Why do some people look for the worst or negative in others or in situations? Why do people assume you are judging them? Why are people so quick to point out their opinions and interrupt you when you are talking? Or express such harsh points of view that are not even close to the truth instead of listening and assuming the worst. Why are some so quick to judge instead of being open and listen to the other person to explain the situation? Why don’t people talk to each other instead of behind the other persons back? Why has this concept become acceptable? What happened to compassion, integrity and respect of others? Why do people feel the need to gossip and create drama everywhere they go? Why are some people just so mean? Why is there so much hostility towards one another?
What happen to kindness, patience and truthfulness?
How can we change this behavior in our personal lives and work environment? I think one person at a time not getting sucked into this conduct by walking away or stating I’m not going to participate in this activity anymore.
Why would we want discord and upheaval in our lives? We should want to encourage others to follow their dreams and aspirations? When people are complacent they sometimes become miserable and angry with their situation and take it out on others. It is time to change this demeanor and be pleasant to each other by listening and having some empathy? How about it? Let’s live our lives with joy instead of distress! 🙂 ~ Patti
Honesty with oneself is one of the biggest challenges towards personal growth. Honesty does not alter with each situation or with the people you hang around with. If you are conducting an honest way of life, you are the same person all the time even when by yourself.
Honesty, integrity and sincerity are not about hurting or offending others. Be tactful, sensitive, and being in the right moment can make an enormous difference when dealing with others. Honesty expresses wisdom and releases you from the expectations of others.
How can being honest with yourself and others change your path in life and encourage personal growth? Would this help you to pursue what you really want in life?
What is holding you back from being honest to yourself and others?
Faith is the daring of the SOUL to go farther than it can see. ~ William Newton Clarke
Have faith in yourself that you will reach your goal or dream. Just because you can’t see it right at this moment doesn’t mean you are not on the right track to achieve it. Keep pushing forward and you will see results. ~ Patti
Self reflection question: Spend some time reviewing your action steps towards your goal or dream. Write down all the things you have accomplished since you started working towards your goal or dream. Take a few minutes to celebrate those accomplishments.
Life is full of change. How we accept that change makes a big difference. Change is constant. Sometimes it is good and sometimes it is bad. How we approach it with our attitude may make it better or unbearable.
Why do you think it is hard for some to accept change and for others they just roll with it?
Who do you think is more successful? The people who do not accept change or the ones who do accept it? Why?
Change is like a butterfly. It flutters around until it finds a sweet spot. ~ Patti
There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning. – Louis L’Amour
These words are so inspiring. Think about times in your life that something ended a friendship, a relationship, career, the children growing up and moving out. When our lives change this gives us opportunities for other things to come in. Sometimes these circumstances are emotionally hard for us, but once we move past those feelings we start moving towards a new beginning.
The butterfly symbolizes change, joy and transformation. Be flexible to change. Be joyful in your attitude towards yourself and others. Be willing to continue to transform yourself to pursue your dreams, goals and aspirations.
