We all do it, play the comparison game. But it's unhealthy and here is some proof- Let's consider 8 powerful quotes that will provide you with motivation to stop comparing yourself to others.
1. "No-one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
- Eleanor Roosevelt
How do you feel about this quote? I like it because it shows that you are in control of your thoughts and that comparing yourself to others is a choice. You can either choose to be sucked into the trend of comparing yourself to other people who seem to be doing better than you, or you could decide to adopt a healthier viewpoint.
Today, let us discuss the importance of listening. Here's why listening is both a skill and an art that produces a lot of positive results when we converse with others.
"When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new."
We always talk about listening as being important in the communication process, but it is a valuable skill for more than just that. Listening not only connects you with the speaker, it gives you a brilliant opportunity to expand your own knowledge.
I think when we have conversations, we get into the habit of thinking we always need to be saying something, to appear engaged. But sometimes that over-emphasis on talking leads to a lack of listening, really listening.
What is a visionary? What makes a person one? Here are some key qualities displayed those who can be defined as visionary leaders, traits that we can all learn from.
1. Belief in the vision. It's not a joke.
What makes a visionary? Well a visionary has to have a powerful vision for the future. Something they would like to contribute to the world, or improve in day-to-day life. The important point is that they have relentless belief in that particular vision, allowing nothing to cloud their focus on it. Even if others call them crazy or unrealistic, they are not deflated or defeated, because their confidence is deeply rooted.
A visionary is therefore not easily swayed by the words or criticism of others, because if they were, their idea would be short-lived and fruitless. There's an interesting quote about visionaries that makes me smile - "Visionary: a name given to successful people who didn't listen when they were called delusional."
