A Great Tragedy

A Great Tragedy

The greatest tragedy in life is to die without fully knowing who we are. 

Be known for who you really are and not just what you do.

1.       Understand yourself first then you will understand others. How well do you understand who you are?

2.       We only get to keep what we give away. What else can you give that costs so little but love?

3.       Failure is an integral part of success. How resilient are you to your failures?

4.       Selective suppression, even when we are right, increases our influence. It is far better to be happy than to be right. How often do you leave things unsaid?

5.       Be wise and learn from disappointments and tragedies. It is in our suffering that we find our greatness. Did you know that suffering is a divine favor?

6.       Having courage does not come naturally to anyone. Are you cultivating your courage?

7.       Hugs are the most valuable and effective therapy available to us. Why not become a hug therapist?

Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
