There are only three sorts of people: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who say, “What happened?” Which one are you ? – Bruce G. Gale

Express Gratitude.. Each of us should strive to be more like Matthew Henry. When he was robbed, he wrote the following in his diary : “Let me be thankful first because I was never robbed before; second, although they took my purse, they did not take my life; third, because although they took my all, it was not much; and fourth, because it was I who was roobbed, not I who robbed ~ John C. Maxwell’s book : Everyone Communicates few connect

Any message you try to convey must contain a piece of you. You can’t just deliver words. You can’t merely convey information. You need to be more than just a messenger. You must be the message you want to deliver. Otherwise you won’t have credibility and you won’t connect – John C. Maxwell

The purpose of life is not to win. The purpose of life is to grow and to share. When you come to look back on all that you have done in life , you will get more satisfaction from the pleasure you have brought into other people’s lives than you will from the times that you outdid and defeated them ~ Rabbi Harold Kushner

Wiraniaga bangun setiap pagi sebagai penganggur dan akan tetap menjadi penganggur sampai mereka bertatap muka dengan seseorang yang mampu dan mau membeli dalam jangka waktu tertentu. Setelah itu barulah hari kerja di mulai. Itulah sebabnya pemborosan waktu pertama dan utama dalam menjual adalah penangguhan dan penundaan ~ Brian Tracy

The Triple-Filter Test In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem. One day an acquaintance met the great philosopher and said, “Do you know what I just heard about your friend?” “Hold on a minute,” Socrates replied. “Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be good idea to take a moment and filter what you’re going to say. That’s why I call it the triple filter test. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?” “Well, no,” the man said, “actually I just heard about it and…” “All right,” said Socrates. “So you don’t really know if it’s true or not. Now, let’s try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?” “Umm, no, on the contrary…” “So,” Socrates continued, “you want to tell me something bad about my friend, but you’re not certain it’s true. You may still pass the test though, because there’s one filter left—the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?” “No, not really.” “Well,” concluded Socrates, “if what you want to tell me is neither true, nor good, nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?”

“I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.” ― Lisa Kleypas, Blue-Eyed Devil
