Chaos tests Character

Blog quote #1124... 
"Necessity may well be called the mother of invention, but calamity is the test of integrity." -Samuel Richardson-     
It's easy being a good person when things are going well. When the chips get down or a rough spell comes upon us is when the true character of people will either shine or go bromidic. Superb observation here by Mr Richardson.

2 excellent Leadership traits...

Blog quote #1123... 
"A good leader takes a little more than his/her share of the blame, and a little less share of the credit." -Arnold Glasgow-     
Humility is one of the top and more sought after qualities in a leader. Not far behind is the ability to appreciate others and recognize people on a consistent basis. 
Less about the boss. More about his/her people.

On Bravery and Fears...

Blog quote #1122... 
"Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death." -General Omar Bradley-     
Wait a minute. At first blush doesn't this seem a tad twisted up? Don't we associate bravery with being tough, not scared, will do/try anything?
Perhaps one and three above are valid, but even the bravest of people have fears. What makes them brave is that they press on and just push through their fears, not letting them bring things to a screeching halt. 
Food for thought on 'fear.' Look it in the eye and push through it. You'll be amazed how much bigger and stronger you are than your fears.

Importance of JOY...

Blog quote #1121... 
"The future, higher evolution will belong to those who live in joy, share joy, and who spread joy." -Torkom Saraydarian-     
Big time forward thinking here. The quicker we can get away from greed, selfishness, and rude or indifferent behavior, the better chance of survival we all have. 
It's all about love, and peace, and joy. Perhaps each of us can spread a bit more of that today, this week, and in general, going forward?

on Dreams and Realities...

Blog quote #1120... 
"Reality can destroy the  dream--why shouldn't the dream destroy reality?" -George Moore, novelist 1852-1933-    
We believe it should, and, it can! And you say?

Playon Words- on 'What Counts'

The VALUE of Mistakes...?

Blog quote #1118...  
"Growth, character, and enjoyment of life comes from our mistakes. A child that is not permitted to fall will never learn to walk,  for walking is a succession of fails." -Dr.Frank Crane-    
Mistakes, trials and errors, testing the waters, and pushing ourselves beyond comfort zones. That is how most of us educate, grow, and improve. 
The people that aren't making mistakes and trying anything new, likely aren't learning much or advancing themselves.

For maximum efficiency...

Blog quote #1116...  
"The quickest way to do many things- is to do only one thing at a time." -Anonymous-    
Multi-tasking  is overrated. And due to the lack of focus (the cat that chases two mice catches none) it leads to inefficiencies, mistakes, and quite frankly, not our best work. 
Pick one thing, and concentrate on that.

Rekindling the Spirit...

Blog quote #1115...  
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit."  -Albert Schweitzer-    
Anyone give you a lift or a pick me up as of late? If not give a shout out to the Grand Poobah of Smiles. If I can help you a bit, I will...

On too many Laws, and Commandments...

Blog quotes #1112 and 1113...
"Someone has tabulated that we have 35 million laws on the books to enforce the ten commandments." -Bert Masterson- 
"I've been told since the beginning of civilization, millions and millions of laws have not improved on the ten commandments, one bit!" -President Ronald Reagan-  

Can anyone say overkill? 
The lesson here? Keep things elementary my friends! Sometimes the basics work just fine and adding to them just complicates and convolutes things more.

On Angels, and Humility...

Blog quote #1111...  
"It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels." -Saint Augustine-   
Anyone know of a better character trait to have than humility? Obviously, this is debateable, but a humble person is usually a well liked and welcome guest anywhere, anytime.
As an FYI--It is said when you see a group of 1's  such as 11 or 111 or 1111, the angels are near. This is good. Something to just be aware of. As of late, I see them everywhere. On the alarm clock, mile markers, signs,scoreboards--it's incredible. Quite comforting as well. Have a blessed day.

As it says, s-i-m-p-l-e.  Know, go, and do.
