4 Reasons Why There’s A Point To Everything We Do

4 Reasons Why There’s A Point To Everything We Do

You like to knit, read, hike, swim, and/or motorbike. You spend the majority of your days working hard, working out, and/or working in your garden. You play video games for hours, watch Netflix for days, and/or vacation for weeks.

I often used to find myself pondering about life, and the meaning of it. Daily, I would question the point of anything I needed to do, or should be doing. I was sinking deeper into depression; I just didn’t know it at the time. Why was I so unhappy? Why did I see no point to anything?

Because of depression, I’ve come to a conclusion: there are four reasons why there’s a point to everything we do. These four reasons make up our hobbies, our interests, and the activities in which we enjoy, each and every day. If we lose these four reasons, we lose our identity. No amount of money, no amount of attention or affection, and no amount of security, can help us see a point without them. Without them, we feel as if we were only born to eat, sleep, pay bills, and repeat the process.

Once we begin to welcome these simple yet effective reasons into our lives, we will always be able to see a point in everything we do!

Reason #1: Purpose

Without purpose it’s hard to find a point to anything. Purpose drives us. It pushes us. It challenges us to be as true to ourselves as humanly possible. Purpose is personal. For some, purpose means building a family. To others, it means building an entrepreneurial empire.

To find purpose, is to find yourself. Who are you? What are you about? Once you can answer these questions and understand your personal purpose, your life mission will be mapped out right in front of you. Just remember to enjoy the journey along the way!

Reason #2: Achievement

Achievements release our fear of failure. They also help build our will to challenge ourselves. To live without the will to achieve, is to live in fear.

What’s holding you back from an achievement? Achievements are what make you proud to be who you are, and where you are going. So whether you win a board game with friends, wake up on time, fall in love with your partner more each day, or even just sweep the floor, you can always find achievements in your everyday life. If you struggle to find your daily achievements, make a list of goals that you wish to achieve and go out and achieve them today, tomorrow, and for the rest of your life!

Reason #3: Perspective

Perspective can set the mood to any situation. Look at how some people will complain about the rain, while others will go out and dance in it.

What would you rather do, dance or complain? Perspective depends on attitude. Do you have a positive attitude, or a negative attitude? Negative perspective draws negative attention, so if you tend to think the worse of everything, you might be attracting the worse in everything you do. If you’re up for the challenge, today is your day to make a change in your perspective!

Reason #4: Happiness

If you look around the world, happiness is relatively flexible. Some people can be happy with very little, while others feel depleted when they can’t have it all. But why? They say happiness is a choice, but to me, happiness is not a choice. Instead, happiness comes naturally once you begin living life for yourself.

Are you happy today? If not… what are you going to do to change that? What does happiness mean to you?

Conclusion

If you feel as if you are struggling to find your identity, based on what the world or society thinks is right for you, I challenge you to challenge yourself by exploring these four avenues. You never know what’s on the other side of fear. There’s always a point to everything you do. Remember your purpose, achievement, perspective, and happiness, and you’ll get there!

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
