Tuesday “Should’ve Been” Morning Inspiration 8



Good Afternoon everyone, sorry for the delay in today’s regular post. I’m in Penang now, checking out the Starbucks here in Queensbay. Not the best Starbucks I’ve been to, the Soy Café Mocha is not as hot as it should be and a few other small things they need to work on, otherwise it’s not too bad.

I was going through my gmail account and cleaning up it (culled 8000-9000 emails yesterday) and found a lot of old emails that were really nice, they’re not exactly inspiring but can warm your heart, make your aware of certain things and/or motivate you.

So here are a few I would like to share.

Winners Vs. Losers

The Winner is always part of the answer;
The Winner always has a program;
The Winner says, “Let me do it for you”;
The Winner sees an answer for every problem;
When a Winner makes a mistake, he says, “I was wrong”;
A Winner makes commitments;
Winners say, “I must do something”;

The Loser is always part of the problem.
The Loser always has an excuse.
The Loser says, “That is not my job.”
The Loser sees a problem for every answer.
When a Loser makes a mistake, he says, “It wasn’t my fault.”
A Loser makes promises.


One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.

“One is Evil – It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

“The other is Good – It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”


1. Some people complain that there are thorns on roses, while others praise thorns for having roses among them.
2. A person’s true character is revealed by what he does when no one is watching.

3. Although the tongue weighs very little, very few people are able to hold it.

4. Falling down doesn’t make you a failure, but staying down does.

5. Don’t be afraid of pressure. Remember that pressure is what turns a lump of coal into a diamond.

6. Even a woodpecker owes his success to the fact that he uses his head.

7. The poorest of all men is not the man without a cent but the man without a dream.

8. The only preparation for tomorrow is the right use of today.

9. People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

10. Temper is what gets most of us into trouble. Pride is what keeps us there.

11. The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little “extra”.

12. The heart is happiest when it beats for others.

13. One thing you can learn by watching the clock is that it passes time by keeping its hands busy.

14. Happiness is not something you find, It’s something you create.

15. Nothing in this world is IMPOSSIBLE as the word is “I M POSSIBLE”.

LIFE IS NO WHERE – can be read as – LIFE IS NOW HERE.

This is the reality of life. It depends how you treat it. Be Positive. Keep smiling, it improves your face value…

Self Confidence

The business executive was deep in debt and could see no way out.
Creditors were closing in on him. Suppliers were demanding payment.
He sat on the park bench, head in hands, wondering if anything could
save his company from bankruptcy.

Suddenly an old man appeared before him. “I can see that something is troubling you,” he said.
After listening to the executive’s woes, the old man said, “I believe I can help you.”
He asked the man his name, wrote out a check, and pushed it into his hand saying, “Take this money.
Meet me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back at that time.”
Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come.

The business executive saw in his hand a check for $500,000, signed by John D. Rockefeller, then
one of the richest men in the world! “I can erase my money worries in an instant!” he realized.
But instead, the executive decided to put the uncashed check in his safe. Just knowing it was there
might give him the strength to work out a way to save his business, he thought.
With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended terms of payment. He closed
several big sales. Within a few months, he was out of debt and making money once again.

Exactly one year later, he returned to the park with the uncashed check. At the agreed-upon time,
the old man appeared. But just as the executive was about to hand back the check and share his
success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man.
“I’m so glad I caught him!” she cried. “I hope he hasn’t been bothering you. He’s always escaping
from the rest home and telling people he’s John D. Rockefeller.”
And she led the old man away by the arm.

The astonished executive just stood there, stunned. All year long he’d been wheeling and dealing,
buying and selling, convinced he had half a million dollars behind him!
Suddenly, he realized that it wasn’t the money, real or imagined, that had turned his life around.
It was his newfound self-confidence that gave him the power to achieve anything he went after.

This is similar to something called a “placebo” effect – some people in medicine trials are given fake pills – placebo – while others with actual medicine.. And it always happens that some of the people given a placebo enjoy the medicinal benefits even though they have not had the medicine – just because they thought they were treated! Our mind has amazing powers we can not even fathom…

Remember that is how you look at life and what you do about it. Whether you belief in yourself, whether you are thinking like a winner, whether you want to progress whether you want to Keep Moving Forward. Shit will definitely happen to you in life, you just have to find the strength to get past it and Keep Moving Forward. It isn’t always easy, but you’ll need to find a source of strength and tap into it.

Straight from the Heart.
