When you show enthusiasm you show you care. Passion, excitement, intent, focus – that is enthusiasm. When you care, you are able to solve bigger challenges, you are able to overcome harder problems, you are able to help more. Your enthusiasm shows how much you care.
We admire those who take responsibility.
We find meaning in our lives as we take more responsibility.
It doesn’t matter what is best for you.
It does matter what will help you serve the best.
Your creativity gets killed as you do what you were not meant to do.
Your light dims as you do what you were not meant to do.
Your resolve weakens as you do what you were not meant to do.
We were meant to experience joy. Sadness, pain, suffering will always come – but that is not what we were built for, that is not what we were meant to do. That is why when we have a choice, we must choose joy.
Spirituality is the voice of the heart, the language of the soul, the cry of our desires. As we speak and search, as we learn and share, we can come to understand, we will begin know, we will find the truth that we need.
Stay positive so others listen. Listening to others complaining is hard. When we are negative, we reject and repel those around us. Positivity attracts. If we want to be heard, be positive.
If you want to help others to believe something, they must first admit that it is possible. Once something is possible, then anything is plausible and now your only job is to help them see that it could become probable.
Do not be afraid of those who are smart or clever.
Do not be afraid of those who are foolish or ignorant.
Be afraid of those who smart and foolish and those who are clever and ignorant.
The greatest gift you can give someone is to help them feel wanted, to be needed, to belong. Show them you are grateful for them and they will always feel connected. Show your gratitude and change their life.
If we are dedicated to the study of virtue…
If we are focused on learning true principles…
If we are committed to understanding truth…
We won’t have the time or the desire to be unvirtuous, or morally corrupt, or misguided.
