“…If the 1/3rd glass…represented liquid gold; then I’d rather have the distinction of having acquired 1/3rd glass of liquid gold, than 2/3rd’s glass of air…”

Which is appropriate…. the level of my success or the level of my failure? Either is appropriate; the better question is: For which do you want to be recognized? Is a glass half full, or half empty? Confusing….not for me; From a business perspective…I’d rather be known for, or measured by…my level of success.  Think about […]

“…How about if you add to that tip…a broad smile, and generous ‘Thank You’..?”

Is  just being FAIR enough? Many of us… sometimes …just need more than what reason and fairness dictate. For me? I’ve tried to be FAIR all of my adult life, and seemingly, I have succeeded   I’ve even gone beyond what is considered as fair, and I’m pretty much recognized as having that trait. I’m not […]

“…Do we live in a fake house, a fake job, or involved in a fake relationship? Are we disparate to find peace in our life…?”

Do you live in a “fake house, have a fake job, or involved in a fake relationship?” Are you just a BIG FAKE? We all have been in out of these phenomena at one time or another in our lives, but, too often, we haven’t come to terms with it…yet. We’re still hiding in the closet. […]

“…Do we perform our moral obligations? Or, have we gone AWOL…?”

Did you “show-up” today? Did you follow up… or complete your task, or assignment? Did you tell the truth about, this or that, the whole truth…so help you God? Did you pay certain bills on time? Did you attend your son’s basketball game, as promised? Did you go shopping with you wife, as she has […]

“…I would be remiss if I didn’t seize this opportunity to “thank all of you,” for taking the time to read my gibberish ( disguised as WISDOM)…”

To My Friends, Subscribers, Readers, and Family: For the last several months, I’ve had a terrible time with my website (BrOOKS-of-WISDOM), as it has not wanted to be very cooperative. I won’t bore you with the details, but the bottom line is: I’ve been making my “daily postings” as usual, every day, but find that […]

“…Anyone can become a boss… but it’s the BEST-OF-THE-REST who are able to remain the BOSS…”

They are the Boss, and we are not. Anyone can become a boss… but it’s the BEST-OF-THE-REST who are able to […]

“…W-O-W…it was the worst pain that I had EVER endured in my life. I just wanted to know if I could endure the PAIN without actually dying…”

Courage: We all…must come out of hiding. There are some number of us… who are very courageous; doing what others fear, intimidated by; and often at the risk of great physical pain or discomfort. About 15 years ago… when my brother was diagnosed with Stage-4 Colon Cancer; I had never had a colonoscopy, and I […]

“… ‘Why kill myself over this?’ Maybe I should just put in my time, giving just the minimum effort and that will be good enough…”

One night, while sleeping in his cabin, a man saw light fill his room, and suddenly, God appeared; telling the man he had work for him to do. God showed him a large rock in front of his cabin, and explained that he was to push against the rock with all his might. For many […]

“…Serious leaders don’t sit around waiting…they get busy…”

Nothing happens until we SPEAK-UP. If you’re waiting on someone else to do your speaking, then you’re in for a long wait. For me: I’m not one to sit around waiting for something to happen. I’ve always been the aggressor. My job is to make it happen. Not bragging…it’s just a characteristic that God gifted […]
