Placing things in Perspective

We all have days where we feel challenged. Our bills, boss, mortgage, sewer, traffic, pickup truck, and dog just seem to be aligned with evil. There are many complex axioms and paradigms available to sooth and ponder in order to render sense to our troubles. So at risk of being clich├ęd I have included a simple list to remember the facts of life.


The most destructive habit
The greatest Joy (Giving)
The greatest loss (Loss of self-respect)
The most satisfying work (Helping others)
The ugliest personality trait (Selfishness)
The most endangered species (Dedicated leaders)
Our greatest natural resource (Our youth)
The greatest "shot in the arm (Encouragement)
The greatest problem to overcome (Fear)
The most effective sleeping pill (Peace of mind)
The most crippling failure disease (Excuses)
The most powerful force in life (Love)
The most dangerous pariah (A gossiper )
The world's most incredible computer (The brain)
The worst thing to be without (Hope)
The deadliest weapon (The tongue)
The two most power-filled words (I Can)
The greatest asset (Faith)
The most worthless emotion (Self-pity)
The most beautiful attire (A SMILE)
The most prized possession (Integrity)
The most contagious spirit (Enthusiasm)

Now pick up your musical instrument and get together with a friend or stranger and make music!
