Daily Insights

Daily Insights are insightful truths about reality that empower us to transform our way of thinking.

They are often challenging, and give us the coaching and courage to behave in a way we might never have thought of. They’re great to dwell on and remind ourselves of throughout the day.

The Daily Insights book can be purchased through the Wisdom Shop. Book sections have been indicated for each Insight.

Acceptance of the person

Remember that acceptance of the person doesn’t necessarily imply approval of their actions. (Otherwise who can love the unlovely?)
