Paul Brunton – O lstivosti a prohnanosti ega

Každý člověk je ukřižován svým vlastním egem. Jsme oddáni svému vlastnímu ,,já” zcela přirozeně a nevyhnutelně. Naše ego se chová, jakoby bylo jediným skutečným jástvím člověka. Pokud se budeme zkoumat, tak uvidíme, jak naše ego vede mnoho schopností nebo se mezi nimi ukrývá, prosazuje nebo klame. Pro nároky ega neexistuje žádné omezení. Dnes se bude vydávat za skromného žáka, ale zítra za velekněze. Přitom lže sobě, lže člověku, který se s ním ztotožňuje. Skrývá před námi nízké motivy, které podněcují naše činy.

You really cannot please anyone. You are only going to get exhausted and burnt out in the process. Yet, in a world where everyone wants to get a piece of you, it is very difficult to say no to a lot of things. But at the end of the day, what does it do to your self-esteem and personality? We tend to dress, talk and pursue our goals based on what is the conventional and what is termed to be the “popular opinion.” And thus we miss out on doing the one thing that makes us unique.

8 Signs You Have A Strong Personality That Might Scare Some People

When people encounter someone with a strong personality, they don’t understand the kind of person they are dealing with.

Some people think you dominate. Some just think you are rude. But none of these are the truth. These words actually do not reflect your personality at all. In fact, strong people are often kittens on the inside. It’s just that people with domineering personalities just give you a bad rep.

Strong people do not have to win, they just are not willing to let other people walk all over them on the outside.

Sure, some people might be afraid of you. But that is only because they do not understand how you can be so comfortable with yourself that you do not need anyone else to validate you.

Here are eight signs that you have a strong personality that might scare some people. Continue reading “8 Signs You Have A Strong Personality That Might Scare Some People”

Poslední slova Steva Jobse

Došel jsem až na vrchol úspěchu ve světě byznysu. V očích druhých je můj život nejspíš ztělesněním úspěchu. Nicméně mimo práce mám jen málo radosti. Na konci je bohatství jen aspektem života, kterému jsem přivykl.

Bohatství, jež jsem vyhrál v mém životě si nemůžu vzít s sebou.

Když teď ležím na nemocniční posteli a promítám si celý svůj život, uvědomil jsem si, že všechno to uznání a bohatství, na kterém jsem si tolik zakládal, zbledlo a ztratilo význam tváří v tvář blížící se smrti. Continue reading “Poslední slova Steva Jobse”
