Jack’s Winning Words 11/25/08
“What kind of a world would this world be, If everyone in it were just like me?”
(Quoted in Getting Rich Your Own Way by Brian Tracy) He goes on to ask, “What kind of a country; what kind of a company; what kind of a family.” It’s about values and actions and not about cloning. Why not spend some time pondering, “What kind of a world do I want this world to be?” In reality, it starts with me (and you). ;-) Jack

FROM R.I. IN BOSTON: "If everyone in it were just like me," the world would provide a very limited, narrow slice of life. That is why diversity of people and experiences is really significant and beneficial for me, and I think would be for everyone. To my mind we should never confine ourselves to reading what we already think, listening to people who express what we already believe, and visiting the same places again and again because they pleased us before. Thank God that this world is so diverse, and furthermore that it is ever- changing, always affording us fresh experiences.

FROM GOOD DEBT JON: Been busy traveling songwriting and speaking. Heading through Detroit again today at 1 pm. I liked today’s quote. I am a big fan of Brian Tracy. If you get an opportunity to read Something for Nothing he wrote a year or so ago I think you might enjoy it. It is unlike any of his other books. Heading to Kitchener/Waterloo, Canada. To speak to 100 people in a four year financial planning course. http://www.wealthinstitute.ca/ I’m module 3 in Year One. Brain Tracy was module one. Goal setting.

FROM MOLINER LIZ: My mom always said something similar about diversity and the need for it. The answer was,"It'd be pretty boring." She used to lament the loss of regional restaurants as McDonald's, etc., took over the world.

FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: Perish the thought!!! Everyone has their own gift and I can't imagine what this world would be like if we all had the same one. Yow! Can you imagine the people all collecting photos of old outhouses? I would love this world to be exactly like God wanted it to be. That would be a wonderful world.

Actually, the kind of world I hope to live in is where we all love God with all our hearts and minds and souls and each other as ourselves. Then there will be hope in extreme wealth but also in extreme deprivation and I guess we all could get through it all, we're just so temporarily in this world after all. I wonder, if we were all the same, we would actually find it easier or harder to love each other as ourselves. Knowing sometimes what so many of us think of ourselves, it might be harder. I'll be pondering these WW all day long.
