How to make your life better and sweeter

13 October 2015, 15:40 Anne Muigai

Successful people have one major thing on their lips- a smile!

A smile helps them think clearly and positively. Smiling does not mean that everything has worked smoothly, or all set goals are attained; it signifies contentment and resignation of the unexpected. A smile comes from their way of thinking and how they perceive the world and their choice of associates.

In almost all walks of life, whether in business, romantic relationships, or family, one key difference between successful and non-successful people is their way of thinking. Thinking determines what we achieve and how fast we achieve it. It is needless to say that our way of thinking determines our capacity to achieve what we set out to achieve.

Everything begins with a thought - whatever we think determines who we are; irritable, tolerant or understanding. Who we are determines what we do; our reactions towards others and situations. Our thoughts determine our destiny; what kind of life we live and how happy we become. People who go to the top, in fact, think differently from others. They often smile and think positively.

If we change our thoughts, we can change our feelings and our focus. A renowned top achiever I happen to know says that success does not come from our University degrees or family background, but rather from the quality of our thoughts. I agree. No matter how learned and educated you might be, only your thoughts determine how far you can go.

Someone put it: you can mix sugar and salt but ants will reject the salt and carry away only sugar. What is the point here? Select the right thoughts, the right people in life and you are sure to make your life better and sweeter. If you fail to achieve your dreams, change your ways not your principles. Remember, trees change their leaves and not their roots.
