Attitude adds up

When I get a new follower I try, time allowing, to get over to their blog and check it out. I often leave a comment or like a post and follow if the content is resonating with me. Recently I got a follow from a blog in a different language. I checked a few post and couldn’t understand as it was a launguage that I had absolutely no knowledge of whatsoever. Just as I was about to leave the page I hit a post that had just one portion in English. It had a good message that I knew I had to share.

I took a quick screenshot of the English part, left a comment that I would like to share it and clicked off to get back to work. The next day as I sat down to write my post I went to my followers so I could give proper credit. The blog was no longer following me. Crap! The screenshot didn’t show the name of the blog and I had no way to find out where this came from. So I decided to wait and see if this follower came back, or if I could somehow trace back to give credit. Nothing.

So to everyone out in wordpressland… One of you inspired me and I thank you for it. I am rewriting the inspiration in my own text but it was one of you who gave me the insight and the meat of this post:

It seems that numerical forces and our English alphabet have conspired to send us an important message. If one were to give a numerical value to each letter of the alphabet in order from 1 to 26 the truth about 3 words adds up, giving us confirmation of the true value of these words.



K N O W L E D G E is powerful and will get you far.            11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5=96%

H A R D W O R K is even more powerful and will take you further. 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11=98%

A T T I T U D E is the sure fired way to get there and anywhere you want to go. 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5=100%

  1. Clever!
    About the follower who disappeared: yes, that happens. I feel badly when someone drops out like that. I want to know ‘why’ of course.

  2. My friend, I’d like to give you a ‘freebie’ I use all the time: I have been using this free translator for a while now and it actually works better than the paid subscription I had years ago. And it works with the most common languages you will probably encounter. Just paste text in the one box and it will detect the language and translate it for you. You can reply back in English and translate it into their language. There is even a ‘coach’ running innocuously at the bottom of the screen to make sure it is saying what you want it to. Try it, I think you’ll like it.
