Currently a mist the stacks of design magazines and books (currently Carolyne Roehm and William Morris!) in my studio home office. I also have books that seek words to build and inspire me , my thoughts and actions. I have been following Brendon Burchard for just over a year now and have learned a lot about what drives the mind and heart in us and in myself. Its fuels the hunger to be better and I love to learn new things everyday while also learning from those around me. I strongly feel that we all learn from each other, that no one person is perfect but our strengths are brought out in the services we give to others together - realizing this we are Building LIFE. So with these thoughts, I want to share from my current read, 'Motivation Manifesto' by Brendon Buchard. Here he discusses the Seven Temptations which are impatience, disappointment, desperation, aggression, hurt, loyalty and power.
In particular for this Monday Mantra from the 'Temptation of Aggression'............."If I removed my anger or hurt from this situation, and acted from my highest self, what would I do now?" Responding well to such a question is what made Gandhi and KING and Mandela so focused and true and admired.
The world will push at us and enervate us and seek our conformity and obedience. People will be rude and mean and absentminded. So let us choose a higher road, maintaining our values and standing for peace even in the midst of what feels like war. Over time, we will always find that patience shall overcome aggression and LOVE shall overcome hate.
From the Motivation Manifesto, by Brendon Burchard
What beautiful words of inspiration.........Happy Monday Beautiful People of the world make this YOUR Mantra this week, for Life.
