“Too many times we allow our emotions to dictate decision-making. This is wrong. We should never make decisions based on anger, fear, or excitement. Rather, use the intellect and experience when making assessments. Once we have used our cognitive abilities to come to a logical conclusion, now we should kindle the emotions to fuel the choice that we have made.
Intellect first fueled by passion. This is wisdom.”
“Simply put, If your heart is not in it, then, please, don’t do it!
If you do try to do “it” when your heart is not in “it” then “it” will be a foolish mistake.
Trust me, been there done that and have the experience, the pain, and the hurt.”
“Our intellect confuses things because we are trying to figure everything out. On the counterpart, we get too emotional because of intuition.
What we need to do is find the BALANCE between both. This is wisdom and brilliance at the same time.”
Scott Canipe on Hardships
“It is all about going through the STRUGGLE! If you have not gone though IT, then you can’t relate.
But if have gone through it, then you know. I love it and in a sadistic way I enjoy it, because it fuels me.”
“I just read that 1,494 child homicides occurred in 2008.
I don’t understand how someone can harm, rape, or kill a child. There are some very bad people out there. Unless they are mentally insane, anyone that harms a child should be executed!!!!”
“We as a society,too many times, care too much about what ppl think, who cares what ppl think! These individuals don’t give a *** about you. What matters is you doing you and fulfilling your potential and helping others!
“Building self-esteem is something that we all need to get the most of our potential. This has to do with our internal reference. What we perceive, think, and how we judge ourselves is crucial for this growth. One needs the necessary information to develop this dynamic of our personalities.”
Scott Canipe on Divorce:
“Divorce is like experiencing a death. Sad at times, but can also be very liberating.”
“I like being put in a corner! When pressure is on a person, they either wilt or push throw the pain. To fulfill your potential you got to expand your pain threshold! Just do it!!!!”
“To be yourself, you have to be confident within yourself by accepting who you are as an individual. Recognize your strengths and your weaknesses. Cultivate your strengths and improve your weaknesses.”
Scott Canipe on Death
“It appears that a person’s life is comparable to sparks that go upward in a bonfire. They illuminate the midnight sky for a brief moment and then they are extinguished forever.
There is such a short distance between our hellos and our goodbyes. Such a small time between the baby’s cry and the death rattle in the throat.
It is a painful fact to admit, but life is fleeting and the inevitable will eventually come. We need to do our very best and make the most of our potential while we can.”
“Death is a part of living and there is nothing we can do about it but eventually die.
Hopefully, we have true friends and family and leave a respectable legacy.”
