The Three R’s

poison

“Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.”

~ Jack Canfield ~

 

There’s a negative process of thinking and acting that can be the downfall of even the best relationships.

The process we’re talking about occurs in 3 stages, and we call it The Three R’s.

First stage: RESENTMENT.

Resentment can occur so fast you may not even realize it… Someone breaks their word to you, another driver cuts you off on the freeway, or anytime a situation isn’t the way you think it should be.

Second stage: RESISTANCE.

Resistance is happening when you begin cutting off communication… or to put it another way, it’s when you start to put up your walls.

Resistance can be even more subtle too. It may be when you hold back, or when you don’t give your all to a situation.

Have you ever heard the phrase “what you resist persists”? Think about it. When has digging your heels in gotten you the results you were after?

Third stage: REVENGE.

Take a moment and bring to mind a time in your life where you took revenge. What happened to bring you to this stage of the process? Did taking revenge on someone else bring you peace? Afterwards, did you feel better or did you end up causing harm?

When you take revenge on someone else, The Three R’s will usually then begin in the other person! It’s a cycle with no end… until YOU CHOOSE to end it.

Consider yourself challenged.

The next time you find yourself feeling resentment, take a moment… Do something to interrupt the process. Take a breath. Understanding the Three R’s, you now have an opportunity to DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

Put this into practice starting now and you could start to see positive results in your life.

Perhaps you’ve heard a saying like:What you put out, you get back” or “what goes around comes around”… what these don’t say is that it doesn’t necessarily come back from the same source…

Sometimes we hold the most resentment against ourselves… so what’s the solution?

The process of The Three R’s often hurts you more than the person you’re feeling resentment towards… the answer is forgiveness. Forgiveness for them, AND for you.

PSI Seminars facilitator Courtland Warren talks about Personal Power

Personal Power

The key to happier, more fulfilling and wealthy life experiences lies is within this ideal of personal power. But what is personal power? Personal power is the ability to cause or prevent an action in your own life. Therefore, you are only powerless when you cannot act.

On last night’s PSI Teleseminar, we joined Courtland Warren to explore the meaning of personal power. We looked at how to determine when you have it, and when you don’t. From there, we examined the four key mindsets that can help you achieve personal power:

Great Personal Integrity – Do what you say you are going to do, keep your word, especially to yourself.

High Social and Moral Purpose – Know that you are here for a reason and make decisions that are in alignment with your life’s purpose being fulfilled.

Understand That Nothing is Missing – Recognize that you have everything you need within yourself to transform your life.

Think Independently – Your greatest tool is to be able to think independently of your current circumstance, to be able to picture your desired outcome and create something different.

Live your life under the context that life is not happening to you, but for you. As Courtland reminds us, “understand that your ability to cause or to prevent an action from happening in your life is what personal power is. It is within you.”

If you missed all or part of the call, or if you just want to listen to it again, the replay is now available on iTunes and at PSISeminarsPodcast.com where you’ll also find archives of the past teleseminars.

Do you have questions about the material on the call? Would you like to talk with fellow grads, staffers and instructors about how to apply the concepts in your life? Then we’d love to have you join us on Facebook and continue the conversation. Facebook.com/PSISeminars

Leadership Through Responsibility

A “leader” can simply be defined as someone who takes responsibility for his or her thoughts, actions, and results. While it sounds simple, this concept has the profound power to liberate you from patterns of thinking that don’t serve you and from letting circumstances or the will of others dictate your outcome.

Being a leader is not always easy, yet when you experience the fulfillment of knowing you created the results in your life and have the power to change them, being a leader is totally worth it!

On this episode of the PSI Seminars Podcast, we explore what it takes to be a leader, both of self and of others; why every great leader is first a great follower; and what traits are consistent among effective leaders that could support you in living a more purposeful and peaceful life.
