YOUR PERSONAL POWER MESSAGE:
10. I am curious
Judging situations and people is a natural part of life. It can save us from a threatening situation. But have you ever noticed how often we judge other people and ourselves? How often do you make assumptions and judgments about others without knowing all the facts? Sometimes we get defensive because of our preconceived notions. The personal power that you can use and unleash today is curiosity. Choose to be curious and compassionate without judging or labeling.
Everything has a reason and a story behind it. It’s also easy for us to feel offended by something someone says or does. Today, choose to see what story is behind their actions. What caused someone to say or do something that clearly had an effect on you? Choose not to react, judge or label things. Just observe them.
What we think is bad may turn into a wonderful opportunity. What we think is good, could take a turn for the worst. Things just are. Learn to detach from events and circumstances and not label them. Simply observe what occurs and ask yourself- I wonder what this means? Then just wait and see.
