M. Scott Peck –“The Road Less Traveled”

For this week’s optimizing yourself exercise, I am going to actively listen to people, without getting distracted with other things.

Dr. Peck says one of the most important ways you can show people you love them is by listening to them. By investing the effort to pay attention to them, we extend their spiritual growth as well as your own. It is a two way street, where both the giver and the receiver benefit.

I am going to actively listen to the people that are speaking to me this week, and I will let you know how it goes next week.

Week 36 – Bettering Yourself – Aug 26 – Sept 1, 2013 – Embrace My Shyness


“Shyness accompanies love. See how children are endowed with shyness; it is natural to them.”

Wisdom Dawns Website

For this week’s bettering yourself exercise, I am going to erase “don’t be shy” from my mind, and accept my natural shyness as part of me. I will let you know how it goes next week.
