Infographic: Gratitude is Good For Your Health

by admin

There are all sorts of reasons that you are prompted to tell someone thanks—you receive a gift, someone does a kindness that you didn’t expect. But showing gratitude is more than just good manners; exhibiting gratitude can actually do good things for your health.

For starters, there’s willpower: You’ll have more of it and be more thoughtful in your decision making. You’ll cement your relationships, too—counteracting loneliness, mitigating aggressiveness, boosting compassion. You’ll also feel better, with impact that extends to your immunity. More gratefulness also means that you’ll fall asleep faster and stay asleep with fewer disruptions.

There are ways—journaling, challenges to name just two—to boost gratitude, and this graphic can help.

We all SHOULD and MUST follow UBUNTU: Learn and change your LIFE

by admin

Life is amazing and beautiful and there are learning in every nook and corner on this world.

Similarly, I learnt something the other day about Ubuntu, a wonderful concept.

What is it?

Here’s learn and embrace humanity via a story.

An anthropologist studying the habits and customs of an African tribe found himself surrounded by children most days. So he decided to play a little game with them. He managed to get candy from the nearest town and put it all in a decorated basket at the foot of a tree.

Then he called the children and suggested they play the game. When the anthropologist said “now”, the children had to run to the tree and the first one to get there could have all the candy to him/herself.

So the children all lined up waiting for the signal. When the anthropologist said “now”, all of the children took each other by the hand ran together towards the tree. They all arrived at the same time divided up the candy, sat down and began to happily munch away.

The anthropologist went over to them and asked why they had all run together when any one of them could have had the candy all to themselves.

The children responded: “Ubuntu. How could any one of us be happy if all the others were sad?”

Ubuntu is a philosophy of African tribes that can be summed up as “I am what I am because of who we all are.”

Bishop Desmond Tutu gave this explanation in 2008 :

“One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can’t be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality –

Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.”

This is the true spirit of human development and cause of human evolution. Ubuntu. Once again, we are proud to say Ubuntu, I am what I am because of who we all are.. This is not a story as such, but a feeling to be expressed.

Ubuntu…it is!!!

Beautiful message: The poor boy: The rich boy

by admin

You were born in a first class hospital, I was delivered at home, we both survived.

You went to a private primary school and I went to a public school, we both ended in the same high school.

You woke up from the bed and I woke from the floor, we both had a peaceful night rest.

Your outfits are all expensive, mine are all simple and cheap, we both still cover our nakedness.

You ate fried rice and roasted chicken, I ate local made food but we both still ate to our satisfaction.

You ride on Lexus jeep, Range Rover, G Wagon, Hummer Jeep and I use public transport but we still got to our various destination.

You may be reading this post from your Sony xperia, BB Z10, Q10, Samsung Galaxy 6edge, IPhone6+ and I typed it with my Touch one broken screen, we still see the message.

Lifestyle is not a competition and there are different ways to get a lot of things done, different lanes all leading to the same destination. Just because your neighbour is doing things faster does not mean you are failing.

Happiness doesn’t come from having everything, but making the best out of what you have, it’s all about how you see yourself.

Happiness is not having what you like. Happiness is liking what you have and being content…
Courtesy says
You must never ask a woman her age and a man his salary.
Do you know why, Have you ever thought about it..
Well here is a beautiful insight…
It is wrong to ask a woman her age because she hardly ever lives for herself!
And it is wrong to ask a man his salary because he hardly ever spends on himself!.

Inspiring Story: A Beautiful Message which will make your day

by admin

Arthur Ashe, The Legendary Wimbledon Player was dying of AIDS

which he got due to Infected Blood he received during a Heart Surgery in 1983!

He received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed:

“Why did God have to select you for such a bad disease??”

To this Arthur Ashe replied:

50 Million children started playing Tennis,

5 Million learnt to play Tennis,

500 000 learnt Professional Tennis,

50 Thousand came to Circuit,

5 Thousand reached Grandslam,

50 reached Wimbledon,

4 reached the Semifinals,

2 reached the Finals and

when I was holding the cup in my hand,

I never asked God
“Why Me?”

So now that I’m in pain how can I ask God “Why Me?”

Happiness keeps you Sweet!!

Trials keep you Strong!!

Sorrows keep you Human!!

Failure keeps you Humble!!

Success keeps you Glowing!!

But only,
Faith keeps you Going.

Sometimes you are
unsatisfied with your life,

while many people in
this world are dreaming
of living your life..

A child on a farm sees
a plane fly overhead &
dreams of flying.

But,
A pilot on the plane sees
the farmhouse & dreams
of returning home.

That’s life!!
Enjoy yours…

If wealth is the secret to
happiness,

then the rich should be dancing on the streets.

But only poor kids
do that.

