Greenbrier Academy: Wisdom Gathered and Developed by Mike Beswick, Part II

Here are some quick words that have lasting impact:

  • When we see the world through each other’s eyes, we can no longer be enemies.
  • Personality is what you display when you are being watched; character is what you reveal when you believe no one is watching.
  • Most communication is self-centered, designed for our own power, pleasure or control.  Healthy communication and relations focus on empowerment.
  • We are all connected.  I am partially who I am because of meeting you.
  • Don’t take it personally – what people think about you is none of your business.
  • Always do your best – it makes a difference.
  • Words are like spells.  What spell are you going to cast today?
  • Never insult the alligator until you are across the river.
  • Fear is false evidence that appears real.
  • The boy who rides on the back of a tiger ends up in his belly.
  • Expectations are always the cause of our disappointment.
  • Turn the light on gently.
  • Addiction is anything that interferes with your ability to be honest.
  • Resentment is like drinking poison to kill someone else.
  • If this is the worst thing that happens today, I’m going to have a pretty good day.
  • That may not make you drink, but it will make you thirsty.
  • We expect the future to be like the past.
  • What we call self-defeating behavior is a person’s attempt to manage their life.
  • Seeing other people as the problem is the problem.
  • Seek first to understand.
  • Knowledge speaks; wisdom listens.
  • Love is the answer, regardless of the question.
