“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” -Gandhi
Can you imagine a world where everyone thought, said and then did everything?
How about a world where you think, then say, then do what you thought and said?
Would your life be different?
Where do you think you would be today in comparison to where you actually are?
Nobody knows what happiness is except the person who states it for him/herself, but this is a great start on your path to happiness. There’s a reason Gandhi started with though – because that’s where our lives are created. That’s our genesis. When we say our thoughts, they gain substance and start to form their shape in this world. Then when you do what you thought and said, something incredible happens…the entire world conspires to help you.
Pay attention to your thoughts, what you say and what you do. Also pay attention to what other people say and do. Then recognize when you and the people and things around you are in tune with one another. You may have a question about something, and then hear a random conversation at the local Starbucks where someone actually says the answer to that exact question to their friend. There’s a reason you overheard that conversation. Don’t let things like this pushed aside into the land of “coincidence” because it’s not.
The Kaizen Challenge:
Don’t believe me? Try it for one week. Really pay attention to everything that is said and done around you. What problems are you trying to solve? What questions do you have? The answer is looking for you, and waiting for you to pay attention.
If this happens to you this week, I want you to leave it in the comments below. The more you practice this, the more it will happen.
