There's no point in yelling at people who don't want to listen to self-help advice. Whether they listen to me or not, I understand that I'm not everyone's cup of tea, and that's okay. Some people connect with my message, but others don't, and that's just how it goes. However, if you look beyond the surface and understand my personality, you'll find that I'm conveying the same wisdom as the ancient teachers.
Over the past 37+ years, I've been studying this subject, and much of it is starting to make sense. I'm trying my best to put it into practice, though I'm not perfect. My guiding principles are compassion and non-harm, and I'm constantly striving to stay focused. I admit I may get distracted at times, but I'm working on improving that.
One crucial tool for gaining control over thoughts and the mind is deep breathing. However, arguing with someone who refuses to hear or believe in it is pointless. Not everyone is ready to do the work, and that's okay too. We should let them be where they are, as everyone is on their unique journey.
Judging others only distracts from being a teacher, so I refrain from doing so. Achieving happiness and personal growth isn't easy or quick. It takes time and effort to work on character defects, traumas, emotional scars, behavioral patterns, and more. Sustainable success rarely comes without such inner work.
If you are willing and have a keen mind, you can expedite your progress. The work includes meditation, breathing exercises, a healthy diet, physical health maintenance, therapy, exercise, yoga, writing, and reading books. After acquiring knowledge, the next step is to meditate and integrate these teachings into our lives. True understanding is reflected in positive behavioral changes.
Remember, it's okay to feel stuck; it's part of the process. The key is to keep going and stay committed to your personal growth journey.
