Quotes of the Week…and Word of the Year

Yes, because I am already behind, I will post last week’s and this week’s quote (because I wasn’t behind at getting them on my kitchen cork board, I am at least not behind in having quotes!)

“Your mind will always believe everything you tell it. Feed it faith. Feed it truth. Feed it with Love.”

I love the first part of that quote. Your mind will always believe everything you tell it. So if all you are telling it is your negative dialogue – what is your mind to believe? We have so much power over our thoughts, our attitudes, our actions. It is all dependent on what we choose to feed ourselves.

 

“You have two ears and one mouth. Use them proportionally.”

Last week at a team meeting for a client, one of the team members said this. It really struck me, because the way I act, it’s like I have 20 mouths and one ear. So, being a new year and all, I decided that this could be my theme of the year. We almost have 4 full teenagers in the house, and as much as I KNOW they need verbal guidance, I think they probably need to be listened to more than anything else.

So, for this year, my word of the year is going to be: LISTEN.

Plain and simple.

Less talking. More listening.

  1. I love it. It’s a wonderful word. And with four teenagers in the house, I imagine you’ll hear so much, once you listen.
    I do that with my kids and then get amazed at how much I must have missed with my nose in the phone or a book.
