Larry Winget

In the movies you hear the line "You complete me." Similar lines have become popular in many
movies where the audience swoons when they are said. It has become popular to need
someone to the point that only her presence makes us whole. That is just sad and pitiful. No
one completes you. In fact, my plan is to write a relationship book called, "You Do NOT
Complete Me." Nothing outside of yourself completes you.

matter. And I know people who are excellent at what they do. But they don't work hard

day.

Stop telling your kids they're special. Really! They're special to you because they're yours. I
mean all they had to do is be born to be special to you. Really! They didn't earn that at all.
But the minute they step out your door, they're gonna find out real quickly there's nothing
special about them. You better teach them how to be good, how to be people of honesty
and integrity, how to work hard.
Larry Winget

The only thing that stands between you and what you want, is you and what you don't want
to do.

"So you think people are stupid?" No. I don't think people are stupid. I know people are
stupid... However, I would like to explain what I mean by the word "stupid." If you don't know
any better, then you are ignorant. If you know better and still do it, then you are stupid.
Larry Winget

Do the right thing no matter what.
Larry Winget

I am sick of parents blaming the violence on television as the reason their kid just blew up
the neighbor's dog or for school shootings. Violence on television and in the movies is too
prevalent - I will give you that... But lousy parenting is the real cause of messed up kids.

Most people have a tendency to consider trust as a factor that exists only in marriages. But
trust is a factor in all relationships: parent/child; boss/subordinate; friends/family members;
company/customer... Each of these relationships relies on trust. Once it's broken, the
relationship changes forever. And in each situation, the relationship pays a price.
Larry Winget
