What are we going to learn?
People generally tend to share their moments of happiness
and sorrow. They are happy when they become wealthy. They
will be joyous when promoted at work, content when they recover
from illness, and cheerful when the world smiles at them
and fulfils their dreams.
Likewise, they all grieve over illness, disgrace and loss of
wealth. Knowing this to be the case, let us look for ways in which
to make our joy everlasting and hence overpower our sorrows.
Yes, in reality life tends to be both sweet and bitter, and on this
we would not disagree, but why do we often focus on our calamities
and sorrows, and as a result become depressed for days
on end? Where an hour is enough to grieve over something,
hours on end are spent grieving. Why?
I realise that sorrow and anguish enter our hearts without
seeking permission, but for each door of sadness that opens
there are a thousand means of shutting it, and these are what we
will expound here.
Allow me to bring your attention to another matter: How
often is it that we see those people who are loved by everyone?
Many long to meet them and be in their company, but do you
not wish to be one of them? Why be content at being amazed by
such people all the time? Why not try to be amazing yourself?
Here we will learn how to be amazing.
Why was it that when your cousin spoke at the gathering,
everyone listened to him attentively? Why were they amazed at
his manners of speech? Why was it that when you spoke, they
all turned away and began to talk amongst themselves? Why was
that? You may be more well-informed, better qualified and possess
a higher status than him. How then did he manage to get all
the attention and you failed?
Why is it that one father is dearly loved by his children who
love to greet him and accompany him wherever he goes, while
another father begs his children to accompany him while they
keep making all kinds of excuses to avoid doing so?
Are they not both fathers? Then why the difference?
Here we will learn how to enjoy life, know the various techniques
to attract people, influence them, persevere with their
faults, deal with people with bad manners, and much, much more.
