…Chris Olson: Logical negativist. Flourished in the last part of the 20th century. Propounded a set of laws the world generally ignores, to its detriment…

  1. There is only where I am, today, and what happened yesterday to put me here; and yes, there is tomorrow, a tomorrow I cannot foresee or guarantee, one I can only prepare for by doing my best to hang in there today.
  2. Outer beauty doesn’t really exist if it is not matched by an inner counterpart.
  3. The true measure of self-worth is actually comprised of intangibles; money is a detestable way of keeping score.
  4. Act like you already are whatever it is you want to be.
  5. Even if you doubt that you’ll ever be able to make up for your losses, don’t give up on trying to win.
  6. Don’t wait until it’s too late to appreciate all that you have.
  7. Be who you are, not who you think others want you to be.
  8. Follow through on anything and everything you commit to.
  9. Don’t dwell on disappointment. Almost everybody will let you down at some point.
  10. Realize that there’s a huge difference between being cheap and spending wisely.
  11. 93.7% of the things that upset you, aren’t worth getting upset over.
  12. Life isn’t about how much work you can do or how many possessions you can acquire; it’s about making lasting memories you can cherish forever.
  13. Don’t let people tell you who they are, let them show you.
  14. Look people in the eye and smile, even if you have to fake it.
  15. Surround yourself with people who will make you a better person, not those who bring you down.
  16. Don’t be offended by the ignorant.
  17. Learn to appreciate the wisdom that only comes from age and maturity.
  18. Just because it isn’t, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be.
  19. Define yourself and live within that definition. Don’t let other people or easily surmountable obstacles decide who you are.
