There is no surprise when there is no expectation

Getting upset with failure is a waste of time. You can't be surprised if you don't expect success every time. Being surprised with an unexpected outcome delays the focus on dealing with it. Being prepared could be easy as not expecting a certain outcome. Our efforts can be towards our desired goals. But we should be able to just deal with whatever the outcome to our efforts maybe. 

Everybody is entitled to a wrong opinion

I don't mean everyone should have a wrong opinion. I mean everybody will have a wrong opinion. The sooner everyone realises that, the sooner the wrong can be corrected. Just because everyone can have an opinion, it doesn't make those opinion right. An opinion can be wrong just as much as it can be right. Changing an opinion is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of wisdom and the ability to learn. 

Wisdom is the ability to tell the difference between caution and doubt

We are always told to be cautious but at the same time told have no dobt in ourselves, to be confident in our decisions.. we are told not second-guess ourselves but Be Careful when we cross the Road. Doubt and caution are not the same sign over coin but rather the edges of it. The trick is to figure out whether this edge is at the top or bottom of the coin when the coin is stood up. It looks the same but our experience and knowledge will tell the difference. The real problem is when people don't want to know the difference

Getting out of a hole is the same, whether its the hole you fell in or the one you dug yourself and jumped in

Lets face it. everybody has problems, It fell on you or you went looking for it. But the basic skill to get you out of it is the same. is one my other sites talking about a set of skills to solve problems, It's a tool so that you can use for your own or use it to help someone.

The world will always feel empty because it's our emotions that fill the void.

Originally, "the world is really empty, it's our emotions that make it full." A variation "the world is really empty, it's our emotions that fill it." People who feel the world is empty are often not interfacing or interacting with others, be it electronically or face to face. While face to face is better, honest communication via phones, social media or messaging apps can be as meaningful. Notice the use of the word 'honest'. Honest communication are filled with emotions. When humans are able to connect emotionally, whether it positive or negative, their worlds are no longer empty. Negative emotions have a place. It prevents us from falling prey, warning us of danger. Positive emotions are most fulfilling. The best people are able to take negativity and create positivity.  

Those looking for something absolute in our lives, will find absolutely nothing.

Absolute means perfection or something you can't find fault with or something that unconditional, not limited by any constraints that otherwise effects it lesser contemporaries. In almost everything in this world, imperfections can be found. In fact, what is perfect exists in ideals and ideas, in belief and in abstract. Sincere people looking the absolute are maybe looking for absolution. This gap is where the unscrupulous prey, fooling the pilgrims looking for release from guilt into subjugation of belief or even more guilt.

Being right some of time, fuels all full-time skeptics

James Randi with some expensive art (Photo credit: Wikipedia ) If you are skeptical all the time, you would be right at least once. Being skeptic doesn't means being against anythings nor does it forward another alternative. Being skeptic is creating doubt around something but not enough to dismiss is outright. You can even go ahead dismissing something, knowing that if the that thing fails just once, you are proven right. Your position is save even if that thing is just right only one time. The skeptic can be right once to be proven true, the target of the skepticism, on the other hand, cannot fail. The position is non-committal. If you are wrong, then you can just shrug it off because you didn't say it was wrong in the first place. But you have gloating rights when your skepticism is proved justified, even though only in hindsight.
