Something to Think About

I've been asked by a number of people to post some of the principles and nuggets that I share with audiences. Apparently, the simple principles are thought-provoking, so here are a few to be going along with.

When we label another human being, we don't define them. We define ourselves. (Blame & Ownership)

It's not the snakes bite that kills you, it's the venom. (Relationships)

You learn to swim by getting wet, not by just talking about swimming. (Apply your learning)

A bad relationship cannot exist without your permission and your input. (Responsibility/Stop moaning/sort things out)

If you have a problem, one that appears so difficult it can't be overcome, ask yourself this question 'What am I doing or believing about this problem which allows it to be maintained?' (Ownership for problem solving/Stop blaming others)

Every time you point a finger at someone, three fingers point right back to you. (Stop blaming/Take responsibility for your problems)

You teach people HOW to treat you. (Stop being a victim/Find your voice/Stop being submissive based on your personal history)
