SELF LOVE, NOT SELFISHNESS

Never deny yourself of love, acceptance and care even if others deny you.

Many are not interested in your aspirations and plans.

Many are not ready to find out your pains and struggles.

Many are not sensitive to your weaknesses and challenges.

If no one cares, care about yourself.

If all hate and reject you, love and accept yourself.

Self love is not merely selfishness, learn to love and accept yourself.

WHEN WE DON’T LISTEN…

Those who talk too much hardly listen.

Those who do not listen do not learn.

Those who do not learn do not normally grow and succeed.

Listening does not merely reveal our ignorance but our zeal to know more.

Listening does not merely make us subordinates, it is an opportunity to know and understand people and situations.

Even God listens. Learn to listen as human being limited in knowledge and power.

DECEPTIVE DISTANCE VIEW

It appeared attractive and nice at a distance but I completely lost interest when I personally encountered it.

You wish you were like them, because they appeared better, richer, joyful and peaceful than you but you are ignorant of their struggles.

Do not evaluate and envy others solely on their seeming positives, your current situation might be better than theirs.

It is good to appreciate the good in others but never envy them, you do not know their challenges and dark side.

ACCEPT THE UNCHANGEABLE

Accepting what cannot be changed is not a sign of mediocrity but a mark of maturity.

Some people cannot be controlled and changed, learn to accept and accommodate them.

Some losses are irredeemable, learn to accept and let go to grow.

Some situations are natural and inevitable, learn to accept and patiently bear them.

Learn to accept the unchangeable, it is not only a mark of maturity but also a step towards joy, peace and progress.

WISHES WITHOUT EFFORT

Having the best building plan is not the sole requirement for building. We need materials, labour and skills, as well to make the plan a reality.

To succeed in life, it is not enough to have best aspirations, your efforts and the will of God are paramount.

Life lived solely on wishes is attractive and highly promising but it hardly attains any significant improvement.

We cannot make it in life when we passively sit at our comfort zones with our finest plans and high expectations without any prudent and productive effort.

Your best plan is not enough, make conciuos efforts to actualise it.

FLESH AND BONES

Our body is made up flesh and bones.

A boneless flesh is too fragile to stand the harshness and struggles of life whiles a fleshless bone is too scary to be accommodated.

Your strengths and weaknesses make who you are; you are incomplete without the other.

When our strengths are not checked by our weaknesses, it may give way for pride.

When our weaknesses are not inspired by our strengths, it is likely to make us feel inferior.

Learn to have a prudent management of your strengths and weaknesses.

SELFISH BENEFICIARIES

Many are mostly interested in what they can get from you, not your growth and well-being.

We only find out their gains, not their pains and struggles.

So far as they are ready to help does not mean that they have everything.

Be sensitive, work and pray for the well-being of your benefactors.

THE WAY TO THE END

Nothing comes free. Even you need to make an effort to enjoy what is put on the silver platter.

We are mostly interested in the beauty and dignity of our destination but we do not consider the hurdles on the way to get to the destination.

We are normally interested in the privileges of the position but not the responsibilities attached to the position.

Do not over focus on the end, consider also the way to get the end.

ATTRACTIVE, BUT NOT NEEDED

So far as it is appealing to the eye and the ear does not mean you need it.

There are several attractive personalities, ideas and products which may have little or no impact on your peace, joy and progress.

Learn to seek what you really need, not what merely attracts you.
