How often have you said, "I just don't understand it." When certain politicians share their views . . . when soap operas go off the air . . . when the debt ceiling is reaching it's peak . . . when deadly explosions kill innocent men and women . . . when 6 year old beauty queens retire . . . and when the price of gas hits $4.00 a gallon. It is difficult to understand why things are the way they are. You can look at understanding as being kind, sympathetic, and tolerant or you can look at it as it relates to your skills, ability to learn, and the knowledge that you have gained in life. Here are 5 No-fail strategies for understanding how to build a better you when it seems that the world is falling apart:
1. Be self-assured and your confidence will grow.
2. Find creative ways to achieve personal development.
3. Recognize the power of perception.
4. Work on becoming hardy.
5. Keep your sense of humor.
There is a saying, “God said to me: ‘Your task is to build a better world.’ I answered, ‘How can I do that? This world is such a large, vast place, so complicated now, and I am so small and useless. There’s nothing I can do.’ But God in his wisdom said, ‘Just build a better you’. Understand that it can make sense to build a better you in a world that sometimes does not make sense! Does that make sense? Ah, you have grasped the concept of "Understanding".
