Overall this book is a great read for anyone willing to learn how to exchange more positive interactions in their life. Some strengths of the read are that it helps give an insight on someone 's personal actions and how they might affect others. Also, the book comes with a complete guide on how to apply what was said directly to the workplace. One weakness of the book was that it was cheesy and felt as if it dragged on at times. Even though it was helpful and informative, a lot of concepts and ideas were repeated constantly.
Opportunity brings desires and expectations in people’s life. However, never-ending opportunities or choices not only bring frustration in people’s lives but also make them saddened for prolong period. In “The Paradox of Choice” by Barry Schwartz argue that more is less, for to have more doesn’t mean it will meet people expectations. Every little thing is developing so vastly in today’s time, and people are running behind to achieve it. However, they don’t understand the fact that they are putting themselves in a pressure, where they have to make a decision.
Being terrified is the thing that keeps hope out of our lives. It is important to not be scared because if we are, then we will have no hope in winning and we will not win. If we just believe that we can win and not give up then we will have our victory. We could also get someone to come and help out in the war. Many people don’t want to work because they are too sick.
Although the actuality of failure is so terrifying, many good features result from it. Failure is an obstacle in life that builds character, motivates people, and distinguishes great individuals from everyone else. The character that comes out of failure is an important aspect of what it means to fail. When people fail it causes them to see the world for what it really is and where they stand. This is an event that all people will run into at some point or another.
Not simply with the person who turned their back on you, but with everyone. We question whether or not everybody is going to hurt us and the more it happens, the less we trust. I have had friends in the past who have hurt me and it took everything in me to forgive them. Humankind is sensitive and we do not have an issue with building a barrier around ourselves that only gets sturdier the more we are hurt. Love and hate are two extremely strong and dangerous emotions because it is too easy to hate the ones we love.
The Ultimate Goal Humans are ambitious creatures always evaluating their living standards and looking for better situations. Despite the differences in their sects, their ethnicity, their principles, their goals and their intentions, they all have one ultimate aspiration. Perhaps what haunts them the most is the strive for happiness. However, they all seem to ignore the importance of life satisfaction in their quest for happiness. In consequence, time is lost and millions of dollars are wasted as people go to extreme measures, sometimes risking their own security to pursue happiness, and yet most of them never achieve it.
Michelangelo, the great Renaissance artist, once said, “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too like, and achieving our mark.” This quote means that most people have a greater fear in succeeding at an easy task than failing at a more challenging one. This is very true in the opinion of many. Most individuals want challenge, and want to avoid taking the easy way out. When the latter happens, they may feel ashamed. There is more danger is accomplishing a simple task than failing at a great one because most people have already experienced failure at something big, have felt guilt about aiming for a low goal, and know that doing the simpler thing will show a lack of
Funding from lobbyists and companies matter more to the government than the children and teachers losing their lives in schools, or our veterans losing their lives overseas over wars that we didn’t sign up for. In fact, even freedom of speech doesn’t seem to be so free after all. Because despite the fact that you are supposed to speak your mind freely, a lot of us are afraid of how the public might perceive it. If majority doesn’t like the sound of your declaration, you are easily subjected to getting bullied, fired from a job and getting ousted from a position, or be an outcast from a community you once called your home. Sometimes I feel as though freedom is overrated.

Therefore, admit something that makes you not perfect and say yourself “It is enough” “I am a good person.” It may be difficult to avow their foible because they were perfectionists. However, .remembering that perfectness is not at all and excessive perfection hurt them and the people in their life will help them to escape from perfectionism. Everyone live with several stressful factors.
W feel when pride overcomes our life, we believe we’re always right and everyone is wrong, and it’s hard to keep relationships with people because no one wants to be with someone that thinks they know everything. When we have to much pride, then it disconnects us from everyone because they think they have to achieve greatness and everyone is getting in there way. Also, our pride can take over someone life as well, because we could be ashamed of them and we want to them to achieve greatness, like in the short story, “ The Scarlet Ibis” the older brother was gifted with a younger brother that was handicapped, and when Doodle tout himself to crawl then, the older brother was determined to teach him how to walk, because the older brother was ashamed to be related to a kid that was handicapped and he pushed Doodle to the point to where to couldn 't handle it anymore. In the article ‘’ Why Pride is Nothing to Be Proud Of” it says, “ Deignity can live inside us regardless of our successes and failures. We don’t have to prove anything to anything to anyone-- or even to ourselves.
