9 Rules for Staying Positive

By Junaid Tahir

Straight to the point, below are my 9 self-created rules in order to stray positive and live a stress free life:

1-      I must develop the power of not looking back in the past to read the old chapters of life again and again because I cannot go back to my past to fix things. Whatever has happened has happened. Now is the time to review the lessons learnt once and then focus on to improve my present and future. 

2-      I have to stay away from negative souls which means I have to avoid spending time with people doing backbiting, criticising, cursing, complaining, conspiring, corrupting and complicating. (More about the 6 Cs can be read at this link). 
3-      I have to stop judging others for their actions. I must mind my own business instead of interpreting their actions and commenting in negative way. Thinking and speaking about others pollutes my thoughts and steals my peace of mind.
4-      I must develop the habit of gratitude. Which means that at the end of each day I must refresh the fact that I am better than billions of the people of the world. Being healthy, not in debt, sleeping on the bed, eating 3 times a day and using internet are the great blessings billions of people don't enjoy. (Some pictures here). People possessing high level of gratitude strengthen positive powerful thoughts.   
5-      I must spend time in reading good books, visiting websites on positivity, liking Facebook pages containing quotes and reading inspirational stories on daily basis. This will help remove negative impurities from my personality and empower my positive personality trait.

6-      I must stop being explosive and reactive to people and situations. I must stay positive about other's feelings and respect their opinions because every soul is unique in thinking so I should avoid imposing my thoughts to others. I must confess the fact that I can be wrong at times so understanding other's perspective be being empathic is very important for me to avoid building stress reducing my self-positivity-index.
7-      I must be positive about my circumstances even if they are not so good. I have to understand the fact that time does not stop so I have to start taking the necessary actions to expedite the change process. One thousand plans cannot be equal to the power of one great step taken right now!!!
8-      I must of focus on spiritual awakening acts such as a) frequent attacks of smiling, loss of ability in conflicts, loss of ability to judging others, ability to react to things as they happen instead of living in fears and so on.   

9-      I must focus on improving the quality of my thoughts because quality of thoughts determine the level of peace of mind. (Reasons for Negative thoughts can be read here)

The 3 Common Time Wasters At Work



No business can afford to have wasted time at work, especially when growth and profitability is directly tied to how productive your employees are. So check out our new infographic that identifies the top three reasons why people waste their time at work, so that you can find possible solutions to eliminating them.
 




Try Something Different


Most people are stuck right where they are. The reason they're stuck, however, isn't usually due to circumstances, incompetence, or lack of opportunity, but a simple unwillingness to change, to try new things.
We can make smaller, inner changes on a day-to-day, moment to moment basis – changes in our attitude, reactions, and expectations. I'm talking about being willing to take new risks, and face old fears.


Over and over again I hear people saying things like "I've always done things that way" or "That's just the type of person I am." These things are said as if they are carved in stone. It is amazing what you can learn by simply opening your mind and trying new things.
Starting today, tell yourself that you are going to do something, however small, a little differently. Perhaps you can be more friendly to the people you work with. Maybe it's not too late to overcome your fear of asking others to help you, or for their advice whoever you are, whatever you do, there is always something you can do a little differently.
You may find that you love the tiny changes you make and that you can open exciting new doors by making relatively small adjustments. If you're okay with the changes, you might want to try some other changes as well.

Keep Working

When you doubt yourself and your efforts, keep working. Your creative energy, persistently applied, will soon make the doubt go away.

When you're simply not making any progress, keep working. The breakthrough you seek may be just one more effort away.

When you've enjoyed a great success, keep working. Instead of resting on your achievements, make them even more meaningful by making good use of them.

When it feels like all your energy is drained, keep working. Your determined efforts will create their own energy.

When you're not sure what to do, keep working. The more you do, the more you learn, and the more clearly you'll be able to see the way forward.

Life works best when you keep working at it. Keep working, and keep making life truly amazing.

