Quotes

“The practice of virtues is really… a guide to bring people together and help us look at what this new world will look like. It’s about who we are as people and who we can become going forward.”

“Virtues are just universal positive qualities of character and the way they are expressed may be different from culture to culture; however, the essence of the virtues… [is] the same.”

“Virtues are going to spread virally around the world, uplifting humanity and helping people remember who they are.”

Takeaways

Virtues Pick – Daily Reflection on Universal Positive Qualities

Dara explains a virtues pick as an important practice to remember our inherent nobility and to be able to understand ourselves and one another. Making a habit of picking a daily virtue also helps lay the foundation “to see through the lens and speak through the lens of the virtues.”

The Journey to Virtues and Making Them Matter

A contemporary of Dara introduced her to the Virtues Cards, which led her to order the pack and educator guide to use in her class. Dave joined her to create a mobile app, which laid the seed for Virtues Matter.

Using Virtues in Dave and Dara’s Daily Life

Dave says he does a daily virtual pick, using the reminder in the app to help him take time out of his day to ground himself. Dara and he do it together before they begin a meeting or a date! 

Using the Virtues for Business

Dave recommends employing a virtues pick before beginning a business meeting. Dara suggests giving five positive affirmations before any feedback to tap the potential for virtues which exist within each person. 

More great insights from our guests! 

Dave and Dara’s program ‘Share the Love’ is aimed at bringing forth positivity and peace and asks each person to begin a chain of acts of love. They are also offering a course on learning the language of virtues and bettering your relationship with yourself and others.
