Daily Om: What Makes People Tick
Today I did something that I have been wanting to try for the last few weeks. I receive an email each day called "DailyOm" and it's like getting a hug in the mail each day. It provides perspective on all sorts of situations that we as human beings deal with each day.
There's also the fact that many of us are small business owners, entrepreneurs, freelancers, or just want to make some money doing what we love. We interact wth others quite a bit and things don't always go smoothly. Today's Daily Om is about "what makes people tick."
Usually each message is just 3 paragraphs long. What I want to do is read the Daily Om, and express my thoughts about what's being said. It's my hope that you have something to say too.
The idea is that so often in life we disagree with others. It causes stress because we don't often know why they feel the way they do. Part of what we should consider doing is getting to know the other person, seeing where they come from, and how that affects their current perspective. This way, we will be able to set the appropriate expectations and stop ourselves from feeling anxiety or upset over their opinions or decisions.
I hope it is helpful to you. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
