Note: Be All That You Can Be

Now that the Army has dropped it as a recruitment slogan, I say we seize it and make it our own.

What a great concept.  Don’t settle.  Don’t surrender.  Keep chipping away at your goals, your dreams and you schemes.

You may not be able to be president, you may not be able to be a best-selling novelist, you may not be able to have any more success with your get-rich-quick schemes than Ralph Kramden ever did, but you CAN be all that YOU can be, whatever that may be.  You may be a fantastic cook, a great parent and a responsible citizen.  You may be a juggler and a math whiz who can add, subtract, multiple and divide in your head.  But don’t settle, don’t let anything, the internet included, define you.  And don’t Google yourself unless you are prepared to bleed.

Be ALL that you can be.  Nothing else is good enough.

    I found myself using that line ” be all that you can be” with my daughter last night. Distraught and frustrated at the state of her fellow peers’ health and lack of empathy.
    Alway’s the rescuer in her trying to help out others who don’t know that they are not well and not evolving into good people wrapped up in the chase for the next shiny thing.
    I used that line to help her to reflect on her own behaviour and didn’t put the responsibility on her to rescue but to just be herself.
    Thanks Vinton for putting those words out there for me to find. I have read many of your books and have just finished the trilogy of your “Healing” books.
    I also went out to get a new kitchen table and chairs as I knew by what you wrote that I would be spending a lot of time there with my cases.
    Thanks again

      Thanks for the kind words, Susi. Glad you liked the trilogy. And it’s nice to picture you at your kitchen table, with notebook, Materia Medica and Repertory and a good cup of tea surrounding you as you work.
