Serenity Prayer

he toughest part of business is dealing with people.

The easiest part of business is… dealing with people!

The joys and pleasure of business is dealing and interacting with humans.
(beautiful thought by Darren Hardy.)

Dealing with people is not always easy. 

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know – it’s me!” — CODA twist on the Serenity Prayer

Remember that we cannot change other people. 
We can only change ourselves. 
We can only change our reaction and perception of other people. QBQ

It takes a lot of inner work.

With time we slowly conquer our inner demons. One level at a time.

Even when we are mostly happy in many areas, there might be that one little area that still trips us up badly.

The paradox of life.

Humans are complicated. WE are complicated.

Constantly working. Conquering level by level.

Ups and downs.

Two steps forward. One step back.

THAT is work, my friend. It never ends. Until the last breath. 

“Just because I know of it – does not free me from it!” — Lou Landau

The IT being whatever you’re dealing with at the time, your shadow, demons, or “the minds infinite capacity for self-deception”.
