Cognitive Dissonance

“It is human nature to think wisely and act foolishly” (Antatole France). How are your actions representing your thoughts? Would you be proud to share all sound and video footage of thoughts and acts taking place behind closed doors? All of us have shortcomings we are not proud of. Let’s re-examine our life principles, moral codes, philosophies, and standards. Prioritize values and virtues that hold the most conviction and noble clout, while persistently putting them into practice each day. Actions truly do speak resoundingly louder than words, although describe our thoughts more. Be emotionally skillful and mature, behaving in a controlled manner, taking responsibility for all actions and subsequent good and bad consequences, while patiently walking or running through this joyous life.

Actions Create Growth

“Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed” (Proverbs 16:3 NLT). God does not place something in our heart that we cannot accomplish. Let personal moral codes, principles, and life philosophy guide your thoughts, attitudes, words, actions, behaviors, routines, and lifestyle as you navigate through this colorful adventurous jungle terrain, called life. When I am proven my ways are wrong or can be better, I change my vantage point. How about you? This can lead to minds and behaviors cultivated for massive growth and delight.

Fate is Still a Choice

Nonjudgmentally taking care of perpetrators in the hospital is possible attributed to God’s grace bestowed. I thank God for not critically harming anyone because of my teenage folly and lack of direction, purpose, principles, moral code and positive life philosophy at the time. Numerous heart-breaking stories of lives cut way too short makes me ineffably sad, while motivating me to help solve the global poor decision-making pandemic.

People smoke cigarettes leading to fatal maladies, while many tragically gasp their last breaths and die from cancer, emphysema, stroke, heart attack or infection, wasting their last days stuck, fully dependent on life support. Heart disease, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease, among other ailments, due to diabetes, high blood pressure, sedentary lifestyles, neglect, noncompliance, and other preventable conditions are motivating factors toward helping stop the unnecessary early demise and poor quality of living that so many people may or may not consciously be aware they are choosing and creating for themselves. Becoming lucidly alert, vividly aware, and keenly knowledgeable about how precious and fragile life truly is before it’s too late is possible by spreading messages of hope, inspiration, and practical ways to live bountiful joy-filled lives.

Consistency

“When people agree with me, I always feel I must be wrong” (Oscar Wilde). Legacies, principles, moral codes, and life philosophies can be passed down for individuals to adopt or dismiss according to personal discretion and personality. The vast greatness of legacies is in doing, struggling, being, and becoming a person of ethically upright character that can impregnate the minds, hearts, bodies, spirits, and souls of anyone whom chooses. Our privileged opportunity deciding who we are to be each day by giving and taking seeds of fruitful success is an advantageous privilege for us all. Don’t stop trying, learning, and relentlessly pursuing becoming the greatest version of yourself in order to serve and give the universe what she may otherwise lack. Not trying because of fear is unacceptable.

Growth Mindset

Finding culprits to difficulties via affectionate truthful self-reflection and being vulnerable to honest feedback, combined with forming great questions and harnessing a teachable attitude, inevitably results in acquiring life-transforming solutions. Rid growth-limiting, know-it-all (KIA), nonsensical arrogance. Let’s be prudent by asking oneself superior queries, while refraining from the folly of questioning others’ desires in hopes of finding answers to our own issues, especially when they have not done what we aspire toward. Resolution and personal development are persistent perpetual inside works only we can fix and build. Our problems are not anyone else’s responsibility except ours to own and solve. Choose to act wisely, therefore be wise. Wise plans fused with consistent uncompromising prudent choices yields positive results. It’s a simple, yet profound philosophy. Consider embracing, integrating, and infusing good philosophy into your daily rituals.
