Our minds, hearts, and homes

Whatever happened to honor and respect? 
Some people don’t care what they say, what they look like, or even live like, much less do they care if it offends you!

You may call it freedom, but it comes with a high price.

I understand some people have real mental issues. There are people​ who have real problems dealing with their issues, and would like to let everybody know it.

On a different note, many have been enticed into believing the world owes them a living, and they whine to everybody who will listen to garner pity for their feelings, or else make major excuses to justify themselves.

No matter how you slice it, most people have lost touch with two basic human values, honor and respect.

It is evident everywhere you look.

So what’s to be done about it?

The underlying principle is always the same. It boils down to personal responsibility.

And the question to ask is always the same. 

Who or what do you want to be? 

You decide to be the person who shows honor and respect because your attitude affects everybody in one way or another, including you.

It’s time for an honor and respect wake-up call.

Start with yourself and you are guaranteed you will make your life easier, better and more valuable.
If you show honor and respect for yourself in everything you do and say, others will respond in a very good way. 

Don’t tear yourself down, and don’t beat yourself up. Be the change you want to see in the world. 

After that, show respect and honor to your family. Show respect and honor with people at work and at play.

I don’t wish to lecture anyone, but I believe the lack of honor and respect is at the core of society’s​ problems.

Things won’t get better until a sacred sense of honor and respect pervades all the spaces in our minds, hearts and homes. 

Face the facts

imageSo, are you afraid of being yelled at? If so, then you probably don’t have what it takes to be a business success.

Apparently,  studies have shown that emotional  resilience is a mark of a key player.
My mum used to kick my butt verbally to get me to move. It was painful and I resented it. However, it did work. I didn’t like it and I wound up being mad at her, so mad, in fact, I wanted to run away from home.

I was delusional.  I believed life might offer fun instead of fear. It offers both.
Nevertheless, to be successful one must have the wherewithal to handle criticism and discipline.
Now I am stronger. My mother taught me that.
She was a pragmatist and helped me to quit lying to myself.
Hopefully,  we all have role models in our lives to help us to learn to face the facts.
If you want to run with the winners, you need to have the power to handle your feelings, stay focused, and be accountable.
If you don’t care, you will find out too late, there is no one but you to blame for your failure.

Musically yours,
