I was watching TV the other day and Reba MacEntye was giving an interview and she said
"To be successful in life you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone."
I thought that was great. It is simple but it makes a lot of sense.
Without a wishbone you will never have dreams for your future. You need to have dreams (goals) to achieve. Once you achieve your goal make your next one tougher.
You need a backbone to stand up for what you believe in. It will also help you when you fail to pick your self back up and try again.
You need a funny bone to enjoy life. You need to laugh at yourself. Don't take everything so serious. If you make a mistake, fix it and move on.
Too bad there is not a compassionate bone. This would help us get a long with others.
