[Quote No.50144] Need Area: Mind > Evolve
"[Difficulties help us learn and grow:] ...when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled... propelled by our discomfort... we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different [better] ways or truer answers [and, through that search and the answers we find, realise more of our best potential]." - M. Scott Peck

[Quote No.50439] Need Area: Mind > Evolve
"[Individualism, self-worth and self esteem:] I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it -- I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know -- but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me. However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me. I own me, and therefore, I can engineer [and evolve] me. I am me, and I am Okay." - Virginia Satir

I made many sensible comments and added to the pleasure of the table conversation.]" - Dr Sonya Rhodes

[Quote No.50782] Need Area: Mind > Evolve
"Picture Your Ideal Self: Work on improving yourself, instead of wasting time feeling sorry that you are not the way you would like. Describe your ideal self: What type of person do you really want to be? Be as specific as possible. Don't use vague terms like 'being a kind person, gaining lots of knowledge, and being successful.' With these terms you will not have a clear criteria to determine if you have reached the goals. If, for example, you wish to improve in doing kindness, clarify the specific acts of kindness you plan to do, and how often. Then, once you have a picture of your ideal self, you can plan ways to travel the path leading to that ideal." - Rabbi Zelig Pliskin

"Every work that we do, every movement of the body, every thought that we think, leaves such an impression on the mind-stuff, and even when such impressions are not obvious on the surface, they are sufficiently strong to work beneath the surface, subconsciously. What we are every moment is determined by the sum total of these impressions on the mind... This is really what is meant by character; each man's character is determined by the sum total of these impressions. " - Swami Vivekananda

[Quote No.51539] Need Area: Mind > Evolve
"[A story - with a message about struggling helping us to grow:] Butterfly - A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further. So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings. The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time. Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly. What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were Nature's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon. Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives in order to grow to our full potential!" - Unknown

[Quote No.51609] Need Area: Mind > Evolve
"[A story - with a message about coping with adversity and using your challenges, to make you stronger and better:] Are you Potatoes, Eggs, or Ground Coffee Beans? - Once upon a time, a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn't know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed. Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot, and ground coffee beans in the third pot. He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. After twenty minutes, he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup. Turning to her, he asked, ‘Daughter, what do you see?’ ‘Potatoes, eggs, and coffee,’ she hastily replied. ‘Look closer’, he said, ‘and touched the potatoes’. She did and noted that they were soft. He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face. ‘Father, what does this mean?’ she asked. He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs, and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity, the boiling water. However, each one reacted differently. The potato went in strong, hard and unrelenting, but in boiling water it became soft and weak. The egg was fragile with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg became hard. However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new. ‘Which are you?’ he asked his daughter. ‘When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean?’ In life, things happen around us and things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is what happens within us. [How do we evolve?]" - Unknown

"[Freedom and individualism are important for the individual and society:] What humans can be, they must be. They must be true to their own nature. This need we may call self-actualization. ...He becomes in these episodes more truly himself, more perfectly actualizing his potentialities, closer to the core of his Being, more fully human!" - Abraham Maslow
(1908 – 1970), a highly respected American professor of psychology at Brandeis University, Brooklyn College, New School for Social Research and Columbia University, famous for creating 'Maslow's hierarchy of needs'.

"[A poem:] -

'Lessons from an Oyster'

There once was an oyster,
Whose story I tell,
Who found that some sand,
Had got into his shell.

It was only a grain,
But it gave him great pain.
For oysters have feelings,
Although they are so plain.

Now, did he berate,
The harsh workings of fate,
That had brought him,
To such a deplorable state?

Did he curse at the government,
Cry for election,
And claim that the sea should,
Have given him protection?

'No,' he said to himself,
As he lay on a shell,
Since I cannot remove it,
I shall try to improve it.

Now the years have rolled around,
As the years always do,
And he came to his ultimate,
Destiny ­stew.

And the small grain of sand,
That had bothered him so,
Was a beautiful pearl,
All richly aglow.

Now the tale has a moral,
For isn't it grand,
What an oyster can do,
With a morsel of sand?

What couldn't we do,
If we'd only begin,
With some of the things,
That get under our skin.

