A wise person doesn’t just digest every bit of information he is fed. While listening, he is instinctively examining the source of that information (the person who is sharing it). The way he handles the knowledge–whether to believe, disbelieve, remain neutral or other–depends upon whether the source is a natural gossiper, back-biter, snake, or someone who is honorable and trustworthy. When it comes to information, always examine your source: It makes all the difference in the world.

Don’t get used to mediocrity. You are more valuable and more capable than you think. Think better thoughts, dream bigger dreams and you may be surprised at how far from mediocre you truly are.
