My Faves #2

SOME LITTLE GEMS FOR YOU!

KINDNESS AND COURAGE.

Life is mostly froth and bubble
Two things stand like stone;
Kindness in another's trouble;
Courage in your own.

Adam Lindsay Gordon.

ON THE OFFICE WALL.

It is easy enough to be pleasant,
When life flows along like a song,
But the man worthwhile
Is the man who can smile,
When everything goes dead wrong.
When the whole blamed world seems gone to pot,
And business on the bum,
A lifted chin and a two-cent grin
Help some, my boy, help some!

   
Where can I find some positive quotes about Failure?

Failure

Don't fear failure:

"Keep on beginning and failing. Each time you fail, start all
over gain, and you will grow stronger until have accomplished
a purpose--not the one you began with perhaps, but one you'll
be glad to remember."
--Anne Sullivan

"Good people are good because they've come to wisdom through
failure."

greatly."

What is a Creed for Business and life?

Business Creed

I know that I have the ability to achieve my definite purpose in life; therefore, I demand of myself massive, immediate, intelligent, persistent, and consistent action towards its attainment. I here and now promise to render such action.
I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth, integrity and incredible value; therefore, I will engage in no transaction that does not benefit all whom it affects.
I succeed by attracting to myself the forces that are in harmony with my vision, and the partnership and cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me because of my willingness to serve others.
I eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, cynicism, anger, and competition by developing true love for myself and all humanity. I know that there is an unlimited supply of goodness in my universe and that a negative attitude towards others can never bring me success. I compel others to believe in me, because I believe in them and in myself.
This is my creed and my quest. To never stop climbing to the top, to always keep growing and moving forward, to always scale endless peaks of possibility and to fulfill my destiny. I KNOW that my spirit's sole purpose is for fuller expansion and expression -- that I am dying if not growing. Therefore, I learn, grow, and expand my comfort zone each and every day.
I believe in, and commit to progressive advancement, growth and improvement (P.A.G.I.).
I AM the power. I AM the magic. I AM unstoppable. I AM a winner. I promise to always be true to myself, because I AM a child of the creator and a master of my universe. I AM responsible for making a positive difference in the world and to the quality of life in it.

Where can I find positive poetry?

Take the time.

Take Some Time

Take some time to smell the flowers
As you walk the paths of life.
Take some time to ease the tensions
From the challenges and the strife.

Take some time to hear the birds sing
As they usher in the dawn.
Though the day be just emerging,
Too soon it will be gone.

Take some time to watch a sunrise,
Now and then a sunset too.
Just be sure that seeking pleasure
Isn't all you ever do.

Take some time to count your blessings,
Though you feel they're not that great.
You will find they're more abundant
Than you thought, at any rate.

Take some time to banish hatred
When and where you can.
Just detest man's evil ways
And not your fellow man.

Take some time to love your children
Every moment you are free.
The benefits exceedeth
A university degree.

Take some time to love your neighbor
And even more important still,
Take some time to love yourself
Or not many others will.

And if you don't like that image
Of yourself that others see,
Take some time to make some changes,
Be the best that you can be.

Take some time to help another
Who you think might need a hand.
You will find the satisfaction
Leaves you feeling sort of grand.

Take some time to live by virtue
In the best way that is known,
And respect the rights of others
As equal to your own.

Take some time to just appreciate
The fact that you are here,
And to know that Higher Power
And to trust It without fear.

If you do these things with diligence
You will eventually be glad.
If you don't attempt to do them
You may one day wish you had.

Although this no doubt could impose
Upon your time for seeking wealth,
There should be little question
That it could improve your health.

And though you might not be as wealthy
Nor drive so fine a car,
You'll find you will be richer
In other ways by far.

we settle for the superficial.

To health and to sickness, to riches and to poverty,
To freedom and to slavery
It is we who rule these things,

what you most need to learn
*
You are led through your lifetime
by the inner learning creature,
the playful spiritual being
that is your real self

before you're certain
you don't have anything to learn from them

what are some positive quotes on avoiding temptation?

