“To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone, and a funnybone.” Reba Mcentire
I couldn’t agree more with Reba in this quote. To be well rounded you have to be flexible. You have to have the ability to laugh at yourself when you mess up and stand up for yourself when you are treated unjustly.
I think the idea of having a wishbone is one most people overlook. Most people are too busy trying to laugh it off and defend themselves that they forget to dream. They forget to wish for things, no matter how unrealistic it may be.
Being able to keep life light and your mind open to new and exciting ideas helps to ease the use of the backbone. While you definitely need all three things to succeed, knowing when to use them is equally as important. Don’t let life run you, you get to run this beautiful crazy life, no one else. Remember these 3 steps to success and never forget to keep wishing, backing and laughing.
