Simple Stuff

(SIMPLE STUFF is a short bit of ideas, quotes, phrases, and ‘stuff’ to help you stay focused, stay loose, ask better questions, and laugh a bit.)

“For it’s not light that is needed, but fire; it’s not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind and the earthquake in our hearts.” ~ Frederick Douglass

If we focus on what we fear, we feel it today and experience it as if it has already happened. Living in fear does not equate to a proactive life—it will guarantee drama, stress, and reactivity instead of fulfillment. Tony Robbinschild_hand

When confronted by mean-spiritedness, and hateful gossip, respond to it from your position of love: “I don’t want to make any judgments.” Rather than criticizing the mean-spirited person, silently project love. Wayne Dyer

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. Mark Twain

Cross country skiing is great if you live in a small country. – Steven Wright

The bravest thing you can do when you are not brave is to profess courage and act accordingly. Corra Harris

Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength but perserverance. Samuel Johnson
