Ten Secrets to be a Better Person

Filed under: Renungan — mrtosa @ 14:23

The first secret – the power of thought.

Love begins with our thoughts.
We become what we think about.
Loving thoughts create loving experiences and loving relationships.
Affirmations can change our beliefs and thoughts about others and ourselves.
If we want to love someone, we need to consider his or her needs and
desires. Thinking about your ideal partner will help you recognize her when
you meet her.

The second secret – the power of respect.

You cannot love anyone or anything unless you first respect them. The first
person you need to respect is yourself. To begin to gain self-respect, ask
yourself. What do I respect about myself? To gain respect for others, even
those you may dislike, ask yourself. What do I respect about them?

The third secret – the power of giving.

If you want to receive love, all you have to do is give it!
The more love you give, the more you will receive.
To love is to give of yourself, freely and unconditionally. Practice random
acts of kindness. Before committing to a relationship ask not what the other
person will be able to give to you, but rather what will you be able to give
them. The secret formula of a happy, lifelong, loving relationship is to
always focus on what you can give instead of what you can take.

The fourth secret – the power of friendship.

To find a true love, you must first find a true friend.
Love does not consist of gazing into each other’s eyes, but rather looking
outward together in the same direction. To love someone completely you must
love him or her for who they are and not what they look like. Friendship is
the soil through which love’s seeds grow. If you want to bring love into a
relationship, you must first bring friendship.

The fifth secret – the power of touch.

Touch is one of the most powerful expressions of love, breaking down
barriers and bonding relationships. Touch changes our physical and emotional
states and makes us more receptive to love.

The sixth secret – the power of letting go.

If you love something, let it free. If it comes back to you, it’s yours, if
it doesn’t, it never was. Even in a loving relationship, people need their
own space. If we want to learn to love, we must first learn to forgive and
let go of past hurts and grievances. Love means letting go of our fears,
prejudices, egos and conditions. Today I let go of all my fears, the past
has no power over me – today is the beginning of a new life.

The seventh secret – the power of communication.

When we learn to communicate openly and honestly, life changes. To love
someone is to communicate with them. Let the people you love know that you
love them and appreciate them. Never be afraid to say those three magic
words: I Love You. Never let an opportunity pass to praise someone. Always
leave someone you love with a loving word – it could be the last time you
see him or her. If you were about to die but could make telephone calls to
the people you loved, who would you call, what would you say and…why are
you waiting?

The eighth secret – the power of commitment.

If you want to have love in abundance, you must be committed to it, and that
commitment will be reflected in your thoughts and actions. Commitment is the
true test of love. If you want to have loving relationships, you must be
committed to loving relationships. When you are committed to someone or
something, quitting is never an option. Commitment distinguishes a fragile
relationship from a strong one.

The ninth secret – the power of passion.

Passion ignites love and keeps it alive.
Lasting passion does not come through physical attraction alone; it comes
from deep commitment, enthusiasm, interest and excitement. Passion can be
recreated by recreating past experiences. When you felt passionate
spontaneity and surprises produce passion. The Essence of love and happiness
are the same; all we need to do is to live each day with passion.

The tenth secret – the power of trust.

Trust is essential in all loving relationships.
Without it one person becomes suspicious, anxious and fearful and the other
person feels trapped and emotionally suffocated. You cannot love someone
completely unless you trust him or her completely. Act as if your
relationship with the person you love will never end. One of the ways you
can tell whether a person is right for you is to ask yourself. Do I trust
them completely and unreservedly? If the answer is no, think carefully
before making a commitment.
