The Little Things in Life

Enjoy the little things in life for one day you will look back and realize they were the big things.

Most important human needs

Human beings need three basic things in order to be content: they need to feel competent at what they do; they need to feel authentic in their lives; and they need to feel connected to others. These values are considered "intrinsic" to human happiness and far outweigh "extrinsic" values such as beauty, money and status.

- Sebastian Junger

 

The Primal Need to Feel Necessary

For many people, war feels better than peace and hardship can turn out to be a great blessing and disasters are sometimes remembered more fondly than weddings or tropical vacations. Humans don’t mind duress, in fact they thrive on it. What they mind is not feeling necessary.

- Sebastian Junger

 

Process

If you are not willing to be a fool, you can't become a master.

Being Grateful

What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?

Try Doing Something Good

You can spend all day undermining other people, and even if you're right, who cares?  Anybody can talk about why something is bad.  Try doing something good.

- Joseph Gordon-Levitt

 

Friendship

Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity (to take advantage).

- Kahlil Gibran

 

Making Things Happen

The system is not built for you to succeed, you have to break through it.

- Matt Damon

 

Those Who Feel Isolated and Lonely

Let's remember that taking even a brief moment to be kind, thoughtful, and friendly can inject great warmth and hope into a lonely person's day.

 

Owning Our Mistakes

It is one thing to make a mistake, and quite another thing not to admit it. People will forgive mistakes, because mistakes are usually of the mind, mistakes of judgment. But people will not easily forgive the mistakes of the heart, the ill intention, the bad motives, the prideful justifying cover-up of the first mistake.

- Dr. Stephen Covey
