"Your living is determined not so much by what life brings you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens."

Steps for staying positive in a negative world:


1. Understand that failure is an event, it is not a person. Yesterday ended last night; today is a brand new day, and it's yours. You were born to win, but to be a winner you must plan to win, prepare to win, and then you can expect to win.

2. Become a lifetime student. Learn just one new word every day and in five years you will be able to talk with just about anybody about anything. When your vocabulary improves, your I.Q. goes up 100% of the time.

3. Read something informational or inspirational every day.

4. Start the day and end the day with positive input into your mind. Inspirational messages cause the brain to flood with dopamine and nor epinephrine. Begin and end the day by reading or doing something positive!

Remember: Success is a process, not an event. Invest the time in building a positive attitude. It will pay off well in your skills as well as your career.

Developing a positive attitude adds to our quality of life and spills over onto our meetings with others, by enhancing their lives as well.

Do we drink from a glass half full or half empty? We do have a choice. Gratitude is a wonderful habit to get into. And it's free!

Gratitude brings joy, peace, creativity, love & laughter to my life. Appreciation shown me by others, especially for the little things, gives my heart wings. It helps me to live with love in my heart rather than fear and anger.

Every day is a brand new day. I absolutely agree with you.

There is nothing better than smiling every day, and bring joy to others. I always believe, that one smile may just brighten up someone's day.


Great blog Christine!!!
