Daily Wisdom

Why are we so quick to judge, condemn, criticize, or attack others? When it comes to other people, we often become so intolerable of their mistakes and failings, while we are so gentle and slow in judging ourselves.

How good it will be if we can reverse the situation, if we can learn to be quick and very critical in judging ourselves, and gentle and slow in judging and criticizing our neighbours. The late Dr. Wayne Dyer, once said, if you have a choice to be kind or be right when dealing with others, choose to be kind.

Try to show a little kindness today and see what difference it will make in the lives of others and you too. Become more tolerable, more forgiving and less critical of others around you. And remember this message from our Lord, “If thy hand offend thee, cut it off,” is a word for our sins; for the sins of others, “Father, forgive them.”

Stop Thinking About What will Go Wrong

There is a reason why we do not always have the things we desire, or able to implement our ideas like we see them in our minds. This reason is doubt. Doubt is destructive especially self doubt. Too often you find someone who plans to do something, but at the same time he/she is doubting if it will work.

God’s word says, if we don’t doubt in our hearts but believe instead, what we say or do will come to pass. But this is so difficult for us most times especially when you pay attention or consider the things happening around you; your lack of money, poor economy, poor health condition, lack of education, lack of support etc, you just find yourself doubting your success.

Folks no matter how tough it is, if you really want to achieve success, you must try not to doubt yourself. Stop thinking about things that will go wrong, and instead focus on the things that will go right. Most of us are always imagining the “what if” scenarios; what if I am rejected? What if people don’t buy my product? What if the money never comes? What if my heart gets broken? What if he/she cheats on me? What if I flunk the test? What if this or that?

Don’t Put Off Living

Many of us believe that we will be happy once we achieve some specific goals that we have set for ourselves. Maybe the goal is getting a promotion at work, getting a new job, getting married, driving a nicer car, and so on. But too often, we discover that even after attaining those goals, we still aren’t happy with our lives. Dale Carnegie once wrote; “one of the most tragic things I know about the human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of engaging the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.”

Let us not put off living today, and be like “the child who says ‘Someday when I am a big boy.’ The big boy says ‘Some day when I grow up.’ And then grown up he says ‘Someday when I get married.’ After he is married, the thought changes to ‘Someday when I am able to retire.’ And then when retirement comes, he looks back over the landscape traversed; a cold wind seem to sweep over it, somehow he has missed it all, and it is gone. Life, we learn too late, is in the living in the tissue of everyday and hour.” – Dale Carnegie

Folks let us be appreciative of where we are, what we have right now. Don’t put off being happy today until tomorrow, or until you have certain goals or success, because while you will be happy when your goals, and dreams have been realized, you will discover that the happiness is only momentarily and then you are off again to seek further sources of happiness.

“By continuously engaging in the cycle of longing, you never actually allow yourself to be in the present. You end up living your life at some point just off in the future. You only have one moment – the one right here, right now. If you skip over ‘here’ in your rush to get ‘there’, you deny yourself the full range of feelings and sensations that can only be experienced in the present moment.” – Cherie Carter – Scott.

Our present moment is a mystery that we are part of….Here and now is where all the wonder of life lies hidden…when all is said and done, now is all there is, and all there ever has been. – Dr. Wayne Dyer
