Remember the mantra:
“I am a powerful being. I am a master of my sense organs. I do everything I want to do. I eat and drink only that which is healthy for me.”
Any habit we want to change needs to begin with our thought. Often we think and talk about what we are unable to do and that becomes our mantra. The more we think like this, the habit gets stronger. Thus, create a thought, for what we want reality to be.
What one cannot achieve with pressure can be very easily achieved with patience. Patience brings a state of calm inside which helps in finding the answers that already lie within. It gives them the courage to work on the problem in a cool and relaxed way until the solution is found. It brings creativity even to mundane things.
Also, be punctual. To arrive early, or right on time, is a sign of respect for yourself and others. By being punctual you reduce your stress levels and avoid causing inconvenience to others. The key is planning. Allow extra time in your preparations and for any delays. Remember, getting ready, even locking the door, catching the lift, walking to the car, the Metro all takes time. Maybe, the secret to punctuality is as simple as waking up when you are supposed to wake up.
If you want to move people, if you want to motivate others for a project or even just to reach others, you need to be aware of the undercurrents affecting them and not their surface behaviour. The key to understanding others better is to be more aware of your own feelings and under-currents, because, at a deep level, we are very much alike. If you understand your own fears and strong motivators, you will understand others much better.
