Are You Willing to Take Advice?

I don't think anybody needs a speech on what is right and what is wrong. Most people don't want to be told how to live their lives either. Through the years, I've continually fought against everyone's advice. If I could go back with the knowledge I have now and with what I have experienced, things would be so very different. Even basic "listen to your parents" kind of advice -- and I know that, yes, I should have listened to my parents more. Besides the typical teen screw-ups, which I think most of us are guilty of, it can get…

Taking Control of Your Story

None of us know when our last day in this realm here on earth will be, as each moment dies in order for the next moment to be born. Know that we are not our experiences.

Look in the eyes of others and be in the moment. Wait to speak. Take in the words they offer and savor them before reacting.

Your Greatest Responsibility

Perhaps the most important thing I have learned in this extraordinary life is that we are responsible for our own happiness. It is not determined by anything outside of ourselves even though it often appears to be. The rich can be miserable ("Oh, I'm so unhappy. I wanted Johnson to drive me to Tiffany's in the Lamborghini but now I have to go in the stupid Rolls. How awful.") And the poor can be joyful ("Ah, there is enough food for the whole family this year. We are so blessed.") With that reality we have tremendous power; we can stop…
