Searching for the Meaning of Life!
Are you looking for the meaning of life?
You work all day long, doing the right thing, caring for others, never breaking the law and generally being a pretty decent person.
At the same time everything seems to go wrong, relationships just don't go the way you had planned, the boss has a nasty streak, petrol prices go up, you have an accident, the landlord tells you he wants you to move for no real good reason, yes, it goes on & on!
How do you turn things around?
I'm sorry but I don't have the answer too what is the meaning of life and why there a times when nothing seems to go right for you, however, I do believe that what we think directs our focus to achieving our thoughts, so negative thought, negative result, positive thought, positive result.
This being the case, how do we then train our minds to think positive, when all around us appears to be a series of negative events going on in our life?
To help with my own thinking, I take inspiration from those that I admire and find out more about the challenges that they have faced in their lives and how they overcame challenges and setbacks and went onto succeed.
Perhaps the answer for you lies in what has gone before us and you are meant to learn from history and those who survived against great odds, there are many examples to be found in any library or bookstore, story after story of those who have survived major challenges in their own life.
Is there a story out there for you that will give more meaning to your life and help you to overcome the obstacles facing you?
Take time out and search the shelves in the autobiography section and see if there's a book about someone you admire and then read their story.
I'm sure in that book, you'll find answers and clues on how you can improve your thinking and life, just start reading and when the answers jump off the page, as if they were written just for you, take action and start living a better life.

What Legacy Are We Leaving Our Children?
Children can seem exhausting, annoying, wonderful, loud and funny all at the same time.
