2008 List of Potential Wisdom from the Blogging Writer

Over the past few months, I've had a few rough patches - and still going. But I've also picked up a few good life lessons, and they not only apply to my life, but are well worth sharing with others - especially writers and bloggers.

Follow the things that speak to you, ignore the things that you don't identify with, and if nothing on this list speaks to you - write your own list! Maybe the first point of wisdom on your new list will be, "If you want something done right - do it yourself". So here's my 2008 List of "Potential Wisdom".
  1. Don't be afraid to go after what you want. If you believe in yourself enough, others will believe in you, too.
  2. People only know about you what you tell them, so only tell them what you want them to know about you.
  3. Don't say anything you may want to take back.
  4. Always be honest with what you say. The truth is often an offense, but never a sin.
  5. Take time each day to accomplish a goal - even if you have to make one up on the fly.
  6. Learn to listen to others, and let them inspire you.
  7. When you know that you know nothing, you are truly ready to learn.
  8. Have no regrets, just learn from your mistakes.
  9. If you ask ten different people a question, you're likely to get ten random answers that just don't fit your unique situation. But if you ask yourself what's in your heart, you'll get the only answer that's right for you. (Although you can always use those ten answers for a heavy brainstorming session!)
  10. You can reinvent yourself at any moment. All you have to do is FORGET WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK OF YOU. Don't worry about what people will think, you are different. You can choose at any moment to be completely different, go somewhere else, or be what you want to be. Just get up, put yourself out there, and DO IT!