Temptation

AVOID THE TEMPTATION to get rich quick.
Everybody wants everything instantly - instant rice, instant pudding, instant success - served in pablum form. My father was from Germany, and he said, "Always take time to be an apprentice and learn the whole job." I did this . . . and it worked!

AVOID THE TEMPTATION to take shortcuts.
Taking shortcuts cutting corners is a character flaw. You will be building on sand, and it will surely collapse. It always has. It always will. AVOID THE TEMPTATION to believe that "The grass is greener on the other side of the fence." We need to stay focused on where we are now, what we are doing now, our present opportunity, our present job, our present activity. We need to be able to make our present responsibilities work, whatever price we have to pay.

AVOID THE TEMPTATION to quit too soon.
History books, story books, and movies are filled with illustrations and parables of people who quit "three feet too soon digging for gold." Just one more try to complete an invention; just one more call to make a sale.

COLLECTIVELY WHAT DO ALL THESE TEMPTATIONS CAUSE?

They cause you to . . .
1. Lose sight of your goals,
2. Develop a lack of confidence, and
3. Suffer from an eroding self-esteem.

HOW DO YOU AVOID THIS?
1. Commit to a singleness of purpose.
2. Set and put into writing specific and clearly defined goals.
3. Outline exact action steps you must take to achieve your goals.
4. Repeat daily affirmations to support your goals.
5. Form a support group of your spouse, friends, associates, and work partners.
6. Create an accountability factor.

the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are
incomplete like a book in two volumes of which
the first has been lost. That is what I imagine
love to be: incompleteness in absence."

the wise."

How do I embrace change?

Deal with change

We are living in an exciting age of unprecedented change. Today's accelerated rate of change presents us with unique challenges and opportunities. When change brings success, keep your ego from getting out of hand. When the change is negative, use your sense of humor to get through it. Once you learn to handle change, you can take your skills, talents, and abilities and help others change. Let's look at four ways to enhance your mastery of change.

No. 1 Don't Fight It.
The natural tendency is to protect what you know and value, what has become familiar and comfortable. Unfortunately the world will change with or without you. So you must adapt again and again. You make your life so much more complicated when you fight the change. You cause yourself stress and can actually become ill. Remember the old Serenity Prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

No. 2 You Don't Have to Like the Change.
No one ever said you have to like the changes you are experiencing. However, you do have to understand them so you can progress. Study, explore, and read everything you can about the current matters that affect your perception and handling of change. Life is not always about "liking". It is about doing the best you can, with what you you've got and getting on with it--right now!

No. 3 Know What to Defend Against Change.
There are some things we should resist changing because change does not always translate into better. Change for the sake of change alone can destroy valuable situations, assets, and relationships. Many values deserved to be defended. Ask yourself what you will change and what you will defend.

No. 4 Have a Sense of Humor.
Humor can give you a momentary "emotional vacation." A sense of humor can conquer pretense, and diffused anger and hostility.

Fun

"Work hard at several projects. That way, no matter what is
going wrong, something will be going right."
-- Donna Hanover

"If you can get nothing better out of the world, get a good
dinner out of it, at least."
--Herman Melville (in Moby Dick)

"I searched through rebellion, drugs, diet, mysticism,
religion, intellectualism, and much more, only to find that
truth is basically simple and feels good, clear and right."
--Chick Corea

   
Where can I find some positive quotes about Being myself?

Know yourself

"To know oneself, one should assert oneself."
--Albert Camus

"Live as if you like yourself, and it may happen."
--Marge Piercy

"Friends are lost by calling often and calling seldom."
--Scottish proverb

Don't give in to despair:

Strive to be in a position to do it your way:

"I don't want to be a passenger in my own life."
--Diane Ackerman

"No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings."
--William Blake

Where can I find positivity?

I believe in you

I want to tell you that I believe in you;
I believe in your mind
And all the dreams, intelligence,
And determination within you.
You can accomplish anything.
You have so much open to you.
So, please, don't give up on what you want
From life or from yourself.
Please don't put away the dreams
Inside of you.
You have the power to make them real.
You have the power to make yourself
Exactly what you want to be.
Believe in yourself the way I do
And nothing will be beyond your reach.
