SHARING SOME UPLIFTING AND INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHTS

Here are some short thoughts, quotations and key points (many from sources unknown) that I have collected and jotted down over the years in my “little yellow book”. over the years (instead of stamps or bottle-tops) . They have “kept me on track” (at least I think so), uplifted, encouraged and even greatly inspired me along the writing journey … and hope they may do the same for you, whatever path in life you may choose to travel. Perhaps I’ll include them in a new manuscript, so will share with you. ENJOY…

Three resolutions for human behaviour:

That individual human beings will cultivate:

self respect

self reliance

and

self discipline

co-operation, rather than competition

(from a letter by a John Garland in the New Zealand Herald)

Write words of encouragement and inspiration.

Many small steps by many people will reach the destination.

and the things I am good at making things with are words.”

“Faith is the seed we plant…and our hearts are the soil.”

The way we live is far more important than what we believe

“We do not have to be products of our conditioning. We are moulded more by our futures than by our pasts.”

– Tony Campalo (but perhaps it’s up to us to decide to move forward and CHOOSE that state of consciousness)

What (and where you’ve been is not nearly as important as what and who you choose to become.”

from http://www.selfgrowth.com/experts/craig_lock.html About the Author Craig has a 'passion' for writing books that tell stories about people doing positive things in this often so hard, sometimes unkind world, occasionally cruel, yet always amazing world - true stories that leave the reader feeling uplifted, empowered and hopefully even inspired. https://www.createspace.com/3779691/ and http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 Craig Lock loves to encourage and empower people to be the best they can possibly be, and to create what they want in life. Craig has learnt plenty from the "school of life" (still "battered and bruised") and also from a few "hard knocks on the head". He is an extensive world traveller (on a "shoestring budget") and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his life’s savings on airfares. He is still sliding down the razor blade of life on the beautiful undiscovered island that is New Zealand, somewhere near the bottom (rude!) of the world near Antarctica. There he talks to the 60 million sheep! Craig has been involved in the corporate world (life assurance) for over twenty years in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. However, through a strange set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ...and with nothing else to do, he started writing. That was five years ago. Five published books later and having written another twenty manuscripts (on widely differing subjects - well what else is there to do here?)... this is where Craig is in the "journey/adventure" that is life. Craig has taught at the local Polytechnic, as well as running a successful creative writing course (not teaching sheep!). He was the author of (as far as we know) the first creative writing course on the internet Craig has many varied interests and passions. He is particularly interested in the field of psychology – studying the human mind and what makes different people "tick-tock grandfather clock". He is fascinated by the "overlap between psychology and the dimension of spirituality". One of his missions in life is helping people make the most of their hidden potential and so finding their niche in life... so that they are happy. Craig’s various books probably tell more about his rather "eventful" life best (no one could believe it!). He writes books with serious messages and themes, then as a contrast "rather crazy, wacky stuff"…to keep him sane here. As an ‘anonymouse’ person wrote: "All of us are born mad; some of us remain so." Well nothing else much happens in quiet provincial New Zealand, other than headlines like "Golf Ball Thrown at Policeman" and "Beach Toilet Closed for Season.".
