Excerpts taken from my book ’13 Steps To Positive Change’ Questions, Thoughts, Perspectives:
Introduction of 13 Steps to Positive Change
The Human Condition
Our charge is to act responsible
Our charge is to teach responsibility
Our charge is to help one another respectfully
…and if we do not then our kind are already extinct!
The human condition is frail, don’t be surprised when we act out, we are irrational
There are times you will experience moments of exhortation, saver them, they are priceless
Learn how to make a good cup of tea
It is in the process that we learn the value of our actions. Take time to cultivate the act and
resultant feelings that give you your desired outcomes.
Your mother and father are human, so are your siblings
Looking to the future possibilities is what will keep you yearning for life
Always leave room for the ‘other’ in life
Sometimes the purpose of one’s help is not supportive of what you want
Understanding the motives of those around you will calm your anxiety.
I Promise/Guarantee… No promises, no guarantees just Deed – this is proof positive!
Are you still asking for earthly things?
If you are, you are missing the point of a supreme being. He, It, The Source, must be able to support you in ways far greater than material stuff. My house master would exclaim in fits of exasperation, ‘God, give me strength!’ Now that’s a pray.
If you have ever worked in hospice care you will understand the concept to ‘Die and be there’ – read Bhagavad-Gita. Mahatma Gandhi did and he removed the greatest empire from India to persecute man kind, the British.
How about asking for…
It is the intangibles that support the tangible outcomes in our life. The things we ask most.
How about simply having FAITH!
Your mind –for mind power
Identify intangible assets that give tangible results. Your gut instinct is all you really have.
If you ever want to have a good relationship with someone, cultivate a garden or take care of a pet. It is in your willingness to provide for such life, the care for such life that assures this life that you care.
Mum use to sing, “Cram it in Shove it in, children’s heads are hollow, They must Learn the Things Today that they will Need Tomorrow”.
Tomorrow is why you learn the knowledge today so that you can manage the changes of tomorrow.
