Quotes #298-299-300

I thought it would be special to get to 300 quotes before the year is out so here are 3 quotes on STARTING NEW...

Quote #298...
"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today, and make a new ending."
-Maria Robinson-

How good, and how true is that?

Quote #299...
Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don't waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.
-Og Mandino-

Og was one of the best..If you ever get the chance, read his book a 'A Better Way To Live'. It's a real eye opener.

Quote # 300...

"2010 is all yours, baby."
-The Universe(

Now there are 5 powerful words that say a mouthful.

Welcome to the NEW DECADE. May it be all you desire it to be.

Quote #297, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes blog quote #297...

"In the new year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, but never in want."
-Irish proverb-

May your friends be many and your problems few. When you extend your hand, remember that to give(help) is much more pleasurable than to receive.

As Zig Ziglar says, "if you help enough other people get what they want in life, you will eventually get what you want in life." I think that is one of the best statements ever from one of this planet's best motivators ever. Truly a genuine real deal guy as well. I know, because I had the pleasure of meeting his family and him for a half hour conversation backstage.

End the decade with the favor of a helping hand. Can you think of any better way to go out?

That's my view...what say you?

Quote #296, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes blog quote #296...

"To get the full value of a joy, you must first have someone to divide it."
-Mark Twain-

Isn't that odd? To get the full value of something you have to split it in half with someone? It's one of those statements that seem to contradict, yet they are true, and they make sense. Any English majors out there know what these are called?

On similar lines, Lenard Nimoy, aka Mr Spock of Star Trek said "The more we share, the more we have." How can that be that when we give something away, we actually have MORE? It's one of those life miracles. Can't explain it, but I love that it works this way.

Back to Twain's quote... isn't that so true, something about doing something or accomplishing something, it's so much better if there is someone to tell, or to experience it rather than doing it alone. Sharing brings great joy. Well done Mr. Twain for pointing this out to us.

Quote #295, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes blog quote #295...

"Live everyday as if it's your day it will be."

What a great quote. It's succinct, positive, motivating, realistic, yet a bit depressing, all in one quote. If you utilize the quote properly, I think it can have a very moving and beneficial effect on you.

Can't wait to hear what you say on this one, fellow readers.

Quote #294, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes blog quote #294...

"Tsze-Kung asked "is there one word which may serve as a rule of practice for all one's life?" The master said "is not reciprocity such a word? What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others."


Just another way to explain the Golden Rule. I found this to be very creative to shrink it all down to just one simple word.

Reciprocity. Hmm... it does make sense. That should be a very powerful single word to remember, in treating other human beings.

That's my view...what say you?

Quote #293, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes blog quote #293...

"It is more important to click with people,than to click with the shutter."
-Alfred Eisenstadt, photographer-

This is a secret shared by a very successful photographer. What a gem of advice this is. For budding young photographers, they'd be wise to take a "picture" of that tip and lock it in their memory bank. For everyone in general, pretty heady wisdom as well.

Social skills are worthy. The ability to get along with people is priceless.

Quote #292, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes blog quote #292...

"Have some fun, help some people, make some money."
-Jude Murray-

I was talking business with Jude the other day and while kicking around some ideas, we came up with some interesting possibilities. We got to laughing and the conversation was one of those that felt like we discussed some great ideas, while having fun. As we came to the end of the chat, she closed with that line.

I thought it was a pretty sensible statement. Practical too. Seemed like there was quite a bit 'right' with having fun and helping people while making a buck, so the fun and helping people could continue.

That's my view...what say you?

Quote #291, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes blog quote #291...

"We inherit our relatives and our features and may not escape them; but we can select our clothing and our friends. Let us be careful that both fit us."
-Volney Streamer-

Great analogy. Clothes that don't fit are bad because they look awkward, they don t feel right, and if I may, they lack your attention to detail. Note that I am excluding comfortable clothes and sweats when just hanging out or otherwise appropriate.

Friends as well, should be chosen to fit. Note the word CHOSEN. You do have a choice in who you hang out with. Make sure that you enjoy their company and they add to your plate, not weigh it down with hassles, problems and constant negativity. Be looking for friends that fit, that compliment each other.
