How to Be More Human
If you have ever had the desire to transform the way you view and experience life, the ability to think critically is one of the first steps, and How to Be More Human is the ultimate guide for building this critical thinking process. This book, just like its predecessors, strives to help us learn how to become more self-aware in our day-to-day interactions with others, as well as how to apply these same skills in the workplace. As society continues to become more connected, we are taught that communication and dialogue are the key to meaningful conversation and meaningful change. Yet many of us still manage to shoot ourselves in the foot by speaking and acting without thought, as if we were never even there.
As an example, one of the lessons presented in How to Be More Human is to remember that we are all part of an interconnected web of life. Each of us is affected by our interactions with others and we all need to learn how to connect with one another on a deeper level. Rather than trying to convert others to our way of thinking, or trying to manipulate them into seeing the same way we do, it would make much more sense to engage with them on an honest and level-headed level. When we take the time to listen carefully to what they have to say, as well as what we are saying, we can learn a lot about how we might have been communicating incorrectly or have failed to communicate at all. We might also realize that we have been internalizing unhealthy behaviors, such as blame, resentment, and resistance. All of this can then be transformed, and we will begin to see more harmony and peace in our lives.
While How to Be More Human provides wonderful examples of how we can be more conscious, it also shares some harsh but necessary realities, such as the aging process and the fact that death is a fact of life. It is important not to dwell on these things too long, however, because it can lead us to lose sight of the goals we have in our lives. After reading this book, however, you should be able to realize that you are not alone in dealing with the stresses of daily life. Instead, you will realize that there is always something you can do, no matter how challenging the situation may be. Once you have read this insightful book, you will then be on your way to creating the life you want.
