Part of wellness is connecting with others.
1. Saving People from Insanity
“But he [the doctor] did say that many people who go insane find in insanity a feeling of importance that they were unable to achieve in the world of reality.”
“I have a patient right now whose marriage proved to be a tragedy. She wanted love, sexual gratification, children and social prestige, but life blasted all her hopes. Her husband didn’t love her. He refused even to eat with her and forced her to serve his meals in his room upstairs. She had no children, no social standing. She went insane; and, in her imagination, she divorced her husband and resumed her maiden name. She now believes she has married into English aristocracy, and she insists on being called Lady Smith. And as for children, she imagines now that she has had a new child every night. Each time I call on her she says: ‘Doctor, I had a baby last night.'”
“Tragic? Oh, I don’t know…If I could stretch out my hand and restore her sanity, I wouldn’t do it. She’s much happier as she is.”
“If some people are so hungry for a feeling of importance that they ACTUALLY GO INSANE TO GET IT, imagine what MIRACLE you and I can achieve by giving people honest appreciation this side of insanity.”
2. Switching From a Fault to Praise Mindset
“The greatest asset I possess, and the way to develop the best that is in a person is by APPRECIATION and ENCOURAGEMENT. There is nothing else that so kills the ambitions of a person as criticisms from superiors. I NEVER CRITICIZE ANYONE. I believe in giving a person incentive to work. So I AM ANXIOUS TO PRAISE BUT LOATH TO FIND FAULT. If I like anything, I am hearty in my approbation and lavish in my praise.” -Charles Schwab
But, the average person doesn’t praise! HECK NO.
What do we do instead? Complain and criticize. If something is amazingly done, nothing is said at all….just CRICKETS!
I wish I can say I have NEVER CRITICIZED and was more like Charles Schwab, but you know what?
Even though, I can’t change the past and how I was before.
I can change NOW :)
I WILL be a better person, a better being and switch my values to make it rain with praises, but blind to faults. This is because every moment only happens once, & never more. Be a better being right now. Like, NOW NOW!
Tweet it up, if you agree and want to change your values as well!
Last, but not least. I had to end with Dale’s favorite quote on this topic that he read every day.
“I shall pass this way but once; any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
I swear, if you start truly doing this, you’ll be living a FULL-FILLED life and live beyond happiness.
Another crazy bonus, you’ll start to get the body you desire too! No joke! Because when you’re living from your true self, in happiness, pretty much all the crazy stress is gone and you’re able to relax in your body naturally. You automatically and easily get the body you desire with out the BS! It’s pretty much epic awesome.
