Desiderata and Your Online Business
I have thought about this for some days now and thought maybe there is a message in this that someone can benefit one of our readers. (Just thinking of this give me benefits often.) I am going to share just the beginning and suggests strongly that you look this up and red the rest.
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Just the very first line puts me at peace when I am facing rough seas!
DESIDERATA AND YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS
Remember the first line and go about your online business with a sense of calm. Do not compare yourself with others as you may become vain or bitter. The ego is a terrible beast to feed and care for. When the ego gets stepped on, there is no telling where it will take you.
Everyone has their story. Some may be great but remember you too have your story. The other day, someone that had been homeless and living on the street called a radio station. They had been panhandling to be able to eat. Someone changed their life. What they did was simple. All they did that was different than anyone else that gave them money was to talk to them. This made all the difference in the World!
I should place the entire poem here for you to read but I desire you take the step to find it yourself ad refer to it often. Let it be a beacon for your steps you are about to take with your online business.
I will include these lines from the poem as well:
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
With this in mind, go forth and build your online businesses not for yourself but for the purpose of fulfilling the lives of others. You will be well rewarded.
