Some More Bumper Sticker Philosophy #2

Often there’s no time to read an entire book on motivation, self-awareness, self-esteem, or inspiration, or you may simply want the shorthand blurb for an idea. Yesterday’s blog had my early “helpers.”

I call these shorthand blurbs, my life reminders, or Bumper Sticker Philosophy. Time goes on. The list gets deletions, additions, revisions

Here’s my Solid Gold Bumper Sticker List, first used publicly in 1997 ( and they still work) when I started presenting life skills seminars:

And If Not Now, When?

Follow Your Bliss

Is Your Glass Half Empty Or Half Full?

Just Do It!

Who Are Your Cheerleaders? – Stick with folks who support and cheer you on in achieving your goals. Be your own cheerleader too!

Keep Chippin’ Away- What seems like a huge task, is lots easier when chipped down into smaller doable steps.

Respond Rather Than React- React is all emotional- sometimes helpful; response includes some introspective thought before reacting. It works!

May Your Spirit Soar

Oh Yes, I Can!

ASK! ASK! ASK! For What You Want and Need – If you don’t ask, you (usually) don’t get. So ask!

What’s The Worst That Could Happen?

Don’t ‘Should’ On Yourself

You Are A Prize!