Story: It's Never Too Late

by STEPHEN in INSPIRATIONAL STORIES
It was an unusually busy day for the hospital staff on the sixth floor. Ten new patients were admitted and Nurse Susan spent the morning and afternoon checking them in.
Her friend Sharron, an aide, prepared ten rooms for the patients and made sure they were comfortable. After they were finished she grabbed Sharron and said, “We deserve a break. Let’s go eat.”
Sitting across from each other in the noisy cafeteria, Susan noticed Sharron absently wiping the moisture off the outside of her glass with her thumbs. Her face reflected a weariness that came from more than just a busy day.
“You’re pretty quiet. Are you tired, or is something wrong?” – Susan asked.
Sharron hesitated. However, seeing the sincere concern in her friend’s face, she confessed, “I can’t do this the rest of my life, Susan. I have to find a higher-paying job to provide for my family. We barely get by. If it weren’t for my parents keeping my kids, well, we wouldn’t make it.”
Susan noticed the bruises on Sharron’s wrists peeking out from under her jacket.
“What about your husband?”
“We can’t count on him. He can’t seem to hold a job. He’s got . . . problems.”
“Sharron, you’re so good with patients, and you love working here. Why don’t you go to school and become a nurse? There’s financial help available, and I’m sure your parents would agree to keep the kids while you are in class.”
“It’s too late for me, Susan; I’m too old for school. I’ve always wanted to be a nurse, that’s why I took this job as an aide; at least I get to care for patients.”
“How old are you?” – Susan asked.
“Let’s just say I’m thirty-something.”
Susan pointed at the bruises on Sharron’s wrists. “I’m familiar with ‘problems’ like these. Honey, it’s never too late to become what you’ve dreamed of. Let me tell you how I know.”
Susan began sharing a part of her life few knew about. It was something she normally didn’t talk about, only when it helped someone else.
“I first married when I was thirteen years old and in the eighth grade.”
Sharron gasped.
“My husband was twenty-two. I had no idea he was violently abusive. We were married six years and I had three sons. One night my husband beat me so savagely he knocked out all my front teeth. I grabbed the boys and left.
“At the divorce settlement, the judge gave our sons to my husband because I was only nineteen and he felt I couldn’t provide for them. The shock of him taking my babies left me gasping for air. To make things worse, my ex took the boys and moved, cutting all contact I had with them.
“Just like the judge predicted, I struggled to make ends meet. I found work as a waitress, working for tips only. Many days my meals consisted of milk and crackers. The most difficult thing was the emptiness in my soul. I lived in a tiny one-room apartment and the loneliness would overwhelm me. I longed to play with my babies and hear them laugh.”
She paused. Even after four decades, the memory was still painful. Sharron’s eyes filled with tears as she reached out to comfort Susan. Now it didn’t matter if the bruises showed.
Susan continued, “I soon discovered that waitresses with grim faces didn’t get tips, so I hid behind a smiling mask and pressed on. I remarried and had a daughter. She became my reason for living, until she went to college.
“Then I was back where I started, not knowing what to do with myself – until the day my mother had surgery. I watched the nurses care for her and thought: I can do that. The problem was, I only had an eighth-grade education. Going back to high school seemed like a huge mountain to conquer. I decided to take small steps toward my goal. The first step was to get my GED. My daughter used to laugh at how our roles reversed. Now I was burning the midnight oil and asking her questions.”
Susan paused and looked directly in Sharron’s eyes. “I received my diploma when I was forty-six years old.”
Tears streamed down Sharron’s cheeks. Here was someone offering the key that might unlock the door in her dark life.
“The next step was to enroll in nursing school. For two long years I studied, cried and tried to quit. But my family wouldn’t let me. I remember calling my daughter and yelling, ‘Do you realize how many bones are in the human body, and I have to know them all! I can’t do this, I’m forty-six years old!’ But I did. Sharron, I can’t tell you how wonderful it felt when I received my cap and pin.”
Sharron’s lunch was cold, and the ice had melted in her tea by the time Susan finished talking. Reaching across the table and taking Sharron’s hands, Susan said, “You don’t have to put up with abuse. Don’t be a victim – take charge. You will be an excellent nurse. We will climb this mountain together.”
Sharron wiped her mascara-stained face with her napkin. “I had no idea you suffered so much pain. You seem like someone who has always had it together.”
“I guess I’ve developed an appreciation for the hardships of my life,” Susan answered. “If I use them to help others, then I really haven’t lost a thing. Sharron, promise me that you will go to school and become a nurse. Then help others by sharing your experiences.”
Sharron promised. In a few years she became a registered nurse and worked alongside her friend until Susan retired. Sharron never forgot her colleague or the rest of her promise.
Now Sharron sits across the table taking the hands of those who are bruised in body and soul, telling them, “It’s never too late. We will climb this mountain together.”

