Confucian style


read books and cultivate talent

the belly is full of poetry and books. He often reads books, and his temperament changes naturally, and he slowly becomes pregnant as if he were pregnant.

many times, many of the books you think you have read have become a thing of the past and can no longer be remembered, but in fact they are still potential and can be used at any time.

although they can't help you solve problems right away, they can increase your knowledge and make your speech more restrained.

they can't make you more beautiful, but they can add a touch of bookish style to you and make you more outstanding.

after reading too much, you and your lover have not only firewood, rice, oil, salt, sauce and vinegar tea to talk about, but also piano, chess, calligraphy, painting, poetry, hops and flowers in your life.

Wang Yangming and Zeng Guofan, two great sages who have made great achievements in knowledge and service, a lot of their wisdom comes from books.

Wang Yangming loves reading. He was demoted to Longchang in Guiyang at the age of 37.

the people in this place are very barbaric and have not received any enlightenment.

he thought that these savages should be taught to read.

I've lost all my carry-on baggage. How can I find a book?

so he wrote in silence and wrote out the book he had read word by word. He wanted to teach wild people to read the Book of changes, so he wrote the whole Book of changes.

of course, Wang Yangming's reading is not to learn by rote, but to emphasize that we can invent our own mind by reading. The purpose of reading is to cultivate our own mind and body and lead to conscience.

those who are good at physiognomy in ancient times also say that reading can change the appearance of bones. "

Reading can change one's temperament, even one's bone appearance.

Zeng Guofan said the difference between reading and reading:

"the viewer attacks the city and expands the land, and the reader defends the earth and defends the narrow. The two are completely different, neither que nor mixed."

actually means that reading expands the scope of knowledge and belongs to the category of extensive reading;

Reading is the category of intensive reading, which consolidates, digests and absorbs existing knowledge.

diligence nourishes luck

people usually think that luck depends on luck. Actually this is not so.

the so-called one voice corresponds to each other, and the whole Book of changes emphasizes "induction".

as the old saying goes, there is no way for misfortune and happiness, but people call themselves; the husband's heart begins with good, but good does not do, and good God has followed; or the heart begins with evil, although evil has not done, but evil has followed.

diligence can nourish luck.

A person is diligent and good at making preparations, and he will benefit when the time comes.

there is a sentence in Li Ka-shing's autobiography:

if you just stand still, you won't hurt your toe. The faster you walk, the more likely you are to hurt your toe, but again, the more likely you are to get a chance.

the most important thing is that there must be a decision or reply in the morning or afternoon.

if what happens in the afternoon is very complicated, you must reply within 24 hours. My watch always sets forward 10 minutes in order to attend the next appointment on time.

setting the watch 10 minutes faster is a habit that Li Ka-shing has developed over the years.

in Li Ka-shing's view, this is a manifestation of seizing the opportunity.

people who have gained something in shopping malls must be hardworking and good at seizing the first opportunity.

10 minutes earlier every day means an extra 10 minutes a day.

what is the first opportunity in Li Ka-shing's eyes?

when a new thing appears and only 5% of people know about it, do it quickly. This is the opportunity, and doing it is the first opportunity.

when 50% of people know, you can be a consumer. When it's over 50%, you don't even have to look at it!

this is an important factor that makes Li Ka-shing invincible.

through this "first opportunity" tip, it is not difficult to find that the words such as hurrying and doing early all convey an important message, that is, diligence.

be generous and nourish the atmosphere

the higher the level of people, the more generous they are, the more magnificent they are.

low-level people, the realm is narrow, do not know what leniency is, pay a few meters all day, worry about gain and loss.

Cao Jiesu, Cao Cao's great-grandfather, is famous for his generosity in the countryside.

once, the neighbor's pig ran away, and this pig looks exactly like the pig in Cao Jie's family.

the neighbor went to the Cao family and said it was his pig. Cao Jie did not argue with him, so he gave the pig to his neighbor.

then the neighbor's pig was found, and the neighbor knew he had made a mistake and apologized again and again.

Cao Jie only smiles and does not blame his neighbors.

the story of Prime Minister Lu Mengzheng is recorded in the Records of the words and deeds of Song Mingchen.

