Think Highly of Yourself!

Friday, April 30, 2010

Think Highly of Yourself because the World Takes you at your own estimate.

SparkPeople Translation
Take a minute and think about your self-esteem. Do you think highly of yourself? Are you always giving 110%? Do other people look up to your positive attitude? There are times in all of our lives when we could use a self-esteem boost. It is easy to get discouraged in our fast paced society. It is crucial for you to remember that you must always think highly of yourself because most people only see how you treat yourself. So, think about it. Are you giving a message to others that says, I am successful, I give 110%, I like challenges, etc.

    You have no idea how much I agree with this. We should be our own best friend. Thank you for the reminders!

    I once had a teacher give me A+++ on an assignment and at first I thought they were being very silly but after talking to them about it I realized it was the grade I should be giving to them! That grade has stayed with me over the years as a target to aim for on everything - now I just need to find someone as brilliant as that professor to mark me again! heheh

    I totally agree...which is why it is important that people learn which choices are the good ones and then are brave enough to make them

Let Your Torch Shine Bright!

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Life is not a 'brief candle.' It is a splendid torch that must be made to burn as brightly as possible before it is handed on to the next generation.

- George Bernard Shaw, Irish critic and playwright

Life is Good!

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Many times, when I was having a hard time with one of my children, God would always remind me that He was having a harder time with me than I was with them.

  Iliked this. How so very true. We often forget that WE are problems to our maker. I think our children can be good teachers for us, if we just look a little deeper. As in weight loss, we are our own worse enemies (cliche). Really though, change can only come through us.

Use All That You Have!

Monday, April 26, 2010

Charles Shultz compared life to a ten speed bicycle in that we have a lot of gears we don't use. Take a few minutes and review your virtues and abilities and frankly assess how much of them you are using. the number will be frightfully low. Make it a project to use a little more of your talents, virtues and abilities each day until you are able to optimize yourself!

    Super!

When cycling, I use most of my gears when going up a hill or riding into a fierce wind! Or when the terrain changes from moment to moment. So we in life when the going gets tough the tough get going. And we use much of what we have and who we are in the midst of the many changes in life. emoticon

When we just sit in the safe zone we are not going to be challenged to use much of ourselves. It is when we are willing to launch out that life will call us to maximize ourselves the most.

    Good point! I used to have an acting teacher that said something similar. He said to use "all the colors on your pallette".
