I’m stubborn. Oh, and I don’t listen well either.

I know this because I have made a lifetime of mistakes that could have been avoided, had I only been willing to listen just a little.

I’m not saying do everything other people tell you to do. I am saying to be willing to entertain the though there just might be a hint of truth in someone else’s words that could keep you from unnecessary pain.

Pain being a great teacher is true. But being a fool is just stupid.

Stay True. Stay Ready.
