Good day! Let's quickly review yesterday's article.
Revenge is a wrong thing to embark on. Revenge brings nothing but negativity, and it'll require to generate much negative energy to puul it off. Instead of that, you should just focus your energy on healing from whatever pain made you to want to revenge. Sometimes, we're concerned about revenge because we've been clouded by the hurt or pain we experienced. And the more we put our energy to revenge, the more we get emotionally broken because of how much time we've subjected our minds to revenge.
The best to do is to forgive and move forward even though it's not as easy as said. Bit we don't get to think of this because our minds are already filled up with negativity and we don't even have time to think about another way to resolve the issue other than nursing the wounds caused by the pain or hurt. It's important to always forgive and forget so that we'll become better humans because if we don't forgive, we'll be holding ourselves back instead of moving forward.
Most of us have been hurt at some point in life but it'll be bad of we allow it consume us by making sure we revenge because if not we'll be letting them win, which is a wrong mindset.
The main reason you'd want to hurt the other person is because you have not healed. And the funny thing is that the person that wronged you might not even know they did something wrong, but in your mind, you'll be thinking it's intentional and revenge will be justified.
When you're planning on revenge, you'll be aggravating the problem and playing into the hand of the person or people that hurt you. You can move forward without having to revenge.
Special thanks to my sponsors, subscribers and also thanks to those who thumbs up and comment on my post, I really appreciate all of you.
Respect is something we all want. Everyone wants to be respected. We expect it in our personal lives and in our professional lives. We want to earn respect by showing that we're worthy and by showing that we're responsible, by how hard we work and what we produce. So, if you want to be respected, learn to apologize for your mistakes when necessary.
We all make mistakes. That is a fact of life. What we do with those mistakes determines whether or not we deserve the respect and appreciation of others. The only way to learn to make better and fewer mistakes is to learn from them. You can learn from both small and large mistakes. There is no shame in making a mistake but there is shame in refusing to acknowledge a mistake after being told about it or if it is so big that it dominates the conversation.
Learning to apologize for your mistakes can be a difficult thing to do. After all, it is human nature to resist apologizing for what we feel we did not do wrong. The funny thing about apologies, however, is that they are not just about being contrite for what you did wrong – although that may be necessary. Instead, an apology is a way of showing respect and contrition to everyone you work with or meet. You can earn respect by learning to apologize for what you get wrong but not for who you are or what you accomplish. Apologize for disrespecting someone else but not for setting performance standards.
If you want to be respected, learn to apologize for your mistakes when necessary, and by this I mean actually apologize. We all make mistakes, we're all human. There's nothing wrong with that. The destructive thing is when we can't admit when we are out of line or when we break the rules. Have you ever been on a team where someone made a mistake and they got defensive instead of saying that they were sorry?
People will literally fight over who is responsible for something going wrong and then they both refuse to take the blame and neither is willing to admit that they made a mistake. It's infuriating
I've learned that to earn respect, you don't apologize for who you are or what you accomplish. You apologize for disrespecting someone else. You apologize for setting performance standards and then not following through with them. It's easy to apologize for a failure to be respectful but you must never apologize for your values or for your expectations. In fact, it would be better to apologize for a lack of follow-through rather than give in and lower your standards.
Thanks for reading through. I hope loved it.
