Each one of us has a phrase which leads his/ her life, more or less smile.gif I have a few which I like and find VERY truthful and inspiring:

'Music is my mistress and she plays second fiddle to none!' (Duke Elington)

'Carpe diem' (Latin saying, meaning 'Live the moment')

'It is not the strongest or the most intelligent of species that survives, but the ones who are most responsive to change' (Charles Darwin)


What would be yours and how did you come by it? What made you choose it as your guiding principle through life?

If at first you don't succeed, then get someone else to do it. It's called using your initiative!

If at first you succeed, try not to look so astonished!

Well, you all kind of know mine by now laugh.gif

The only opponent is within When all is said and done, it is only us who can allow ourselves to feel negative emotions and harbour negative thoughts and it is only us who will let us fail. Nobody else has that power.

There's loads.. different ones for different days laugh.gif

K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simple, Stupid Don't overcomplicate things unecessarily.

What you put out, you get back Not just in a karma way. I mean it literally.. just like putting information into a computer. If you entertain negative thoughts, the appropriate feelings will follow in your body. I try to spend all my thought time constructively and positively and the physical feelings shall reflect that. It's not easy but it does work.. and it gets easier with practice. smile.gif

Put down the magnifying glass and pick up the mirror Stop over focusing on problems and magnifying them out of proportion. Instead, pick up the mirror, look at yourself and ask yourself 'What am I not doing ?' instead of blaming others or outside circumstances for your issue.

Don't concentrate on the finger... or you will miss all that heavenly glory from the master, Bruce Lee. The finger is not important for it only points to the way. It is the way that is important. Don't get distracted by rules, styles, systems.

I have to agree with Ivan smile.gif Well Said Ben! You are just a fountain of wisdom bud, seriously! I was going to add something but I think you've pretty much covered it. I did come across a great quote from Marty Friedman which seems appropriate here.

"Do everything possible in front of you and those are the things you’re gonna get better at just by not quitting. By not expecting to make great leaps and bounds but an inch here, an inch there, and learning along the way."

~Marty Friedman~

*Oddly enough this quote is almost verbatim what Ben said in the last video chat. Great minds smile.gif

Hmm...have to translate a german saying:

"The way you shout into the forest, the way it will shout back at you" (meaning, however you speak to a person or treat that person, this person will treat you in return).

"I'd rather step into the ring and take a few blows than just standing in the bleachers" (meaning don't hide, step in front of the crowd and do that presentation, speech or song, even if there is the chance you get a bad review...the others will still have to prove they're better or even have the guts to do the same.)

"Cheer up! You're not getting out of this alive anyway!" (Life is too short to waste it with doubts and worries).

"Das Leben ist kein Ponyhof" laugh.gif (Life isn't easy)

Actually" Carpe Diem" translates to "Sieze the day" If I am not mistaken.

Also I was looking at Guitarrero's post. "The way you shout into the forest, the way it will shout back at you" (meaning, however you speak to a person or treat that person, this person will treat you in return).

Here in the U.S. we have the same saying called the Golden Rule and it goes something like,
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Good words to live by. If everyone lived by these words the world would be a better place I think.
With that being said this is a great thread Cos and its very interesting to read all these motto's from all over the world.Great stuff here! nice one man. smile.gif

Peace, Rich....
