  1. Daniel: Great post. What a great way for me to start my Friday… Thanks for passing these great thoughts along. I really enjoyed reading all 50 of them.

    • Daniel M. Wood says:

      Hey Sibyl.
      Glad I could help.
      These are the kind of posts I will be publishing every Friday.
      I hope they will be a inspiration for you every week.

      Did you have a favorite? :)

  2. Rob says:

    Hey Daniel,
    I love the list. Many good ones and some great ones. I especially like 33. There are many successful folks that would be more than wiling to help. Of course, we must receive what they give. For every one that won’t help, 5 will. It is a way of affirming their success in a tangible way.
    Thanks, and glad I subscribed.
    Live it LOUD!

    • Daniel M. Wood says:

      Hey Rob,

      It took me a long time to learn to live by 33. Asking for help makes you feel stupid sometimes but as the chinese proverb says:

      “One who asks questions is a fool for 5 minutes, one who does not ask questions remains a fool forever.” – Chinese Proverb

  3. Keith Davis says:

    Those are 50 beauties.
    My favourite…. don’t know, keep changing my mind.

    What’s that “Friday list”?
    I’ll check it out.

    BTW – love the photo.

    • Daniel M. Wood says:

      Hey Keith,

      The Friday list is from my new posting schedule. Every Friday I will be publishing a list post.
      It is an important list of lessons that have really helped me.

      Let me know what you think of the posting schedule :)

      • Keith Davis says:

        That is some schedule!
        Looks as though you are publishing every day – including the weekend.
        I thought that you had a full time job.

        One thing that I can say… you have come up with some great inovations.
        Great stuff.

        • Daniel M. Wood says:

          Thanks Keith.
          I have a full time job, but as you can see I do cheat a little.
          Mondays I ask my community a question, which is fun.
          Wednesday I write a part of a series which is just fun.
          Fridays is a long list, not much thinking, just adding some interesting insights that I keep looking at anyway and thinking about.
          Saturdays I am hoping for my community to chip in and discuss.
          Sundays though is tough, writing my life story is hard and takes a lot of time and energy if it is to be done write and honest.

  4. Hey Daniel,
    Awesome list and anything with a 5 in it is my favorite number. It looks like you have a few of these concepts here that I’ll have to read. Thanks for sharing … a lot of it comes down to what we take in and take away as in “Don’t listen to a fat doctor tell you how to be skinny” – very inspiring and thank you for sharing.

    • Daniel M. Wood says:

      Hey Vitaly,

      Great having you here and thanks for commenting.
      I’ll keep the 5 in mind, from now on all lists are 5, 50, 500 ;)

      I think the different phrases mean different things to me than they might mean to others, the important part is how they effect us and that they help us stay motivated and focused.

  5. J.D. Meier says:

    > Your beliefs are learned, they can be unlearned.
    I like that. It reminds me of the Zen story …

    “Like this cup,” Nan-in said, “you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?”

    • Daniel M. Wood says:

      Hey J.D.

      That story is a real classic.
      “If you are to teach, you first need to empty their cup so that you can fill it with what should be there” – is the version I have heard (poorly translated from Swedish).

  6. Jk Allen says:

    Now that’s a serious list Daniel. The one that just jumped out of the screen for me was: “You can do anything!”

    I honestly believe that man. I really do!

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Daniel M. Wood says:

      Hey Jk,

      Thanks for commenting.
      Yeah, that one means a lot to me as well. I have used it as a self-affirmation many times.
