informed action

Listening promotes informed action.

There are very few things that I am able to create on my own. Each project relies on the input of multiple sources to be successful. I am willing to consider the ideas and advice of others to help me decide the wisest course of action.

I continue to listen to the wisdom of my parents although I am now grown. Their experience in life far exceeds mine, so I take their words to heart.

My mother is my example of the value of showing patience. Hearing her reasons for being patient with difficult people is eye-opening. I learn from her that allowing others to vent enables them to eventually come to a point of calmness.

I keep her advice in mind when I am dealing with difficult people at work. Although I am tempted to lose my cool, I remain calm and allow them to release their emotions.

After they vent, they are ready and open to listening to my perspective. My end goal is achieved when I open my heart to what others have to say. Their actions provide an indication of how best to proceed with them.

My teachers are those people who have any knowledge that I may be missing. I respect their genius and use their teachings to show me the way forward.

Today, I am blessed to have a heart that is open to actually hearing what others have to say. There are answers out there for me once I open myself to whatever source they come from.

We don’t always have all the answers, and sometimes it is important to remember that we always have things to learn as we grow.  This is where affirmations are a great help.   This weeks affirmation is as follows:

Although I am educated and experienced, I accept that there is much that I lack knowledge of.

 

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. Who are some of my greatest teachers in life?
  2. Who do I turn to when I am facing a difficult emotional decision?
  3. How do I decide when to take my own advice over someone else’s?

About Weekly Affirmations

Each week I find it helpful to use affirmations.   I personally find using the same affirmation for 7 days more effective, so I will share them each Thursday with you.
You may ask why Thursday, well it usually is the day of the week that I struggle the most.   I found Sunday’s as a start not working for me, I tried then Monday and discovered that I would be stressed from work.
The discovery that the affirmation sits in my mind over the weekend that by Monday was a game changer.  It became part of me effortlessly.  You can use them as you see best fit.  There is no right or wrong with affirmations as long as you use them.   Using the affirmations in your daily life helps you build the life that you desire.

Listening Helps Make Informed Action

Words have power — use them to your advantage to make today a great day for you!   If you are always saying you can’t do something you are setting yourself up for failure.  Use these affirmations to assist you on your spiritual journey to grow and prosper.
