Positively Speaking

Words That Can Change Your Life

Possibility: See the opportunities in life. Choose to be positive, not negative. Singer Beverly Sills’ friends call her “bubbles” because she always rises to the top, overcoming her challenges and setbacks, she sees the possibilities.

Dream: Get yourself a goal, then go out and share it with everyone. Nothing will happen if you don’t share your vision. Success only occurs with the help of others. You will never know who could help you turn your dreams into a reality if you don’t share them.

Prioritize: Put things into the right perspective. Decide what comes first. Ask yourself, “Am I making a living or making a life?” Don’t prioritize your schedule; schedule your priorities! 

Goals: Setting short, medium and long-term goals is essential in realizing your dreams. Your goals are the road map that will guide you along the way. They help you track your progress and correct your course. As each step is completed, you will gain a sense of achievement and encouragement; you will increase your self-image and your feelings of self-worth, helping you to move on to your next goal. 

Believe: You are the best thing you have going for you! Believe in yourself, believe that you have the abilities needed to reach your goals, and attain all you set out to achieve. Count your strengths and not your shortcomings. 

Trust: Trust in the fact that all your doubts can be overcome. That the strength to surmount all obstacles will be there when you need it. Trust your instincts and listen to them, if you are doing the right thing, they will guide you. 

Blessing: Be a blessing to others. Serving others is the way to ultimate success in all your endeavours. It is the foundation upon which all success is built. Building a firm foundation will ensure that your success will stand the test of time and the attacks of those who seek to destroy what you have created. You must first give before you can receive. If you take before you give, you will lose. 

Principles: Know what principles you wish to live by and follow them. Always use them as your guide to how you should respond to others or in what direction you should move next. In his book The Power Principle, Blaine Lee says, “The principles you live by, create the world you live in.” Once we accept this fact, we will change our world.

Take a look at the successful people in our world. In general, they are people to which all of these words can be applied. If they don’t measure up to all the terms, they are probably still growing and learning. No one is perfect. We must continue to grow ourselves, to understand and improve. It is in that improvement that we will find our ultimate success.

Editors Quote Book

“Interested people want to know if it works. Fascinated people want to know how it works.” Jim Rohn

The London Lawyer

A London lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a Glasgow copper. The lawyer thinks that he is smarter than the cop because he is from London and is confident that he has a better education than any Scottish cop. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Glasgow cop’s expense! The cop says, “license and registration, please.” The lawyer says, “what for?” The cop says, “Ye didnae come to a complete stop at the stop sign.” The  lawyer says, “I slowed down, and no one was coming.” The cop says, “Ye still didnae come to a complete stop. Licence and registration, please.” The lawyer says, “What’s the difference?” The cop says, “The difference is, ye have to come to a complete stop, that’s the law, licence and registration please.” The lawyer says, “If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I’ll give you my licence and registration; and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket.” The cop says, “sound fair, exit your vehicle, sir.” The London Lawyer exits his vehicle. The Glasgow cop takes out his baton and starts hitting the lawyer and says, “Dae ye want me to stop, or just slow doon?

Fergal plants the tree, and Sean fills in the hole. Today Fergal is away unwell, but that doesn’t mean Sean and I have to take the day off, does it?”
