It’s about attitude

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude form achieving hist goal. Nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong attitude.

Principles like a rock

In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.

Embrace differences

I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.

Wisdom?

Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.

Thomas Jefferson

Here is a small story about the little lies in life that just don’t work out:

A woman rushed into a butcher shop at the end of the day. “I need a chicken to cook for dinner this evening,” she said.
“Well, you’re in luck,” the butcher replied. “I have a nice little bird right here. It weighs two pounds.”
The woman frowned. “That’s not quite large enough. Do you have another?”
The butcher walked into the freezer, muttering under his breath. He emerged moments later with the same chicken. “There’s also this one. It weighs three pounds.”
The woman fingered through the money in her purse and said, “Alright then, I’ll take both.”
The butcher turned red. He had only the one small chicken and a lot of explaining to do! He’d just learned the hard way that even the tiniest white lies have consequences.

About your attitude…

Nothing can STOP the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can HELP the man with the wrong mental attitude.

Thomas Jefferson

It’s all about your mental attitude. Stop whining and don’t hope for other people’s help if your mind ist just fucked up.

Nobody can help you – no matter how great the effort may be – as long as you do not let them. Try nurturing a pet that has just decided not to eat any more without inflicting pain. It won’t work!

So get your head straight and problems will vanish or even better they won’t appear to begin with.
