Quotes of the day... 8/7/15

If you find yourself worrying, or being 
negative about how things may turn out,
stop and switch your focus.  

Happiness is a state of mind. 
It sounds cliché, but it's true. 
If you want to feel happier and more positive 
then you must focus on something that 
makes you feel happy and positive! ... 
There's always something to be happy about!

Approach your life in this way 
and your whole demeanor will change, 
you'll begin to attract good news, 
happy circumstances, and more positive people. 

Remember, even when it's really difficult, 
it's always your choice to focus 
on the roses or the manure!

Safe Zone

If you're going to stop for a squirrel on the road 
you must first be traveling at a reasonable speed, 
not too slow, not too fast, 
and must be present in the moment 
for the undistracted reaction. 
Sounds like good advice for all life situations :)

Men who know themselves are no longer fools.
They stand on the threshold of the door of wisdom.

training them, we train ourselves.
