Authority-Wisdom Snippets -From Peter.

Authority

Feature Photo by Rita Morais Upsplash.com

With my intelligence, I have authority. Yet, it has no power without my wise management.

While I search for self-development and learning, my higher discovery has been how to apply my fertile imaginativeness.

I cannot change my after-life destiny, but I’ve enjoyed many years improving my present life.

For me, it is an immense wealth to be of helpful service to my fellow humans. For me, it is far above fame and fortune.

I understand that authority is this: The authority on (on a particular matter.) And the authority to do (something.)

Like most of us, I was taught authority by my parents, teachers, and the workplace. My father was the head (I date back many years ago) my mother followed. The order at school, was headmaster, teachers, prefects. Work, the MD, department head, and line manager. These were all people who had to manage my life, learning, and productivity.

Not All Authorities are Authorities.

Among some were authorities on various aspects of management, learning, and productivity. Not all those who of my authorities were authorities in specific subject matters.

The Function of Authority

My line manager was an expert on chemicals, as he was a qualified chemical engineer. At the same time, he issued me instructions on what work I was to do. He also appraised my performance. Finally, he coached me on how to refine this performance.

True Authority

My favorite teacher was my English master. Employed to teach me but also with a Ph.D. in English. He was a specialist in all aspects of the English language and an excellent teacher; he had a command of the English language and a respect for his students. This master never demanded respect; it simply came to him.

Proper authority is invested in us, and how wisely and respectfully we use this is our choice.

Burdens-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Burden

Feature Photo by Jon Tyson Upsplash.com.

I used to carry burdens, some out of necessity, others were lies I believed. I found my happiness was achieved by knowing which burdens to keep carrying.

Take chances in your life, I always have. Every now and again they become golden eggs, quite without a goose, oddly enough.

Listening has led to learning for me, whereas just hearing has led to a loss.

How I dealt with issues in my life taught me more than the issues themselves.

Wisdom Snippets From Peter-Live a Full Life

Herd

Feature Photo by Andrea LightfootUpsplash.com

Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You love Life.

I never follow the herd, in spite of a traditional upbringing. Essentially, I am a free-thinker and an up-streamer. Have you ever wondered why you can’t follow the herd? The answer is simple; you are not a sheep, you are a free-thinker.

I am grateful to have discovered prayer and laughter have something common, in my life; they both make me feel happier after.

I trust the words of correction from a true friend, however painful; but words, no matter how sweet, from someone who does not love me are like kisses from an enemy.

Daily learning and accumulating knowledge are of vital importance to me. Yet I understand knowledge without wisdom is like a ship without a rudder.

My Past

I will not allow my past to haunt me. My past is my college of learning. Today I have anxiety for nothing; accepting everything that happens to me with peace. I will not demand that tomorrow gives me what I want; I will be grateful for whatever I receive. Do you know what? I sleep well at night.

Peter’s Quote for The Day I Can Fly

Flying

Feature Photo by MAX LIBERTINE Upsplash.com

If you are learning to fly, you will have an instructor, who tells you what to do. On your first solo flight, you will know what it’s like to actually fly an airplane. The seat next to you is empty and you are alone, with no one to help you fly. Life is like that you know; the best of qualified people can teach us, but it’s nothing like actual experience. Remember this the next time you feel like the sky has just fallen on you. Be kind to yourself, please.

Peter’s Quote of The Day

Photo by Sincerely Media
  1. I love reading. I learn from what I read. One of the more important aspects I learned is; if I don’t apply what I’ve learned, I lose what I’ve learned. In addition, reading replenishes those parts of my being that would otherwise die. That’s not all… I learn from my mistakes too and don’t mind making them for this reason – there is always a bonus in the end. I learn from my afflictions as well and no matter how painful these might be, they will not stop me from learning. Finally, and this is interesting; my most effective times of learning were when I was teaching. Maybe because I was applying what I had learned?
Peter James

I love each new day; the advantage of waking up and finding I’m alive, and the fact that once again, opportunity calls from outside the covers. Its so worthwhile waking and having gratitude for being alive; because one day I will wake up and find I’m dead! On that day I shan’t bother to find out what’s outside the covers – I will know.

I am an Author, Writer, and Blogger.

Whilst the titles might make me sound important, I am not. I love people and have a strong passion to encourage people and help them to love themselves.

Writing and publishing on my blogsite is simply what I do.

What do I write? Over the years I have published, short stories, Inspirational articles, poems, reviews of books, movies, restaurants and more.

Although of late I have focused more on ‘Words of Wisdom’ articles that invite people to challenge themselves as far as their self-development is concerned and these I publish weekly, under the title, “Weekly Words of Wisdom” on my blogsite: http://www.sirpeterjames.com.

Having had an excellent response to the “Weekly Words of Wisdom,” it makes sense to publish a daily, “Peter’s Quote for The Day,” in the hopes that you will, not only read it, but let the words be drawn into your very soul and finally, and most important of all – you will apply them to your life.
