“You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Will your next kindness be too late?
“Silence cannot be misquoted.” - John Lucas
Do you know when to be quiet?
“Our thoughts create our reality – where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go.” - Peter McWilliams
What reality are your thoughts creating?
Living One Day At A Time
You and I are standing this very second at the meeting place of two eternities: the vast past that has endured forever, and the future that is plunging on to the last syllable of recorded time. We can’t possibly live on either of those eternities – no, not even for one split second. But, by trying to do so, we can wreck both our bodies and our minds. So, let’s be content to live the only time we can possibly live: from now until bedtime.
“Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, until nightfall,” wrote Robert Louis Stevenson. “Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day. Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down. And this is all that life really means.”
“If we are to achieve results never before accomplished, we must expect to employ methods never before attempted.” - Francis Bacon
Do you practice “outside the box” thinking?
There's no thrill in easy sailing when the skies are clear and blue,
There's no joy in merely doing things which any one can do.
But there is some satisfaction that is mighty sweet to take,
When you reach a destination that you thought you'd never make.
“If you think you can or if you think you can’t, either way you are right.” - Tony Robbins
What thoughts can you admit into your mind that will cause you to be successful?
“Egotism is the anesthetic which nature gives us to deaden the pain of being a fool.” - Dr. Herbert Schofield
Do you consider yourself better than others?
“Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years; people grow old only by deserting their ideals.” - Samuel Ullman
What are the things in life that mean the most to you?
“Thinking well is wise; planning well, wiser; doing well wisest and best of all.” - Persian Proverb
Do you spend some time each day working the plan you have developed?
“If you want to know how rich you really are, find out what would be left of you tomorrow if you should lose every dollar you own tonight?” - William J. H. Boetcker
Do you measure yourself by what you have or by what you give?
"The abundant life of which we have heard so much recently does not come to those who have all obstacles removed from their paths by others. It develops from within and is rooted in strong mental and moral fiber. To look to government to supply all material safeguards is to sound the doom of the great American tradition. If America is to go forward, we must develop in our colleges ideals of courage, industry, and independence."
William Mather Lewis
President - George Washington University - 1923-27
President - Lafayette College - 1927-45
I wonder how many colleges and universities are teaching the ideals of courage, industry and independence, today?
I have reinvented myself numerous times over my professional career.
