What is your philosophy?

This week the theme is philosophy and it’s something I’ve been working with and on and around for more than 20 years – that we need to have our own personal philosophy.


The person who most affected this desire in me was Jim Rohn, a businessman and deep thinker who maintains that it’s our philosophy about life that determines our path and results.


 – so this is a special week for me and our first quote – though long is also wonderful.


George Matthew Adams said,


“Every one of us, unconsciously, works out a personal philosophy of life, by which we are guided, inspired, and corrected, as time goes on.

It is this philosophy by which we measure out our days, and by which we advertise to all about us the man, or woman, that we are…

 It takes but a brief time to scent the life philosophy of anyone. It is defined in the conversation, in the look of the eye, and in the general mien of the person.

It has no hiding place. It’s like the perfume of the flower – unseen, but known almost instantly.

It is the possession of the successful, and the happy. And it can be greatly embellished by the absorption of ideas and experiences of the useful of this earth.”


So, what is your philosophy? Have you given it any thought?


And to help you, here is the definition of Philosophy –

The study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence, esp. when considered as an academic discipline


a theory or attitude held by a person or organization that acts as a guiding principle for behavior.


Our philosophy determines our behavior.


You Create Your Day by the way You Think! Be Present!

Go make it a Magnificent Day!


Blessings, Shawna
