A New Chapter ……

“Thoughts are things; they have tremendous power. Thoughts of doubt and fear are pathways to failure. When you conquer negative attitudes of doubts and fear you conquer failure. Thoughts crystallize into habit and habit solidifies into circumstances.” – Bryan Adams.

With the current global economy and financial markets undergoing unprecedented volatility and uncertainty in mind, feeling good is a great way on which we build our happiness. But happiness does not mean being up all the time. We can experience an overall feeling of happiness while feeling all sorts of different emotions. Say, we can be calm and happy or excited and happy at the same time. Or, we can be happy even though we don’t look happy or is completely silent about it.


You see, the fact is, our thoughts create our feelings. Good thoughts create peace and bad thoughts lead to mental tension, with no peace. Our thoughts are the basis of all our action and it creates vibrations in the atmosphere. For instance, thoughts of happiness, contentment and peace when spread into the atmosphere can be felt and experienced by others. So to save yourself from useless and painful feelings avoid negative thoughts whenever you can.

On another note, sometimes silence isn’t just good but necessary because silence do have a calming effect. For instance, when we simply do noting but meditate or yoga. When the mind is clear, the words we exchange will be filled with wisdom and significance. There will be no other feelings to cloud issues. So our words are the basis for clear communication and good relationships.

Lastly, as we embark into writing a new chapter of our lives, sometimes our thoughts are not real. You may probably agree nothing lasts forever. But one must be hopeful though …… 

“Since we cannot do anything about the length of our lifetime, why not do something about its width and depth.”

Thank You for visiting “Have A Dream” and may you have one of the most successful and fruitful year in 2013 !!!
