Get to know eachother
Rush, rush, rush! That is exactly what we all seem to do these days. We are always rushing and worrying about getting stuff done.
Regrettably, in the rush to succeed, sometimes other men and women become things or inanimate objects to us, rather than the wondrous, inspiring, and fascinating human stories that they truly are. We’re really missing out on the good things in life once we don’t allow ourselves to fully understand people.
Let’s take a moment to take into account the people in our own life. Let’s pause and spend the next moment wisely by thinking about our family, our friends, our classmates, our co-workers, our teammates, and anybody else we come into contact with on a daily basis. How well do we really know all these interesting people? Is our knowledge of them only a surface understanding, or do we really deeply know all these people? Do we know what makes them tick? Do we know their favourite foods or favorite places to go? Just how much do we actually know about their favourite pastime, or hobby? You see, all of us think we know the people in our lives, but do we really?
Many of us are so caught up in our own story of success and/or achievement that we rarely ever get an opportunity to dive deeply into someone else’s story. But, however, we should take some time to dive deeply into someone else’s life as it’s well worth the time and effort. In addition, there are so many fascinating stories out there that we are missing. Let’s try not to miss any more of these.
Now adolescents, go learn, lead, and lay the way to a better world for all of us. Let’s make sure that we slow down a little bit, pay attention, and get to deeply understand other people because it truly is worth it. And once more, thanks in advance for all that you do, and all that you will do…
