The 10 Ancient Rituals for Radiant Living

Radiant Living

The following is an excerpt from The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin S. Sharma

—– —– —–

#1 – The Ritual of Solitude – This involves nothing more than ensuring that your daily schedule includes a mandatory period of peace.  It can last as little as fifteen minutes or as much as fifty, wherein you explore the healing power of silence and come to know who you really are.  Solitude and quiet connects you to your creative source and releases the limitless intelligence of the Universe.

You see, the mind is like a lake.  In our chaotic world, most people’s minds are not still.  We are full of inner turbulence.  However, by simply taking the time to be still and quiet every day, the lake of the mind becomes as smooth as a plate of glass.  This inner quietness brings with it a wealth of benefits including a deep sense of well-being, inner peace and boundless energy.  You will even sleep better and enjoy a renewed feeling of balance in your day-to-day activities.

“You must be ruthless with your time.  Learn to say no.  Having the courage to say no to the little things in life will give you the power to say yes to the big things.  Shut the door to your office when you need a few hours to work on that big case.  Don’t pick up the phone every time it rings.  It is there for your convenience, not the convenience of others.  Ironically, people will respect you more when they see that you are a person who values his time.  They will realize that your time is precious and they will value it.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“Busy, productive people are highly efficient with their time – they must be in order to survive.  Being an excellent time manager doesn’t mean that you must become a workaholic.  On the contrary, time mastery allows you more time to do the things you love to do, the things that are truly meaningful to you.  Time mastery leads to life mastery.  Guard time well.  Remember, it’s a non-renewable resource.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“Small victories lead to large victories.  You must build on the small to achieve the great.  By following through on a resolution as simple as getting up earlier every day, you will feel the pleasure and gratification that achievement brings.  You have set a goal and you have realized it.  This feels good.  The trick is to keep setting the mark higher and raising your standards continuously.  This will then release that magical quality of momentum that will motivate you to keep exploring your infinite potential.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“Most people I have spoken to have no idea that they have the power to control every single thought they think every second of every minute of every day.  They believe that thoughts just happen and have never realized that if you don’t take the time to start controlling your thoughts, they will control you.  When you start to focus on good thoughts only, and refuse to think the bad ones through sheer will-power, I promise you they will shrivel up very quickly.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“Failure is not having the courage to try, nothing more and nothing less.  The only thing standing between most people and their dreams is the fear of failure.  Yet failure is essential to success in any endeavor.  Failure tests us and allows us to grow.  It offers us lessons and guides us along the path of enlightenment.  The teachers of the East say that every arrow that hits the bull’s eye is the result of one hundred misses.  It is a fundamental Law of Nature to profit through loss.  Never fear failure.  Failure is your friend.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
