Weekly Wisdom Newsletter #40
Published Date: Sunday, July 28, 2019
This week's newsletter features wisdom from Jay Shetty, a former monk whose mission is to make wisdom go viral. Here are this week's chosen learning points:
Conflict Resolution: A relationship fight should not be "Me vs. You". It should be "Us. vs. The Problem." (Source)
The Rule of 100: If you knock on 100 doors, maybe 2 or 3 will open. For example, the rejection rate for online job applications is 98%. Being scared of rejection stops us from knocking, and not knocking stops us from success. (Source)
Defining Success: "If you let someone else dictate your failure, you'll let them dictate your success as well." - Jay Shetty
Here are this week's recommended actions:
The next time you're in a relationship fight, focus on not attacking the other person and instead stating the problem clearly and then attacking it with your partner
If you are on a path of rejection, write each one down. Use the rule of 100 to put the number of rejections you've had into perspective.
Identify if your feelings of success or failure are coming from the inside or outside. If outside, then figure out your own internal criteria.
