Act a Fool!
Act a Fool! – Daily Word April 1, 2014
TO HEAR THE AUDIO VERSION OF THE DAILY WORD **
appy Tuesday my thinkers of outside the box! Welcome to the first day of the second quarter and the beginning of the rest of your life! In the tradition of April 1st being April fools day, today’s Daily Word is dedicated to Acting a FOOL! Foolish is defined as a person or action that is lacking good sense or judgment; in essence this person is unwise, stupid, silly, thoughtless, or idiotic… In a world that thinks that being the same or following norms is wise, it it imperative that you allow yourself to become the former! As George Bernard Shaw once eloquently said “The reasonable person adapts themselves to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to them-self. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable person.” ACT A FOOL! Be foolish enough to think the impossible is possible! Be foolish enough to believe that you can achieve all of your dreams and aspirations! And be foolish enough to know that you are greater than your current circumstance! Trying to fit your unique self into a box with everyone else might be the smartest thing you can do if you listen to the outside world! Play dumb and continue to live out your dreams to the fullest! They say you only have one life to live but if you do it right, once is more than enough!
“Some of the world’s greatest feats were accomplished by people not smart enough to know they were impossible.”
“The visionary lies to himself, the liar only to others.”
“You must be the person you have never had the courage to be. Gradually, you will discover that you are that person, but until you can see this clearly, you must pretend and invent.”
“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake.”
-Francis Bacon, Sr.
“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”
“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.”
“To be a great champion you must believe you are the best. If you’re not, pretend you are.”
“Be who you want to be, do what it takes to be that way, and in time, you will have what you want in life.”
-Darren L Johnson
