Here is some Inspiration to help you stop workplace bullying:
Inspiration is the key in creating an encouraging atmosphere. This helps to build the strength needed to take those steps you’d like to take in order to bully proof yourself and establish clear boundaries.
Consider the virtues of: Diligence and Detachment
These words of wisdom are from the Virtues Project™ http://www.virtuesproject.com
Diligence is doing what needs to be done with care, concentration and single-pointed attention. It springs from our desire for excellence. When we work with diligence, we give our absolute best. We are artisans, crafting whatever we create with love. We work meticulously in alignment with our purpose. Diligence is needed in tending our relationships. We choose them with discernment, then give them our full commitment, job, love and excellence to keep them strong and alive. Diligence is deeply satisfying to our souls.
“Genius is 10% inspiration, and 90% perspiration.” – Thomas Alva Edison
The Practice of Diligence
Detachment is experiencing our feelings without allowing them to control us. We step back and look at things objectively. We let go and accept what we cannot change. We detach from others’ choices, knowing that their spiritual work is not ours to do. We choose how we will act rather than just reacting. We step away from harmful cravings. Detachment is a deep breath of peace and patience in response to unexpected anger. We can listen without losing ourselves. With detachment, we see our mistakes honestly, make amends and start afresh. Detachment allows us to be in the world but not of it. It frees us to live our lives with grace.
“You always have the choice to take all things evenly, to hold on to nothing, to receive each irritation as if you had only fifteen minutes to live.” – Tolbert McCarroll
