Measuring oneself against oneself, from who you were and are to that higher best self is much wiser than measuring oneself by another or another’s opinion of you.
Yet deciding to be wise in your measuring is not easy, nor was ever meant to be easy.
The easy way is very deceptive. The D or the A you receive of that test has little to do with who you really are … Your view and opinion of yourself makes all the difference.
Wisdoms journey takes courage and stamina. Your best self is discovered in Wisdoms Journey. Living in pursuit of your best is where all you crave is discovered.
Begin here, begin now to compare yourself to your former self and to your vision of your best self. Discard all outside comparison of others or by others.
The courage and stamina is discovered along to upward journey called Wisdom.
You want your best self and we need your best self.
When there is anything I can do to “in-courage” you while in pursuit of your best self , just ask.
Recently while driving to a series of meeting in Victorville, California a friend read a book to me called “One Word that will change your life”.
I just read it myself, it took just over an hour. The concept within the book is very challenging. Take a look and see what you think?
Let me know your thoughts?
Good morning, the day after Christmas 2013. Just a bit ago a friend of mine posted a poem by an unknown author on his Facebook. It was timely for me. I wondered if it would be for you as well.
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he’d stuck it out.
Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are –
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.
Let me know your thoughts and feelings of the timeless poem.
