Springfield Museums celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday

Happy Birthday, Dr Seuss! I am always oddly inspired by his quotes, I heard: http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=vz38U TDUQtk “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…” Knowing that you pretty much have the free will to do what you want and be who you want to be is kind of cliche, but I always find that even things that I already know should be repeated, so I could better apply it to my existing conditions. Sometimes people think that they are locked in a certain position, like a job or relationship that has them feeling uncomfortably. With your mind and your ability, realize that only you have the power that can put you in a more desired position in life.  (Mar 2, 2014 | post #1)

How Dr. Seuss Quotes Inspire Me

I heard these quotes on this video - http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=EVoXi sXVn-8 - and it occurred to me how they inspire me: “If things start happening, don’t worry, don’t stew, just go right along and you’ll start happening too.” Everyday I witness gargantuan changes, such as WhatsApp bought by Facebook for $19 billion. It is amazing how we have evolved as humans to a degree that people can write code from their keyboards and build empires. Developments such as this have been happening since the early 1990's. I dramatically changed my life by getting involved with internet help desk support, web development, and affiliate marketing in 2003. Once I traded my research habits of scrolling through newspaper microfilm and dewey decimal systems at the library for a Google search and using About.com to learn about computers, I haven’t had much of a professional worry since. I have learned to use tools like this very Medium (pun intended) to communicate with other humans and make my way through life. So if you see something new, get involved, and people will start getting involved with you. “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…” Knowing that you pretty much have the free will to do what you want and be who you want to be is kind of cliche, but I always find that even things that I already know should be repeated, so I could better apply it to my existing conditions. Sometimes people think that they are locked in a certain position, like a job or relationship that has them feeling uncomfortably. With your mind and your ability, realize that only you have the power that can put you in a more desired position in life. When Richard Branson’s flight to the Virgin Islands was cancelled, he put up a sign on a private plane, labeled, “Virgin Airlines,” and charged everybody else who was to fly on that cancelled trip $29 to join him, so he could afford to pay the charter. You are always ready to do what you want. Just point yourself in that direction and move. Sound’s oversimplistic? Well the best ideas always are. “Oh, the things you can find if you don’t stay behind!” This hits on laziness, which is something I think many of us fight daily. It feels good to be lazy for the moment. But sometimes I feel like a glutton, if all I did was watch the entire season of House of Cards on a Saturday until the next day. Don’t get me wrong, take some time off. But if you’re wasting time browsing the web, watching TV, oversleeping, or failing to do something that improves yourself, you will never discover anything new. You will never discover what you can become, and what you can do. Learn something new, and do it for personal or professional improvement. Otherwise, you will find, you’ll be left behind by people who are probably not half as smart as you. However, you were the one who decided to watch TV for four hours a day, everyday. So the slow turtle left your quick bunny feet in the dust.  (Feb 27, 2014 | post #1)
