Today Is Going To Be A Great Day!

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Results 20344949

If you have been waking up feeling a bit negative lately its really not that easy to see today being a great day!  It takes a shift in mind set and that shift can be a battle if your feeling down for an extended period of time.  Your mind likes to play tricks on you and tell you all the things that can go wrong and all the things that are wrong with you when you are stuck in a negative state of mind.

The shift is tough, but you can turn it around.

1. Find something or a few things to be thankful for...your health, a place to live, your eye sight, etc.

2. Find a few more things to be thankful for. You can also come up with a few easy right at hand things.  The fact you are breathing air is a simple one, but on this step take it further.

3. Thing of something that could go right today.  Good you get a new buyer or seller lead (if your a Realtor)?  Could you get a surprise gift or surprise good news?  Take the time to see it happening.

4. Do your best today.  Just go out and do what you do with a little more effort and energy.  Have fun doing it!

Thank you, Chuck, I always need that reminder. 

I call it my right knee.  I have issues with my left knee, and when I find myself complaining about it, and realize it, I switch to "and my right knee is doing just great!". 

Enough that my friends and family will catch on and ask me how my right knee is doing when I am kvetching about something.  We all laugh and I quit complaining. 

So today I'll have a right knee day, and maybe even write a blog post about it.

I have suggested.

Starting the day out on a positive note and having a bright outlook will always help the day go smoother, no need to start the day with a negative attitude.  Thanks for the post.
