Actually, I love Yip Man’s quote (is it just me or does “Yip Man” sound like a name for a bizarre kind of superhero?). We tend to eat and drink, taking the sustenance for granted. Half the time, we are not even fully aware that we are eating or drinking, absorbed in the TV instead. Yip Man is saying “This is important. Pay attention. The water does not have to be here yet here it is.” He is making us aware in order to fully experience drinking.
We all remember the wisdom Barney Stinson shared with us by saying a lot of funny, motivational and sometimes silly statements, like this one, ‘When I get sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead, True story.’ Yeah, we wish it was easy as that, right? Anyways, if you still need something encouraging to read in order to start a day the way it’s supposed to be, take a look at some short GM quotes.
Make sure that you flex your courage muscle daily. That way when you really need it for something really scary it will be highly developed through daily use. Doing something courageous each day means finding something that you’re fearful of and overcoming that fear to do the thing that you wanted to do. It doesn’t have to be a big thing at first, and you’ll want to start off with small things so that you build up your confidence in your ability to be courageous. As your confidence grows, you can take on bigger and bigger things.
A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give. ~Author unknown
It’s alright if storms are upon you, for they’ll teach you lots about how to sail your ship. Instead of hoping against hope for calm waters, it’s better to embrace the challenges life brings and learn how to handle them. Life is going to present you with a series of events and circumstances that may not be to your liking, and how you deal with them will determine what you get next. Once you learn how to sail your ship, you’ll be able to navigate future challenges even better, and recover more quickly.
There’s a wonderful sense of well-being that begins to circulate… up and down your spine. And you feel something that makes you almost want to smile. So what’s it like to be me? Ask yourself, ‘What’s it like to be me?’ The only way we’ll ever know what it’s like to be you is if you work your best at being you as often as you can, and keep reminding yourself that’s where home is. Bill Murray
