I Don’t Want To Be A Hypocrite

“We talked of intolerance, while we were intolerant ourselves” ~Anon.

If I had a nickel for every time I bitched about somebody doing something that I had been guilty of doing many times myself… I’d be rich.

I get mad when people lie, as if I’ve never lied.

I get mad when people are selfish, as if I’ve never been selfish.

I expect you to understand me, when I’m unwilling to try to understand you.

The goal for today: stop setting standards for others to live up to & start practicing personal responsibility instead!

Have a great day everybody!

Strength

“I’m not strong enough” ~idk.

Someone said to me: “I don’t think I’m strong enough to handle this on my own.” & I said: “You’re not… neither am I & neither is anyone else.”

We all have a source of Power deep down inside of ourselves.

It doesn’t matter if you call it God or inner strength or whatever other name you choose to give it… it’s there.

The goal for today: tap into this Power, stay connected to it on a daily basis & utilize it to solve my problems & yours!

Have a great day everybody!

That’s What Matters Most

Just because someone comes from a good home, has financial security or a high IQ, doesn’t necessarily mean they have it all together & are happy.

I know because I was one of them, but the selfish lifestyle that I was living trumped all of the good that I grew up in.

Money, titles & test scores aren’t the deciding factors in whether or not we are good people… how we treat people is.

The goal for today: have a genuine concern for the welfare of others… because that’s what matters most!

Have a great day everybody!

Care With Love… Not Anger

“I only get angry at you because I care” ~idk.

I’m sorry, but that’s just not true.

I get angry because things aren’t going ‘my’ way.

Only selfishness can lead to anger… not because I said so, but because it is a Universal Law of Life.

I can only get angry when I believe that I am going to be negatively affected by someone else’s actions or decisions.

The goal for today: tell myself the Truth about my anger so I can overcome it & be genuinely helpful to the troubled soul that needs my help… not my anger!

Have a great day everybody!

A Thought… Or The Right Thought?

“Think before you speak” ~idk.

I agree, but there’s a catch.

We always think before we speak… actually, it’s impossible to speak without thinking first.

The catch is to have the ‘Right’ thought before I speak.

If I think: ‘It’s your fault I feel this way’… I’m bound to say something foolish & inaccurate.

If I think: ‘It’s dishonest of me to believe that you can make me feel’… I’ve got a better chance of saying something sane & honest.

The goal for today: don’t just think before I speak… have the Right thought before I speak!

Have a great day everybody!

Think Right… Act Right

“All causation is mental” ~Emmet Fox.

What the hell does that mean?

It means that everything that has ever happened, in the history of mankind, happened in someone’s mind first!

All of the problems that we are faced with in the world today are a direct result of wrong thinking.

For example: Is it a good idea to drink & drive?

Of course not!

Why do people do it?

Because they aren’t thinking clearly.

The goal for today: learn how to think properly… because it is the only REAL solution to any problem!

Have a great day everybody!

Mustard Seed

With just a mustard seed of faith, we can accomplish some incredibly positive, constructive, amazing things!

Unfortunately… a mustard seed of doubt can do the same thing in the opposite direction.

I’ve been on both sides of this fence & the grass is definitely always greener on the faith side of it & that’s where I want to stay.

The goal for today: have faith in God… have faith in myself… have faith in others… because working together, we can move mountains!

Have a great day everybody!
