead, meek minded people would follow the beaten path, the trodden trail.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. – Robert Frost

The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it
No good is ever achieved with that sick thinking. The same person that tells you that you can’t achieve so and so, could also tell you to go for it, fight for it, to achieve it. Your mindset, is the only thing that differ the two states, defines two persons, whether to keep demotivating that way or to achieve it.
Positive change in the mindset, your way of perceiving things could make all the difference. Let no story, let no bullshit hold you from doing what you always want to do.
So these are profound life lessons, if perceived with the healthy mindset would make you the man of assets, would define you at your best.
