Many people are calling Manti Te'o 'dumb' or 'naive' because he fell for the 'invisible girlfriend' hoax or catfishing but when you think about it. Religion MIGHT be doing the same thing when it tells you that there is a 'God' that you cannot see, or meet, that loves you, & 'communicates' with you thru a book (bible).Does that make sense?
I remember a time in a class on a cold winter morning a Japanese girl came with a surgical mask and I thought 'wow people would go to extremes NOT to get sick in Japan' afterwards on a break I approached her and asked in a cynical manner: why the mask? Are you afraid of catching a cold? and then she said 'in Japan you use it when YOU are under the weather and you don't want other people to get sick, it is the polite thing to do' wow! that's a lesson I will never forget

Did you have a rough month? I did :( but, you know what? There's no time to dwell on a missed opportunity or worry about what I should've done or said, beating myself up & making myself miserable about my mistakes. That doesn't work. So will take notes from that, put it behind me, move on & finish the year STRONG
Reading all the quotes in the world won't make you or me into Plato, Gandhi Or Einstein, just like watching hundreds games of soccer won't make you a soccer player or taking a yoga class will make u a yogini, or reading a golf book will make you a golfer. We need to put the Knowledge to practice and that is the challenge. Put it to work for you, make the effort to Follow Through

There's a Chinese proverb that says 'Wisdom is avoiding all thoughts that weaken you & embracing those that strengthen you' Your mind is like a Ferrari (Or your favorite car) it is Awesome!... but if you put sand on the gas tank it won't run. Don't put sand (negativity) on your mind. Think positive, encouraging, uplifting thoughts, & the negative will soon evaporate.

There is a funny story I always tell my students... when I came for the first time to the US. I didn't speak English (Only Spanish) and I saw on every door the word 'exit' which in Spanish means Success = Exito. And then I said :'No wonder Americans are winners , every door they take leads to success' ~smile :)

I've got a question for you... Are you the person who you thought you'd be by now? I know I am not. The fact is that life may not be what you thought it would be by now (If It is, I congratulate you and applaud you) You may feel stuck in a job you don't like, not making enough money, jobless, or maybe you are in a bad relationship/marriage, or unhappy because you are out of shape... but don't let that get you down. The key is 2 focus on what you have (Health, Fam, friends etc) instead of what you don't have. And also in the things that you have done (Finished a Race-College/Got that Diploma/Raise a Family etc) Instead of the things you haven't done. yet IF where you are now, it's not where you want to be... know that where you're going is far more important than where you are now or where you've been. Forgive yourself, Accept the current situation and MOVE ON, knowing that from now on you will focus your time and energy on the possibilities and opportunities that lie ahead 4 you in the near future.

It makes no sense to compare yourself with others because there will always be better & worse people than you out there. Each person has his own path to make. You are where you are now. Could you reach for the stars & have everything you want? realistically no. You may not win Olympic Gold in London 2012 , or be the CEO of a Fortune 500 company etc but you most definitely have the capacity to make YOUR life as the Masterpiece it could really be. The choice is yours...

Imagine you are in a classroom and they hand you a test with many interesting multiple choice questions, until you get to 'Can you just explain what exactly you believe how the Universe started?' and here are the options. a) The Big Bang b) It's always been there c) God! or Gods d) A bowl of cherries e) I don't know... If you choose (a) then what or who and why caused it? and the test continues...If you choose (b) that would be my choice. If you choose (c) then who or what created God or Gods? And where do they come from? And if you think they have always been there, the same thing could be said about the universe. If you choose (d) It doesn't make sense, it is odd, an anomaly, not supposed to be etc :) if you choose (e) then you are being honest. There's nothing wrong with not knowing. You can make 'assumptions' or 'pretending' that you know or a book (bible) 'knows' or 'tells' you but I just don't buy that. The beauty of it is that you are here today and you can be thankful and enjoy all the life that you have ahead of you. And the test (life) continues with more wonderful questions and experiences :)
