There are a couple of books that I have read that I know for sure I will always promote as a must read for young adults, and this book, The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason is one of them.

Take a look and sit with some of the quotes that I pulled from his work.

“Proper preparation is the key to success. Our acts can be no wiser than our thoughts. Our thinking can be no wiser than our understanding.”

“Opportunity wastes no time with those who are unprepared.”

“Will power is the unflinching purpose to carry a task you set for yourself to fulfillment.”

“No man can climb who cannot plant his feet firmly upon the first step.”

“The more of wisdom we know, the more we may earn.”

“All good fortune and opportunity is lost when you culture a habit of needless delaying where action is required – action prompt and decisive.”

“The soul of a free man looks at life as a series of problems to be solved and solves them, while the soul of a slave whines, ‘what can I do who am but a slave?'”

“Where determination is, the way can be found.”

“Decide what thou desirest to accomplish and then work will aid thee to achieve it!”

I hope some of these quotes can give hope to whatever situation you are facing and grit to be able to confront what needs confronting.

Mile 137: Who am I to say THIS about Cancel Culture! iS IT TRUE?

This new space in our culture called “cancel culture” where any person who disagrees with the growing popular perspective or have made a misstep verbally or behaviorally, whether in the present or in the past, can be cancelled (i.e. have economic means negatively impacted) is the epitome of a self-defeating movement. But…. This is not […]

Mile 137: (Question 3) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I never thought that this process would have opened up the amount of deep conversations I’ve had with friends and colleagues because of what they’ve read in these posts. I appreciated every connection. Before I get into answering my final question in my process, I want to mention how inadequate what I’ve said and am […]

Mile 137: (Question 2) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I have meditated on part 1 of my performance psychology strategy of analyzing my internal world because of our current cultural climate for a few days now.
