The Art of Being Brilliant – Andy (Cope & Whittaker)

My favorite quotes from the book The Art of Being Brilliant: Transform Your Life by Doing What Works For You by Andy (Cope &  Whittaker):

Our final thought in this chapter goes to a great quote that seems to sum up a lot of thinking young people nowadays: "The world is passing through troubled times. The young people of today think of nothing but themselves. They have no respect for parents or older people. They are impatient. They talk as if they know everything. And what passes for wisdom with us is foolishness with them. As for the girls; they are forward, immodest and unladylike in speech behavior and dress.". Hard to disagree. Except that this quotes is from a sermon preached by Peter the Hermit in AD 1274. Seems like young people have always been frowned upon by the older generation. Maybe it's not the younger generation that needs to change. Maybe it's up to us to chill out a bit.

A modern prayer (read at a very fast pace ?): "Dear God, help me to slow down and not rush past everything that is important today. Amen."

10% of life is made up of what happens to you. 90% of life is decided by how you react to the 10%.

  1. Choose to be positive
  2. Understand your impact
  3. Take personal responsibility
  4. Have bouncebackability
  5. Set huge goals
  6. Play to your strengths

The change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

Happy button - don't wear it out 😉

Failure is only the opportunity to begin again, more intelligently.
