If you can’t persuade people with reason,then you are not yet good at it.
People often look in other people what they lack,which is the real reason that makes them feel sad.
There are only two ways you can live with a person who is a complete opposite to you:
Embrace the fact that they are who they are and align yourself with them; or
Embrace the fact that they are who they are and be yourself to create a balance in their life.
As long as you have a good control over your language and thoughts,you will never run out of ideas.
If the other people ask you to listen to their problems,do listen.
It will give them relief to get it all off their chest (and maybe some good advice in return by you 😉).
It will serve as a reminder to you,as to how simpler your life is compared to others and your problems are far more manageable than that of the others.
And lastly,it will help you to learn from the failures of others and be prepared for any problem alike.
People may or may not listen to you if you have something good to say.If they know about it they will just shrug it off and if they didn’t know about it they may still shrug it off under the pretext of common sense.
People may or may not listen to you if you tell them something they don’t know.It depends on the recipient circumstances and the informant’s credibility.
And people will definitely resist you (even a tiny bit) if you tell them something they know is wrong because humans are resistant to any change (big or small).
But if they are desperate,regardless of good or bad,knowing or unknowing and right or wrong; they will discard all the decisive factors and go with whatever works.
Getting your family and friends to help you is a sign of love.
Getting strangers to help you is a sign of talent.
Asking the right questions is the first step towards finding the right answers.
Accepting your cravings and fears is the first step towards getting rid of them.
Unless you accept that you have an illness within you,you will not look for a cure.
Try to guess how much your fruits and vegetables weigh (separate bunches preferably).Then check your answer using a weighing scale (do this activity while shopping if you like).
Overtime you will pick up the skill of guessing the right number of kilos or pounds (or whatever unit you’re into) and acquire an amazing skill of balance (pun intended).
