I have yet to meet someone that would refuse extra money. Whether it's a raise at work, lottery winnings or a $100 bill laying on the side of the road. But, it's hard to control those things. Sure, you could work harder at your job, play the lottery and go on more walks.
In an increasingly complex world, society is rediscovering the importance of teaching character qualities or "how one behaves and engages in the world."
We have all become good at communicating out but not communicating in. We want to be heard but we are not able or willing to hear.
Sometimes when we are trying to communicate with another person it can feel like crossing the Grand Canyon. There can be a huge chasm between the message we are intending to send and the message that is actually received. We can even tell someone while delivering our intended message that we aren't criticizing them, or that we aren't trying to hurt their feelings, but they still end up hurt and feeling criticized.
