Harmony is deeply connected with the balance of your mind, body and soul.

As long as we can remember, we’ve always been striving for the golden mean – that state, in which we become conscious of every detail of our inner and outer world, we accept things as they are, and just then are we able to embrace the new ones.

I’m not talking about perfection here. It is a different thing – reaching excellence in everything we do and seeking for the ideal.

From a philosophical point of view, though, those who are perfect are different from everyone else, which makes them imperfect.
A lot of famous people in the history have dedicated their lives to a desperate searching of that utopia, but after failing to reach it, and finally realizing how mortal and powerless they are in the face of faith, they have lost their minds.

Harmony is completely another thing.

It’s happiness, completeness, fulfillment, satisfaction, acceptance, peace and awareness.

There are a few steps we have to take in order to be in harmony with ourselves.
Most of these things we are completely familiar with, and, yet, somehow we tend to avoid them. Maybe we are afraid to become the best versions of ourselves and to reach success.

Well, fear is our worst enemy and with it, we will always stay at the same level.
So overcome it, and start your journey to success by attaining harmony.

Here is what you need to do (give your mind time to get used to every change you make and be patient) :

 Define where you are now

What have you achieved? What qualities do you have? What have you learned?

 Define where you want to get and who you want to become

Now answer the same questions from the step above, but for the future. Set your goals and start doing something to achieve them right away.

 Accept everything you are, have and have done

Summarize everything you have – family, friends, home, education, qualities, achievements,  possibilities, etc. – and appreciate it.

 Learn to listen to your mind

It has a lot to tell you, but this can happen only if you listen to it, ask questions and respect it.

 Meditate

Meditation is the way to achieve the previous step.

There are various techniques and methods but they all include body and mind relaxation, concentrating on your own thought and listening to your consciousness.

If you do it to clear your mind, then after a few sessions and a lot of patience and focus, amazing things can happen.

 Respect your desires and needs

 Give in order to get and satisfaction will come

 Be grateful

Show the people in your life how much they mean to you.

 Do things for yourself

 Take full responsibility for everything you’ve done

This is one of the most important qualities you need to acquire. Steve Kamb from Nerd Fitness said it best in his post.

 Move on

After accepting all your negative qualities and imperfections, you can now consciously start improving them one by one.
You will have to let some things go and welcome new ones in your live.

 Learn to love your body and then make it better

 Have some quiet time for yourself

Last but not least, you need to make time like that.

A lot of people I know are afraid to be left alone in a room even for a few minutes. That means they are so insecure and afraid, that every fear and thought they’ve been avoiding will suddenly pop up in their mind.

It’s easier for them to indulge in the illusion of their comfort zone, which in this case is their social life. That is why they spend their free time communicating with others, even though sometimes it is just random people with whom they have nothing in common.

It is a sad picture as they are ruining their potential by surrounding themselves with unimportant acquaintances (that means that you cannot learn something from them), staying in cafes and discussing other people and events just to kill some time.

What they have to do is take some time for themselves, be alone, start getting to know themselves and realize that others aren’t the people they can truly depend on.

Have you already taken some of these steps ?
Which one do you consider most important?
