Today’s tip for Amazingness:
It Turns out your Mom was Right!
40 Things Mom was right about
As we get older we begin to realize that our parents actually knew something and appreciate the wisdom; it is part of what gives us our own momisms, or dadisms, or youisms. Here are a few from my life. I left out the stranger ones and they are probably not going to turn out to be true, but now I know not to judge, time will tell!
40 things mom was right about:
- Put a little lipstick on, it adds color to your face
- Wear sunscreen
- Drink plenty of water
- Get a good nights sleep
- Take a jacket
- Go to the bathroom before you leave
- It’ll get better before you get married
- Take care of your feet and teeth, they have to last a lifetime
- If wishes were horses, beggars would ride. This one was very popular with one mom! Used whenever I said “I wish…”
- If bullfrogs had wings, they wouldn’t go around bumping their butts all day. Usually said when I said “If…”
- Mind your Manners
- Write thank you notes
- Dress up a little when you are feeling down
- Kill them with kindness
- It isn’t the end of the world
- Don’t holler till your hurt
- Intelligent people never get bored – in other words, you’re smart figure out something to do!
- It only takes a second to do it right the first time
- To hold onto something sometimes you have to let it go
- Pray first
- For every end there is a new beginning
- Play nice
- Do your best
- Just Have fun
- To never try is to fail
- Count your blessings
- Don’t count your eggs before they hatch
- You can do anything you set your mind to
- Be courteous
- Don’t lie
- Let others go first
- Don’t interrupt
- Life isn’t always fair
- You’ll understand when you are older
- Never stop dreaming
- Never stop learning
- Look it up. I asked a lot of questions and this was the answer, but as a result it bread a love of learning. It is so much better to “look it up” then to be handed the answer.
- Get a good night’s sleep
- You are what you eat
Double moms, double momisms!
What life lessons have you learned from your parents? I recommend taking a little time to reflect on, maybe write down the tidbits your parents have passed down and see how many you think are true and if you gain a new appreciation for your parents as a result.

100 Days to Amazing! You can do amazing things. I believe you can; you believe you can too!
What the 100 Days is about:
I was at the Shaklee Global Conference August 12-16th and we were challenged to 100 Days of Amazing with the question of what could we accomplish in 100 days if we really tried? I was inspired by the challenge, both as a business builder who wants to grow my business in 100 days and as an individual! What could I do in 100 days? This blog is a journey, an exercise in learning ways to be the best me, I can be and to help you be the best you, you can be while I’m at it!
Thanks for joining me on this journey!
