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.

A good rebuke: quiet, brief, specific, warning the consequences of further faulty choices. A bad rebuke: loud, repeated, condemning and relying on emotional pressure to effect change.

“Once bitten, twice shy” causes utter chaos in our lives and marriages, until we are enabled to talk back to our feelings with a better truth, e.g. “this is not the same dog that bit me.”

If you try to reason with evil

If you try to reason with evil, remember that its fear and hatred make it blind to any rationale and your motive will always be misconstrued.
