Living A Noble Life – Daily Practice

Here is how you address it:

 

1. Consciously practice all nine qualities a minimum of once a day. Just for a few seconds, identify each quality and consciously practice it. The ideal situation would be with someone who is present. There may be someone who needs a kind word of encouragement. They may be going through a difficult life situation. A friend may be going through a relationship breakup. Acknowledge to them how you admire the way they are managing this difficult situation.

 

2. Train yourself to observe others in your life. Everyone struggles. We are often caught up with our own dilemmas. You will be surprised at how you can be ignorant of what is going on with others. Be patient and gentle with yourself. Begin slowly with a few qualities and then expand to others. You may have difficulty identifying someone who is present with you in the moment. Identify someone who is not present and “talk” to him or her. Remember the Forgiveness process. Explain a truth you have been avoiding telling them. We are all human beings and there will be some days that we will practice some qualities more and others less. This is fine. It is your will and determination to accomplish a task that creates success. As you commit to this process, you will make it a part of your daily life.

 

3. Review at a convenient time, or at the end of your day, which qualities you completed and the ones you may have forgotten to practice. You completed a project to give to your boss. You were committed and you stayed on track. You were kind to the secretary by telling her something positive about herself. You did not practice humility because you over identified your successes to others.

 

4. Make a commitment to complete the next day, those qualities that you forgot and include the ones that you practiced. You could consciously avoid encouraging an issue that called attention to yourself. You may have been the one who was responsible for the majority of a successful project. Identify and acknowledge others who played a role. Practice humility. These qualities are simple to understand and easy to do just for a few seconds each day. I observed as I practiced, I was able to complete all nine regularly. The time taken was usually a few minutes each day. On the days that I forgot a quality, I would make sure that in the first few hours of my day, I had completed those.
5. Simply put on a calendar or memo pad how many qualities you practiced each day. For example if you completed six of them, put 6/9. Over a designated period of time, review your progress. Some people would like to do it in a week’s time or even a month. When you begin to look at the numbers, you will get an idea that the majority of the time, once you have given a commitment to do it, you actually are acting nobly. It gives you “a bird’s eye view” of all the positive actions that you have put in for that designated period. As mentioned, practicing this becomes part of your daily activitie
