Live and Learn and Pass It On

Regardless of how much we know, we are given new opportunities everyday for growth and discovery. School is always in session and life challenges us to excel at being both the enthusiastic student and the inspired teacher. With that said, below are a few pearls of wisdom I’d like to share:

  • I’ve learned that a person is only as good as his or her word.
  • I’ve learned that you can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes. After that, you’d better know something.
  • I’ve learned that a good reputation is a person’s biggest asset.
  • I’ve learned that being fired can be the best thing that can happen to you.
  • I’ve learned that the more creative you are, the more things you notice.
  • I’ve learned that the great challenge of life is to decide what’s important and to disregard everything else.
  • I’ve learned that nothing of value comes without effort.
  • I’ve learned that anticipation is often better than the real thing.
  • I’ve leaned that generous people seldom have emotional and mental problems.
  • I’ve learned that in every face-to-face encounter, regardless of how brief, we leave something behind.
  • I’ve learned that children and grandparents are natural allies.
  • I’ve learned that even when you schedule a doctor’s appointment at 8:00 a.m., you still have to wait an hour.
  • I’ve learned that education, experience and memories are three things no one can take away from you.
  • I’ve learned that I don’t have to be perfect for my family to love me.
  • I’ve learned that if you wait for all conditions to be perfect before you act, you’ll never act.
  • I’ve learned that whatever I love to do, I do well.
  • I’ve learned that there are people who love you dearly but just don’t know how to show it.
  • I’ve learned that self-pity is a BIG waste of time.
  • I’ve learned that the worse pain is watching someone else in pain.
