Yes, You Can

Before you start your journey, you must conquer yourself. You must conquer your ego. Ego is the issue with us. You don’t need to conquer the world, but you need to conquer yourself. Without that, you can’t do anything.

Marcus Aurelius said, “Yes, you can- if you do everything as if it were the last thing you were doing in your life, and stop being aimless, stop letting your emotions override what your mind tells you.” Don’t let your emotions control your decisions. For example, when you are angry, don’t make any decisions. Because anger is bad. It is a bad emotion. If you allow it to control you, it will mess you up.

When you are angry, try to focus on something that will make you feel really better about the situation. Learn to master your own emotions. If you want to conquer the world, you must first conquer your emotions. If you want to conquer other people, you must first conquer your emotions. Because you are your master.

The True Meaning Of Communication

Communication is not what you think it is. It is more than just talking. It is more than just nodding your head. It is more than forcing others to listen to you.

The world is in trouble because people don’t listen anymore. But we want others to listen to us. That is not going to happen. When it comes to communicating with other people, you must learn to listen to them. When you listen to people, you will hear them. They will hear you. But if you REALLY want people to listen to you, you must respect them. You must treat your message with love, happiness, and compassion.

“Communication is- start by understanding- your own understanding about people. Even though you want them to understand you, you know, it is- unless you understand people, it is almost impossible.”

Shunryu Suzuki

Communication is an emotional business. People pay attention to your emotions when you are talking. People pay attention to what you are not telling them. People want to listen to you. But you must make them comfortable.

If you want to be a good communicator, you must be a good listener. Because communication is about listening, not about talking.

The true meaning of communication is understanding. Before you say something, try to understand the true meaning, the hidden meaning of your message. People don’t care about what you say; they care about how you say it. If you want people to listen to you, you must understand them.
