What is the best advice you've ever received?

Here's mine....

You'd worry a lot less about what people think about you if you knew just how little they did.

Hmmm....that’s a toss up but, I always like:

Always wear a smile....makes them wonder what you’ve been up to.

Not mine. I have a couple several but I have always liked this classic two parter:

"Don't sweat the small shit."
"It's all small shit"

if you can control the following, you can be, become and/or accomplish ANYTHING:

1. control your weight
2. control the cleanliness of your home/environment
3. control your spending

...said by Mike Ferry, i don't know if he made it up or borrowed it from zig ziglar, deepok chokra, earl nightingale or walt conant. doesn't matter... it's freakin true

bottom line is self discipline, planning, and execution while keeping a good attitude and expectations.... the keys to creating your own reality and carving out your own destiny.

...That which does not kill me merely pisses me off!...

The greater part of inspiration is perspiration. Always have faith in myself and to be myself. And the most important ... always be polite and never be prejudiced.

This is my blog - Comes With Warning Labels. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

It seems my parents were constantly giving me advice based on reverse psychology.

I would hear things like:

1. Go run with scissors
2. Go play in the street
3. Yellow snow is good for you
4. The only way to really see the eclipse is to look directly at it.
5. it's not really that high..jump.

But the best advice I ever recieved was "it's yours and you can wash it however you like"!
