Blog Quote #698 (Ask why?...)

Here's Blog Quote #698...(Ask why?...)
"When someone says no, ask 'why?' How else will you learn?
-Kathy Ireland-

Pretty smart advice here from the former Sports Illustrated  swim suit queen-pin.  Most successful people don't take no for an answer very easily. Persistence and ant like perseverance is a likely contributor to their lifetime achievements. 

Also, a good inquisitive attitude also helps. Maybe there is a darn good reason for the denial? Or perhaps it's a smokescreen that can easily be pressed through- for those willing to charge ahead. 

Either way, there is an opportunity to learn from the one who said no. Ask and see what they say. Certainly nothing bad will come out of the question. More likely, much good can and will result...from asking why/why not.

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

Here's Blog Quote #697...

"This moment, this day, is as good as any moment in all eternity. I shall make of this day, each moment of this day, a heaven on earth. This is my day of opportunity."

Not a bad way to think--upon waking up.

Every morning...this would be a heck of a good mindset to have. 
Don't you think?

Blog Quote #696...(Be careful what you wish for)

Here's Blog quote #696...
"Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they're yours."
-Richard Bach-

This relates to the old self fulfilling prophecy. The more you think something will happen, and talk about that same thing happening- it's not just likely to happen. It's very likely to happen.

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

Blog Quote #695...

Here's Blog Quote #695...
"Nothing is easier than saying words. Nothing is harder, than living them day after day."
-Arthur Gordon-

Do you know anyone who is full of hot air? Gibberish. Yonkey. They tell you one thing and never plan on acting it out. In other words, after one or two statements from them, you learn not to believe in what they say?

Unfortunately, I also  know many of these people. Too many. In fact it's a rarity to find humans, who do control their words to match their actions. Sad but true.

Let's all look for more people, to do as their words say.  What a concept, huh? Hold people, more accountable. Everyone wins. The world becomes a better place to live. 

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