Story: The Secret to a Peaceful Marriage!!


A world traveler once visited a small village in rural Mexico. At the local bar, Someone asked  him if he was married. 'Divorced, actually. Never could find
a woman I didn't end up fighting  with all the time.''Then you should go talk to the old couple that lives on the hill outside the village, rumor has it that they have been married over 60 years and they never fought this whole time.

' 'What ?? That's impossible!' Exclaimed the traveler. But the local swore to
him it was the truth and nothing but.The traveler just had to check it out, and
in the morning he knocked on the door of the little house on the hill and was immediately welcomed by the husband, who invited him for tea. After the traveler explained why he came to see him, the man smiled and nodded.

'It's true, we never fight.'

'PLEASE,' Begged the traveler, 'can you tell me your secret??'

'Well,' said the old man, 'It all started about 60 years ago, right after the wedding. We were riding our mule back to town and walking it down the
street when it tripped over a stone and my wife said to him

“That's one.”.
We kept riding and he tripped again on another stone, which made my wife immediately say:

"That's two."

Two minutes later, the mule trips over a stone again. My wife said:

“That's three.”

and then she pulled out a gun I never knew she had and shot it in the head without thinking twice! I was shocked and yelled at her:

"What the heck do you think you're doing?? We needed that mule, are you crazy???"

My wife looked straight in my eyes and said:

"That's one."

And we haven't had a fight since.'

Four Words that Make Life Worthwhile


Over the years as I've sought out ideas, principles and strategies to life's challenges, I've come across four simple words that can make living worthwhile.

First, life is worthwhile if you LEARN. What you don't know WILL hurt you. You have to have learning to exist, let alone succeed. Life is worthwhile if you learn from your own experiences - negative or positive. We learn to do it right by first sometimes doing it wrong. We call that a positive negative. We also learn from other people's experiences, both positive and negative. .  Learning from other people's experiences and mistakes is valuable information because we can learn what not to do without the pain of having tried and failed ourselves.

We learn by what we see so pay attention. We learn by what we hear so be a good listener. Now I do suggest that you should be a selective listener, don't just let anybody dump into your mental factory. We learn from what we read so learn from every source; learn from lectures; learn from songs; learn from sermons; learn from conversations with people who care. Always keep learning.

Second, life is worthwhile if you TRY. You can't just learn; now you have to try something to see if you can do it. Try to make a difference, try to make some progress, try to learn a new skill, try to learn a new sport. It doesn't mean you can do everything, but there are a lot of things you can do, if you just try. Try your best. Give it every effort. Why not go all out?

Third, life is worthwhile if you STAY. You have to stay from spring until harvest. If you have signed up for the day or for the game or for the project - see it through. Sometimes calamity comes and then it is worth wrapping it up. And that's the end, but just don't end in the middle. Maybe on the next project you pass, but on this one, if you signed up, see it through.

And lastly, life is worthwhile if you CARE. If you care at all you will get some results, if you care enough you can get incredible results. Care enough to make a difference. Care enough to turn somebody around. Care enough to start a new enterprise. Care enough to change it all. Care enough to be the highest producer. Care enough to set some records. Care enough to win.

Four powerful little words: learn, try, stay and care. What difference can you make in your life today by putting these words to work?

Story: Secret of Managing Stress



A young lady confidently walked around the room while reading and explaining stress management to an audience with a raised glass of water, and everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question: 'half empty or half full?'..... She fooled them all... "How heavy is this glass of water?" she inquired with a smile.

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance. In each case it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."

She continued, "and that's the way it is with stress. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on."

"As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden - holding stress longer and better each time practiced.

So, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don't carry them through the evening and into the night... pick them up tomorrow.

Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment. Relax, pick them up later, after you've rested. Life is short. Enjoy it and the now 'supposed' stress that you've conquered!
"

Health: 10 Common Habits That Damage Your Kidneys..


 
 
 
Kidney disease is one of the costliest illnesses in the world and managing kidney disease is very expensive.
 
Each year, lots of people die of kidney disease all over the world, and the number of people suffering from chronic renal failure,
and need dialysis or kidney transplantation to stay alive keep increasing.
 
Statistics have it that, worldwide, more than millions patients are waiting for kidney transplants,
but only a few thousands will receive transplants because of shortage of suitable organ donors.
 
