Ayn Rand number four

 

This is one of my favorite saying and I first heard it by listening to Cory Wayne, a life coach.

He extolls the virtue of seeing things as they really are.  Not as we’d like them to look.  Not better.  Not worse.  But exactly as they are.  This helps us to evaluate our circumstances with a clear eye.

Clear eyes help us to know exactly the type of situation we are in or have gotten ourselves into and then we can determine the correct way forward.

Clear direction in our lives help us to have better lives.  We all want better lives.

Knowing our situation and ourselves precisely will determine future actions.  I realize that I am not a bestselling author; however, I am taking the steps to being a bestselling author.

If I have a limited vocabulary then my writing will be limited.  If I do not recognize that in myself then I can muddle around trying to write eloquently without getting much of anywhere.

If I see my limitations then I can remove them.  As Mr. Smallwood, my fifth grade teacher would say, “A word to the wise is sufficient.” 

“We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality”  Ayn Rand
