Every day is a brand new beginning. We get a chance to thank the forces around us for our lives. We get a chance to express our gratitude for being alive and for the livelihood. There are many people who are handicapped, or have other issues, and cannot enjoy the world the way we do. We must be thankful for the experiences and also for the fact that we are capable of experiencing the beautiful thing called ‘The Universe’. We shouldn’t be sad and get hung up on the things that we don’t have. We should always remember that there are people who don’t even enjoy what we are experiencing. We should be very humble in life.
2. Set your intentions for the day
The world is a very confusing place. There are many choices that you will have and each choice has a different repercussion of its own. One wrong choice can send you back to the starting line. All the hard work that you have put in will go in vain. So, before getting out of bed, if one can set their goals for the day then life becomes a little easier for that person. Our thoughts and actions define who we really are. Our thoughts help us shape the person we want to become in the future. We should treat our thoughts like spells of magic and use it like wizards in our daily lives.
3. Take five long deep breaths in and out
Life is hectic and makes even the strongest person wet their beds. Whenever we get ready to start the day, we have no clue what surprises are out there waiting for us.

No one is perfect and everyone has their own flaws. We should not be so hard on ourselves. Failure is the stepping stone to success. Every successful man has met with failure at some point in their lives. Some have struggled a lot and some have struggled less but the struggle is constant in everyone’s lives. We must let go of the past and try to move on. We would benefit a lot if we forgive ourselves.
