So I asked my friends for answers. Sometimes. And family. And anyone. (Some gave me their answers without my even asking – how kind of them!)
Sometimes the answers helped. (As did reading self-growth & spirituality books, DVDs, and videos.) Sometimes they didn't.
Because... As I was to discover in
2008, whilst conceiving of and creating another 'helping people help themselves' website, SelfHelpCollective.com, "You can't teach anybody anything,
only make them realize the answers
are already inside them." – Galileo Galilei
Back to 2006, then, and ignorant of Galileo's words, but aware of the strange, insightful 'powers' of random answers, I set about being 'creative' & 'playful' with inspirational quotes like these...
"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." – Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy
"Of a certainty the man who can see all creatures in himself, himself in all creatures knows no sorrow."– Eesha Upanishad
"The wisdom of the wise
and the experience of the ages are perpetuated by quotations."
– Benjamin Disraeli
Yes, I set about creating a question and random answer forum, and I called it EgoFatigo.com (and the drum rolls did play...).
And I love problems because they pretty much always contain their own solutions... (In this case, solutions stimulated from a BRAND NEW collection of 366 inspirational quotes – taken from my Conscious Living Quotes book, in Sept. 2018.)
