Happy Monday My Friends,
Do you wake up some mornings and think, “OH NO, here I go again, another day, wonder what is going to happen today.” Thinking about the day ahead negatively? But what if you were to wake up each morning and think, “what a great day this is going to be,” instead. That first thought as you begin your day may change the entire outcome. Do you want to approach it in a good frame of mind, or a bad frame of mind? That is entirely up to you as our encouragement today centers on attitude.
“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” (Thomas Jefferson)
“Can’t do it.” “Never could do it.” “Never will be able to do it.” “No one could do it.” ‘We don’t have the right resources.” “We haven’t been trained.” “We don’t have the time.”
We’re full of excuses for why we can’t do something, even before we’ve made one small effort to get it done. Will we succeed? Not with this attitude. But if we take on the challenge with enthusiasm and energy, assuming that we’re going to do just fine, we just might.
NOTE TO SELF:
I may not be able to change the tasks that need to get done, but I can change my approach to them.(Linda Picone)
Be a master of the mind, not mastered by the mind. (Zen Proverb)
What you think you become. What you feel you attract. What you imagine you create. (Buddha)
Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones tend to take care of themselves. (Dale Carnegie)
Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail. (Confucius)
Each of us was born with free will. It is our choice alone, the manner in which we want to handle situations we are faced with every day.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week.
