Quote to Live By (11/05/2019)

Good things come to those who Believe, Better things come to those who are patient and the best things come to those who Don’t give up.

This is a great mentality let alone “quote”. I think that in today’s world there has been less recognition than needed for those who don’t give up.

Tenacity is one hell of an underrated character trait.

Quote to Live By (Plato)

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle…

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.

Plato

Every now and then we need a good reminder that our American life is not tough in the grand scheme of things.

Things we have that are not common everywhere in the world:

  1. Clean water
  2. Enough food
  3. Security in our community
  4. Stable government
  5. Freedom

Today I encourage you to consider this perspective whenever you start to think about how tough your life is. I know I can be better about this. Be the one that can say “We can do this. It is tough, but there are others that…”.

Quotes to Live By – Jim Horning

“Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.”

“Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.”

Jim Horning

Jim Horning actually said that this quote originally came from Mulla Nasrudin, even though he quoted it often. Regardless, the thought this provoked out of me was profound.

In some ways this is saying that in order to be good at anything, first you have to be bad at it. If you can really let that settle in and take root, it can be quite freeing. This belief can give you freedom to just try without fear of judgment, or at least the knowledge that judgment is most often from those who are afraid to try themselves.

I’m not sure that this is a quote I would put up on a sticky on my mirror…but it sure as hell makes me feel better about my future because of the mistakes I know I’ve made in the past.

I won’t let my mistakes haunt me, I will make them help me.

How about you?

Quotes to Live By – Winston Churchill

Let this one simmer for a bit…

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

Winston Churchill

Let that simmer for a bit.

Perhaps this is my chance at a successful website. It’s probably my 3rd or 4th over the years and I know that I have ways I can contribute to this big blue ball we call earth. Hoping I can start that here with you.
