Often times people will say “Man, what a great day!” or “Wow, that was a rough day.” What percentage of those days was a result of something bad happening to them, and what percentage of it was a decision they made when they woke up in the morning.
Life is tough. People are cruel. Things don’t go according to plans. Life isn’t fair…..All true statements. However, what if we decided that today was going to be a good day? What if that was our mission? Could anyone stop us?
I would argue it would be pretty difficult. Sometimes things happen that are going to make for a bad day. That’s a fact. I do think though that you can make a higher percentage of your days positive.
People like to bust out the quote “Life is 10% what you make, and 90% how you take it. What if we decided we were going to have a good day despite our circumstances, the negative co-worker, the memo we received, or the new guidelines that need to be implemented. OR….the inlaws are coming over for Thanksgiving dinner. 🙂
Homework for today (or tomorrow if it is already too late): Be the most positive person you see the entire day. Get plenty of sleep, get up before your alarm and have everything ready to go. Look sharp. Set your mind to conquer….let me know how it turns out.
