How does one put in just a few paragraphs the immensity on the subject of relationships? We could talk about the people we love, our community, our government, our country, our world. But I think the topic at hand should start with the most important relationship we will ever have while residents on this beautiful planet, ourselves.
Tao Te Ching once said, “Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom.” How well do you know yourself? What are your dreams, desires, goals, and ambitions? Do you just think and wish your life is better, are you making a daily effort to make it happen?
What in your life right now do you want different? I’m sure the first thing that pops in the minds of most is more money. But is just more money going to bring the happiness you desire? What is it really that you want? Peace of mind that you and your family are financially independent? To come and go as you please and work when you want; without answering to a boss?
People tend to keep this “lottery mindset”, thinking if they just have that extra money, all will be better. But unless you learn to change your thinking and learn how to create the life of your dreams, you will always be wishing.
To quote Dr. Wayne Dyer, "Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose."
We always have a choice, always. People need to realize that they do have the power to learn and grow. No one has that power over another. Just as long as you don’t give up on your choices.
