It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor, healthy or sick, you only have 24 hours a day – try to use it wisely.

.

Time is the most precious value we have. Time is the greatest equalizer of human beings. If we don’t treat time with respect then we will only have to lose. It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor, healthy or sick, you only have 24 hours a day either way, and you should try to use it wisely.

Most of the times, we waste our time and energy worrying and thinking about things like how to win more money and how to leave a better life. Well, when we do this we usually forget about the most important think – the time to live our life in. A wise man will always tell you: “You can always make more money, but you can never buy more time”.

How many times are we aware of the ways we invest our time? And the word “investment” is the most accurate because the way we choose to spend our time is a true investment in ourselves and our own lives. And you will never find the true value of time in the way people around you act and talk.

People usually spend time for hours in front of the TV, or they spent a lot of time browsing the net with no purpose whatsoever. Some of us even try to steal more time with the cost of many healthy sleep hours. If you wake up earlier in the morning just to smoke a few cigarettes and to fill your self up with coffee so you won’t feel sleepy it doesn’t mean you won quality time. Also, inefficient work or spending more hours at work that you have to is equal to borrowing your life to someone else.

Everyone always says things like: “ I’m just counting the hours to go home” or “I wish it were Friday” on a Monday and so on. These are just signs that those persons usually waste their time. If you organize our time efficiently and if you choose to do only activities that motivate us somehow, then we will find ourselves able to work everyday without feeling tired or sleepy.

At any moment that you just let time pass by you think about what Romans said: ”Carpe Diem” – it has a great meaning for our everyday life, it means “Live the day” or better said “Organize your day”. Make more time to analyze the way you invest or waste your time. And never forget that you can’t tell anything about tomorrow so “Carpe Diem!”

Give others the benefit of doubt. Allow people to make mistakes and admit to them.

 

.

Funk & Wagnalls Standard Desk Dictionary – definition of the word, trust as (trust) n. A confidence in the reliability of persons or things without careful investigation.

Trust is something that we strive for in our relationships with people and in certain things. Trust gives us a feeling of comfort and security when we express feelings and concerns about our situations. It starts out as a child; we know nothing other than to trust our parents or guardians to keep us happy, fed, cuddled and safe from the “BoogeyMan.”

While growing up, we never consider the thought of losing trust in our friends and family members as they are the ones’ who we have spent many hours of building fond memories; ones that will carry us into our adult years, giving us so much to share with our children.

Being trustworthy is a positive characteristic that should be worn as a badge of honor. It is good to know that you can be trusted. It is good to know that you can trust another.

We live our lives giving and accepting trustworthy advice from not only our friends and family but from other people such as our doctors, bankers, educators and even our repairmen hoping for the most honest opinion and correct information regarding our circumstances and well being.

It is also something that truly has to start from within; know that you can be a good friend or advice giver to someone who is in need. Give unconditionally, your time and effort without it being confused with naivety.

Speak less of what you may not know about. Be a good listener.

When you are involved in a situation that may be good, bad or indifferent, be aware of what you say and to whom you say it to. Your words can be misconstrued and turned into a realm of lies and deceit.

But when that level of trust is cut down by a person or state of affairs, we are then given a reason to lower our expectations, cause doubt, build walls and blur our vision of the things that really matter. It has been said that there is a reason for everything. And a few of the reasons that someone will do something to another is because of hidden resentment, false pride, fear, greed, selfishness and lack of confidence in that person, situation or themselves.

Give others the benefit of doubt.

Allow people to make mistakes and admit to them. It is the one who does not admit to their poor actions and who falsely accuse others of the things they know they have done, that need to be condemned. And for that they can not be trusted.

There is always more than one side to a story and out of the two there is definitely one that is the truth.

There are times that a person or situation may cause you to lose trust if so, before it destroys a good thing, hear what has to be said, listen with your heart and mind and if you are involved in any way, accept your position without conviction. Be accountable for your actions. Never deny your involvement. Say what you need to say. Getting things out in the open, will hopefully keep the right doors open for healthy relations with others. It is a matter of trust.

