Try To Understand Other Person's View !

When someone brings their opinions and beliefs to a conversation, armed and ready for battle, it's easy to disarm them. 

All you have to say is, "That's an interesting way to see it. Not sure I agree, but I can see what you mean." 

You can do this without anxiety because you're genuinely seeking to understand the other person's point of view. 

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.

Express your gratitude toward others !

The people we remember to thank, in person, with a thoughtful note or gesture, or a phone call, are infinitely more likely to help us again than those we take for granted or neglect to thank. It’s so obvious, yet so few people really understand how this works.

People love to be acknowledged, admired, and thanked. People love to be thanked, not out of any selfish need but simply because it feels good to be acknowledged. And when we are sincerely acknowledged, the acknowledgment acts as reinforcement that we have done the right thing. Thus, we want to do it again. 

The next time you do something really nice or helpful for someone and they thank you, take note of how it makes you feel. 

It’s true that there are many instances where you would help someone again without expecting any thanks. However, you’ll find yourself even more willing to help someone who expresses their gratitude and acknowledged your help.

By engaging in constant gratitude, you’ll be guaranteeing success, happiness and better relationships.

Search The Love Within By Knowing Yourself !!

Everyone looks outside for everything, including love. Love is all that everyone wants. Their purpose in life is love; to love someone, to be loved, to love their car, to love their dog, to love their garden etc. But all these types of love are perishable and are destined to fade away. The love we really want is within us all the time. When we feel love, where is the love coming from? It is within us, that’s because we are love. So I need to sit in silence and get to know myself again, because when I get to know my true self I will find out that I am love. I don’t need to look for it outside. I have an imperishable supply of the most sweetest love possible within me. 

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.

Find The Beauty That Is Hidden Within You !

Introversion brings empowerment of the self. Just as a tortoise withdraws from the external environment after its work is done, we too need to find time for ourselves. Amidst the activity of the day, we need to make time to look within and find the beauty that is hiddenthere. When we do this as a practice it brings a positive experience that empowers the self. We need to give ourselves a little time everyday at regular intervals. During this time, we need to look within and find our own uniqueness and we will find that we are ableto have access to our positivity. This practice will help us during a difficult time too and we will be able to use these qualities under all circumstances. So we will not be a victim to situations but will be able to give what is required at that time.

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.
