I found this message very useful in my personal interactions. It reinforces another message i received the same morning. I have inserted it below hoping you may find it useful too.
Bowl of Saki, July 12, by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan:
Each one has his circle of influence, large or small; within his sphere so many souls and minds are involved; with his rise, they rise; with his fall, they fall. The size of a man's sphere corresponds with the extent of his sympathy, or we may say, with the size of his heart. His sympathy holds his sphere together. As his heart grows, his sphere grows; as his sympathy is withdrawn or lessened, so his sphere breaks up and scatters. If he harms those who live and move within his sphere, those dependent upon him or upon his affection, he of necessity harms himself. His house or his palace or his cottage, his satisfaction or his disgust in his environment is the creation of his own thought. Acting upon his thoughts, and also part of his own thoughts, are the thoughts of those near to him; others depress him and destroy him, or they encourage and support him, in proportion as he repels those around him by his coldness, or attracts them by his sympathy.
Each individual composes the music of his own life. If he injures another, he brings disharmony. When his sphere is disturbed, he is disturbed himself, and there is a discord in the melody of his life. If he can quicken the feeling of another to joy or to gratitude, by that much he adds to his own life; he becomes himself by that much more alive. Whether conscious of it or not, his thought is affected for the better by the joy or gratitude of another, and his power and vitality increase thereby, and the music of his life grows more in harmony.
~~~ He who can quicken the feeling of another to joy or to gratitude, by that much he adds to his own life.

The question, how do you relate to the notion that power is the medium through which we relate to one another initially caused me to recoil. I have lived the Machiavelli definition of power. As a child and young adult, my experience of powerful people is that of aggressive victimization by bigger stronger scary people. As a young child I understood myself to have power however I often gave my power away. It was either to avoid conflict because someone was going to grab it away from me any way, or so as not to assume responsibility for it. It’s interesting when I reflect on my youth I was either denied any power or I was accused of having omnipotent power. Either I was worthless incapable of anything, or through one mistake or transgression I was capable of great and horrific things (Just look what you did!) I remember age seven or eight thinking, ‘someday they will realize who I really am and they will be sorry’. Not sorry that they will feel incredible physical pain, but sorry that they will feel badly about how they treated me.
Based on my past experiences, I believe power requires responsible actions to ensure no one gets hurt. I’m reminded of the great line in the Spiderman movie when Uncle Ben says to young Peter Parker, ‘with great power comes great responsibility’. As an adult, in my work, I find myself in a position of power. In fact, I have the power a Machiavellian would dream of. Perhaps because of my childhood experiences today I am committed to reframing the concept and definition of power for myself and to use my position to interject it into the way business is conducted. I am in the position to create the work environment that encourages and inspires people to work for the common good. I choose to harness the power of positivity, love, kindness and respect. I choose to use the power of kindness to be the medium through which I relate to others. I “aspire to be someone who has the almost magical power of spreading happiness and confidence wherever he goes” (Norman Fischer).

For example, the last you want to replace me, become the new chairman and president of the Nike Air Max 2014 East, can you do it? As long as you have enough mentality and enough way to do things, as well as the mind, is certainly able to do. Everyone who wants to do a thing at once, even if he does this thing, he has no basis, because it is equal to the house made on the beach, and finally will collapse. Only slowly step by step to make things dry, every step to give yourself a solid foundation, every step to give yourself a good account, and then re-higher to the future Nike Air Jordan Womens to go every step of the people, he was able to put things Really make a success. When you decide what to do after a lifetime, you have to do it unswervingly, do not casually change. You can be like a river, the more the more wide, but do not want to go into another river, or become a mountain. With such a goal, your life will not Cheap Coach Bags shake, not because there is a chance, you scurry around, so you can make things. We are an important ability to live in the future, called the ability to bite the bullet. Many celebrities will encounter a lot of things you can not stand, but you have to endure. And you can not stand it alone can not succeed. Why, because you do not bite the bullet, you do not have Shoes Outlet time, you have no room, no to the future space. If you want to go to the future, and finally become more powerful, more prosperous, you have to do to give yourself enough time and space. Turn to our own life, to fight for a great goal, you must also rule out the exclusion of all trivial interference in your life, so you must be insulted. No matter what age we are, how can we do things for a moment? The world so that you can not get too much of the things, only when you are angry, the world before you can start the most glorious side. I have such a metaphor, every river has its own different life curve. Yangtze River and the Yellow River curve is absolutely not the same. But every river has its own dream, that is, toward the sea. So no matter how tortuous the Yellow River, how many obstacles around the Yangtze River turn bend more than the Yellow River, but she broke through the cliffs, with the way is not the same, but finally went to the sea. When we encounter difficulties, whether it is rushed past or around, as long as we can go on the line. I hope that we can make their lives to the dream flow, like the Yangtze River, Coach Wallets the Yellow River flows to the end of their dreams, into the wide ocean, so that their lives become open, so that their career becomes open. But not you want to flow can flow over, in fact, there is a spirit inside, there is no doubt that the spirit of water. Our life is sometimes a sediment, although you also follow the water flow together, but because of your personality defects, the face of the difficulties of retreat or timid, you may slowly like a sediment like sediment, Once you are settling down, maybe you do not have to work for the advance, but you will never see the sun. You precipitated down, the above sediment will continue to suppress you, and finally you will be dark days. So I suggest that no matter what life you are now, we must have the spirit of water. Even if it is contaminated, but also to wash themselves. Like water, continue to accumulate their own strength, continue to break through the obstacles, when you find the time is not the time to put their own thickness to the accumulation, when one day when the time comes, you can Pentium into the sea, the achievements of their own life. It is a state of mind, you want to cross the words, it must be Nike Air Max Shoes Online able to cross the past.Many people at work, with grievances and resentment at work, your work is far from doing well.How can we make things more successful. The first point, how to put their long-term goals and short-term goals together. We must first clear, what things we want to do things for a lifetime, what things are all done, we can not do things. China has a saying that urgent things slow to Coach Handbags Outlet do, you are more anxious things, you do more carefully, more serious, the more things can be done.
