The Genius of Dr. Seuss – Part Two

Monday, August 29th, 2011

Previously, I started a discussion about the genius of Dr. Seuss and how if you really look deeply into some of the concepts in his child-friendly books, you see the life lessons he was teaching us sublimely in many cases as we just read the books out loud and enjoyed their rhyming features with funny words. Here are a few more examples of his life lessons for each of us:

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” – (Happy Birthday to You!) – It reminds me of another quote of his that says “why fit in when you were born to stand out?” No one else is like you. Find your uniqueness and embrace it. Be you – no matter what.

“If things start happening, don’t worry, don’t stew, just go right along and you’ll start happening too.” – Quote – So many times in business and in life, we fight change, but as we know, change is inevitable. Quit fighting it. We all know if we stand still while things are moving ahead, we ultimately fall behind. Take a step, take a chance, get out of your comfort zone. You will be amazed at how much you too will start “happening.”

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.” – (Horton Hears a Who) – You just never know who will be your next best strategic partner or mentor or friend. Sometimes they come in the most unique packaging, and if you go through life thinking you will surround yourself with who you think are the hot shots and the big wigs in the world of business (and in life in general), you will miss out on all the wonderfulness that is in this world by those whom you do not deem as important enough. Keep reaching for the stars, but watch where you step to get there.

And one of my all-time favorites…

“You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so…get on your way!” – (Oh, the Places You’ll Go) – Just get out there and make things happen! You are incredible and have all the right gifts right now to get up that mountain and make a difference! Go do it-NOW!

Dr. Seuss Was a Genius When It Comes to Being in Business – Shoot, About Life in General

Friday, August 26th, 2011

I spent many nights with both of my children reading Dr. Seuss – Green Eggs and Ham was one of my favorites, and yes, I did get the concept of that one – don’t say you don’t like something unless you try it first, but have you read one of his books or some of his quotes as an adult not reading to a child? You can learn a lot about business, marketing, social media, school, and just life. Here are just a few to get you started:

“From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere.” – (One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish) – Through our lives, professional and personal, we are thrown into stressful situations that sometimes we believe will are overwhelming. If we would just take a step back and remove ourselves from the situation a bit, we just might see the humor in it and be able to move on.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – (I Can Read with My Eyes Shut) – Nowadays, we have the ability to learn just about anything with a click of a mouse. Take some time everyday to learn something new – never stop learning. It’s true – the more you learn, the further you will go in life. My goal is to take at least 30 minutes a day to read from the experts, listen to a webinar and put some new information into my brain. What about you?

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those that matter don’t mind and those that mind don’t matter.” (Quote) – This rings so incredibly true to me. Quit worrying about what other people think. Be authentic, be real in your business, on social media, and personally. You are perfectly you, and those that truly matter will support and cheer you on to success.

And I’m just getting started. Check out my next blog as well to learn more life lessons from a genius children’s book author.
