Diamond’s Laws to Live By #9:
“It’s all right now
I’ve learned my lesson well
You can’t please everyone
So you have to please yourself”…-Rick Nelson, 50’s Rock-N-Roll singer
Here’s a good attitude: No matter what your experiences are, enjoy them in an objective way, as you would a movie.
You have to find true happiness and peace within yourself.
Nothing worthwhile will be gained without effort and concentration.
The person who says money can’t buy you happiness doesn’t know where to shop.
Remember, as you go through life, it doesn’t take much to make some people feel important…-Imogene Davison
Have faith in yourself. Keep your mind on good thoughts and your actions based on wisdom and reason. To be successful and happy don’t waste time.
Worry is an energy rip-off. It does no good to worry. It causes nervousness and disease. Solve the problem rather than worry about it.
You must be prepared to withstand the critical opinion of the world in order to succeed in a great way in any vocation. You must stay away from one-horsepower people in order to original… to think differently, to have zeal, initiative and happiness.
Even when we see our loved ones pulled away in to the mysterious unknown, we do not think seriously about our having to go too, sometime. But one should not wait for the approach of death to realize the importance of seeking God. Each minute of life should be a divine quest… -Paramahansa Yogananda, author of Man’s Eternal Quest
Power is the key to life, so keep your eye on the ball and don’t take bad shots.
