    Beautiful @Ramesh Sood! Sometimes it may take a while, but forgiveness is the greatest revenge, as it releases the power of the inflict-er of pain. Great thoughts for consideration in your post!

    Beautiful buzz @Ramesh Sood and how negative feelings overpower positive ones. Studies have shown that people avoid risk before they seek profit. I enjoyed reading it. I am in fact considering responding in a buzz next week (as I shall not be available as of tomorrow morning for five days).

    I agree to a certain extent @Ramesh Sood that some wounds become teachers and help us to forge forward. Wounds can also teach us how NOT to treat or hurt another which can take strength in some cases. If we choose not to hurt others even if they've hurt us, we've risen above the fray and sleep better at night. We become a light that shines brighter for others to follow. In some cases there are wounds inflicted that can hurt someone emotionally for a lifetime. Thanks for this!

    Nice piece and now I will stop standing on street corners dressed in a giraffe suit waving copies of my book. Apart from the stifling heat inside the suit ( I live in the tropics ) I might just avoid getting arrested by the morality police for solicitation !!!! Thanks @Rodney Fife

    This is a great piece to chew on, thank you for sharing! I think one of the most difficult things can often be figuring out which rules are "the ten commandments" and which rules are the ones made to be broken.

    Also, you should link to Part 1 somewhere in the article! For those of us that are too lazy to scroll :)

    I think you are spot on @Rod Loader . I think @Ken Boddie summed his response up well and I couldn't agree more! I'd add shakers to the equation of makers+breakers= innovators!
    Ken Boddie
    23/05/2016 #1 Ken Boddie
    Good observations, @Rod Loader. I would take this a bit further and suggest the following:
    'Fakers' + 'Takers' = 'Ball-Breakers' 🙈
    These are the myopic majority who love to quote "If it isn't broken don't fix it" and will resist change because it takes them outside their comfort zone and because they just hate change. The dinosaurs belonged to this group. They should largely be ignored. 🤐
    What we need is to combine the other two groups, not just to continue to exist, but to grow and blossom. We need the building skills of the 'Makers' 🔧 and the analytical skills of the 'Breakers' 💻 . Hence:
    'Makers' + 'Breakers' = 'Innovators' 💰
