Lead by example

Instead of correcting people or suggesting improvements, try to lead by example. Practice what you preach.

Few things are harder to put up with than a good example.

All work and no play…

Work and play are words used to describe the same thing under differing conditions.

Mark Twain

I can’t stand people who dislike work.

Those guys have not understand what work is about. It is about doing something you like and you’re good at and getting paid for it rather than working your ass of like a slave for someone you don’t like. If your work does not make you happy you should look out for an alternative.

If you don’t like your job, get a new one, then quit!

Just be awesome

Few things are harder to put up with than a good example.

Mark Twain

Just live an awesome life. Don’t brag about it, don’t teach other people lessons, don’t criticize too much, instead just have fun and be a fun person.

That will actually motivate others a lot more to be awesome and give them way more to think about than stupid talks about a good moral attitude or lifestyle.

About lies

If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.

Mark Twain

You can see this as extreme as you personally want but fact is: The more you speak the truth, the less problems your brain will have in conversations. Always thinking “Shit, what am I allowed to talk about” is stressful and a lot of work. Don’t make it so hard for you, just be honest and don’t lie around. There’s nothing wrong with making mistakes or not knowing things, but there surely is something wrong with lying about is as long as you can.

Live a proud and awesome life!

Let us so live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.

Mark Twain

If you died right now, would that affect the world? Do you have an impact on more people than your close family? If not, start to be awesome, dare to be great!

People should apreciate and value your company, they should like you and being with you and they should be sad when you are no longer around. This is not about ego or social value, it is merely about this simple equation:

People enjoy awesomeness therefore people will enjoy you as long as you are awesome.

Be polite, be friendly, do awesome stuff, support others, be kind without wanting payback, be open, be honest and after all don’t forget your goals and ambition in life!

Do the right thing!

Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

Mark Twain

It is that simple.

Well in theory it is. Nevertheless just make sure you always aim for the right thing to do and you will be fine.
