Oh I had to just share this inspiration here. I was needing a bit of an attitude adjustment and this resonated with me:
Magnificent, Meaningful Results
The answer to conflict is not more conflict. The answer to indifference is not more indifference.
MY THOUGHTS: Don't try to always have the upper hand.
The best answers are made up of effort, genuine caring, commitment, integrity, and an unassailable respect for what is good and true. You are fully capable of all that and more.
MY THOUGHTS: Be mindful and true to who I am and my interests.
Winning an argument doesnít necessarily produce any real value. What creates value is going beyond the argument, beyond the superficial need to prove youíre right.
MY THOUGHTS: Think about the reasons your are trying so hard. Is it truly that valuable? Truly decide that?
Even though you may not fully agree with someone, you can both still cooperate to great mutual and universal benefit. It is always very much in your interest, and in the interest of the whole world, for you to do so.
MY THOUGHTS: Think about the end goal, that is mutually beneficial.
Ultimately, itís not the posturing that matters. The actual results are what truly matter, and continue long after the arguing and posturing have ceased.
MY THOUGHTS: Don't let the need to be right stur up emotions that override my momentum in areas that are already right.
You, and everyone else, can create magnificent, meaningful results. Right now is an excellent time to do so.
MY THOUGHTS: Yep, just do it!
