The Fundamental Truths that Precede Happiness

The Fundamental Truths that Precede Happiness | Unplug | Scoop.it
Practical Tips for Productive Living
Susan Taylor's insight:

Certain fundamental truths must be discovered before you can find true happiness.

 

  1. It's impossible for anyone else to define YOU.  You are the only one in this world who gets to say who you are.
  2. You were born with everything you need.  There is nothing you are missing.
  3. Perfection is a man-made illusion; we are beautifully imperfect beings.
  4. You are NOT your thoughts.  Your mind doesn’t define you, nor does it control you.
  5. Your beliefs can be modified to lift you up.  Whatever you believe to be true about yourself and life in the long-term becomes your reality.
  6. The past and future do not exist.  Now is the moment.
  7. Your calling in your life is to fully express who you already are.  Your uniqueness, in every respect, is your gift.
  8. Challenges are gifts for your growth.  Without challenges you cannot unlock your full potential.
  9. Forgiveness is choosing happiness over hurt.  We forgive others to free ourselves and walk into compassion and love by doing so.
  10. Surrender is the essence of a happy life.  Letting go is not giving up.

Are You An Active Listener?

Are You An Active Listener? | Unplug | Scoop.it
Many of us don't listen as well as we could. Learn how to use "active listening" to make a conscious effort to hear and understand what people are saying.
Susan Taylor's insight:

To truly listen is one of the most important life skils you can develop.  Listening helps you to obtain information, understand, learn, and derive meaning; over and above all of that, it has a major impact on the quality of your relationships.

 

Unfortunately, research suggests that we are not good listeners. 

 

The way to become a better listener?  Practice "active listening."

 

Active listening involves making a conscious effort to hear not only the words that are being said, but more importantly, try to understand the meaning behind those words.

 

In this blog and video, Mind Tools helps us to pay attention, defer judgement and indicate to another that we truly want to hear what they have to say.
