"Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your wordsKeep your words positive because your words become your behaviors. Keep your behaviors positive because your behaviors become your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny."
"There are two cardinal sins from which all the others spring:
impatience and laziness."
"You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the
circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself."
"I have never met a man so ignorant that I couldn't learn something from him." —Galileo Galilei.
To laugh is to risk appearing a fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out for another is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk rejection.
To place your dreams before a crowd is to risk ridicule.
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To go forward in the face of overwhelming odds is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing does nothing, has nothing, is nothing.
He may avoid suffering and sorrows, but he cannot learn, feel, change, grow, or love.
Chained by his certitudes, he is a slave - he has forfeited his freedom.
Only a person who takes risks is FREE.
You Are Wonderful! .
A famous singer had been contracted to sing, and ticket sales were booming. In fact, the night of the concert found the house packed and every ticket sold. The feeling of anticipation and excitement was in the air as the house manager took the stage and said, 'Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your enthusiastic support. I am afraid that due to illness, the lady whom you've all come to hear will not be performing tonight. However, we have found a suitable substitute we hope will provide you with comparable entertainment.' .
The crowd groaned in disappointment and failed to hear the announcer mention the stand-in's name. The environment turned from excitement to frustration. The stand-in performer gave the performance everything she had. When she had finished, there was nothing but an uncomfortable silence.
No one applauded.
Suddenly, from the balcony, a little boy stood up and shouted, 'Mummy, I think you are wonderful!' .
The crowd broke into thunderous applause.
all need people in our lives who are willing to stand up once in a
while and say, 'I think you are wonderful.'
