“Our attitude should be “I’m going to Trust… even when life doesn’t make sense.
“Our attitude should be “I’m going to serve… whether I understand it or I don’t understand it.”
Despite all the good in the world, we face tough things in life.
The worst thing you can do is ask why.
Listen to this wonderful thought leader:
“When we face the unanswered questions of life, your attitude should be I’m going to trust…. wherever I understand it or not. [Life’s] not looking for whiners. [Life’s] looking for warriors. So [if I don’t understand ] I’m going to put it into my ‘I don’t understand file’ and move on.”
You might not have gotten that deal or received a no from your marriage proposal. Maybe you got turned down from the 10th school, 11th job interview, 12th apartment application, turned down from the 13th grant, from the 14th patent, the 15th venture capital pitch.
YOU may be saying,“What am I to do!’
And frustration, dismay, hurt builds…
Yet we have to stop that “internal movie” of dismay. Stop playing over disbelief, frustration. Create a new film.

Money can’t buy happiness.
Sometimes we forget this. Remember, it was the Beatles who brought this up through their songs. They had powerful messages which made us think. So the next time you are enjoying one of their songs, remember, too, their life advice. Money can’t buy happiness.
Strong relationships do.
Working at something you love can bring it. Spending time with those you respect does. Adhering to your values does. Relationships, sincere work, people and values bring you happiness. Focus on those four areas, and not only will you have happiness, but the money will come. You’ll be doing what you love to do, and that will surely be compensated.
“In looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if they don’t have the first, the other two will kill you.” – Warren Buffett
Warren Buffett, CEO and major shareholder of Berkshire Hathaway, a company worth around $150 billion, is a highly known business magnate who is invariably featured in the list of the top 10 wealthiest people in the world. Unlike many other multi-billionaires, however, is his public stance against the lavish living and excessive spending that many others in his economic situation engage in. On multiple occasions, Mr. Buffett has explained his plans for leaving 99% of his inheritance for social and public works and not to his family, saying “I want to give my kids just enough so that they would feel that they could do anything, but not so much that they would feel like doing nothing.”
Mr. Buffett is well known for his humor and his frugal lifestyle, which includes living in the same house since 1958 and regularly enjoying Cherry Coke, Utz Potato Sticks, and Cookies and Cream ice cream. “I checked the actuarial tables, and the lowest death rate is among six-year-olds. So I decided to eat like a six-year-old,” he said in a Fortune interview.

‘I know my older sister loves mebecause she gives me all her old clothesand has to go out and buy new ones.’– Lauren, age 4
Every time I went to the restroom or got up to get a drink, I simply took a couple of the boxes and composted them. I am sure that the Starbucks personnel are responsible for cleaning up any messes. But how nice if we could help them by doing so ourselves, and providing a good example.
