Fortune is in one's own hands.

Message for the day

Expression: To have fortune in one's own hands doesn't mean to have it in the lines of one's hands. It means to have the ability to make the best use of all the resources available. When they are put to the best use, they naturally increase. Through actions one can draw the line of fortune as long as desired.

Experience: When I am able to create an elevated fortune for myself, I am able to become an inspiration for others too to create an elevated fortune for themselves.

Understanding Stress

Stress is one of the biggest diseases of the 21st century. Originally the word 'stress' was only used for the pressure, or tension, exerted on a machine: engineers build in a calculation for stress to ensure that the machine functions correctly. Gradually, however, the term has become more and more popular to describe the state of human beings.

When we try to describe stress, a whole chain of words such as 'push', 'pull', 'pressure', 'more', or 'deadlines' comes to mind. To have to produce, to do more and more and to be better and better at it, creates a lot of tension, which comes from the fear of not being able to achieve the result on time. The materialistic values of getting, having, accumulating and outdoing others in the form of ambition, competition and position produce a lot of stress.

When we are stressed, we are certainly overloaded. We think and speak too much and we overreact, all of which affect both body and mind negatively. The worst thing is that this becomes a habit, which is often uncontrolled, and so the simple solution of stopping and relaxing, meditating is not considered as a solution. Some even regard it as a useless waste of time.
