What does it mean to argue with ignorance? (just curious)

I lost a husband and daughter to their alcohol addiction. I say "show" the people your love every single day instead of saying, "I love you." You never know when God will call them home.

Here is one of my life lessons:

1. Life is supposed to surprise and challenge you.
2. The problem is not in what life gives you, but rather the negatives which you accept and become accustomed to receiving from it.
3. What matters in life is what you decide is right for you and at the same time how you choose to make it happen
4. Life is full of unexpected ups and downs. This must not be a surprise to anyone, but rather an opportunity to enjoy life and to reinvent ourselves

You, what do you think about life itself?
What made you see the world with different eyes from the very first moment after an event or realization did happen to you?

If you wish for more life lessons, read this book Be a WINNER - Get the LOVE YOU want: Happiness and Success Series, it is full of teachings.

Pain is the biggest motivator for change!

You may not have made/ caused all of your problems/pain, but it is your job to fix them.

Good topic Michael!
Time came to me; my life fell apart. No job, no marriage, no possessions of any value. . . However, this turned out to be the most valuable time of my life so far. Finding happiness & contentment when I was a nobody, without money, status, and alone, is priceless.

Armed with several years of coaching and leadership training experience I created a self help method that enables a person to find contentment at a level of self that has nothing and is everything. It took me 13 months to turn that into a DIY self help book format. It has just gone live on To ensure I am in a position to deliver my work to the world I pay my bills by being a self employed direct sales person. I am mentioning this because of the "if only you had the time" part. I think you have to make space available for your wishes to flourish in.

Best wishes, Nicolaas EngelbertusThe 7 step guide for resilience

During a period of insanity (great opening phrase, ain't it?) I learned that I am no better or worse than anyone else - I learned that we all make mistakes, and that, so long as those mistakes are teaching us better how to love, they serve a purpose.

My husband and I have been married for 35 years, and from day one, every time we embarked on a new project we heard nothing but naysaying by my parents - never a word of encouragement. "You're going to fail", "Someone will design a better ______, cheaper, faster", etc. But we didn't let their negativity stop us from pursuing our dreams in life, and we now have a house we physically built, two airplanes my husband built, and a highly profitable software company (with the amazing software my husband created), to show for it. Lesson learned: Tune out the naysayers in your life and surge ahead with your plans. When they tell you YOU can't do something, what they are really saying is that THEY can't do it. Don't let them hold you back - a big part of the satisfaction is in proving them wrong!! Over and over again...just don't expect them to ever give you a pat on the back, or say "good job" or admit that you succeeded though...but you won't need their approval since you will feel fulfillment from within. I shudder to think of where we would be in life if we had taken their negativity to heart!!
