a lady called ‘Miss Understood’

‘To be great is to be misunderstood.’ – Ralph Waldo Emerson.

History teaches us that a great person’s companion throughout life is a lady called ‘Miss Understood.’

However, it’s how you entertain her that will make all the difference of how you fair in the (in the words of the wisest man who ever lived) ‘dog eat dog’ world that we live in.

Here are a few ways that you can do that:

1. Listen – Whenever there’s a misunderstanding, listen. Because at times there is a possibility that there could be an element of truth communicated to you.

2. Learn – As a fellow traveler in this world, we can always learn something about others, and about ourselves when a misunderstanding occurs. Take notes.

3. Improve – If you glean a truth from what ‘Miss Understood’ has shared with you, then apply it to your life immediately. You’ll be richer because of it.

4. Don’t React – Now if the misunderstanding has arisen from a clashing of belief systems, then resist reacting. Be big enough to let it go. You can’t change others, if they choose not to change. Simply love those who fail to comprehend your heart. Time passed has a habit of bringing forth truth in the truest of light.

So take care of ‘Miss Understood’, your fellow traveler, as you continue on your journey towards a life of outstanding influence and significance – and choose to be great.
