True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
~ Albert Einstein
I have always been a curious person and have enjoyed learning. Having spent most of my career in education, it was quite a surprise to find out how much I struggled with learning a new job. The struggle was not with others as much as with myself. An inner voice, my own inner critic, seemed to wreak havoc over my sense of competence. Taming it became part of the challenge!
If you want to study yourself – look into the hearts of other people.
If you want to study other people – look into your own heart.
~ Friedrich von Schiller
Are you up for a challenge? It requires only a small time commitment, but it does need mental effort. The benefits may include better relationships, improved health, motivation to achieve goals and greater life satisfaction. You can do this yourself, or better yet – take it into your workplace.
I don’t divide the world into the weak and the strong, or the successes and the failures … I divide the world into the learners and nonlearners.
~ Benjamin Barber
