Let’s start making some changes

It’s time for us as a people to start making some changes.

Let’s change the way we eat.

Let’s change the way we live.

And let’s change the way we treat each other.

You see, the old way wasn’t working so it’s on us to do what we gotta do to survive.

Expectation vs. Reality

When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.

Good company

Some cause happiness wherever they go, others whenever they go.

Hey! Listen!

I never learned anything whe I was talking.

Larry King

Listen a lot! People are full of useful informations, stories, lessons. Listen and make use of that. Be genuinely interested and enjoy people.

You are one of the lucky ones, embrace it!

We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones.

 

Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born.

The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Sahara.

Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton.

We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively outnumbers the set of actual people.

 

In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here. We privileged few, who won the lottery of birth against all odds, how dare we whine at our inevitable return to that prior state from which the vast majority have never stirred?

Make choices [picture]

I used to walk into a room full of people and wonder if they liked me…

Now I look around and wonder if I like them.

It is important to make your mind up about who you want to hang around with.

The people closest to you have the greates influence on your character, you should choose them wisely. It is not your job to please everybody, nor is it your job to please random people.

First thing: Please yourself by being yourself. Become comfortable with who you are or form your character untill you are comfortable and content with who you are and what you stand for. Then you can decide wether you like people or not on your own standards.

This is how you should determine who to hang out with and whose words to listen to. Don’t let others dictate your behaviour but make conscious choices and listen only to the word of people you respect and trust for good reasons.

He who tries to please everybody will never succeed and loose his integrity as well as his happiness along the way.

Understand people

The thing most people want is genuine understanding. If you can understand the feelings and moods of another person, you have something fine to offer.

Good rule of thumb

Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t.

Bill Nye

Well maybe not literally everyone know something you really want to know, but that does not matter. What matters is the idea to listen carefully. Always be open to people and their stories and never think you know enough. Breath information and knowledge like you breath air after a long dive!

Honesty

You have to be straight with people and your word has got to be your bond.
