Conflict Resolution

Different Strokes

“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” – Tony Robbins

Hold Up

“Whenever you are about to find fault with someone, ask yourself the following question: ‘What fault of mine most nearly resembles the one I am about to criticize?’” – Marcus Aurelius

Practice Mental Discipline

“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind, he can find the way to enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.” – Buddha

Take Care of It

“Have the conversation. Resolve it. Move forward.” – J.B. Bickerstaff

Jiminy Crickets

“Never act until you have clearly answered the questions: “What happens if I do nothing?” – Robert Brault

Create, Don’t Compete

“You were placed on this earth to create, not to compete.” – Robert Anthony

Tough Love

“Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Unparalleled Freedom

“The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad pretty little unsexy ways, every day.” – David Foster Wallace

The Offensive Defense

“Much of the time, the things we feel guilty about are not our issues. Another person behaves inappropriately or in some way violates our boundaries. We challenge the behavior, and the person gets angry and defensive. Then we feel guilty.” – Melody Beattie

Respect the Root

“Respect is at the root of love. Be still. Know that you don’t have to coax anyone to hold you in high regard. When love is intentional + authentic, there will be no anxiety about reciprocity. Connections meant for you won’t be second-guessed or filled with uncertainty. Free yourself from relationships that leave you feeling insignificant.” – Alex Elle
