I’ve Only Got Three Nerves Left – And You Are Pinching Two Of Them (Part 14)

(…continued from last week)

Don’t Try to Change Them

Don’t try to change their mind. Don’t try and control them.

They have a right to their opinions. Even if they’re wrong, they have a right to their opinions.

If you try and force them to change, you give them power. Don’t keep justifying it, don’t keep explaining, don’t keep arguing endlessly until they agree with you. Just acknowledge and let it go.

They may never agree with you. They don’t have to. You don’t need them to. You just need to deal with the situation honestly and let them think their thoughts.

If you’ve given them your opinion, your perspective, and they don’t get it, oh well. That’s just the way it goes. It’s often just the differences in people.

Remember the most common type of conflict that happens is conflict of perception or point-of-view. You don’t have to change them.

Thank Your Critic

One of the things you can do that will make most people who are being a critic absolutely crazy is, when they criticise you, thank them.

When someone gives you something you need, it’s appropriate to thank them isn’t it? When someone gives you a gift, you thank them for that. Consider thanking them even if you didn’t ask for the feedback.

Even if it wasn’t given in a particularly nice style, even if you have no intention of acting in accordance to their advice, thanking them makes them feel heard and it also takes away their thunder.

When they give you a hard time you might say, “Well thanks. I really appreciate you taking the time to tell me.”

Most of the time when you do that, people are quite taken aback. They can’t believe that you just thanked them, and they don’t know whether you’re being sincere or whether you’re playing a game with them and being sarcastic.

So if you say it in a sincere manner, “Well thank you for that input. I really appreciate that.” they oftentimes will not know exactly how to respond.

Take Care of You

When dealing with a negative person, and you only have three nerves left and they’re pinching two of them, you need to take care of yourself.

Johann Gottfried von Herder in the late 1700s said, “Nobody can contribute to the best of humanity who does not make the best out of himself.”

Each of us can make the best out of ourselves. We have to be able to manage tough situations.

Again, the only way you’re going to not have difficulties with other people is if you live isolated all by yourself, never seeing another human being, never having a discussion, never interacting in any way.

You will have conflicts. They’re absolutely part of life. We all know it, none of us like it, but they are part of the fabric of existence.

Find ways of managing yourself more effectively. Don’t get caught up in their drama. Whether it’s indirect, non-verbal, hostile or direct, don’t get caught up in their drama. It doesn’t help you, it does not help them.

You have the power and the ability to run your brain, to make your life more of what you want it to be. Don’t take on other people’s stuff. You take care of you first.

You can do this. Go for it! Make today and every day a great day!

This concludes “I’ve Only Got Three Nerves Left!” Please stay tuned next week for an all new program that can improve your relationships, your success, and your life for good!

The best of success to you!
