Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say

Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say
And that's the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.
Not everyone means everything they say. This is a tough life lesson to learn, especially to those people who grew up instilled with principles of honesty and integrity deeply embedded in their psyche. As we face the real world, we would like to think that everyone is honest, and has the best intentions, but this is simply not true. We have to take the world for what it is.

This doesn't mean that we should go around being dishonest just because everyone else is but it does mean that we shouldn't be so naive to believe that what everyone says is true. An old saying might be a little too harsh but it is something to think about "Believe only half of what you see, and none of what you hear." Learn to trust those who only deserve your trust and no one who doesn't.

Be Humble For You Are Made Of Earth
Be humble for you are made of earth. Be noble for you are made of stars.
In life when we are able to accomplish high degrees of success, our human nature tends to try to push us into a mindset that many like to call pride. Pride is a false sense of confidence that may make one feel as if they are better than or greater than someone else because of who they are, where they have been, and what they have accomplished. People who continue to live in pride not only alienate themselves from others, they also lose touch with who they really are after a while.

Give As Much Energy To Your Dreams As You Do To Your Fears

Give As Much Energy To Your Dreams As You Do To Your Fears
Miracles start to happen when you give as much energy to your dreams as you do to your fears.
If we choose to stop dreaming, then we choose to stop living. I say choose because deferring away from our dreams is a choice. If there were never no one to tell us that maybe we can't reach whatever goals that we see in our hearts, then there would never be anyone who didn't accomplish everything that God put them on this Earth to accomplish.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words
By J. Johnson, picture courtesy of SearchQuotes October 17, 2014
 
Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Actions speak louder than words, so believe what you see and forget what you heard.
What is true about life is that the actions we are willing to commit are much greater in showing others where we are in life than words alone. Words are very powerful, and heavily influence our actions, but words aren't always enough.

I'd Rather Have A Life Of Oh Wells Than A Life Of What Ifs

I'd Rather Have A Life Of Oh Wells Than A Life Of What Ifs
I'd rather have a life of 'oh wells' than a life of 'what ifs'.
So many people let the question "what if" dominate their lives so much that they oft times forget to even take action. Sometimes it is very good to ask "what if" because asking this opens our eyes to many things we have never seen and probably would have never seen if we never posed the question in the first place. But as we all know, too much of anything is never good for us.

When Life's Tough Remember You Are Tougher
When life's tough remember you are tougher.
In a life full of tough times, tough people, and tough circumstances, it is easy to fall into the mindset that no matter what you do nothing in your life will turn out as you want it to. In order to overcome this mindset one must be willing to accept that life has its ups and its downs, but for the most part life is a result of the choices and decisions a person makes on any given day.