Lv Meng became a member of the public affairs only a few years after the Jinshi, which was equivalent to the post of deputy prime minister at that time.

when he went to court one morning, Lu Meng pretended not to hear someone criticize him for being too junior to participate in politics.

his entourage wanted to track down the person who said this for him, but Lu Mengzheng said:

"if I knew this person's name, I would still be bitter about it. What's the advantage of that?" Besides, I have nothing to lose if I don't pursue the matter. "

it is precisely because of such tolerance and magnanimity that Lu Mengzheng helped Taizong consolidate the rule of the early Song Dynasty and become a famous figure.

the value between people lies in harmony. If you condemn other people's small mistakes, expose other people's privacy, and never forget other people's old evils;

will make our hearts hijacked and narrow-minded, create a hidden crisis when we get along with others, and make more enemies for ourselves.

Yang Jisheng, a scholar in the Ming Dynasty, once said in a letter to his son:

"it is better that I let others than others let me; that I would rather be tolerated than tolerated; that I would rather suffer than make others suffer; and that I would rather be angry than angry.

I will never forget the kindness of others for the rest of my life; if others complain about me, I will throw it away in time.

when you see the benefits of others, you praise them; when you hear about their shortcomings, you keep your mouth shut.

when someone tells you that someone wants to be grateful to you, say that he is grateful to me, but I am not grateful to him, which makes grateful people feel more deeply.

when someone tells you that someone is angry and slanderous about you, they say that he is usually the best with me, and how can there be any reason to exasperate and slander me, so that the resentment of those who are angry and slanderous will be resolved naturally. "

in life, if you want to live with taste and appearance, you can't be without tolerance. And if you want to be generous, you have to be generous.

Things go better with our stunning gold sparkly bridesmaid dresses. You'll be surprised by the confidence you'll have!

if the heart is not wide and the world is small, the road becomes narrower and narrower, and there is even no way out.

in real life, some men have a bad temper and are easily furious.

some men are kind-looking, humiliating and courteous, with a good demeanor of humility.

to cultivate one's mind, one must first cultivate virtue, and one must first cultivate one's anger.

as the ancients said, "put up with calm for a while and take a step back."

if a person can be magnanimous and tolerate humiliation, he can naturally stay away from right and wrong, carefree, and have a magnificent and carefree life.

be indifferent to cultivate ambition

Zhuge Liang wrote in the Book of Commandments: "you can't make your mind clear without indifference, and you can't go far without serenity."

in the 37th edition of the Romance of the three Kingdoms, the door couplet in Zhuge Caolu is: Yupo with clear mind, quiet and far away.

people are always entangled by all kinds of desires.

the human heart is also easy to become a captive of desire.

as the saying goes, the heart is a plain walking horse, which is easy to release but difficult to take away. There is also an idiom called distracted horse.

apes and horses are fast-moving and difficult-to-control animals. It can be said that the ancients compared them to our hearts with profound implications.

Chapter 12 of Laozi says:

"the five colors are blind; the five tones are deafening; the five tastes are refreshing; the hunting is maddening; the rare goods are inconvenient."

if people really want to do something, they must be indifferent and tranquil. They should not indulge their desires and should not kill their spirits in the pursuit of sensual pleasure.

being indifferent to serenity is not only the only way for us to make our ambition clear and determined, but also a state of life.

Laozi said that cleanliness is the justice of the world.

as the saying goes, mediocrity is true.

only when one is indifferent and pure, can one be free from the dust in his heart.

the spring breeze is elegant, and the autumn articles are not stained with dust.

people who are indifferent should have the spirit of pines and cypresses, not burdened by fame and wealth, not seduced by prosperity, leisurely, unspoiled, indifferent and tranquil is the best spiritual realm for self-cultivation and clear mind.

only in the realm of indifference and serenity can we really understand what we want.

just like Tao Yuanming, he returned to his garden and lived a leisurely life.

this state of life is as described by Tao Yuanming in his poem drinking:

A cottage is in the human world, but there are no carriages and horses.

how can I ask you? Secluded heart makes secluded place.

picking wild flowers by the fence, I accidentally saw Nanshan.

the mountain air is good day and night, and the birds return.

there is a true meaning in this, but I have forgotten to say it if I want to distinguish it.

when we come to this world, we might as well keep an indifferent heart, and we don't have to design the most beautiful itinerary because we don't have to worry about gains and losses.

in this way, even if you return to dust in the future, you will be calm and calm.

one book a week is released by authorization.

good news, I believe there is always a voice that warms you.
