Small Actions Can Change Your Life

Everybody has different definition of happiness. What is your definition of happiness? How do you think you can achieve your happiness? Do you think you can win lotto and become millionaire? Do you hope to be successful in business and make money? Do you dream of inheriting something big from your relatives?

You can be happy being with your family over the weekend in your busy schedule. You feel happiness watching your kids playing around in your yard. When your girlfriend smiles at you, you will be happy.

It was last month when I happened to pick up this Japanese book for self-improvement oriented. The title of the book is "50 Small Actions to Change Your Life". The book is a list of 50 small actions which author recommends taking. Each item has explanation of the author. Many of them are small good action to take.

The most interesting was the reason why the author wrote this book. According to the author, there are more powerful thing, which can change your life to the better direction than your talent, or education, or big sum of donation to your church, or any organization you belong to. He says the most powerful series of action to change your life is small daily base actions, accumulations, and continuation of them.

Here are some small actions you can take:

- Greet to someone you have never greet before. You should have 1 new person to greet in 1 new day.
- Take steps instead of elevator. You may meet someone you did not expect to meet.
- Stop asking your friend if you are special individual. Special person tends to believe he is ordinary person, not extraordinary.

The book consisted of 50 interesting items as above. All of his listings were interesting and I finished reading in a day. Also I cannot agree more to the author that if we continue to take good actions, at least one at a day, every day. It will change our life to the better way.

This book reminded me one story, which I heard long time ago. I hoped to share it here.

One high school drop out could finally find his job in a bank branch in a city of Japan. As a newcomer in the bank, his first morning work was to clean the entrance of the bank branch office. One morning, he found that front of neighbor house was also messy as well in the morning. Since it did not take him much additional work, he started to clean front of their neighbor house, too. One day, a old woman came out of the home, asked him to come into her home and have a cup of tea.

As this old woman asked, he walked into her home, where he met the her grand doubter, who was beautify, and the old woman asked him to marry her grand doubter and hair her business. This boy could hair very profitable business of Jewelry Trading and married beautiful wife.
