Wait. What? Did they really say that? Hmmm.
Has it ever been your experience that sometimes knowledge sneaks up on you; that new knowledge can take time to be truly appreciated? Well, I have. Let me share some of my “knowledge epiphanies”:
- Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, that the ark was built by an amateur. Professionals built the Titanic.
- Before you criticize another person, walk a mile in their shoes. If you do, you’ll be a mile away when you do criticize, plus you’ll have another pair of shoes. IKR -- - Success comes in “cans”; failures in “can'ts”.
- It’s easier to make hard decisions when you know what your core values are.
- All of us are gifted, but some of us never open the package.
- The problems we encounter in life and business are often described as “hurdles”; which means there must be a way over them.
- When facing a problem remember that you are more likely to trip or stumble on the pebbles than you are likely to trip over the mountain itself.
- Winners make goals, losers make excuses.
Now this last proposition may take you back a bit, but you may warm up to it with a little time:
- There are only two things to worry about, either you are healthy or you are sick. If you are healthy, then there is nothing to worry about. But if you are sick there are only two things to worry about, either you will get well or you will die. If you get well there is nothing to worry about. But if you die there are only two things to worry about, either you will go to heaven or to hell. If you go to heaven, then there is nothing to worry about. And, if you go to hell, you’ll be too darn busy shaking hands with your friends that you won’t have time to worry.
Or, there is an alternative last thought…
- Achieving starts with believing in yourself. You pick.
