Be Positive or Be Quiet


Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words.  Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior.  Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits.  Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values.  Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.

– Mahatma Gandhi

Dear Jack ~ Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive about what could go right.  We are what we think about.  It’s ever-so-easy to catch ourselves in mental conversations throughout the day.  The key, is they need to be constructive, deliberate, and positive tones.  Our attitude towards life determines life’s attitude towards us.

Our thoughts lead to actions and our actions lead to progress.  Eternal, battle hardened progress.  They say the average person has about 30,000 internal conversations per day.  Let’s make it positive and uplifting dialogue.  Below are some simple strategies for staying the course:

  1. Wait to worry – count to 10.
  2. Keep an attitude of gratitude – write it down.
  3. Your health is your wealth – no replacement for health and wellness.
  4. Enjoy the serious benefits of a belly laugh – laugh, out loud.
  5. Joy boomerangs – what comes around goes around.
  6. Losing the fight?  Write. – see this blog.
  7. Keep the faith, baby – never, ever give in.
  8. Lean to say “no” graciously – no, means yes.
  9. Understand the power of discipline – discipline = destiny.

We must rid ourselves of the I can’t do it, it’s too hard, and it’s not the right time mentality.  Instead, let’s replace it with I can do all things, this too shall pass and a now or never spirit.  This is no doubt easier said than done.  But practice does make perfect and with effort and vigor we can conquer any and all negative self talk.  Let’s shift from a victim to victor mindset and watch doors open that were previously slam shut, our horizon will open up and you’ll go from the back to the front with one touch of favor.

Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.  And never forget that a negative mind will never give you a positive life.
