5 Ancient Beliefs for a Happier Life

Hello guys, I am back with another article. Today, I am going to tell about 5 ancient beliefs that we could adopt for a happier life.

1. Perception is everything

It is believed that there is no such thing as a good or bad event. Events just occur. How you are looking at them is going to make the difference.

So, if you are down all the time and doesn’t feel like nothing is going your way, chances are that you need to change your thought process and the belief system.

For example, let’s say you got fired from your job. If you are going to panic and think that your life is over, you have a problem. How you should be thinking is, “Alright. I got fired. This is not the end of my life. I can always find another job easily. This is a good thing. Now I can focus more on starting that startup I always wanted”. How you look at an event is going to make the difference.

Try be rationalize your thought process. You can easily remove all the garbage from your mind by rationalizing your belief system.

Don’t be overly optimistic like Parker from FRIENDS though 😂

2. Stop worrying about what you can’t control

You need to understand that you can’t control everything. Some things are going to happen outside of your control. You can’t do anything about them. You have to accept that and move on. Because worrying about something that is not in your control is just a waste of time.

I am a firm believer in taking responsibility for everything is one of the best ways to improve. But there are times where you just have to accept the fact that you couldn’t have done anything about it. Taking responsibility is great. Just make sure to never waste time worrying about something you couldn’t control.

3. You can learn so much from other people

There are a lot of things that you could learn from the people around you. Here I am talking about mentors or role models. It is always better if you can have a mentor that you could talk to and take advice. I believe that we at least always should have a role model. Someone whom you can loop up to. For example, my role model for the fitness field is Dwayne Johnson.

4. Accepting isn’t giving up

This is the same thing that David Goggins says about accepting the flaws. The first step to changing yourself is accepting that you suck

For example, you are fat and you want to get fit again. The first step is accepting that you are fat. Most of the guys don’t do this part. Without accepting the fact that you are fat, you are never going to be able to convince your mind to do whatever to change your situation.

5. Start with meditation. End with reflection

It is believed that starting the day with a small meditation session and ending the day by reflecting on what happened throughout the day and what can I do to improve that tomorrow.
