Eating Humble Pie today will make it an acquired taste later

Humility is in short supply today, especially when it comes to social media-obsessed millennials. In a culture where narcissism is a form of business, humility becomes a rare commodity. Despite to the contrary, we seem to deny the inevitability of failure, big or small.

Therefore when it does come, failure without humility is often very bitter. More so when rage is the result. Why not prepare, brace for failure and accept it when it comes? Then rise up again, standing up straight and taking that defiant step forward. Onward, to real success.
So nibble on a slice of humble pie today. It may not taste great but so many things are in life. Things that if without, makes our lives a little less. That even the bitter has an edge of sweet. Ask all those coffee connoisseurs.

A great master begins with the mastery of one

Sort of the opposite of the phrase, "jack of all trades, master of none."
Was "Journey of Jack of all Trades begins with the mastery one."

People who don't want to try something because they are afraid they are not good at it, will always wait. But when is someone good at it the first time, all the time?
So try. Be good at it. Repeat.

Want less, fulfilled sooner

Why is it the more we crave, the less content we feel? Everywhere around us, everything tells us to ask for more, aim higher and get more stuff. But does stuff actually fills that hole? Or does it just make it feel deeper, more space to stuff things in. If fulfillment is what we seek, maybe we should do the logical thing. What is shorter than a straight line between two points? A shorter line. So maybe we should stop along the way to that second point. Make more points. Make a shorter line. In short, want less. If we want less, it's likely we can get what we want sooner. Be satisfied sooner. Fulfilled earlier.  And because we are human, we will want more later. Another point along they way. And another. And another. till we reach the other point.

Idiots must understand the difference between being righteous and being right.

Being righteous sometime means being wrong sometime, too. Being right means you are right all the time. Being Right doesn't mean you are right, just as being Left doesn't mean you're wrong.Being a right Idiot means being right. Being a Right Idiot means your twice it An idiot doesn't know how they got it right. An righteous idiot doesn't know how.
