We can easily put a person on the moon. We have lost touch with our purpose. as you start this book. fax machines and digital phones so that we can stay connected and yet we live in a time where human beings have never been less connected. We can fire a missile across the world with pinpoint accuracy. And so. We have lost sight of the things that matter the most. but we have trouble walking across the street to meet a new neighbor. but we have trouble keeping a date with our children to go to the library.LEARNING DISCOVER YOUR CALLING« We live in an age when we have forgotten what life is all about. we respectfully ask you: Who will cry when you die? How many lives will you touch while you have the privilege to walk this planet? What impact will your life have on the generations that follow you? And what legacy will you leave behind after you have taken your last breath? 8 . We have lost touch with our humanity. We have e-mail.
³when from our better selves we have too long been parted by the hurrying world. The question is what are you so busy about?´ The importance of silence makes us think about the story of an old lighthouse keeper. Sure. She prayed for some oil so that she could illuminate her home and feed her family. One night. He neglected his primary duty and paid a high price. The next night. how benign is solitude. so are the ants. Again he agreed. you must find the time to be silent on a regular basis. 9 . Many ships ran aground and many lives were lost because the lighthouse keeper forgot to focus on his priority. The man had only a limited amount of oil to keep his beacon lit so that passing ships could avoid the rocky shore. refocus and revitalize your mind. Soon all his oil was gone and his beacon went out. will keep one centered on your highest life priorities and help one avoid the neglect that pervades the lives of so many of us. body and spirit? All of the great wisdom traditions of the world have arrived at the same conclusion: to reconnect with who you really are as a person and to come to know the glory that rests within you.LEARN TO BE SILENT« William Wordsworth sagely observed. the lighthouse keeper was awakened by another banging on his door. The lighthouse keeper also complied with this request and gave him the amount he needed. for even a few minutes a day. a traveler begged for some oil to light his lamp so that he could keep on traveling.´ When was the last time to be silent and still? When was the last time you carved out a chunk of time to enjoy the power of solitude to restore. sick of its business. you are busy. Another night. how gracious. so the lighthouse keeper gave him some of his own. a man who lived close by needed to borrow some of his precious commodity to light his home. of its pleasures tired. Experiencing solitude.
like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. which have helped me greatly when life throws one of its curves my way: « Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. But we always try to remind myself that our character is shaped. Try to love the questions themselves. as human beings. You cannot learn how to play the guitar without hitting a few wrong notes and you will never learn how to sail if you are not willing to tip the boat over a few times. the mistakes you have made and the suffering you have endured.And saying that you don¶t have enough time to be silent on a regular basis is a lot like saying you are too busy driving to stop for gas-eventually it will catch up with you. not through life¶s easiest experiences. I respectfully offer the following words of Rainer Maria Rilke. SEE YOUR TROUBLES AS BLESSINGS SEE YOUR TROUBLES AS BLESSEINGS« ³Who would agree with me that we learn the most from our most difficult experiences?´ Inevitably. Once and for all. It is during life¶s most trying times that we discover who we really are and the fullness of the strength that lies within us. spend so much of our lives focusing on the negative aspects of our most difficult experiences rather than seeing them for what they truly are: our greatest teachers. We have encountered my own share of pain as we have advanced along the path of life. You would not have the wisdom and knowledge you now possess were it not for the setbacks you have faced. It is a question of experiencing everything. We often wonder why we. Do not now look for the answers. If you are currently experiencing challenges of your own. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. Begin to see your troubles as blessings. come to realize that pain is a teacher and failure is the highway to success. At 10 . resolve to transform your stumbling blocks into stepping stones and vow to turn your wounds into wisdom.
some distant day. We all travel different roads to our ultimate destinations.´ I found this reply to be profound. find yourself experiencing the answer. 11 . only lessons. And there really are no problems. without even noticing it. For some of us. there are no real failures in life. There are no true tragedies.present. Remember. LIVE A LIFE« On being asked about the ups and downs of his career. Perhaps you will gradually. you need to live the question. So rather than fight it. movie star Kevin Costner responded with these words. only opportunities waiting to be recognized as solutions by the person of wisdom. only results. why not accept it as the way of life? Why not detach yourself from the outcomes and simply experience every circumstance that enters your life to the fullest? Feel the pain and savor the happiness. the view from the mountaintop is not as breathtaking. ³I¶m living a life. But no one reaches the end without facing some form of adversity. he adopted a neutral stance and simply decided to accept them for what they are: a natural part of the path he is on. the path is rockier than for others. If you have never visited the valleys. Rather than spending his days judging the events and experiences of his life as either good or bad.
In the timeless words of Publilius Syrus. Take the time to study your personal habits and promise to make the necessary changes. we are genetically programmed to resist change and maintain a state of equilibrium. once you get past those first 21 days you will find that staying on course with a new habit will be far easier than you imagined. they will feel uncomfortable. And that is why we have such difficulty adopting and overcoming the gravitational forces that prevent us from moving to higher levels of living. evolved naturally over time as a means by which our ancestors could survive constantly changing conditions. ³powerful indeed is the empire of habit. So ensure that your habits move you forward rather than hold you back. Yet most people give up on creating a positive life change after only the first few days when they experience the stress and pain that is always associated with replacing old behaviors with new ones. they will fit like a second skin. it takes about 21 days to develop a new habit. The quality of your life will be determined in large measures by the nature of your habits. known as homeostasis. As human beings. The condition. But just as a rocket uses more fuel during the first few minutes after lift-off than it does over the days that follow when it will cover more than half a million miles. New habits are much like a new pair of shoes: for the first few days.´ 12 . But if you break them in for about three weeks. The problem is that the mechanism works to keep things as they are even when more favorable possibilities exist.REMEMBER THE RULE OF 21« As we read in the book The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari.
Don¶t let negative thoughts enter it. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self. on your life. Persistence is the mother of personal change. Expect the best.
