Continuing from yesterday’s post, here’s the second installment of Confucius’ wise words.
4. Sharpen Your Tools First
“The expectations of life depend upon diligence; the mechanic that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.”
Confucius said, “Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure.” Whatever you are called to do, if you are to succeed, you must first be prepared. In other words, fail to plan and you plan to fail.
5. To be Wronged is Nothing
“To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it.”
Don’t sweat the small stuff; to be wronged is no great offense. Don’t let the wrongdoing of others ruin your day. Don’t let their negativity occupy your thoughts.
6. Consider the Consequences
“When anger rises, think of the consequences.”
Solomon said, “He that is slow to anger is greater than the mighty.” Always remember to keep your temper in check and to consider the consequences.
Do stay tuned for the concluding part is tomorrow!
