Enhancing Relationships . . .

Enhancing Relationships . . .
Trust..TRUST is a very important factor for all relationships. When trust is broken, it is the end of the relationship. Lack of trust leads to
suspicion, suspicion generates anger, anger causes enmity and enmity may result in separation. A telephone operator told me that one day she received a phone call.
She answered, "Public Utilities Board." There was silence. She
repeated, "PUB." There was still no answer. When she was going to cut off the line, she Heard a lady's voice, "Oh, so this is PUB.

Thoughts on Advertising

Advertising is the fine art of convincing people that debt is better than frustration.

Advertising helps raise the standard of living by raising the standard of longing.

Advertising transforms a yawn into a yearn.

Advertising must be effective. The other day my son was saying grace and he thanked God for this daily, slow-rising, butter- crusted, vitamin-enriched bread.

Letting Go

Letting go

To let go: Doesn't mean to stop caring, it means I can't do it myself

To let go: Is not to cut myself off, it is the realization that I can't control another

To let go: Is not to enable, but to allow learning from natural consequences

To let go: Is to admit powerlessness, which means the outcome is not in my hands

To let go: Is not to try to change or blame another, I can only change myself

To let go: Is not to care for, but to care about

To let go: Is not to fix, but be supportive

To let go: Is not to judge, but allow another to be human

To let go: Is not to be in the middle arranging outcomes, but to allow others to effect their own outcomes

To let go: Is not to be protective, it is to permit another to face reality

To let go: Is not to deny, but to accept Is not to nag, scold, or argue, but to search out my own shortcomings and to correct them

To let go: Is not to adjust everything to my desires, but to take each day as it comes and cherish the moment

To let go: I…
