Ten sentences to change your life



[vimeo id=”55972513″ width=”625″ height=”352″]

The power of the spoken word is tremendous. With our words we can encourage or tear down. We can motivate or discourage. The personal practice of carefully choosing our own words and ‘inner talk’ is staggering. Here are ten sentences to improve your life. #1 “People aren’t against you; they are for themselves.” The sooner we understand human nature the better we are able to relate to others. #2 “Climb mountains not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world.” Don’t achieve for the sake of success alone but to also gain perspective. #3 “You learn more from failure than from success; don’t let it stop you. Failure builds character.” We learn best from the school of hard knocks. It’s how we are wired.  #4 “The most dangerous risk…

  1. What a great video. Super way to start the NewYear

  2. My favorite quote that seems appropriate to our industry:
    “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination”.
    Jimmy Dean

  3. “There is nothing wrong with having nothing to say unless you insist on saying it”

  4. Happy new year to all!!

    The first sentence is what being a cynic is all about, questioning the motives of others. Some who is paranoid thinks others are against them.

    While interesting many of the quotations run counter to what I believe. A self-centered life is a wasted one.

    Perhaps the most important was the one about failure. Learning from while not dwelling on it is an art few achieve.

    • I knew I should not have written this comment after just a little eggnog. The second sentence after the salutation should read: “Someone who is paranoid thinks others are against them.”

      The last sentence should be improved to say: “Learning from failure without dwelling on it is an art few achieve.”

  5. Thanks Shannon, excellent foundation principlest to live by. I have a lot of fun with #4 interacting with seniors and exploring their creativity and gifts and how they are using them…and if not, why not!

    One of my favorites, “When I start the day, I have a choice: do I want to start it with a crispy cream donut or a dill pickle? I prefer the crispy cream donut – God didn’t make no robots:)

  6. The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job security is gone. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!

  7. Shannon great words and food for thought. I will use it in my training sessions. Have a great New Year.
