3 Quotes That Can Guide Your Life (if you let them)

Sunday, February 09, 2014

Just lost all the writing I did TWICE for this blog! Argghhh!

Now I'm just going to post the three quotes and stop.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
1. "If you want to know your past - look into your present conditions. If you want to know your future - look into your present actions." – a Buddhist saying

2. “Figure out what you want. Find people who have achieved it and find out how they think and act, and then follow their lead.” – Bill Harris

Wanting is not enough;
ACT upon your goals!
If somebody was watching
your day-to-day behavior,
would they be able to see what
you’re working towards;
what your goals are?
If the answer is no, FIX IT!

Perhaps I'll edit later, but for now, I've spent enough time on it.

Also, I feel these three quotations together can stand on their own merit. People need to interpret them within the parameters of their own life anyway.

    Q: were you doing this on your phone?? I'm more likely to lose blogs that way. I finally just decided to write my title, and type out a general idea, save it, then open the other browsers to copy and paste in whatever quotes, links, whatever, and just edit it dozens of times. At least I don't lose it as often and have that frustrating headbanging experience of tying and retyping on that tiny screen (I'm about to go blind.).

A. if you are on your PC and losing the blog, then you have more complex issues...

(Rebounding might help??)

    Great reminders! Thanks!

I remember a long time ago, an elderly lady in our church commented that people always told her they wished they could play piano like her. Her reply was: You can't just want it or wish for it, you need to practice!

That has always made an impact on me whenever I find myself wanting to do means I have to DO something about it! So I do! And I did! ( I started piano lessons soon after!)

I'm sorry we missed out on all your other words of wisdom, but you're right, these quotes say much on their own!

Thanks again!
