NewYear's Special: Pearls Of Wisdom

Print  Friendly and PDF
On New Year's Day, I want to pass on these meaningful pearls of wisdom to my fellow bloggers and buddies. Even if one does not want to follow, it makes for a good read. So Enjoy!
  • Have a firm handshake.
  • Look people in the eye.
  • Sing in the shower.
  • Own a great stereo system.
  • If in a fight, hit first and hit hard.
  • Keep secrets.
  • Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen everyday.
  • Always accept an outstretched hand.
  • Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.
  • Whistle.
  • Avoid sarcastic remarks.
  • Choose your life's mate carefully. From this one decision will come percent of all your happiness or misery.
  • Make it a habit to do nice things for people who will never find out.
  • Lend only those books you never care to see again.
  • Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all that they have.
  • When playing games with children, let them win.
  • Give people a second chance, but not a third.
  • Be romantic.
  • Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.
  • Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life-and-death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems.
  • Don't allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It's there for your convenience, not the caller's.
  • Be a good loser.
  • Be a great winner.
  • Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret.
  • When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go.
  • Be modest. A lot was accomplished before you were born.
  • Keep it simple.
  • Beware of the person who has nothing to lose.
  • Don't burn bridges. You'll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river.
  • Live your life so that your 'epitaph' could read, No Regrets
  • Be bold and courageous. When you look back on life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the one's you did.
  • Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.
  • Remember no one makes it alone. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who helped you.
  • Take charge of your attitude. Don't let someone else choose it for you.
  • Begin each day with some of your favorite music.
  • Once in a while, take the scenic route.
  • Send a lot of Valentine cards. Sign them, 'Someone who thinks you're terrific.'
  • Keep a note pad and pencil on your bed-side table. Million-dollar ideas sometimes strike at 3 a.m.
  • Show respect for everyone who works for a living, regardless of how trivial their job.
  • Send your loved ones flowers. Think of a reason later.
  • Become someone's hero.
  • Marry only for love.
  • Count your blessings.
  • Compliment the meal when you're a guest in someone's home.
  • Wave at the children on a school bus.
  • Remember that 80% of the success in any job is based on your ability to deal with people.
  • Don't expect life to be fair.
  • Smile Always :-))
