People Skills: The Art of Being Wise

Keeping your mouth shut is a great skill.

I consider it a skill, even a talent because it takes practice and mind work – it’s simply easier to blurt out whatever you’re thinking, or let your words wound when you are feeling hurt or threatened or angry.

Today, regardless of what happens can you keep your mouth shut? Can you use more wisdom? This quote from William James may help you,

“The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.”

Happy Over Looking!

You create your day by the way you think! Make it magnificent!

Blessings, Shawna
