This Episode pulls out some of my favorite Maya Angelou quotes and the impact they have had on my life.

  1. When People show You Who They Are Believe Them, the first time
  2. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel”
  3. Never make someone a priority, when all you are to them is an Option”
  4. When you Learn, Teach, when you Get, Give”
  5. Try to be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud
  6. I do not trust people who don’t love themselves and yet tell me, ‘I love you.’ There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt
  7. “We sometimes think that we can be better than another person. The truth is no human being could be more human than another human being. You can be younger and prettier and finer and richer, but you can’t be more human.”- Dr.Maya Angelou – I Am Human, I am a Human, NOTHING HUMAN can be alien to ME
  8. When you know you are of worth, you don’t have to raise your voice, you don’t have to become rude, you don’t have to become vulgar; you just are. And you are like the sky is, as the air is, the same way water is wet. It doesn’t have to protest.

“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.” – Maya Angelou

We all have days when we’re feeling a little”cloudy.” It’s worth remembering that you have the power to brighten someone else’s gloomy day with an act of kindness — a helpful gesture, an encouraging word, or maybe even just a smile. Who knows? Maybe the next time you have a cloudy day, you’ll find a “rainbow” of your own.

cHub002 – 8 Ways To Live A Life with NO REGRETS

There is no greater pain than the pain of Regret! Regret can cause you to stay locked in your homes, cause you to never love again, never laugh again, and in the case of Dr. Maya Angelou, never speak again. It’s time we learn how to Live a Life with NO REGRETS…let’s take this journey together…

Today’s episode is: “8 Ways To Live A Life with NO REGRETS”

There are so many people living in such misery because of mistakes made, or things that may have happened to them or maybe they got that way as a result of a circumstance they had no control over. I mentioned in the opening that Dr. Maya Angelou once lived in regret, yeah can you believe that? One of the greatest poet, and writers in the world was once in bondage over regret to the point she did not speak.

[The Story of what happened with Dr. Maya Angelou – http://www.achievement.org/achiever/maya-angelou/]

I wanted to share 8 ways, I believe you can live a life with NO REGRETS

#1 – Follow your gut Instincts – I think one of the biggest reasons many people are living with regret is because they failed to follow their instincts. You know that ‘thing’ or feeling you have about a person,place or thing? That pull at your entire being that says “Hmmm, I’m not sure this is a good decision”. There are people right now who have shut themselves out from other people and society in general because regret that could have been avoided had they followed their instincts.

#2 – Follow your Dreams –

#3 – Learn the power of NO –

#4 – Don’t take life so seriously

#5 – Be True to Yourself – When we deny any part of our authentic self, we die a little death on the inside. Our uniqueness makes us who we are. By being true to ourselves, we also give everyone else permission to do the same

#6 – Be Adaptable – How many times have we missed opportunities because we were adamant that OUR WAY was the only way. When you tried someone several times and it doesn’t work, or you’re not getting the full end result you envisioned, then be adaptable and take a difference approach. Keep changing your approach until your desired outcome is realized.

#7 – Practice Forgiveness –

#8 – “Leave Nothing Unsaid” –
