Values Check List

I have made a random list of values. I suggest you take a moment to check those values that are personally most important to you and then ask yourself why you chose those values and if you really do live these values in your every day life. Your Values Check List: • Authenticity • Balance • Genuineness • Commitment • Compassion • Concern for...

Be Grateful

If the only prayer you say in your whole life is ’Thank You’, that will suffice. Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others. Appreciation is like an insurance policy. It has to be renewed every now and then. Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel free to delight in whatever remains to them?

Do It Now!

To change one’s life, one should start immediately. Do it flamboyantly without exception. The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is actually doing it. There are two kinds of people; those who don’t do what they want to do, so they write down in a diary about what they haven’t done… …then there are those who haven’t the time to write about it because they’re out doing it. If you have something to do that is worthwhile doing, don’t talk about it… just do it. Action is the antidote to despair. Activity and sadness are incompatible. Action...
