I developed a serious interest in other people ... in less than 6 decades.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

From a very early age, I noticed people making mistakes. I didn't just notice it. Their mistakes scraped in my ears, seared my eyes and caused me all sorts of other discomfort, anxiety and annoyance. 

But, in less than 6 decades I managed to get beyond the constant barrage of other people's errors...and, when all the dust cleared, I found myself truly interested in other people.

Even those not blessed with natural, pleasing personalities can learn to think and bite their tongues.

You can choose to adjust your personality so it is more pleasing and less annoying. Sometimes, the choice involves biting your tongue.

When you annoy people you don't make money...[unless you happen to be a sitcom actor or a Don Rickles clone]

People are 'selflings': that's a good rather than a bad thing...so focus on yourself...regularly.

About that suffix 'ling': yes, often pejorative; but, not always.

So, cut other selflings some slack, as they will have to do for you if you are to achieve your desires.

Personality gives you a chance. What you do with it is what really counts.

Your personality may take a back seat to what you do...especially when the going gets tough.

We judge others by what they do.

We trust others by what they do. 

Others do the same to us.

Better to climb mountains in your mind than on the back of your donkey-ego.

May your molehills remain molehills and may your ego choose molehills over mountain climbing.

Refuse to allow your ego to join the mule trains climbing those mountains!
