Designed Selfishness


For a long time I have believed that each emotion comes with its own chemistry; that is why I decided to be kind, helpful, friendly, funny (I hope), and friends with everyone with whom I come into contact with. Sure, there is a benefit to them that a friendly person comes up to them trying to brighten up their day, and bring them a smile, but it is also good for me. I end up with a small state of heaven around me wherever I go. That also impacts the quality of my life and theirs. One caution is that Designed Selfishness must be built on a genuine love of others, or emotionally, that world will end up collapsing around your feet.

 

 

 

A couple of notes.

 

 

 

When we chose our responses in advance it is easier to follow through to make them real.

 

 

 

You are arguing with someone and the phone rings, it is a stranger, and suddenly the tone of our voice changes. Sure evidence that we have more control over our emotions than we make ourselves believe.

 

 

 

Take control of your emotions, your responses. Don’t let your emotions that control of you.

 

 

 

A mature person takes control of their emotions, and not the other way around. Someone wants to argue with them, you are not beholden to them to argue back. A soft voice turneth away reproach.

 

 

 

Maturity comes first from knowing yourself.

 

 

 

Knowing yourself is the first step in maturity because becoming mature requires that you change your thinking and consequently your actions. To change you must first know from where you are beginning.

 

 

 

If you are looking for the good in life, you are more likely to find it.

About pushinback

Back in 1993, I attended an anti-Nafta rally in Ottawa along with over 110,000 others. But despite the overwhelming opposition to NAFTA, the steamroller rolled on. It was there that I came to understand the one vital thing that I have been preaching ever since. There are so many issues, and so many fighting each issue, we are all spinning our wheels, and wasting our time, talents and energy, because each election, we give the politicians our power and so the deck is stacked against us. I said it that day and I say it with more fervency today. We all have one issue that we share, and we should all stop fighting for our own issues and losing anyways, and we should fight to achieve that one thing that we all share. We Canadians all have to fight to finally get a say between elections. We need to fight to make politicians accountable to us, the people. If there is no accountability, and the people have no say between elections, we have no Democracy. My Blog is written to teach the reader the essential knowledge of freedom and Democracy. Please read, and learn. I am one person, but I leave you my witness that one person is not powerless, only first you must first learn and then act. Let the democratic revolution begin. Kindest regards, Rob McQueen
