Some of my favorite movie endings were:
Themela & Louise
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
All of these main characters had a choice in their next move. Some relied on religion or luck, and some made a very conscious decision, never the less they made a choice. We all have choices in our lives too. Where are you going with your choices?
Everyone has potential.
No one has reached it yet.
How you make your choices is the key to your success. When something happens to you, you can look at it as very negative or you can look at it as a wonderful opportunity. As I mentioned once before, this is not Pollyanna thinking but a new way of looking and acting on things in a positive way. After all- where has the negative way of thinking gotten you so far? The key is to thoughtfully choose the meaning you attribute to everything that happens in your life, and then to make a choice about where you want to go from here. Remember also that there is no “right” or “wrong”,” good” or “bad ” It is only “wise “or “unwise.”
A new way to look at things would be to change your language. From “I have to——–” to ” I get to —-” The “have to” sounds more like complaining- and once again, where does that get you? Change your language and you change your whole attitude. Problems are just “opportunities”. Yea, I know-“hokey Pollyanna” How do you think TRUMP, GATES, JOBS, and Warren Buffet think and talk? Upgrade your thinking, think like important people think. When you do, your actions will be better and this produces success. Always do more then you get paid for, to make an investment in your future. Remember successful people do the things that unsuccessful people are unwilling to do.
If you change your thinking, everything else will change. (Your choice)
The key to feeling optimistic, enjoying your life and fulfilling your vision for a delightful life is to only keep one thought in your mind at a time. So what do you think that thought should be? If you keep upbeat positive thoughts, they will crowd out any negative thoughts and you will feel better. When you feel better, more positive thought will come in. You can do this!
Test this out for yourself. Take just a morning and deliberately think of all good things going on in your life (yes there are good things happening- just look) Later- check yourself- you’ll say “Wow – I feel great- l should think this way all the time”. You may say this sure is hokey- but “if you keep on doing what you been doing you will keep on getting what you got” Questions has been asked how do I do something like that? Think of something the kids did (something good), think of a great memory, think of the blessing you DO have. Remember there’s always something to be grateful for. It is a matter of choosing to see it. Before you know it- you will be feeling great. What you say to yourself determines practically everything you do. By the way, words can even change your blood pressure, heartbeat and breathing. We can change the future through the use of our imagination.
Did you know you can choose to be happy right now? It is a choice and one of the oldest techniques known is simply to choose to smile. It is ALWAYS your choice to be in a good mood or bad mood. Who wants to be around someone in a bad mood? Would you like to be around you?
You can choose your beliefs too. Believe in your company, believe in your products, believe in your future but most importantly believe in yourself.
In the words of Steve Jobs “Stay hungry, Stay foolish” Pursue your dreams, make your choices and move on. If you are not enjoying yourself, you are wasting your time. You can do this!
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
Herm Albright (1876-1944)
Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.
Happiness is not by chance, but by choice
Go have your best month ever
Choose to have fun
