Don’t Accept The Posion

July 23, 2010

Would you willingly ingest poison? Probably not.

Yet maybe we drink poison more often than we think we do.

I was hunting for a spot in the parking lot. Suddenly a car appeared from a lane to make a left turn across my path. The driver was looking the other way. I braked and gently tapped my horn to warn her. She stopped and looked at me in surprise. Even though I had the right of way I couldn’t proceed because her car was blocking my path so I waved her through. I shook my head in displeasure.

To my surprise and annoyance she stuck her left arm out of her car and gave me the finger as she completed her turn.

I felt angry and abused.

However, I was about to meet with a prospective client so I deleted the poison of this incident from my mind.

There was no win in holding on to this poison.

Muhammad Ali – the Greatest!

July 17, 2010

A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
Muhammad Ali

A rooster crows only when it sees the light. Put him in the dark and he’ll never crow. I have seen the light and I’m crowing.
Muhammad Ali

Age is whatever you think it is. You are as old as you think you are.
Muhammad Ali

At home I am a nice guy: but I don’t want the world to know. Humble people, I’ve found, don’t get very far.

Boxing is a lot of white men watching two black men beat each other up.

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.

Frazier is so ugly that he should donate his face to the US Bureau of Wild Life.

Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which color does the hating. It’s just plain wrong.
Muhammad Ali

He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.

I am the astronaut of boxing. Joe Louis and Dempsey were just jet pilots. I’m in a world of my own.
Muhammad Ali

I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.

I figure I’ll be champ for about ten years and then I’ll let my brother take over – like the Kennedys down in Washington.

I hated every minute of training, but I said, “Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.”

I know I got it made while the masses of black people are catchin’ hell, but as long as they ain’t free, I ain’t free.
Muhammad Ali

I know where I’m going and I know the truth, and I don’t have to be what you want me to be. I’m free to be what I want.
Muhammad Ali

I never thought of losing, but now that it’ s happened, the only thing is to do it right. That’s my obligation to all the people who believe in me. We all have to take defeats in life.
Muhammad Ali

I wish people would love everybody else the way they love me. It would be a better world.
Muhammad Ali

Hot, Hazy & Humid

July 6, 2010

The last few days were hot, hazy and humid. The next few days look like the same.

I don’t want to go outside on these days. I even feel lazy while inside. I went for a run early this morning and didn’t accomplish much the rest of the day.

If you feel that way – don’t beat yourself up. We are sensitive to the influences around us.

The good news is that all of it is temporary. Hot changes to cold and cold to hot.

Allow yourself to experience down moments, hours or days. And be prepared to spring back. The secret is to spring back.