Have faith that all will be reconciled. Move on and if not, one thing is for sure, as we live our lives and deal with people and circumstances there are things that are going to happen that may cause us hardship and despair, work it out for the better or worse. It truly can or may not be as bad as it seems, if so try to accept that “Pobodys’ Nerfect” (Nobodys’ Perfect, even so) remember that as we continue to develop relationships with people, trust your personal thoughts, words and decisions. No one person has control over the responsibilities of another.

Trust, it is the one thing that develops over time but takes a minute to destroy.

Pay it forward.

Whatever circumstances we have in life, we are still the one controlling its outcome.

.

 

There are times in our life, that we may feel we are left alone and being pushed hard by whatever circumstances in life. For some, they use this moment to make them stronger, wiser and better person. But for some, they didn’t fight back. They just accept the reality and concede on the great defeat. These are the people who will not be successful in life. Success is a series of failures that we need to overcome every time and emerged victorious in the end.

There are rich people and there are poor people. Some are born healthy, some are born with defects. Some are lucky, some are so unlucky. This is life, and we cannot change it. All we can do is accept the fact that life is unfair, and move on. No one can ever guarantee for a fair result in life. Instead of complaining, try to use this opportunity to improve yourself and make use of the hardship and difficulties to propel you to achieve greater purpose in life. We may be born poor, but we all have the opportunities to be successful and become rich in life.

Helen Keller was blind and deaf, and yet she emerged as one of the best author in our history. Her life didn’t stop when she loses her senses, but instead, it motivates her to do things that normal people can do and she did best.

Whitney Houston was once a famous singer of our time. People around the world adore her and taught that she has everything and very successful in life. And yet, where she is now? After her fame, she became addicted to drugs and involved in several illegal activities. She is just another example of a person whom we thought are successful.

I grew up without my parents to guide me on my side. Trials, difficulties and problems are my constant companion before. And yet, I fought back and use these misfortunes to become what I am today. Same thing happen to my friend. Now he was addicted to illegal drugs and a drop out from school. Lots of people have the same fate, because they accept defeat early in life. They are just contented in saying that life is unfair, and circumstance makes them what they are today.

Whatever circumstances we have in life, we are still the one controlling its outcome. It is still up to us to lead our life to where we want us to be. Blaming the circumstances and use it to justify our present condition will not help. It will only hinder us to move forward and continue to live our life. Trials and difficulties will always be there to set us off course, but we can handle it if we really have the right attitude in life.

So instead of complaining about life being unfair, move on and make the use out of it.

The Utopia Trap is the belief that you must create better conditions in society before you can be free.

The Utopia Trap

 

The Utopia Trap is the belief that you must create better conditions in society before you can be free

 

It’s a very basic, very understandable belief. It’s easy to see that other people are arranging things incorrectly — passing the wrong laws, misinterpreting things, even maliciously arranging things to the detriment of others. You can see poverty, repression, prejudice, and other conditions that stifle creativity and happiness.

 

It’s easy to feel that society needs an overhaul (major or minor) before you’ll be able to live freely. As a result, you can devote a great deal of effort to attempts to make others understand what you see, to the passing of laws, to a quest for a better society.

 

While you’re doing this, you obviously give up a great deal of time and other resources that could have been used to enjoy life. But it’s assumed that once the proper overhaul of society is completed, you’ll be able to live more freely.

 

There are two basic reasons why I don’t get involved in the quest to change society: (1) because it’s an indirect alternative, it’s a much harder, more permanent job than most people realize; and (2) it isn’t necessary. An individual doesn’t need to live in a free society in order to free himself — and when he tries to change the world, he’s in for a lot more trouble than he may have bargained for.

Change comes into being when there is no fear.

.

