Ignore the Phone Once

Prune Pressure Phrases

7. Pressure phrases like "I have to", "I must", "I should", "I don't have the time", provoke feelings of stress. Replace them in your thoughts and speech with more relaxed phrases — "I may", "I choose to", "I will make the time".

Think Before You Buy

B. Discuss in the group your ways of relaxing and staying calm

Ex. 609. Read the following and say what are your values and laws of life.

The world operates on spiritual principles,just as it does on the laws of physics and gravity. Following the laws of life will give you a greater chance of succeeding at anything you attempt to do.

1. Enthusiasm is a law of life. To be a success you must work with your whole heart. Work is the true elixir of life. The busiest man is the happiest man. Idleness warps the mind.

2. Energy is a law of life. Successful, deeply fulfilled people are constantly trying new things, searching for ways to improve what they are doing.

3. Humility is a law of life. The teacher is in school to help students; students should be humble enough to realize that the teacher knows more than they do. They should learn at an early age to profit from the knowledge of parents and teachers.

4. Pleasing others is a law of life. Now, of course, it's impossible to please everyone, but we will be more productive and successful if we try. That means pleasing your colleagues, pleasing your clients and customers.

5. Giving is a law of life. Successful people give and give still more; their giving is returned to them in full measure as it leads to success, both in worldly terms and spiritually. Every act of helping is a way of saying Yes to life. The best way to help yourself is to help others. Remember the concept that as you sow, so shall you reap.

6. Learning from others is a law of life. You can learn to assimilate the wisdom of many lives. It is possible to learn to avoid mistakes, and to put new virtues into practice. It is important to learn something new each day. Learning is a lifetime process. Don't end up like people who, upon graduating from high school, never read another book. We must continue to read, to learn, to experience new feelings and ideas. To show the initiative at an early age. To observe others. To listen carefully to others.

7. Altruism is a law of life. The altruistic person tries to make our world a better place to live in his individual way.

8. Value time. Time is the only one thing that can never be retrieved. One may lose and regain a friend; one may lose and regain money; opportunity once lost may come again; but the hours that are lost in idleness can never be brought back to be used.

9. One of the laws of life states that by expressing love, you attract love. To succeed in your career you must love yourself. All successful people radiate self-love as well as love for others.

10. We live in a world and a time of spiralling progress. We are better educated, better fed, and better housed than any other people at any other time in the history of ttie world. One of the greatest secrets of success and progress is to understand our good fortune, and to continually use new methods, new ways of thinking. Whatever field you have chosen as a career, it is vital that you study hard, and try to become the most knowledgeable person in your field.
