Shut Up, Move On (SUMO)

I recently read an article about Paul McGee a.k.a the "SumoGuy" in a professional association's journal and I personally found it very enriching and therefore thought I could share it with the ROW (Rest of the World). As Paul puts it "SUMO is a phrase to say to ourselves (and sometimes others!) when we are acting or thinking in a way that is hindering our ability to succeed.....SUMO is meant to be challenging, thought-provoking and memorable message". The SumoGuy has identified SIX PRINCIPLES designed to help you create and enjoy a brilliant life:
1) Change your T-Shirt - Take responsibility for your own life.
2) Develop fruity thinking - Take charge of your thinking. When you change your thinking, you ultimately change your results.
3) Hippo time is OK - Understand how setbacks affect you and how to recover from them.
4) Remember the beachball - Increase your understanding and awareness of other people's world.
5) Learn Latin - Change comes through ACTION and not INTENTION.
6) Ditch Doris Day - Create your own future rather than leave it to chance.
