Seize The Day

1)Failure is no disgrace. Low aim is.

2)Never ask anybody to do anything you would not do yourself.

3)5 hard lessons in life

– Always take responsibility for yourself.

– Always read the manual

– Treat yourself

– Always let the people in yourlife know how you feel about them

– If you want it enough, you will get it.

4) If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it’s yours. If it doesn’t, it never was. We do not possess anything in the world, least of all other people. We only imagine that we do. Our friends, our lovers, our spouses, even our children are not ours; they belong only to themselves. Possessive and controlling friendships and relationships can be as harmful as neglect.

5) Dont leave success to luck – use every hour that God gives you and never give up. Success is a mix of hard work and seizing every opportunity that comes your way.

6) Be true to yourself, but live and let life.

Whatever you do in life, be yourself as long as you don’t hurt anyone else whilst doing so. But do not hurt others by your own standards, criteria or philosophy.

7) When you say something, speak clearly, simply and without hesitation. Above all, never begin by saying “Umm…”

8)Make peace before sleeping.

9)People are the size they make you feel. Great people make you feel great.

10) Have the courage to apologise. No matter how high a position you have obtained, you will still make mistakes.

11)Always make the effort to attend a funeral.

12) Horseracing tip : Back the third favourite each-way in any long distance non-handicap hurdle race where the favourites starts odds-on in a field of between eight and 12 runners

13) Be different.

14) Never give up, no matter what is going on,

Never give up.

Develop the heart – too much energy is spent these days in

developing the mind instead of the heart.

Be compassionate – not just to your friends, but to everyone.

Be compassionate.

Work for peace and, I say again,

Never give up.

No matter what is happening.

No matter what is going around you.

Never give up.

15) No relationship is ever wasted.

16)First things first.

17) Keep promises and be charming.

18)Be careful about taking free advice, it’s usually worth roughly what you’ve paid for.

19)Never say never and never say always.

20)Make sure that everyone you love, knows it.

21) Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticise others.

22) Live according to your own conscience

23) Nothing is boring

24) It’s always the person in the wrong who loses their temper.

25) Dont take yourself too seriously. If you can laugh at yourself, it’s easier to learn from your mistakes.

26)Avoid pointless activities.

27) Always tell the truth. Telling the truth is more practical. Lies, even well-meant, lead to more lies. Before long, you will be in such a tangle you won’t remember what was true in the first place. At this point other people begin to realise that somewhere there’s a lie and begin to seek it out. When it’s found, it will look much worse for you than the truth would have been in the first place.

28) Never blame other poeple for the results of your own faulty judgement of them. Blame yourself and resolve not to make the same mistake twice. Save the energy you would have wasted on recriminations for taking productive counter-measures.

29) Always go the extra mile.

30) Try to love everyone.

31) Live every minute to it’s fullest.

32) Be nicer to your family than to strangers.

Be generous in your praise. Only criticise when you have no alternative.

Don’t believe what your partner says in anger.

Never hit your child.

33) Be honest in business.

34) Excuses are a waste of time – yours and other people’s.

If you either make nor accept excuses, you become completely reliable and ultimately useful to other people.

35) Never do anything irreversible.

36) It is much more important to know what you think about other people than worry about what they may or may not think about you.

37) It is impossible to control what happens to you. The only thing you can control is your attitude to it.

38)Don’t expect too much from another human being.

If one expects certain behaviour from other people one places oneself in a very vulnerable position, liable to disappointment and indeed annoyance. If one does not expect too much, then one is not disappointed and one can be joyous when one discovers, as one so often does, that others can be wonderful.

39) Always find time to sharpen your axe.

40) If you dont like the people you work with, you are in the wrong job.
