Happy Vishu & Happy New Year to all & feels great that it has fallen on a Thursday :) Wish I could write this on 1st January. Vishu marks the beginning of a new year celebrated in Kerala, India. It is considered a festival of light and fireworks and decorating lights and bursting of firecrackers (Vishupadakkam) is part of the celebration. Other elements of Vishu include buying of new clothes (Puthukodi) for the occasion, the tradition of giving money called Vishukkaineetam and the Vishu feast or Sadya.
Most of us eagerly wait for this day, however have your ever thought WHY? Is it because of the firecrackers, new clothes or the feast? Or is that we are looking for something new?
Is this day really different from other days of your life or is it just like a weekend!!! If we keep doing the same things all year and repeat it the following year, is it really a New Year for you? Think About it!! Is there any use of wearing new dresses, if we still remain the same? Why do you call it a New Year when you have plans to do the same things that you did last year. A new year is only New, if do something new or it’s just an another year and nothing new about it.
One of the best things that we normally do is fixing a New Year Resolution and we get all excited about it, but how many of us really stick to this resolution and make it really a NEW YEAR? Research has shown that about half of all adults make New Year’s resolutions. However, fewer than 10% manage to keep them for more than a few months. Why is that?
I understand it was very difficult to keep a resolution but there is a Secret!!!! Following this secret will automatically make you to create and keep other resolutions and changes that is required in your life which will make you a New person. The next thing which I am going to tell you, might sound odd or crazy but seriously, this secret really works and it’s going to turn around your life. But First you have to believe and try it for sometime!!!! Just follow this for the couple of months and see how your life is going to change.
Fix a time between 4:30 - 6:00 am, wake up during that fixed time and pray for half hour. That all!!! Is it difficult? This would bring so much positivity into your life which is beyond your expectation.
It might sound crazy, but look at the most successful people around the world. They are not different from you, the only difference is that they do somethings differently. Out of which waking-up and praying plays a major role in their lives. Everyone have 24 hours & 365 days in a year, not even a second more or less. So what makes the successful people different?? Answer is simple!! It’s how they utilise their time, which makes them different. Is your time utilised in a positive way or a negative way??
So are you ready to get up and pray? This is the Secret to have a Happy New Year.
