The art of being yourself at your best is the art of unfolding your personality into the man you want to be. Be gentle with yourself, learn to love yourself, to forgive yourself, for only as we have the right attitude toward ourselves can we have the right attitude toward others.
Wilfred Peterson


No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.

Dale Carnegie


Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.


I make progress by having people around who are smarter than I am and listening to them. And I assume that everyone is smarter about something than I am.

If you envy successful people, you create a negative force field of attraction that repels you from ever doing the things that you need to do to be successful. If you admire successful people, you create a positive force field of attraction that draws you toward becoming more and more like the kinds of people that you want to be like.
Brian Tracy


A boss creates fear, a leader confidence. A boss fixes blame, a leader corrects mistakes. A boss knows all, a leader asks questions. A boss makes work drudgery, a leader makes it interesting. A boss is interested in himself or herself, a leader is interested in the group.
Russell H. Ewing


The people with whom you work reflect your own attitude. If you are suspicious, unfriendly and condescending, you will find these unlovely traits echoed all about you. But if you are on your best behavior, you will bring out the best in the persons with whom you are going to spend most of your working hours.
Beatrice Vincent


The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood.
Ralph Nichols

Great words to live by. They basically sum up a way of  interacting with yourself and others that promotes a sense love and respect, although it may take a lifetime to really learn how to do all of them on a consistent everyday basis.

"If you envy successful people, you create a negative force field of attraction ..."

Tammy, that is one of my favorites. I have another Brian Tracy quote that I'd like to share:

"The great breakthrough in your life comes when you realize that you can learn anything you need to learn to accomplish any goal that you set for yourself. This means there are no limits on what you can be, have or do."
