Good Morning my friends,
This week’s focus is confidence in ourselves. No matter what happens in our lives, the important thing to remember is to tell yourself daily, “I MATTER” and truly believe in yourself.
“Did you ever see an unhappy horse? Did you ever see a bird that had the blues? One reason why birds and horses are not unhappy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses.” (Dale Carnegie)
Our gut is sticking out. Are we wearing the right clothes? The car looks pretty battered. Is it time to get a new one? We said a witty thing at work. Did our coworkers notice? Some days we act as if we’re on stage, performing for an audience. Even when we think we’re doing well, we can’t be happy until we know what our audience thinks of our performance. The problem is, we can never know for sure before-or even after the fact-what other people are really thinking.
NOTE TO SELF:
What others think of me matters, but it shouldn’t matter as much as what I think of myself. (Linda Picone)
Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts. (Buddha)
Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are. (Malcom S. Forbes)
Do you really want to be happy? You can begin by being appreciative of who you are and what you’ve got. (Benjamin Hoff)
So this week put a note on your desk as a daily reminder that you are important and what you say, do, and think matters.
Wishing everyone a great week
