This is one of my favorite books. It is a book with "words of wisdom". I thought I would post a few of the "Gems" from this book written by Andy Andrews. So as not to overwhelm YOU, my readers, I will keep the post to only one per week.
"Listen to me now. You are where you are because of your thinking. Your thinking dictates your decisions. Decisions are choices."
The words - "It's not my fault!" have been symbolically written on the gravestones of unsuccessful people ever since Eve took her first bite of the Apple. Until a person takes responsibility for where he is, there is no basis for moving on. The bad news is that the past was in your hands, but the good news is, that the future, my friend, is also in your hands."
Yes, things happen to us that are often not in our control. However, many, or perhaps the majorty of things in life are in our control.
"Seek Wisdom. Seek wisdom. Wisdom waits to be gathered. She cannoit be bartered or sold. She is a gift for the diligent. And only the diligent will find her. The lazy man - the stupid man - never even looks. Though wisdom is available to many, she is found by few. Seek wisdom. Find her, and you will find success and contentment."
