Seeds of Confidence: Ask and Listen


seeds, confidence, food and life. sow those seeds regularly, the harvest is plentiful

This is great, so many can relate to Denis’ statements.  When you take the time to read each intently and relate it to your own life, all of the sudden you will feel a load lift off your shoulders.  Life is so much simpler and rewarding that most allow it to be. Can you tell us why?

Get your priorities straight!  You do realize the more value you give to another, the more value that comes to you, don’t you?  CSea Perkins


It is better to earn the trust and respect of one of your children than to gain notoriety and adulation of the masses.

If you must speak, ask a question.

Unless what you say benefits the other person, don’t say it.

It’s not what I think that counts, nor is it what you think that counts. It’s what I think you think and what you think I think that really counts.

No one listens to a person operating out of self-interest alone.

Sin has many tools, but a lie is the handle that fits them all.

If you attack another person’s beliefs, you are creating an enemy.

Moderation in temper is always a virtue. Moderation in principle is always a vice.

Emperors are overthrown. Empowerers are revered.

Before you state your case, gather the evidence, especially what motivates the other person.

Marriage is not total agreement. It is looking in the same direction together.

Listening without bias or distraction is the greatest value you can pay another person.

—Denis Waitley
