Human faults are like garden weeds
Another great quote from one of my heroes, Napoleon Hill.
I hope you have a day filled with positive thoughts and are able to find a way to spin things that happen into the best possible outcome. Use “Up-Spiral-Thinking” to put the best possible spin on everything. You are in control of your day and decide how you let people affect you. Avoid the energy vampires and move on.
Make it a great day!
Human faults are like garden weeds. They grow without cultivation and soon take over the place if they aren’t thinned out.
Habits are formed so slowly that most of us don’t realize what is happening until the habits are too strongly entrenched to be broken. Seldom can one pattern of behavior be eliminated without replacing it with another. It has been said that nature abhors a vacuum and will always find something to fill a void. The best way to thin out the “weeds,” or faults in your character, is to identify those traits with which you are dissatisfied and replace them with their positive counterparts. If you have a tendency to lose your temper, for example, find a replacement for your anger. Neutralize it with a positive expression or affirmation, such as, “No one can make me angry unless I let them. I will not let anyone else control my emotions.”
