Whenever you think people are withholding from you – praise, appreciation, assistance, loving care, and so on – give it to them. You don’t have it? Act as if you have it and it will come. Then, soon after you start giving, you will start receiving. You cannot receive what you don’t give.
Erhart tolle, A New Earth
“Setting an example is not the main means of influencing another, it is the only means.” – Albert Einstein
The masses are average. And by definition, we have a surplus of average.
Don’t be different just to be different. Be different to be better.
KINDNESS IS CONTAGIOUS
Try it out, give it to someone. What is something nice that you could do for a friend, family member or even a stranger today? Once you have thought of it, do it, and then move on to somebody else. Before long you’ll start seeing results, try it, it’s contagious.
Happiness comes from spiritual wealth,
not material wealth. Happiness comes from giving, not getting.
If we try hard, to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming to us also. To get joy, we must give it and to keep joy,
we must scatter it. ~ John Templeton ~
Never spend more than 10 percent of your time on the problem, and always spend at least 90 percent of your time on the solution.
Every successful person I know has the capacity to remain centered, clear and powerful in the midst of emotional “storms.”
Worry less. Smile more. Accept criticism. Take responsibility. Be quiet and listen. LOVE LIFE. Embrace change.
The bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you refuse to take the turn. -Unknown

“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him…We need not wait to see what others do.” – Mahatma Gandhi
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~ Steve Jobs
Boredom is the absence of a creative idea. But there is a simple cure – begin to think immediately of a better way to do something. The creative juices are within you but you must turn on the tap.
Those who are bored are not living; they are dying. When their heart stops beating, it will be a mere formality. The best way to do anything has never been thought of. Get on a creative improvement kick and jar others mentally into the same activity.” – Bob Proctor >> WATCH THIS VIDEO: http://ow.ly/p2jBF

Manage Yourself: your Most Important Employee
“1. Assess your strengths and weaknesses.
Once you’ve gotten an objective perspective on yourself from others, mentally stand back and ask yourself: “If I were managing this person, how would I use the strengths and work around the weaknesses?”
2. Set reasonable and stretch goals.
Have two sets of goals: a minimal set which represents what you can reasonably expect from yourself, and stretch goals that represent what’s difficult but still achievable.
In other words, the difference between what’s definitely reasonable and possibly achievable is time.
3. Stop micromanaging yourself.
However, while most people realize this, many people blithely micromanage their own activities.The cure is to think about the results you want rather than the tasks you should do.
4. Regularly evaluate performance.
If you fail to do this, and just depend upon your “gut feeling” of whether you’re performing the way you’d like, I guarantee you that you will eventually (and probably quickly) drift off course.
5. Manage your emotions.
Think of your emotions as “behaviors you do” in response to events. If you decide that you will “do” joy (i.e. enjoy) every day, you will.
6. Take responsibility for your decisions.
The flip side of decision-making, however, is taking responsibility for outcomes.While you do not have control over events, you do (and did) have control over the decisions that you made in response to those events. ” Source: Inc.com
