Let us know who we are. Ask yourself, “Who am I? What am I thinking?” You won’t get your answer just at this moment. Take your time and think for an answer.
We feel very easy to speak about others but we feel very difficult to speak about ourselves. It is better to know ourselves first before we speak to others. Not knowing ourselves creates misunderstanding. Misunderstanding creates misery, sad and leads to no solution or bad solution. All is about our brain.
All activities depend on our brain. If one says according to you, you will be fine, good and one who do not do according to you, you won’t be fine. When two persons are placed in the same environment, the knowledge that they receive will be different because their brains are different, their thinking is different. Everybody has its own objective.
When a man asked Swami Vivekananda, “what is the reason for misunderstanding?” Swami Vivekananda replied, “The reason is: we see people as we are. Not as they are!”
“The greatest mistake we humans make in our relationships; we listen half, understand quarter, think zero, and react double.”
Our Brain has two hemispheres – left brain and right brain. Left brain controls the right part of our body and right brain controls the left part of our body. Every time there is the communication between the halves of the brain via corpus callosum. There are lots of people who are dominated by left brain and lots of people who are dominated by right brain. But there are less number of people who has balanced between the two halves of our brain.
Left brain is responsible for numbers, money, facts and figures, neat, planned, time conscious, etc. They always work according to the plan. They have restrictions. For such kind of people, they always have this in their minds that if this occurs…., what will happen….? Because of this, they cannot enjoy their life fully. They are bound inside a fix boundary. If somebody tries to lose them or they do not have any words to say, then that person will work, search the relevant data to defeat the other guy who makes him a loser.
On the other hand Right brain is responsible for non-verbal, reading emotions, expressing emotions, imaginative, non-linear, emotional, music/art/poetry/touching, uplifting, creative, etc. Those people who are dominated by right brain are creative and very emotional. They can understand people easily and they enjoy their life fully. They do not have any tension for anything. They do not have rules. We can see the happiness on their faces. They are friendly and they know how to work with other people.
To lead a better life and be a successful person, we need to develop our brain to be balanced between the two halves of the brain. We need energy, strength to do and “I” is the only person who is going to do this. We should teach our brain to think in both ways. Besides we cannot live alone, we have to live together so we need to understand people, we need to listen to them, and we cannot stay in our own objectives always. We should be flexible. We are happy when others response according to us. A single word can break a relationship and a single word can bind a relationship tightly. We have to think before we do. If you have done something wrong, be brave to say SORRY for your mistake. This will make your relationship better.
- The Wrong Person in the Wrong Place = Regression
- The Wrong Person in the Right Place = Frustration
- The Right Person in the Wrong Place = Confusion
- The Right Person in the Right Place = Progression
- The Right People in the Right Places = Multiplication
So now, it’s your turn to change yourself to a better one.
