You must be careful how you walk!

Saturday, July 24, 2010

You must be careful how you walk and where you go, for there are those following you who will set their feet where yours are set.

- Robert E. Lee, Civil War General

Do not lead for I might not follow. Do not follow for I might not lead. Take my hand and side by side we can go anywhere!

Somebody said this but I have no idea who it might be.

Take Total Responsibility!

Friday, July 23, 2010

The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up.

- John Maxwell, author and public speaker

At one time this quote was attributed to O.J. Simpson. I guess he was quoting Mr. Maxwell but it is interesting that this quotation ruins afoul of OJ's actions

    emoticon Great post!

I like John Maxwell - have a couple of his books. My favorite from him is making today a masterpiece.

And I do take responsibility for my attitude but still am working on that growing up thing!

Have a great day!

    Completely agree. I spent so long looking for external reasons why I didn't do something, or felt a certain way. In reality it comes down to my perception and reactions towards it. Happiness comes from within.

You're alive. Do something.

Thursday, July 22, 2010

You're alive. Do something.
The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated.
It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences.
It sounded like this: Look. Listen. Choose. Act.

The Mind is the Limit!

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it - as long as you really believe 100 percent.

~ Arnold Schwarzenegger

What the mind can conceive and believe, you can achieve.

Marcus Aurelius
