Only Ending the Old Way Produces a New Way

Yearning for a new way will not produce it. Only ending the old way can do that.

You cannot hold onto the old all the while declaring that you want something new.

The old will defy the new; the old will deny the new; the old will decry the new.

There is only one way to bring in the new. You must make room for it.

Feeling ruffled and slighted

...if you become ruffled with every comment that you consider a 'slight,' you will never find peace.

Nor will you find it by always separating yourself from those who ruffle you. You can only end so many friendships before you find yourself very much alone.

You can keep making new friends, of course, but sooner or later they will ruffle you — and then what?

Perhaps the better course might be to let the ruffle go. People rarely mean it when they do that, and a touch of gentle tolerance and easy forgiveness every day is even better than an apple…

Love others grandly

...love is the center and the core of everything, and that Self is the place where all love must begin.
Those who love others grandly are those who love themselves grandly. Those who have a high toleration and acceptance of others are those who have a high toleration and acceptance of themselves.

You cannot show another a part of you that you cannot show yourself. Therefore, begin where all growth, where all evolution, where all love must begin: with the person in the mirror.
Will you not love yourself grandly today? For the world's sake?

The quickest way to success

……it is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.

Napoleon Hill said that, and he was right. Nothing ensures success like ensuring another's success. And there is someone who is looking for your help and your support today.

Lift that person up, give that person credit, do whatever you can to help that person be a success.

And always remember: What goes around comes around.

Neale Donald Walsch
