The Direction of Change

Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor. – Brian Tracy

The rudder of a sailboat doesn’t control the sea, but it does make a huge difference in where the boat goes.

Goals are much the same.

Without goals, one is rudder-less, blown about by the sea.

But, with goals, one has a direction and a means of managing forward progress – a way to steer one’s ship.

Look Within

Do not give your attention to what others do or fail to do; give it to what you do or fail to do. – Buddha

This reminds me of one of my favorite questions.

When I find myself annoyed/bothered by, or otherwise resisting, someone, I ask myself:

“What is it about you that I don’t like about me?”

That usually does the trick . . . .

What You Become

The mind is everything. What you think, you become. – Buddha

A Good Kind of Independence

As a solid rock cannot be moved by the wind, the wise are not shaken by praise or blame. – Buddha

I heard Wayne Dyer say one measure of a healthy Ego is to be independent of the good and bad opinion of others.

I have to agree with Wayne and the Buddha.
