Most people tend to express problems in ways that do not reveal the true source of their pain.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

And most people reply to such cries for help with cries for help. [Eckhardt Tolle]

It's all about the huge influence our unconscious brain exerts, as part of the human condition.

 

Under-Promise and Over-Deliver…Under-Talk & Over-Listen

The Thinking Behind the Tweet

While people are very busy, somehow they manage to remember the promises you didn’t deliver on. And, if people are talking there is a reason for it. I mean, people have reasons for saying things even if the things they are saying are not on the same topic as the things you are thinking while you could be listening while they are talking. Rather than thinking all that stuff by yourself and waiting for them to stop talking so you can get your thoughts delivered…listen.

If you want to influence others, influence yourself first. Make little changes for the better. Then share that good habit.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

All great leaders make major changes to their way of dealing with 'their personal challenges' and their way of interacting with other people. 

All great leaders learn how to replace Bad Habits with Good Habits.

Self-control is magnetic.

It's OK to have an ego; it's not OK when an ego has you.

The Thought Behind The Tweet

When it comes to ego, I believe moderation is the right course.

Eastern philosophies teach the merits of reduction of ego...removal of it to the extent that is possible. [Total removal of ego being a blissful state.]

Western capitalists have illustrated the serious damage caused by high, out-of-control egos.

It seems to me human beings were meant to have egos...why else would virtually all of us [if not all of us] have them? 

But, moderation is required...self-control, that is.

Some people become problem magnets...attracting a never-ending series of similar problems.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Many of us don't see the problems coming let alone see we are the specialists who create them.

For some people - problems get totally out of control...arriving one after another...time after time after time.

Some people cannot get out of their 'problem ruts'. They need help. They need the benefits found in other people's talents & strengths.

 

 

When Opportunities seek out people to visit, they pretty much avoid all the too-busy people.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Many people have a self-image of a too-busy person..."I am too busy to do that!

Opportunities prefer to visit with people who have some time to spend with them, some time to get to understand them, some time to hold their hands and walk with them....then run with them.

The more you hurry the more the Opportunities pass you by.
