Some Stuff I've Learned in the Last Few Weeks

Some really cool stuff I've learned in the last few weeks (and you thought I was just a kurotty teacher):

From The Go-Giver:

The Law of Value: Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.
The Law of Compensation: Your income id determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
The Law of Influence: Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people's interests first.
The Law of Authenticity: The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
The Law of Receptivity: The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.

  • If you want to succeed in life, you have to make sure you have no choice in the matter.
  • True genius lies in simplicity.
  • Life give us exactly what we ask from it -- if you don't ask for anything, you won't get anything.
  • All events in life are a mirror image of your thoughts.
  • Expand your mental limits and you will expand the limits of your life.
  • When imagination and logic are in conflict with each other, imagination invariably takes over.
  • I refuse to die without having had the courage to do what I wanted to do.
  • Tranquility is the greatest manifestation of power.
  • You must find work that is satisfying to your heart.

Okay, I've just summarized and gift-wrapped a LOT of distilled wisdom that was hard-won by other people, over many lifetimes. What are YOU going to do with this gift?
