A Person’s Most Useful Asset is not Their Head Full of Knowledge, but Their Pure Heart Full of Love, Ears Ready to Listen, and Hands Willing to Help
As we all grow up, we are taught that the most important thing in life is education and knowledge. We are told that if we want to achieve success, we need to work hard and earn an education so that we can get ahead in life. But I beg to differ with this mentality; it’s not the formal education or even IQ that counts as much as one’s interpersonal skills and character traits when it comes to being successful in life, as these help us become respected members of society who possess the ability to positively influence others around them and bring about positive change in the world at large.
A head full of knowledge is not the most useful asset of a person
In the words of Mother Teresa A person’s most useful asset is not their head full of knowledge but their pure heart full of love. What a powerful sentence! The most useful asset that anyone has at his or her disposal isn’t a head full of knowledge, but rather a pure heart full of love. It may sound clichéd, but if you really think about it there are very few things that you can’t do if you have a big enough heart. The problem for many people isn’t so much about having the ability to act on what they want as it is about having the desire. A person with no desire for change in their life will never be able to make any changes happen.
A pure heart full of love is the most useful asset of a person
The most useful asset of a person is not their head full of knowledge but their pure heart full of love. This pure heart full of love enables a person to listen with their ears, help with their hands, and forgive with their hearts. The pure heart full of love will open the door to learn. A person who has this pure heart full of love will be able to learn from anyone, at anytime, anywhere because they are all willing teachers. There is no one better than you because everyone else could teach you something new if you have an open mind that listens. Even though everyone can teach us something we do not know, it still does not mean that everyone should. We need to put our faith in those who love us first before we try anything new. It does not matter how often or how many people tell you that there is someone better for you out there; the key word here is better. You cannot find someone better for you unless it means better for your relationship with yourself and those around you (i.e., family, friends). When it comes down to it, the best advice any person can give another is
Ears ready to listen are the most useful asset of a person
Listening is an integral part of communication. A person that can’t listen well may miss out on important information or make a decision without understanding all the facts.
Listening helps relationships. When you are listening well, you are able to really hear what the other person has to say. Listening also helps you feel connected with that person because you understand their perspective.
Listening can take many forms. You can listen by actively making eye contact while they talk and nodding in agreement when they say something important. You can also listen by reading their body language and facial expressions for signs that they need help or reassurance.
The most useful asset of a person isn’t their head full of knowledge– it’s their pure heart full of love with ears ready to listen!
Hands willing to help are the most useful asset of a person
There are two types of people in this world. There are those who will help you when they can and those who won’t. Which type of person you want to be? The way I see it, we all have a choice as to how we want the world to perceive us. Do we want others to remember us as one who was kind or unkind? As one who helped or didn’t help? Think about it for a moment.
We should always remember that there is someone out there with something worse than what we may be dealing with so show them some kindness because you never know what they may be going through on the inside.
