You can learn a lot about someone based on their conversation. I was in Wal-Mart the other day, just running around with Aria. A lady walked by talking to another lady and chuckled, “I love to see when dads suffer for a change.”

Hmmm..

I was running behind Aria, keeping her from puling things from the shelves, pushing the shopping cart and talking on the phone simultaneously but I would not come anywhere near calling it suffering. I was actually having a good time.

I would say with 99.9% certainty that this woman lives what “I” would consider a miserable life.

Why?

Because people talk about what they’re thinking about…or what their perception of things are.

You’ve heard the phrase, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” It’s so true. It’s all about perception.

She saw what I was going through as ‘suffering’ because SHE would have felt that way about HER experience.

What are some of the things you think about and talk about that you’re imposing ‘suffering’ on yourself.

Do you plop down on the couch after work and say, “I’m dead tired!” ?
When you’re feeling ill, do you declare, “I’m as sick as a dog!” ?

Practical Application

There are tons of phrases we use freely that impose suffering on ourselves.

Be aware of the things you’re saying about yourself and others. Make sure they’re the phrases that are attractin what you want and not what you don’t want.

Stop the Insanity!

frustration
Putting undue stress on yourself to accomplish a “unrealistic” goals can be self defeating.

What I mean to say is that it took you time to develop the belief system you currently have… so it only stands to reason that it is going to take some time for you to change that belief system. I’m not suggesting that it’s not possible for a person to

Picking up where I left off in the last post.

My conversation with this young lady turned into a whole new conversation when I pointed out that she was getting so upset about something that she had a significant level of attachment to. A significant level of what I’d like to call ‘significance’ which is the weight or importance that you put on something that can easily be causing that level of frustration.

What I was explaining to her is this:

Law Of Attraction and personality types – do they work together?

There are a number of popular “Self Help” books out there that deal with “personality types”. They list a number of categories and state that everyone fits neatly into one of them. People seem to

“I’m Surrounded By Idiots!”

I remember a long, loooong time ago :-) I used to say that all the time. I used to get so frustrated with people for “being idiots”.

They’d do ‘stupid’ things that would drive me insane. I mean REALLY stupid things that

I'm So StupidI just had an interesting conversation with a young lady.

I was at a store getting a few things, and as the young lady behind the counter was ringing up the order, she accidentally hit the wrong key, and apparently wiped the entire order out instead of tallying it up.

When she recognized that she did this, she hit the counter in disgust and said, “Dang, I’m so stupid for doing that!”

Of course, you know me; I saw this as a great opportunity to share some wisdom.

I banged on the counter the same way she did, and said
