Mistakes become demons only when they know we haven't learned their lessons.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We give life to our mistakes when we allow them to get the better of us. As we worry about them, we give them power...the power of demons. When we learn the lessons they are trying to teach us, our mistakes no longer possess the power of demons. Objective thought is the key to learning lessons from our mistakes. Objective thought does its best work when our emotions are under our control. 

 

When we were newborn babes, we somehow knew the best way to get what we wanted was kicking and screaming.

When we were newborn babes, we somehow knew the best way to get what we wanted was kicking and screaming.

At first, really nice bigger people encouraged us to take action.

Then, of great surprise to us, many bigger people began a life-long assault aimed at proving otherwise. 

When troubles consume your thoughts, remember "Your tooth will cease aching if your house is afire..."

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

"Your tooth will cease aching if your house is afire..." Frank Channing Haddock made that point in his 1910 classic, 'Power of Will'. 

Long before the medical sciences confirmed the concepts of neuroplasticity, people knew the awesome power & virtually unlimited possibilities available to the human mind. 

If emergencies can remove the pain of toothaches then properly trained minds can do the same thing.

Our minds have the ability to remove the 'negative feelings and thoughts' we encounter during day-to-day life.

You cannot be worried, be angry, be frustrated and make money.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

You can be habitually worried, angry, and frustrated...many people prove that.

But, how many successful people have you met who make habits of worry, anger, and frustration?

***

Worry, when held in controlled quantity, can motivate.

Anger has the ability to generate action...mostly destructive, but occasionally productive.

Frustration: the worst of the three; unproductive, inactive, unhealthy.

***

If you look into a mirror and see a worried, angry, frustrated face, you are peering into the eyes of a person who will never be wealthy. 

...on the other hand, you just may find that face smiles at you, laughs, gets into a better mood, and accomplishes something constructive.


For one reason or another we human beings were born with egos...so be it...don't fight it...live & learn with it.

Egos - Can't live with them; can't live without them.

Egos - life's biggest challenges.

You gotta go the first mile before you start talkin' about going the extra mile.

The Thinkin' Behind The Tweet

Everyone knows, "Talk's cheap". Yet, some people forget it. They get all carried away talking about going extra miles when they haven't managed to complete the first mile. They have taken some steps, cut some corners, etc., however, they haven't got that first mile done yet.

Clichés are cheaper than most talk: Actions are far more telling; Achieved goals speak volumes.
