Make #peace with #yourself

*Make peace with yourself*

By now, everybody has heard about Stefan Thomas, the guy who only gets two more guesses at his password to recover his wallet containing over $200 Million in bitcoin.

New York Times reported on this last year: 'The problem is that Mr. Thomas years ago lost the paper where he wrote down the password for his IronKey, which gives users 10 guesses before it seizes up and encrypts its contents forever. He has since tried eight of his most commonly used password formulations — to no avail.'

"I would just lay in bed and think about it," Mr. Thomas said. "Then I would go to the computer with some new strategy, and it wouldn't work, and I would be desperate again."

It's excruciating just thinking about it.

*Regret can be more painful than loss itself.*

The total value of all Bitcoin stands around $1 Trillion as of today, down from its high of $ 3 Trillion at one time.

So, going by the 20% estimated amount mentioned in the Times article, lost forever due to forgotten passwords etc, an estimated $200 Billion in Bitcoin has been lost maybe not to be retrieved.

That's a big number that could grow considerably when the value of the digital asset increases over time and as additional Bitcoin are mined.

Stefan Thomas says he long ago "made peace" with the reality that he may never gain access to his approx $200 million Bitcoin fortune.

At times, it is best to make peace, rather than lose sleep over it.

We all lose peace over, 'Alas, what could have been, phenomenon' and continuously torture ourselves.

Make peace with yourself and your reality this Sunday and stay blessed forever. The key is to find harmony in what you have.

"Begin with praise and honest appreciation.

Call attention to people's mistakes indirectly.

Talk about your own mistakes before criticizing the other person.

Ask questions instead of giving direct orders...Make the fault easy to correct. Make the other person happy about doing what you suggest."

--- Dale Carnegie

How do you correct a behavior in another that is unwanted at work or at home?

Of course there are many ways to do it, but how do you do it so the other person gets the message and is willing to try your suggestion?

Dale Carnegie knew the answer.

Be gentle with people. Treat others the way you would like to be treated. Follow his advice and you might be very surprised how often the conversation starts and ends on a positive note.

*'True Strength'*

Many years ago, as a young lad, I was trying to move a heavy stone.

After much huffing & puffing and all my best efforts, I couldn't budge it.

I remember my father, passing by, stopped to watch my effort.
Finally he said to me, "Are you using all your strength for this?"

Yes Iam,I cried exasperated.

"No", my father said calmly. You are not using all your strength.
Your real strength lies in your family & friends.
Have you asked them to help you?

And then the wisdom dawned on me.
Real strength is to seek help & give help.

In life and in business, we rely on each other to be responsible for individual tasks that benefit everyone. People sometimes forget how much interdependence there really is in this world and in a successful business.

Learn the art of asking for help to empower and motivate others, and you will have learnt a very powerful management strategy.

Use your real strength, seek help wherever required & Give help to whomever & whenever required & stay blessed forever

#Reason, #Season and a #Lifetime - Why Do People Come Into Our Lives?*

*Reason, Season and a Lifetime - Why Do People Come Into Our Lives?*

People always come into your life for a reason, a season and a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, or to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or even spiritually. They may seem like a godsend to you, and they are. They are there for a reason, you need them to be.

Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die, Sometimes they just walk away.
Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on.

When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season. And like Spring turns to Summer and Summer to Fall, the season eventually ends.

LIFETIME, relationships teach you a lifetime of lessons; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people (anyway);, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas in your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant. Thank you for being part of my life...

#Time #Circumstances

*You can be with someone everyday and still not know who they really are, until you are put in a situation where hard decisions have to be made.*

*Time doesn't define where you stand in a person's life,*
