*Why is it so difficult to realize that others are more likely to listen to us if first we listen to them?
* Why is it so much easier to be negative than positive?
* Why is it so difficult to motivate ourselves when we know that results come only through motivation?
* Why is it so difficult to say thank you to someone when those are two of our own favorite words to hear?
* Why do we dread adversity when we know that facing it is the only way to become stronger, smarter, better?
