Celebrity junk, yoo tewb, the jungle, me and you #3.
"Crap thinkin’ equals crap living”. Me.
Also, as well, and, 'cause.
“Better thinking equals better living”. Me
Howdy, read, learn, grow,
Grab a coffee and read a while.............no charge.
This is the last post of three, that contain, proverbs and quotes.
They were selected, by me, for you to think about and use to, amplify, guide and simplify, your probably less than satisfactory life.
Yep! Proverbs and quotes. Don’t laugh!!!!
It seems to me that too many misguided people allow their mind and their life to become filled with and overwhelmed by crap stuff.
Stuff that we’re told we just gotta’ know or do to be a ‘somebody’.
Ninety nine per cent, (99%), of it is, trivial, time wasting, time stealing, life stealing, bull excrement.
Personally, for myself, in all honesty:
I ain’t bleedin’ well interested if celebrity A is going out with celebrity B.
I’ll never think, "The latest craze of putting a video on Yooo Toob, of your dog dancing is a great idea I’ll do it too”.
I don’t spend even one second of my day thinking, “I can’t wait to know which celebrity will l get kicked out of the jungle this evening”.
I was once a freakin’ willing victim of this, ‘fill your mind and life with puke inducing garbage’ non - sense.
Complete waste of my mind - space and my thought - energy
So……… I figured that to live better I needed to think better.
I just had to discover better 'food for my thoughts.
Information that’ll actually make my life, more meaningful, more ass - kickingly authentic.
Eventually I identified two, quality, limitless, timeless, sources that offered all that I needed.
I now always got better stuff to think about:
Proverbs and quotes. Don’t laugh now either!!!!
I’ve been doing this for several years now and it has really guided me to become, more focussed and less confused, about how I think and ‘live’ my life.
So then …….a proverb is:
“A simple and concrete saying, popularly known and repeated, that expresses a truth based on common sense or experience”. (Wikipedia)
Can’t argue with that.
“Quotes by respected thinkers have the same, get life - smart thinking advice as proverbs”. (Me)
Wanna argue with this? Hope not.
A proverb example:
“Two heads are better than one".
(Making a decision about anything is usually better with the help of another person). My version.
Makes sense…… yeh?
Below, in Part 1 are, some proverbs, in Part 2 and Part 3 some quotes, that I think are worth you applying to your life.
Well …..any life really.
Read them all, then choose and write down one proverb from Part 1. Write it on a ‘Post It Note’ thingy, stick it, on the fridge, on the bathroom mirror, and start thinkin’ n’ doin’ that for ten days.
Do the same thing for a quote from Part 2 and Part 3.
That's thirty days and three new ways to learn to think and live different.
Rinse and repeat for as long as you want. Some of it'll stick.
It'll change your thinking and .............. your life.
It works for me.
Part 1. Proverbs
"Practice makes perfect”.
(You have to practice anything to become good at it).
"Too many cooks spoil the broth".
(Jobs and projects should have just one or two strong leaders).
"Necessity is the mother of invention".
(When you really gotta’ do something, you’ll find a way).
Don't put all your eggs in one basket".
(Have a backup plan).
"Don't count your chickens before they hatch".
(Don't start planning what you'll do after you succeed. Wait until you have succeeded then go ape).
"If you want something done right, do it yourself".
(Do important things yourself. Only you know exactly what you expect).
Part 2. Quotes from respected thinkers.
“I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took any excuse”. – Florence Nightingale
“Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment”. – Oprah Winfrey
“Nothing in the world can take the place of perseverance. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost legendary. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Perseverance and determination alone are omnipotent”. – Calvin Coolidge
“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can”.
– Arthur Ashe
“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much”. – Jim Rohn
Part 3. Quotes from Mega Thinker, Harry Stottle.
"Confidence is the mark of a hopeful disposition".
"The brave man is the mean between the coward and the rash man".
"Excellent deliberation attains what is good, which is the aim of the man of practical wisdom".
Finally a few words that might help.
As Batman said to me the other day. "Holy mackerel Phil that's some awesome stuff"!
Oh...... no, no, P.S. this week either. Same as the previous two posts in this series. I like to be consistent.
