Dad has many great quotes, but for me, this is my favorite:
“You are who you are and what you are because of what has gone into your mind. You can change who you are and what you are by changing what goes into your mind.” Zig Ziglar
This quote is so Pure and so Simple. Don’t like where you are? Don’t like what you are? Change your input. Turn off the TV. Turn off the screaming heads on talk radio. Just say no to your negative “friends.” Say yes to the good, the clean, the pure, the powerful and the positive. Say yes every day.
This great article by Thomas Sowell says the same thing in a much more intellectual way. And it makes me think – are we smart because we are smart? Or are we smart because we do what smart people do? As for me, I am not willing to take a chance! I think I will do what the smart people do. How about you?
