Friday Fun Trifecta #8

If you remember a while back, we did a segment here on SDMcKinley.com called Friday Fun Links. Fun links have evolved into Friday Fun Trifecta, where I will feature one thing of each – music, book and visual arts. Welcome to Friday Fun Trifecta #8, in appreciation for artwork. I’m a bit late on this post – and, as someone once told me, “If you can’t get here on time, just get here when you can.”

Book:

No more Mr. Nice Guy by Dr. Robert Glover

“1If it frightens you, do it.   2Don’t settle. Every time you settle, you get exactly what you settled for.   3Put yourself first.   4No matter what happens, you will handle it.   5Whatever you do, do it 100%.   6If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always got.   7You are the only person on this planet responsible for your needs, wants, and happiness.   8Ask for what you want.   9If what you are doing isn’t working, try something different. 10Be clear and direct. 11Learn to say “no.” 12Don’t make excuses. 13If you are an adult, you are old enough to make your own rules. 14Let people help you. 15Be honest with yourself. 16Do not let anyone treat you badly. No one. Ever. 17Remove yourself from a bad situation instead of waiting for the situation to change. 18Don’t tolerate the intolerable — ever. 19Stop blaming. Victims never succeed. 20Live with integrity. Decide what feels right to you, then do it. 21Accept the consequences of your actions. 22Be good to yourself. 23Think “abundance.” 24Face difficult situations and conflict head on. 25Don’t do anything in secret. 26Do it now. 27Be willing to let go of what you have so you can get what you want. 28Have fun. If you are not having fun, something is wrong. 29Give yourself room to fail. There are no mistakes, only learning experiences. 30Control is an illusion. Let go; let life happen. It”

― Robert A. Glover, No More Mr. Nice Guy

If that Glover fellow put in any more hackneyed, cliched tropes I bet his book would literally explode! Or maybe that’s where all those horrific “Inspirational Bloggers” get their one line posts from…

Just tell me you’re not going to turn into an “Inspirational Blog” with quote of the day posts encouraging us to be all we can be. Please, even if you have to lie to me
😉

Ha ha, what are you saying, that inspiration isn’t fun? 🤣🤣🤣 In that case yes, starting tomorrow there will be an inspirational quote to start every morning. 😝