If you can really understand this, then the seed of that radical revolution has already been planted. Change comes into being when there is no fear, when there is neither the experiencer nor the experience; it is only then that there is the revolution which is beyond time. But that cannot be as long as I am trying to change the ‘I’, as long as I am trying to change what is into something else. I am the result of all the social and the spiritual compulsions, persuasions, and all the conditioning based on acquisitiveness – my thinking is based on that. To be free from that conditioning, from that acquisitiveness, I say to myself, ‘I must not be acquisitive; I must practice nonacquisitiveness.’ But such action is still within the field of time, it is still the activity of the mind. Just see that. Don’t say, ‘How am I to get to that state when I am nonacquisitive?’ That is not important. It is not important to be nonacquisitive; what is important is to understand that the mind which is trying to get away from one state to another is still functioning within the field of time, and therefore there is no revolution, there is no change. If you can really understand this, then the seed of that radical revolution has already been planted and that will operate: you have not a thing to do.

Make it easy for people to be with you and deal with you.

WORDS OF WISDOM FOR TODAY

 .

I WILL PAY MORE FOR THE ABILITY TO DEAL WITH PEOPLE THAN FOR ANY OTHER ABILITY UNDER THE SUN

John D. Rockefeller

 .

You can boast with several university degrees, have enough certificates to paper a wall and still make very little progress in your career or life in general. Your path through life will be difficult and cumbersome if you are unable to successfully master the art in dealing with people.

I walked out of a chemist a few weeks ago because a rude and obnoxious clown with very limited people skills tried to make me and a few other customers feel like idiots. His manager when I spoke to him later tried to justify what happened by explaining that this person have a very “dry type of humour” and that we possibly misread his intentions. I love people with a dry sense of humour, but I resent it when a person goes into the “parent – child” mode when he or she speak to me.

This man lacked a major tool when it comes to the ability to deal with people. He lacked the ability to listen. He completed your sentences for you and jumped to conclusions before you even got into your stride telling him what your needs are. I noticed that his desk was empty the next time I visited the chemist. I think he possibly took up a job with some second rate circus.

Everybody wants to be accepted, respected and appreciated. You will have a turbulent ride in life if you fail to grasp this important fact of life. I believe that when you use the right approach you are often allowed to enter the more private space in a person’s mind. Our minds are usually a place that is usually only reserved for a small number of friends and family. If ignore this important fact, you will remain an outsider and never achieve your desired objectives. People will not do business with you if you lack people skills. The last thing we need is to wrestle and stumble our way through a person’s sticky personality.

You can make major problems go away or double your income by simple sharpening up on your people skills. I want to give you a very valuable tip today. Treat people the same way you would like them to treat you. This simple lesson is worth its weight in gold. When you start treating people the way you expect them to treat you, you will be astounded how most of them will become more compassionate and flexible. Try to be as fair as possible when you deal with people. You will be richly rewarded if you develop a reputation that you are a fair person in everything you do. Make it easy for people to be with you and deal with you. The worst thing that you can ever do is to attempt to always win arguments and show people the error of their ways.

Words are like bullets.

.

insomnia

.

POWER TOOL: Recall this image the next time you want to say something rude or sarcastic to anyone. Words are like bullets and can never be retracted once they leave your lips. Words written or expressed are recorded in the mind of the receiver. Words are packed with a dose of emotions that either build or contaminate. Once you infected the mind of your lover, mother, child or even a stranger with your pain producing judgements you plant a virus in their heads. These viruses then begin to eat away their self-image and self-esteem. Notice how most of your messages start with “me” or “I”. You can change your life overnight when you become “you” focused. Take “me” and “my” out of the way for a while and focus on the needs and desire of those that you interact with. You will suddenly read the story of the person that you interact with in their eyes. You will avoid “attack” mode and go into “compassion” mode. Look around you my friend an notice that you know little about the “story” of those that you interact with. This ignorance includes friends and even family members. Stop being “me” focused for a while and listen your way into compassion and love. Words of judgement come from the head while words of love, compassion, understanding and care in turn come from the heart.
