Focusing on The Past Clouds The Future

“You’ll seldom experience regret for anything that you’ve done. It is what you haven’t done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savor it. Value your present moments. Using them up in any self-defeating ways means you’ve lost them forever.” – Wayne Dyer
Life is happening right now, right before our very eyes. So why are so many of us stuck in the past? It is a common experience to focus too much on what has happened previously.

Are You Sure You’re Listening?

There is a lot of noise in the world – crowds and cars, air traffic, people yelling in the street. Even if we are safely at home away from the chaos, turn on any news channel and you are bound to hear news anchors and newsmakers screaming at each other.
When we were children, we were told to listen to our parents or other elders. Most of us would quietly comply. But now when we are told to listen, often times we just hear what is being said. Our minds may wander to things we must accomplish during the day at work or at home.

Three Things that the World Desperately Needs

There are three qualities that I regard very highly. Sadly, there is an insufficient amount of the following traits: love, empathy and respect. These are basic aspects of life that everyone in the world is entitled to – whether he or she is rich or poor; a high-level CEO or someone who cleans the bathroom at a company. The world is in great need of much more love, empathy and respect. I think a lot of our global problems would be lessened – if not outright eliminated – if we were to put forth more of these three emotions.

Less Shouting and More Listening is Needed

“Dialogue means the talk of two hearts; debate means the conflict of two intellects. Dialogue means the meeting of two individuals; debate means the conflict of two individuals. Nobody gets defeated in dialogue, both win; in debate both get defeated, nobody wins.” – Osho
No matter how hard we try to avoid them, conflicts in our professional and personal lives are inevitable. At work, employees may not be fulfilling their duties, which will cause us stress. Meanwhile at home, family members could be causing tension for any number of reasons.
