Every living thing has a “creative mechanism” – a built-in guidance system for achieving goals. Know that even the most mundane or routine activity is the result of your thinking patterns and should not continue unconsciously. Without attention, stress will accumulate although you are unaware of it. Overcome fatigue. Picture yourself as a master of faith.
Emotions are the colour of life, and you would be a drab creature without them. But you must restrain those emotions that are negative and destructive, or they will control you. Experience is not what happens to you, it is what you do with what happens.
You are not the same person today that you were yesterday. Asceticism and the experience of profound wisdom bring maturity. Inconsistent discipline produces insecurity. According to Aristotle Onassis, the secret to success is to know something great that nobody else knows.
Impersonal and imaginative questions can make for stimulating conversation. Do you listen and learn? Make your contributions visible to establish your value. Get in the habit of enhancing your flexibility. Know that enthusiasm is a way of life not an emotional problem.
Think carefully about your own desires and fears as part of your renegotiation strategy. Know that the one who wins the war is not always the strongest but often confident and brave. Keep on top of current events and notice changes in your favour.
Don’t be afraid of asking or ashamed of learning. Be courageous in right action and steady in decision-making. Taking charge in crisis is to define your role and to maintain discipline. Pay more attention to the voices of common people and confidantes, but learn from nature.
As a leader in any circumstance, you must dominate the situation or it will dominate you. General Douglas MacArthur said it is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it. Know that people don’t like to follow the leader who is not alert or has trouble coming to a right decision.
Be ready to be on your best behaviour for a long time. It is pleasant and important to find that real merit is appreciated. Your dreams could inspire a new social life, but as long as social invitations are being offered you must go ahead full-speed to show your personal integrity.
Everyone is responsible for being sympathetic in social life, and the higher your position the greater your responsibility. Never make a fool of yourself by acting in doubt. Change gears to find your right path. Do what needs to be done as the situation presents itself.
The more self-aware you are in social life the better you will behave. Your different idea of the truth must have a logical basis. You must prove your experience to others. Know that image is important in social relationships, and love is the essence of the heart.
Your first step to getting more comfortable should be a willingness to get uncomfortable. Develop immunity to your anxiety, depression and adverse responses to stress. True silence is mind nourishment, and refreshment is required right now to empower your thoughts.
Minds, like bodies, will often fall into an ill state from mere excess of comfort, according to the psychological research of Charles Dickens. Your willingness to forego comfort in pursuit of learning is the right action. Learn to be comfortable with discomfort.
