For Your Wise Reflection 1

* It’s a lot easier to refrain from saying something than it is to take it back after you’ve said it. In fact, you can never really take something you’ve said back. Like an arrow released from a bow—it cannot be called back. I’ve always remembered this little prayer: "Oh Lord, help me to make my words this day tender and tasty for I may have to eat them."

* Shortcuts seldom work. Perhaps Beverly Sills said it best when she wrote, "There are no shortcuts to any place worth going."

* Personal responsibility. People who have personal responsibility are very rare indeed. Most people want to fix the blame rather than fix the problem.

* On the road to comfort, one must be willing to sometimes be uncomfortable.

* Success is not an accident. If you develop the HABITS of success, you will make success a habit.
