Roger Harty: True Courage

Roger Harty: True Courage

March 26, 2017 at 11:13 am 0 comments

WHAT is very helpful here is to look at the etymology of the word ‘Courage’. It comes from the French word ‘le coeur’ meaning Heart. So when we talk and act from ‘The Heart’ we are showing true courage. Where is the evidence of this? All we need to do is […]

Roger Harty: Charity

March 12, 2017 at 11:23 am 0 comments

I SUPPOSE a good place to begin with anything is at the start and a good place to start here is in the dictionary. Charity is described as ‘Charitable giving is the act of giving money, goods or time to the unfortunate, either directly or by means of a charitable […]

HOPE is the ability to see the light in the darkest of situations. They say the difference between a pessimist and an optimist is as follows… A pessimist is a person who sees the difficulty in every opportunity.  An optimist is a person who sees the opportunity in every difficulty. Hope […]

Roger Harty: What Is Faith?

February 19, 2017 at 11:10 am 0 comments

FAITH, in layman’s terms,  is concentrating on a process knowing that it will work. The key word here is ‘knowing’. In other words you don’t believe it will work (belief is an opinion!) you know it will work. You see, true knowing is not leaving any room for doubt. In […]

IF we are to be honest I’m sure even though we might not like to admit it there is a bit of a detective hidden in all of us. I used to love watching the TV detective ‘Columbo’ many years ago, when he would turn around at the last minute […]

Roger Harty: Thank You

THE sages say that perhaps the most powerful feelings that we can endow ourselves with is that of gratitude, and the easiest way to express that feeling is to say a simple yet sincere ‘Thank You’. Last week I wrote an article about the importance of tradition and culture in our […]

DID you ever hear the comment passed about someone –‘He’s a nice man but there is no real depth to him’? What does this word ‘depth’ mean and is it important if he is a nice man? Well I suppose nice is good but if we really want to develop […]

ABOUT 10 years ago I was first introduced to a book called ‘The Power of Now’ by Eckhart Tolle – it is a testament to this book that it has sold over 30 million copies worldwide. At first I couldn’t make  head nor tail of it and I put it away […]

Roger Harty: The Art Of Kaizan

December 18, 2016 at 10:50 am 1 comment

‘KAIZEN’ is a Japanese word meaning ‘good change’ but it is used in business terms meaning the philosophy of ‘continuous effort at improvement’. The great Toyota car company in Japan would be a good example of the kaizen philosophy at work. As I have often said, there is a huge […]

Roger Harty: Ego (Part 2)

December 11, 2016 at 11:46 am 0 comments

THREE simple letters, yet they have so much influence on our lives and certainly on our happiness. There is an old, but wise saying that goes as follows – ‘Be careful what you tell yourself’. A good question here is to ask why do we have to be so careful? The […]

Roger Harty: Ego

December 4, 2016 at 11:25 am 1 comment

I PURPOSEFULLY left this little word stand alone in its own right without adding or subtracting  to the title. I suppose the underlying reason for this is to show how three simple letters can describe something (is it even a thing?) that can play such a powerful part in our lives. […]

Roger Harty: The Difference Between Success And Happiness

November 27, 2016 at 11:13 am 3 comments

SUCCESS: Is having what you want. Happiness: Is wanting what you have. Very often we hear in life ‘don’t take things literally’, but in this case, I think to get the full meaning and benefit of the above mentioned definitions, it is important to take every word literally as it was […]

Roger Harty: The Importance Of The Word Abstract

OK, this article is a little tricky, but that’s ok with me because the word ‘Abstract’ is a little tricky. Useful quote: If you change the way you look at the world; the world you look at changes – Wayne Dyer. Right let’s get down to business. If I asked most […]

I WROTE in my article last week (click here) that the greatest gift that we can give another human being is our presence. Let me elaborate further on this statement that the greatest form of Presence we can give is a genuine listening ear. Continued below… That would certainly be ‘The […]

HAVE you ever been flabbergasted when presented with a certain piece of information? I am going to reveal to you one occasion when this happened to me. My first reaction was that this couldn’t be right. I was so amazed that I can remember exactly where I was at the time […]

Roger Harty: ‘Oneness’

October 30, 2016 at 12:16 pm 1 comment

WHAT is ‘Oneness’? Well it is absence of ‘Twoness’. I know and accept that this is a corny answer but there might just be something in it. You see, what I refer to as ‘Twoness’ is often referred to as duality in psychology. Duality, in other words, means moving into […]

IF I was to give an analogy, then I think a very good one would be that of food. Without doubt many people have a love for convenience food, whether it be takeaway burgers and chips or tasty snacks like pizzas, chocolate bars and crisps (AKA junk food). They may […]

IT is nearly 40 years since I studied Latin for my Junior Cert (Inter Cert as it was then!) in St Brendan’s College in Killarney. Latin and Greek in language terms were known as ‘the classics’ and all I can say is tempus fugit (time flies). Honesty is the best […]

THERE was a belief not that long ago that the world was flat. Because that was the belief, it was therefore not surprising that all thoughts that were generated at that time arose on the assumption that the world was indeed flat. Thus there was huge fear generated at that time, […]

ARTISTS often fascinate me, especially for the way they give us an insight into the manner of how we live our lives. Art is a very broad term as it can include painting, music, prose, poetry, writing etc. etc. but for the purpose of this article music is the one I […]

I WAS in John B Keane’s pub in Listowel last Friday night celebrating the last hurrah of the Listowel races. I must say there is something about the human body that loves routine and just like sheep, there is certain routine that we follow like clockwork – especially in Kerry – […]

I MUST admit that I have never been a great fan of Star Wars movies and their ilk, as I found them to be futuristic and perhaps a bit too unrealistic for my liking. In simple terms, what are now referred to as sci-fi (a film genre that uses science fiction) […]

  WITHOUT a shadow of a doubt, I believe it is safe to say that one of the most iconic American groups of the ‘60’s and ‘70’s was the Beach Boys. They represented the all – surfin’, fun-packed, sun worshiping, beach- loving image of the Californian dream amongst the youth culture […]

‘FEEL the Fear and do it anyway’ is the title of a famous book by Susan Jeffers. The title of the book speaks for itself – it really is all connected with the area of psychological fear and in simple terms it is telling us to feel i.e. (recognise) the […]

I CANNOT emphasise enough the importance of ownership in our lives. It is a key to success, health and happiness, which practically every human being strives for, but you will fail to succeed in any of these areas unless ownership is a very strong part of the relationship. I can hear […]

THIS is something that has struck a chord with me for a long time – that basically theme parks are fundamentally extremely safe places. They have to be because they would not be able to get insurance cover. If there was any real danger of life being lost then insurance companies […]