"[A story - with a message about not dwelling on past mistakes but rather spending your time focusing on what you learnt and how that has made you better and more able to make the most of all the opportunities coming to you in the future:] - Arthur Gordon is a favorite writer of mine. Once he came to New York to interview Dr. Blanton, a co-founder of the American Foundation for Religion and Psychiatry. Mr. Gordon sat in a restaurant waiting for the esteemed psychiatrist to arrive. As he waited, his mind went back over his life. By the time Mr. Blanton arrived, Mr. Gordon was sitting there with a frown and a very sad look on his face. 'What's the matter, Arthur?' 'Oh,' the writer replied, 'I've just been sitting here thinking about all the 'if's in my life.' Dr. Blanton suggested, 'Let's drive over to my office after lunch; I want you to hear something.' Later in his office, Dr. Blanton put on a tape and said, 'I'm going to let you listen to three different people; they're all patients of mine and they are mentally ill. Listen carefully.' For one hour the great author listened. When the tape was finished , Dr. Blanton asked, 'Tell me what single trait all these people had in common.' Arthur Gordon thought a moment and then answered, 'I can't think of anything.' 'Then I'll tell you,' the psychiatrist said. 'All of them kept repeating the phrase, 'If only...if only...if only.' These words cause mental sickness! They are like poison. These people must learn to say, 'Next time...next time...next time.' These words point to the future, to a new day, to healing and health!' [Arthur Gordon, later in a book called 'A Touch of Wonder' he wrote, 'The trouble with 'if only' is that it doesn't change anything. It keeps the person facing the wrong way – backward instead of forward. It wastes time. ...You're thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn't at all. Failure is a teacher – a harsh one, perhaps, but the best. You say you have a desk full of rejected manuscripts? That's great! Every one of those manuscripts was rejected for a reason. Have you pulled them to pieces looking for that reason? You've got to put failure to work for you. That's where you'll find success. On the far side of failure.']" - Unknown

"[A story - with a message about keeping youthful while growing older: - Growing Older - When the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was well along in years, his hair was white but he was still a vigorous man. Someone asked him why this was so. The poet pointed to an apple tree in bloom and said...] That tree is very old, but I never saw prettier blossoms on it than it now bears. That tree grows new wood each year. Like that apple tree, I try to grow a little new wood each year.' " - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Fr. Brian Cavanaugh, a Franciscan Friar, T.O.R.(Third Order Franciscan), wrote of this in his book, 'The Sower's Seeds'.

"[A story - with a message about self-development.] - Daddy Doesn't Want to Play with Me! - Once there was a little boy who wanted his dad to teach him how to play catch. One sunny day the little boy's father was sitting on the couch, drinking a beer, while watching a baseball game. The boy rushed into the house exclaiming ‘Daddy, daddy, daddy, show me how to play catch!’ The father, blankly starring at the television screen, replied ‘ In a little while son, let me finish watching this inning, come back in five minutes.’ ‘Okay daddy’ said the boy and ran out of the room. Five minutes later the boy returned screaming ‘Daddy, let's go, let's play some catch now!’ The father turned to the boy and said hold on son the inning is not quite over come back in five more minutes. ‘Okay, daddy’ said the boy as he shuffled out the room. Five minutes later the boy returned ball and glove in hand eagerly awaiting for his father to play some catch. ‘Daddy, lets go, I want to be Ken Griffey Jr.!’ shouted the boy. By this time, the father had cracked open another cold one and another inning was taking place. Frustrated by the boy's constant hindrances, the dad scanned the room. While scanning the room the father notice a magazine underneath the coffee table. On the cover of the magazine was a large picture of the world. The father, who was angered & annoyed, began tearing the magazine cover in to small pieces. After a few moments, of shredding up the magazine cover, the father placed the torn pieces on the magazine. Then, the father turned to his boy and said ‘Son, once you put this picture of the world back together we can play catch, but do not interrupt me again until you are done!’ Apprehensively, the boy took the magazine and sulked into his room. As he sobbed ‘Okay, daddy I won't’. A few moments later the boy returned and said, ‘I'm done daddy can we play catch now?’ Stunned, the father glanced towards his child, and there in his small hands laid the magazine with the world pieced perfectly together. Amazed, the dad asked his child how he put the world together so quickly. ‘It was simple’ stated the boy ‘On the back of the world was a picture of a person, and once I put the person together that's when their world came together.’ " - Unknown
