Weekend Wisdom

Weekend Wisdom: Being Great!

Today’s Weekend Wisdom is inspired by QuoteGarden’s “Dare To Be Great!” section. These quotes also are right in line with what my friend Jeff Nischwitz said Tuesday night during his speech.

Enjoy and then either go light your fire or throw some logs on your fire if it’s been smoldering for awhile.


Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.


Arnold H. Glasow

If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you have to do is wake up.


J.M. Power

You may not know where you’re going, but so long as you spread your wings the winds will carry you.

C. JoyBell C.

Great ideas need landing gear as well as wings.

What I Thought When I Read My Email This Morning

I just checked my email this morning and the first 3 things I saw were the following Fox News Alerts:

  • 8 dead in Florida mass shooting police say.
  • Scotland rejects independence in historic vote.
  • France launches first airstrike against ISIS in Iraq. 

The next email subject line was from my friend Jeff Nischwitz: of The Nischwitz Group

  • Daily Wake-Up Call – Change your thoughts, Change your life! 

I thought if ISIL would change their thoughts, how much better would not only their life be but ours as well?

If the shooter in Florida had changed his thoughts, how much better would his life and those he killed be?

Someone in Scotland changed their thoughts which led to a historic vote yesterday.  For better or for worse, life will be different in Scotland because someone changed their thoughts.

Changing your thoughts (or keeping them the same) will make a difference in your life and in the lives of those around you.

What thoughts are you thinking today?  Hopefully only joy filled ones.

Now I am off to read the details of each of those stories.

Wishing you a joy filled weekend despite the news headlines.

Weekend Wisdom: Judging

Imagine how much joy you will experience when leaving the judging to God.  He has the right to judge because He created us.

Also imagine the joy you will bring to other people when you just love and accept them as a wonderful person created in God’s image.

Judging another person is judging God.  We do not have the right to judge God. We can ask questions of Him but we have no right to judge Him or anyone He created – which is everybody.

We all judge actions. Leave the people judging to God. 

Jeff Nischwitz

Real magic in relationships means an absence of judgment of others. 

Wayne Dyer

May you experience magic in all your relationships today, tomorrow and always – and leave the judging to God.
