How much future business are you missing out on because you've burned bridges? How many strong relationships are you missing out on because you won't let go of "what they did"? Do you find yourself mentally rehearsing an offense, when you could be focused on more productive endeavors? Not forgiving may be costing you more than you realize.
“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion." – Dalai Lama
Have you ever been in a workplace situation or at home where you knew what would happen if you made a mistake? Mistakes are inevitable. We’ve all been there but what usually gets us into trouble is not necessarily the mistake we made but how we choose to deal with it. Afraid of what the consequences may be, we might become fearful of what will happen to us and therefore try to hide what we have done. But what if we knew that those around us would be compassionate and forgiving towards us if we do make a mistake? How would we view mistakes and how would we feel if we made a mistake?
In this Audio Destination, we look at mistakes as a learning experience and demonstrate the freedom we feel when we know our mistakes will be met with compassion and forgiveness. You will understand the true meaning of forgiveness, the steps you can take to forgive, and the realization that anyone can do it. You will also discover how the work place and home is transformed when the hidden secrets of forgiveness and compassion are unleashed leading to a workplace and a home we would all want to be part of. Relationships will improve and what you will gain is clarity and peace of mind.