Patients usually felt surprised when they are diagnosed of Kidney Failure.
Experts have found the explanation from your daily life habits.
Here are the top habits which lead to your kidney failure:
 
1. Not emptying your bladder early:
 
Maintaining a full bladder for a long time is a quick way of causing bladder damage.
That the urine stays in the bladder for a long time can cause the bacteria breeding in urine to multiply quickly.
Once the urine refluxes back to ureter and kidneys, the bacteria can result in kidney infections,
then urinary tract infection, and then nephritis, even Uraemia.
So, no matter how busy you are, remember to drink a lot of water and urinate regularly.
Once you form the habit of holding back urine, it will ultimately damage your kidneys.
 
2. Not drinking enough water: 
 
 
The main functions of the kidneys are to regulate erythrocyte balances and eliminate metabolic wastes in urine.
If we do not drink enough water, the blood will be concentrated and the blood flow to the kidney will not be adequate,
thus the function of eliminating toxins in from blood will be impaired.
 
3. Taking too much salt:
 
 
95% sodium we consume through food is metabolized by the kidneys.
Exceeding the salt intake will make the kidneys work harder to excrete the excess salt and can lead to decreased kidney function.
This excess sodium will cause water retention, causing oedema.
Oedema usually elevates blood pressure and increases the risk of developing kidney disease.
The daily salt intake should be controlled within 6g per day.
 
4. Not treating common infections quickly and properly: 
 
 
Common infections, such as pharyngitis, tonsillitis, common cold etc., usually trigger or aggravates kidney damage.
They do this by causing an acute attack of acute glomerulonephritis or chronic nephritis.
So, you will see that people who get kidney disease for the first time or
whose illness condition becomes worse usually present in hospitals with a history of cold or sore throat.
If after having cold, symptoms like blood in urine, swelling, headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, poor appetite appear,
you should consult your doctor immediately, to assess your kidney functions, and start treatment if compromised.
 
5. Eating too much meat:
 
 
 
Eating too much meat and protein can increase the metabolic load of the kidney.
For those suffering from proteinuria, meat consumption too may aggravate protein leakage, worsening renal pathological lesion.
 
It is suggested that protein intake should be 0.8g/kg per day.
This means that a person with 50 kg should consume 40g of protein per day. Meat consumption per day should be limited within 300g.
 
6. Not eating enough:
 
 
This is equally as dangerous as eating too much,
both of them will lead damages to your digestive organs where is full of mucosal tissues.
Mucosal tissues relates closely to your immune system.
This is why many kidney failure patients are diagnosed with "autoimmune kidney damages".
 
7. Painkiller abuse:
 
 
The use of analgesics for a prolonged duration may reduce the flow blood and greatly affect kidney function.
In addition, patients with analgesic-induced renal failure are more likely to suffer from bladder cancer.
 
Use analgesics only when it's absolutely necessary, learn to rest instead of taking to the bottles.
If you have been on pain killers for a long term, it's about time you had a test to access you renal function done.
 
8. Missing your drugs:
 
 
Hypertension and diabetes have been shown to precipitate or accelerate kidney damage,
so if you are diagnosed as having any of these diseases don't live your life in denial, USE YOUR DRUGS.
 
This will ultimately help control your condition while also helping to preserve your kidneys.
 
9. Drinking alcohol:
 
Drinking alcohol may cause the deposition of uric acid in renal tubules, causing tubular obstruction and increasing risks of kidney failure.
 
10. Not resting enough:
 
In our society, hypertension as a severe threat to life is largely due to stress.
A common symptom of stress is insomnia.
Blood pressure may increase by an average of 2-5mg/Hg because of insomnia.
Chronically elevated blood pressure can cause damage to kidney capillaries giving rise to kidney problems.
Thus, we need to develop a good attitude to life and strike a good balance between work and rest to protect your kidneys and live a healthy life.
 
At the early stage of kidney diseases, there are usually no the special symptoms,
so lots of patients are not diagnosed until the acute attack appears or the illness condition develops into the late stage.
So you should endeavour to do kidney function test from time to time to assess how healthy your kidneys are.
 
Never ignore the soreness of waist, swelling of the feet, changes in urine colour or volume, increase in night urination, pallor, high blood pressure and other such symptoms.
 
Once found, you should go and see your doctor immediately.
