On Being Your Own Best Friend

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

It is not possible to be your own best friend when old beliefs about yourself–I’m old, too fat, too skinny, unlucky, too weak, cowardly, stupid etc keep entering your mind. These are old ideas you’ve allowed to hang around. The only way to get rid of this stuff is to condition your brain to latch onto the truth about who you really are.

The negative is only there because you don’t fight hard enough to keep it away.

There have been times when in a new situation–like with a group of people at a networking event, where I tell myself all sorts of things–you wore the wrong thing, why did you say that, or why didn’t you say something…I’ve beat myself up to the point where I can’t wait to get out of the place.

There is no place you can be where being your own best friend won’t work in your favor. If you are some place –like a work meeting, employee gathering, networking or some place else where you feel little sense of comfort, be okay with just being in the moment and soaking it all in. There is nothing you have to do as long as you are present. Take it all in, observe, smile and then when it’s over be proud that you kept your poise and made it through!

Best teachers

Saturday, January 30th, 2016

The difficult people in our lives are some of our best teachers.

We don’t have to like them.

We surely don’t have to keep them around.

But upon their exit we will know we’ve learned.

Once they’re gone it’s up to us to remember the lessons we were taught so well that we never need a refresher course.

Your Level Best

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

The man who has done his level best, and who is conscious that he has done his best, is a success, even though the world may write him down as a failure.
