Free Amazon Kindle Self-Help eBook - You Can Improve Your Life and Become Happier - An Action Plan for Busy People

Have you ever wondered why some people are happy even though the circumstances of their lives are difficult while other people are unhappy despite having many good things in their lives?

The answer is that happiness doesn't depend on external factors like money, relationships or successful careers.

Happiness is within the reach of everyone. However, you don't automatically become happier - you have to work at it.

If you've always wanted to improve your life and become happier, now is the time!

In the Amazon Kindle eBook, You Can Improve Your Life and Become Happier, you'll find a six-week action plan that will help you to improve many aspects of your life. Each task takes just 15 minutes or less so it's easy to fit into your life, even if you are very busy with work, family responsibilities, commuting and so on.

The action plan is suitable for everyone, regardless of their age, gender and circumstances.

The eBook is free for one day only on Sunday, 17th April! You can download it on Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk.

I would very much appreciate it if you could let me know what you think of the book by writing a review on Amazon and/or leaving a comment on this blog. Thank you!

What's the Point?

This is a question we've all asked ourselves. What's the point of getting up? What's the point of trying? What's the point of living? and so on...

Although it's a common question, it's also a very destructive one. It implies that there is no point in trying, living, etc, and therefore we should give up. This is very detrimental to our mental health and makes it easy to sink into a depression when we can't be bothered doing anything.

The answer to the question is that there is always a point...You are alive, you have something to give to others, you can create your own fulfilling life.

When such negative questions come into your mind, replace them with positive words, such as:
  • I will try...
  • I will help...
  • I will take one small step forward...
This kind of motivating self-talk will help you to move forward. No matter how small the step, it is important to move forward if you want to improve your life every day.

Thoughts During a Candle Meditation

Whilst doing a candle meditation the other day, I looked at the flame and saw it flickering. It made me think of how we waver when life throws difficulties at us.

However, although the flame moved around a lot, it did not go out. This reminded me that, although we can be thrown around a lot by the challenges we have, they do not extinguish us. We remain alive during those times of difficulty.

After a while, the flame stopped flickering and burned tall without moving. To me, this showed that, once we get through the difficult times, we stand tall and strong again. In actual fact, we're stronger than we were before because we've learned a lot during those times.

The flame of the candle is like the human spirit. It can sometimes be blown about by external events but it is not extinguished by them and ultimately it shows how strong and resilient it is.
