How Continuously Dwelling On Negative Emotions Might Prevent You From Getting Promoted.

Published

on

Negative states of mind are natural and unavoidable because they have a purpose. For instance, pessimism enables you to take precautions while anxiety reminds you that you are not living in the present moment.

Therefore, negative emotions are always there to give us a certain message, and for that reason, we must never ignore them.

However, we are not supposed to succumb to negative emotions. Dwelling on negative emotions has negative effects, especially at the workplace.

When you succumb to negative emotions, they show in your outer life. What is in the inside will eventually show up on the outside. If you often succumb to negative emotions such as jealousy, anger, sadness, and hate, your boss will detect these emotions, and trust me, he won’t risk putting you in a leadership position because he’ll fear that you won’t be able to manage the position.

Companies often promote to leadership positions, those who can work with a team, inspire their subordinates, and make effective decisions. They know that a person full of hate, fear, depression, or worry cannot do such things.

Assume you are the owner of a huge company, and you want it to be profitable. Will you risk giving the managerial position to a sad, angry, and fearful employee? I guess no, because you’ll need a team player, or an enthusiastic and confident person, who can direct and work with his subordinates. For that reason, you’ll never risk giving such a demanding position to a person who always succumbs to negative emotions, no matter how hard he or she works.

Sometimes we wonder why we miss a promotion despite our hard work, experience, and academic qualifications. It’s because we display emotions that show our seniors that we are unsuitable for a leadership position.

Therefore, don’t carry your personal issues to your workplace. The boss doesn’t care if your spouse cheated on you. He doesn’t care if your dog, goldfish, or lizard died. He only cares about his profits and those who have the ability to increase them.

That being said, add enthusiasm, joyfulness, vigor, and passion to your hard work, years of experience, and academic qualifications, and the boss will not fail you. Assume you also own the company, be happy while working, and don’t let your personal issues get in the way of climbing the corporate ladder.

Lastly, assume you are an employer and be the employee that you would love to promote.

How We’ve Let God Down

Published

How We've Let God Down

God created us with the ability to self-reflect. We are the only creatures that can meditate on the infinite miracles that enable us to thrive on this planet.

However, instead of doing that, we constantly worry and stress over non-sense. We create a superficial reality that continuously stresses us for no reason.

As well, we never pause and appreciate the magical present moment and the mysteries of the universe because we are always anxious about useless things. We are addicted to worrying about our social status, and we love spending our time comparing ourselves to others.

Besides, we never meditate on the fact that we are magnificent beings that carry the spirit of God within us, and we seldom take time to smell flowers, watch the sun, the birds, and do other things that remind us of the existence of a magnificent spirit whose primary duty is to ensure that all creatures thrive on planet earth. In other words, most of us have lost the sense of wonder since we never look at God’s creation in awe and take time to appreciate it.

Moreover, we’ve let ourselves become slaves of a system created by tyrants whose only aim is to gain by overexploiting us. Instead of trying to get out of this system by employing ourselves and striving for enlightenment, we’ve let the tyrants govern our minds.

Besides, instead of fighting for the survival of planet earth, we’ve let these tyrants destroy the planet’s natural resources. Our forests are dying, many animals are becoming extinct, our air and water are getting polluted, but we don’t care because we are busy chasing paper, forgetting that money is useless without air, water, and other natural resources.

We’ve also descended into the egoic-consciousness, which makes us perceive ourselves as separate individuals whose main duty is to strive to be richer than others. For this reason, instead of loving each other unconditionally, we continuously judge each other and allow thoughts of envy, malice, and hate to dwell in our minds.

On top of that, we’ve forgotten that human beings are greater than the gods (spiritual entities, e.g angels, elementals, ghosts, etc) because we can attain both the human and god-consciousness. The gods can only attain the God-consciousness since attaining human consciousness is impossible to them.  However, we can transcend our human-consciousness by ascending to God-consciousness through spiritual growth, but we are unaware of this blessing because we’ve ignored the spiritual teachings handed down to us by the ancient masters.

Anyway, I don’t think God created us to live this way. I believe the factors that modern society promotes are responsible for this lifestyle that disappoints our Creator. We must thus rise above the modern illusory perception of life and strive to live the way we were designed to live because if we do so, we’ll live a life that delights our Lord God the Creator.

PEACE BE WITH YOU

Modern Society and the Illusion of a Perfect Life

Modern Society and the Illusion of a Perfect Life

‘Man’s relentless pursuit of perfection in its countless different guises is the greatest cause of unhappiness in the world. Man mostly postpones his pleasures in life, suspends it until such time as he has the perfect career, the perfect home, or the perfect bank balance.’ – Theun Mares, Return of the Warriors

The media has overly promoted the illusion of a perfect life since it portrays celebrities as individuals with beautiful spouses, families, cars, and houses. As well, most social media users only post the good part of their lives hence making us believe in the illusion of a perfect life.

This illusion has resulted in us postponing happiness since we believe we’ll only be happy when we get a perfect relationship, body, house, job, etc. It makes us fail to appreciate our possessions and relationships because we feel they aren’t perfect. In other words, this illusion results in us failing to appreciate the gift of life as it makes us stress over the imperfect parts of our lives.

Moreover, the illusion of a perfect life makes us feel shameful when facing difficulties hence resulting in us hiding our difficulties. For this reason, we avoid asking for support during difficulties, and we try to deal with them alone hence intensifying their mental side-effects.

As well, the idea of a perfect life has intensified the fear of failure within us because it leads to the belief that failure is a sign of imperfection. We thus avoid chasing our dreams or pursuing anything that can lead to failure because we don’t want to be associated with failure.

Furthermore, believing in the possibility of a perfect life has led to feelings of inadequacy. We feel we aren’t enough, and we believe we are not important because we don’t have a perfect life.

Little do we know that no one lives a perfect life since everybody experiences hardships and tragedies. Besides, we are unaware that rich people, celebrities, and many other people we believe are living a perfect life usually have several aspects of their lives that are imperfect. Some of these folks have committed suicide because they still felt their life was imperfect despite achieving all their goals.

For this reason, I believe anybody who doesn’t find his life perfect today, will never find it perfect in the future, no matter what she achieves because there will always be a segment of her life that will be imperfect. I, therefore, think we should start appreciating our lives and realize that life is perfect the way it is.

Also, we should know that the imperfect parts of our lives are important because they stimulate personal development, and we must awaken to the fact that most of us will never see the need for working hard or improving our lives if everything was perfect.

Lastly, we should discard the illusion of perfection and realize that everything in our life, whether perfect or not, presents an opportunity for progress.

END.
