The joy of being

If you’re willing to admit it when you’re wrong, you’ll be able to improve and get it right. When you accept that you don’t know it all, there’s so very much that you will learn.

Spend more time listening than you do talking, and it will add greatly to the effectiveness of what you say. Let go of the need to prove how smart you are, and your wisdom will deeply grow.

Keep in mind that there are many other points of view, and that will make your own perspective more valuable. Assume that there’s room for improvement, and the improvement will surely come.

Stop worrying so much about who or what you appear to be. Instead, put your energy into fully expressing the unique and beautiful person you truly are.

There’s no need to strive when you’re fully alive. Let go of the trying and live the rich, exquisite joy of being.

— Ralph Marston
