Robin Sharma, 128

“The ten minute period before you sleep and the ten-minute period after you wake up are profoundly influential on your subconcious mind. Only the most inspiring and serene thoughts should be programmed into your mind at those times.”

“You make it sound like a computer.”

“That’s a pretty fair way to look at it – what you put in is what you get out. Even more important is the fact that you alone are the programmer. By determining the thoughts that go in, you also are determining precisely what will come out. So, before you go to sleep, don’t watch the news or argue with anyone or even go over that days  events in your minds eye. Relax. Drink a cup of herbal tea, if you like. Listen to some soft classical music and prepare yourself to drift off into a rich, renewing slumber.”

Becoming Human, Jean Vanier

“How easily dazzled and deceived we are by job titles, degrees, expensive clothing or suave demeanors. Don’t make the mistake of assuming that political leaders, celebrities, the wealthy or people with artistic or intellectual gifts are necessarily happy.”

“The real essence of good is only with  things under your own control. Keep this in mind and you wont find yourself feeling envious and pitfully comparing yourself and your accomplishments of others. Stop aspiring to be anyone other then your own best self: for this does fall within your control.”

2010

I’ve never been one to make New Year resolutions. Why do I  need the mark of a new year to make resolutions in my life?

But this year is all about change, so here it goes.

believe in the power of music
see the beauty in every person
make the right use of books.
stretch daily
trust my instincts
become more decisive
meditate daily

Hand writing

I like how everyone has their own unique style of hand writing.

Jack Kerouac

“What’s he talking about?” I’d ask from the back seat, and Japhy: “he’s just an interesting tape recorder.”

“Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and fads and popular opinion.”
