Intuition

Intuition does play a role in the life of a thinking person. But the fact that our feelings are so capable of being manipulated makes them much less reliable than our intellect. Socrates once said that he was the wisest man on earth because he realized he knew nothing. He believed that all of us…

Persistence pays off…

Persistence is often what separates us from success, disappointment or failure. The problem is we don’t know the success or result at the time, so it is easy to not be sure of it, and feel it is far from us. Many things are unsure. We don’t always have guarantees for every quest we take,…

…Jump…

Never think that you are jumping off into nothing or it will always be hard or bring unhappiness. Think that you are jumping into new joys and experiences as you go out to life. Just because you don’t know the ending, don’t slay the beginning by your fears or unknowing. Life has a way of…

Trials…

Trial and error is often the prerequisite to our gains and joys. There is usually no shortcut to excellence and experience.

There are times when sacrifices are warranted and needed. We are made better by those kinds of sacrifices, but there are times we have to take a look at what we are asked to leave or let go of. Some things are not negotiable. Your integrity or ability to look yourself in the mirror can’t…

Future Means Here and Now for Every Frugal!

When you step back and stop rushing through life, you understand that the destination is to be found not at the end of your journey but within your journey. The moment you understand this is akin to the moment in which you see that the problems you think that others have are more a reflection…

#Word

“Fall in love with some activity, and do it! Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn’t matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough. Work as hard and as much as you want to on the things you like to do the…
