Positive Ways to Deal Practical Life !

We simply wait for our chance to speak

If you observe the conversations around you, you’ll notice that, often, what many of us do is simply wait for our chance to speak. We’re not really listening to the other person, but simply waiting for an opening to express our own view. We often complete other people’s sentences, or say things like, “Yeah, yeah,” or “I know,” very rapidly, urging them to hurry up so that we can have our turn.

This harried form of communication encourages us to criticize points of view, overreact, misinterpret meaning, and form opinions, all before our fellow communicator is even finished speaking. No wonder we are so often annoyed, bothered, and irritated with one another. Sometimes, with our poor listening skills, it’s a miracle that we have any friends at all!

You’ll be pleasantly amazed at the softer reactions and looks of surprise as you let others completely finish their thought before you begin yours. Often, you will be allowing someone to feel listened to for the very first time. You will sense a feeling of relief coming from the person to whom you are speaking – and a much calmer, less rushed feeling between the two of you. 

No need to worry that you won’t get your turn to speak --- you will. In fact, it will be more rewarding to speak because the person you are speaking to will pick up on your respect and patience and will begin to do the same.

Cooperate & Communicate With Each Other To Achieve More !

When each one is working towards a common task, cooperation becomes easy. 

To get others' cooperation you need to share the task and the information regarding the task with others. When you communicate your motives using easy and simple language, everyone can understand and feel a part of the whole and they would naturally contribute their best. Any new task that you take up make sure you inform all the details to everyone related to the task. Even the minutest details when communicated to others, helps in creating a priority in them to give their best to the task.

Inspiration Positive Thoughts !!

Be fluid like water and adapt your nature to your surroundings. 
Your practice is not to resist. 
Instead of forcing things to be the way you want them to be, 
go with the flow.

To listen and to speak; to give and to receive; 
to help others and to be helped; 
to understand others and to be understood - 
these are the simple steps to restore balance in relationships. 

It is easy for a heart to break, but to put the pieces together is not so easy, 
as the heart is very delicate. 
If there is even a little bit of hurt, 
there is so much discomfort and restlessness. 
Our hearts have been fragmented over time 
and the pieces are all over the place.
But God has now found us and put us in His heart. 
He healed us and taught us how to smile.

Develop The Habit Of Thinking Positive !

Perform every task while in your self-respect and others will continue to cooperate with you. 

When you are doing something and you are in your self-respect, it creates cooperation. On the other hand if you have ego because of which you expect others to recognize your work and appreciate it, it creates competition and jealousy. When you find someone not cooperating with you, check within yourself why you are performing that task. If there is the slightest feeling of trying to prove yourself, remove it. Let there be the thought in the mind that you want only success in the task and nothing else.

Be Efficient & Save More !!

Plan ways to save money, time and energy. 
Look at your priorities and see if you can drop the least important items to free up your resources. The stronger your reasons for saving, the more ways you will find to save. 
Go on, make yourself more efficient. You can afford it.
