Self Confidence vs Ego‏

There is a thin line dividing confidence and ego. Most of the time we get confused and fail to decide whether we are on the right track or our ego is dominating in the guise of confidence. When ego dominates every success turns into failure. One has to be very careful about it. How to distinguish between confidence and ego?

    A man of confidence says that he can do the work and others can also do it; where as a man of ego says that he alone can do it and nobody else can.

    A man of confidence always try to encourage and help others in building their confidence, whereas a man of ego tries to curb and discourage others when they try to come up in life.

A man of confidence always attracts people. Even the weak feel confident and elevated in his company. Where as an egoistic person creates repulsion in the minds of people who try to avoid him because of his boastful nature.

    A man of confidence appreciates the success of others and shares happiness with them. Whereas a man of ego discourages and humiliates others and feels jealous of the success of others.

    There is a joy in working with people of confidence because they are always cheerful and can mix with everybody. In the presence of egoistic people even the man of confidence feel an inferiority complex. They feel nervous to work them.

    A man of confidence always commands love and respect whereas a man of ego always demands and expects love and respect.

    Confident people are always successful in every field of life because they can conquer the hearts of all by putting their faith and confidence in others and receive all help and cooperation from colleagues and friends. A man of ego always suffers setbacks and failures loosing men and power because of his arrogant approach which adds only to his worries and tensions.

    In one word a man of self confidence puts his faith in the inner most Divine self, the source of all power and energy and also feels presence of Divine in everyone while dealing with them whereas the ego centric person puts his faith only in his mental and intellectual abilities and skills, forgetting the Divine, which operates through mind and intellect out of ignorance. He applies the same standards while dealing with others. He is only aware of the weaknesses and drawbacks and never realises that the perfect Divine is hidden behind these superficial appearances, which can be awakened by constant training and positive approach.

10 Tips To Control High Blood Pressure

1. Make sure your blood pressure is under 140/90 mm Hg. If your systolic pressure (the top number) is over 140, ask your doctor what you can do to lower it.
2. Take your high blood pressure medicine, if prescribed, every day. If you have questions, talk to your doctor.
3. Aim for a healthy weight. If you are overweight or obese, carrying this extra weight increases your risk of high blood pressure. One way to determine if you need to lose weight is to find out your body mass index or BMI. If your BMI is above the healthy range (i.e., 25 or greater), or if your waist measurement is greater than 35 inches (women) or 40 inches (men) you probably have excess abdominal weight and you may benefit from weight loss especially if you have other risk factors. Talk to your doctor to see if you are at increased risk for high blood pressure and need to lose weight.
4. Increase your physical activity. Do at least 30 minutes of moderate activity, such as walking, most days of the week. You can do 30 minutes in three 10-minute segments.
5. Choose foods low in salt and sodium. Most Americans should consume no more than 2.4 grams (2,400 milligrams) of sodium a day. That equals 6 grams, about one teaspoon of table salt a day. For someone with high blood pressure, the doctor may advise less.
6. Read nutrition labels. Almost all packaged foods contain sodium. Every time you prepare or eat a packaged food, know how much sodium is in one serving.
7. Keep a sodium diary. You may be surprised at how much sodium you consume each day and the diary will help you decide which foods to decrease or eliminate.
8. Use spices and herbs instead of salt to season the food you prepare at home.
9. Eat more fruits, vegetables, grains, and low-fat dairy foods.
10. If you consume alcohol at all, consume moderate amount or restrict…

4. DIET:
After consuming 3 of the 5 natures elements (Ether, Water, Air, Earth & Fire) get to the natures produce.
Vegetables & fruits.
The Lord has provided plenty of choice. No need to be a Vegan, but the amount of cleansing the vegetables and fruit does to the system is amazing!
The enzymes thus produced protect every cell in the body. Proteins are present in lentils and yogurt too.
Too much meat takes away 70% of the energy to digest it. So be moderate. We are basically herbivores and not carnivorous – by nature.
5. EXERCISE:
How can anything be consumed without the corresponding arrangement to digest the same? The body must move. Walking can be a good form of exercise!
But stretching the body is very essential. Starting from bed , when waking up and then being physically vibrant through the day.
Household work is NOT an exercise, it’s a chore!
Exercise in a proper state of mind and not under stress or duress. Relaxation is the reason for exercising a healthy state of mind. Exercise alone and not rushing!
6. REST:
Last but not the least the 6th doctor is REST!
None of the above is possible without enough sleep, relaxation and rest from meetings a deadline!
Rest is the most important factor which gives impetus to all other 5!
So do not neglect it. Resting with beautiful, positive  and creative thoughts is of course always recommended.
If you have negative thoughts, keep slogging, so you do not have the time to nurture them.
When resting have all the positive thoughts, nourishing thoughts, the foremost being Thanksgiving to the Lord, followed by love
and compassion towards all the relationships you encounter – choicelessness  in love.
