We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are. - Anais Nin

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
WINNERS VERSUS LOSERS
1. A winner says, "Let's find out." A loser says, "Nobody knows."
2. When a winner makes a mistake, he says, "I was wrong." When a loser makes a mistake, he says, "It wasn't my fault."
3. A winner goes through a problem. A loser goes around it, and never gets past it.
4. A winner makes commitments. A loser makes promises.
5. A winner says, "I'm good, but not as good as I ought to be." A loser says, "I'm not as bad as a lot of other people are."
6. A winner tries to learn from those who are superior to him. A loser tries to tear down those who are superior to him."
7. A winner says, "There ought to be a better way to do it." A loser says, "That's the way it's always been done here."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Sal, a pilot for a major airline, carries his running clothes in a backpack, freeing his hands for his luggage. On one trip, he told me, he noticed passers-by grinning at him in the terminal. Sal smiled back. Maybe some of them were on my last flight, he thought.
His ego was brimming until he got to the cockpit and stowed his bags. That's when he saw the "Parachute" sign his co-workers had stuck to his backpack.
