It’s Friday. At the end of work today, take 15 minutes to review how the week went. Did you do more that was expected from you? If not, note immediately how you can mitigate the lapses. Until you can do more on current responsibilities, you will not qualify yourself for that next promotion. No matter what, feel great, reward your mind with optimism as you leave office – and make sure you show admiration for that company. Until you like where you work, you will struggle to do the best work therein.
If you do not like your teacher, you will likely not do well in that class.
If you do not like your school, you will likely struggle in your program.
If you do not like your nation, you will likely see only obstacles.
The greatest challenge is the Liberation of the mind. Just as the crickets sing, and the nightingales deliver the melodies, your mind can condition your awareness and observation.
