PONDER on THIS for Friday, August 31st, 2007 by Sanaya Roman in Living with Joy

“There is a fine line between egotistical and humble. Walking that line brings the expression of power into balance. Do you brag about yourself? Do you go around wanting to tell people when you did something great? Or do you listen to people with an open ear, putting your own accomplishments aside? The tendency to overstate or exaggerate accomplishments can create problems.

Do you find yourself rehearsing what you are going to say to someone about something wonderful you accomplished? There is a difference between coming from confidence and coming from egoism.

If you feel you have done or are doing something great or unusual, you are sending a message to your subconscious telling it that this is not a normal achievement. If you want to bring more great accomplishments into your life, then take them in stride when they happen. (Congratulate yourself, but let it seem as if it is something you do every day.)”

Sanaya Roman, in “Living with Joy”
