Some easy to Accept and Some are Tuff or Hard to Accept

*Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now
Hard Work Pays off?
I Question This as Hard Work Only Pays off IFOther Folks Know and
Applies HUMANITY in Work, Play, Friends and Family
*A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good
 *Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of checks
This is True as Debters Dont Apply Humanity with a touch of Patience

There is no "instant" way to earn loyalty.
          There is a slow-but-sure way. You don't earn loyalty in a day; you
          earn loyalty with the actions you take day-by-day.
One hitch -- you must add yourself. Ideas, methods, strategies, and
          answers require implementation. The only way loyalty "happens" is if
          you make it happen.

*Two wrongs are only the beginning.
Trouble on a Landslide.
*Evil is that which one believes of
   others. It is a sin to believe evil of
        others, but it is seldom a mistake. --

 Jerry was the kind of guy you love to hate.
  He was always in a good mood and always had something positive to say.

   When someone would asked him how he was doing, he would reply
"If I were any better, I would be twins!"

He was a unique manager, he even had several waiters on staff who had
  followed him around from restaurant to restaurant. The reason the waiters
followed Jerry was because of his attitude.

    He was a natural motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, Jerry was
     there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.

   Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Jerry and
    asked him, "I don't get it! You can't be positive person all of the time. How do
         you do it?"
      Jerry replied, "Each morning I wake up and say to myself, 'Jerry, you have two
       choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be
      in a bad mood.' I choose to be in a good mood.

       Each time something bad happens,  I can choose to be a victim or I can
        choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it.
       Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their
       complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side
          of life."
       "Yeah, right, but it's not that easy," I protested.
       "Yes it is," Jerry said. "Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the
        every situation is a Choice. You choose how you react to situations. You
       choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good or bad
             mood. The bottom line: It's your choice how you live life."
       I reflected on what Jerry said. Soon thereafter, I left the restaurant industry to
       start my own business. We lost touch, but I often thought about him when I
           made a choice about life instead of reacting to it.
       Several years later, I heard that Jerry did something you are never supposed
      to do in a restaurant business: he left the back door open one morning and
        was held up at gunpoint by three armed robbers.
      While trying to open the safe, his hand, shaking from nervousness, slipped off
      the combination. The robbers panicked and shot him.

      Luckily, Jerry was found relatively quickly and rushed to the local trauma
     After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Jerry was released
     from the hospital with fragments of the bullets still in his body.

     I saw Jerry about six months after the accident. When I asked him how he
       was, he replied, "If I were any better, I'd be twins. Wanna see my scars?"
   I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone through his mind
   as the robbery took place. "The first thing that went through my mind was that I
      should have locked the back door," Jerry replied.
    "Then, as I lay on the floor, I remembered that I had two choices: I could
      choose to live, or I could choose to die. I chose to live."
   "Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?" I asked.
    Jerry continued, "The paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going
   to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the emergency room and I saw the
   expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their
       eyes, I read, 'He's a dead man.' I knew I needed to take action."

          "What did you do?" I asked.
     "Well, there was a big, burly nurse shouting questions at me," said Jerry. "She
       asked if I was allergic to anything. 'Yes,' I replied. The doctors and nurses
       stopped working as they waited for my reply, I took a deep breath and yelled,

       Over their laughter, I told them, 'I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I
        am alive, not dead." Jerry lived thanks to the skill of his doctors,  but also
      because of his amazing attitude.

        I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully.
      Attitude, after all, is everything.

Social Security is going broke.
By 2013, Social Security will begin paying out more in benefits than it collects in revenues. The
 Social Security trust fund -- which will be required to provide benefits after that date --
  consists of only federal IOUs. In order to meet the revenue shortfall, the government will have three choices: raise taxes, lower benefits, or privatize the system.
But even this projection may prove unduly optimistic. The 1998 report of the Social Security Trustees assumes that life expectancies are almost two years less than Census Bureau
 estimates. That assumes away about two dozen Social Security payments per person. Therefore,
  Social Security's fiscal problems may be worse.
