Words are powerful….be careful how you use them~

Watch your words before you open your mouth to say something…

“If you find yourself in a confrontation of any kind with anyone, be it a family member or a stranger, before reacting ask yourself, “Is what I am about to say motivated by my need to be right, or my desire to be kind?” Then pick a response that stems from kindness, regardless of how your ego objects.” -Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

    I just now read something Wally Amos wrote in the Costco newsletter.

    “A major discovery was just how impulsive and impatient I have been much of my adult life. The negative behavior permeated every aspect of my personal and business life. Oftentimes, it manifested itself as wanting to be right. My friend Dr. Jerry Jampolsky has the answer in his question, ‘Do you want to be right or happy?’ You must make a choice, you cannot always be both.”

    …I’d rather be happy…I’ll have to remember that. πŸ™‚
