WORDS of WISDOM
"The most important thing is not the title, but the person.
A true master doesn't need to be told that he's a master, he knows he is
and he can demonstrate it not talk about it."
Kyoshi Mega Martinez
Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days.
But the family we left behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.
And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our own family, an unwise investment indeed, don't you think?
And we often treat strangers and coworkers better than members of our family.
Do you know what the word FAMILY means?
FAMILY = (F)ATHER (A)ND (M)OTHER, (I), (L)OVE, (Y)OU
Pass this on to everyone that you care about.

"BECOME WISE BY WALKING WITH THE WISE."
Seize every opportunity to learn!
Surround yourself with people who compliment you - not duplicate you! If you're led by people whose insight is no deeper than your own, how far will you get? Limiting yourself to those who laugh only at the same jokes, who vote only for the same party and share only the same ideas, robs you of personal growth and leaves you living in a secure but shriveled world.
If you're going to progress to the next level, hang around those who are already there or at least know how to get there. Your development and in some cases your healing can take place only when you cross paths with people who challenge and stretch you.
But what if they make fun of me? you ask. Only the arrogant do that! The wise respond to seekers, for they themselves are seekers. Risk asking.Refuse to allow anybody to keep you stuck in a world of ignorance.
But what if I don't measure up? you ask. If you don't stand near a measure,you won't know how much you need to grow - or how much you've already grown. Having less information doesn't make you a lesser person. Life's a school and every new acquaintance is a teacher. Whatever others know, they haven't always known.
The greatest indictment against not knowing is - not learning. So, today, seize every opportunity to learn!