If power ensures security,
then VIPs should walk
unguarded.

But those who live simply, sleep soundly.

If beauty and fame bring
ideal relationships,

then celebrities should have the best marriages.

Live simply.
Walk humbly.
and love genuinely…!

Is Life only about Success, Wealth, Fame? Steve Jobs had it all, but his last words will make you THINK

by admin

Hello all wonderful readers of SuccessYeti.com.

I would like to begin by wishing everyone a very Happy Diwali. This festive season, may you look within and light up the darkness and spread love.

As I pass years on this beautiful planet and meet different people and situations, I often introspect on the meaning of life.

Everyone has his or her version and I respectfully take note of everyone’s thoughts. I also dig deep into the pages of biographies and autobiographies to seek knowledge from the men and women who have walked the extra mile.

I have realised that mostly all, especially in today’s consumerism injected world, are gripped by the constant chase for success, fame and wealth. Fuelled by ambition and the undesirable lust for material possession, humans are ready to go to any extent, even drop their basic values, to be on the top of the pseudo societal ladder of triumph.

In my personal life, I have met many people who have been blessed with material prosperity, but have also owned wrinkles of worries and restlessness in abundance, thanks to constant disregard for family, friends, people and of course, health.

I feel being ambitious is very good, but not at the cost of health and happiness, for self and others.

Being a twitchy owl on a cosy bed in a fancy hotel in Las Vegas is not worth it. End of the day, peace and happiness are the necessary life energies.

One needs to pause, introspect, contemplate, and meditate to evolve as a person along with professional leaps.

Growth should be simultaneous and all encompassing. The perfect balance is needed.

It’s better to understand that as humans, we need peace in mind and lead a healthy life. One needs to understand it before time runs out.

And my thoughts got a certain validation when I read about the great Steve Jobs’ apparent last words. The Apple founder was an epitome of success, but for him, life had a different meaning.  Here’s what he said: ( we do not confirm if the words were indeed said by Jobs, but yet we thought of sharing it with readers given its importance pertaining to life and its meaning)

Steve Jobs’ Last Words –

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world.

In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…

Should be something that is more important:

Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days …

Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.

The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me.

What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.

That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.

Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.

What is the most expensive bed in the world? – “Sick bed” …

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.

Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – “Life”.

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – “Book of Healthy Life”.

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends…

Treat yourself well. Cherish others.

Wow, touchy indeed!!!

So what are your thoughts on life? For me, it’s being happy, humble and fit. Rest all will be taken care by the universe. Have faith and live life to the fullest.

Cheers to all.

-Siddhartha Laik

  

 

10 Signs That Tell You Surely Are An Optimist

by admin

Optimism is more than just talking positive things…Optimism is a trait of some people. They know how to have control over life because their attitude and actions spin around wishing for good and bright things of life.

Like Winston Churchill said, “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity;
an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”

You wake up fresh in the morning

You are not that person who would let yesterday’s woes affect your today’s morning. Every day is a new day for you and so you love waking up fresh and rejuvenated.

You get things done

Delaying and postponing things is not your cup of tea. You do and tell others as well to “get it done”!

You talk positive

Definitely, you do. You love talking about brighter aspects of life. You love discussions on spirituality, success, contentment, happiness, etc. You motivate others; you give hope to people when they are in despair.

An article written by the most famous Indian wrestler, Sangram Singh who won the Commonwealth Heavyweight Championship:7 tips from Sangram Singh to be positive in life

You do not whine

Complaining, cribbing and whining are a waste of time for you. You love solutions. You are a result orientated person and since you are so optimistic, you are always capable of fixing problems.

You are happy from within

You are a genuinely happy soul. Because you are evolved! Reasons and external factors do not govern your happiness. You have gone beyond those matters. And since you are so happy, you brim with energy.

You attract positive people

Your powerful positive energy attracts positive people towards you. You avoid being in the company of naysayers and pessimistic people. Your friend zone, colleagues and people whom you meet in daily walks of life are similar minded.

Your attitude is full of gratitude

thank-you-gratitude

One of the hallmark traits of optimistic people is that their grateful nature. You never forget to thank people, your deeds are full of gratitude, you believe in giving away and you respect people and their emotions. All these qualities altogether make you a wonderful person.

At bad times, you see possibility

optimism

It’s not that life has not hit you hard. Yes, you too had challenges, tasted failures and experienced sadness, but the one thing that always pulled you out is your undeterred hope. You have seen possibility and you have turned that possibility into an opportunity. You have succeeded and have sustained through highs and lows.

You have a smiling face

And lastly, that bright smile on your face radiates positive vibes all around. This smile keeps you fresh, nourishes your system, and uplifts your joyous mood.

Keep going friends…More positive vibes!
