Motivational Monday - Conquering Life's Setbacks, One Tire at a Time

If you follow my motivational posts each Monday, you probably think I'm hung up on attitude and not allowing set-backs or diagnoses, etc. to keep you from your ultimate goal. Well, I try to focus each week on one person in my life who needs a little motivation - and as it happens, attitude has a lot to do with much of what we deal with in life!

Today we needed a little hospital room humor after the doctor's visit and how appropriate is this?...

 

Conquering life's setbacks, one tire at a time

 

We often get hung up on one little negative and it can truly set us back exponentially, if we allow it to do so. One negative story in the newspaper doesn't mean that all of the news is negative - read it and move on to the positive stories! Life is much the same when our goals are being impacted by that one little nagging negative.

 

Yes, we need to know what that one negative is (oftentimes, simply not to repeat history) but, dwelling on it has a huge impact on our overall well-being, our overall attitude and ultimately, the achievement of our goals.

 

Happy Monday - Stay Motivated!

You're so right - it IS a choice, Michael Jacobs. It would be nice if everyone honed in on the positives, for sure!

Hi James Dray! Most days it is so much easier on us to just grin and move on - you're so right!

Today was even better, Will Hamm! He was actually making us (his sister and me) laugh this morning as we were video-conferencing with him! ❤️ 💕

Ouch! I absolutely hate getting flats and it seems that we get them so much more often these day - especially in the new construction communities, Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland

Aren't you sweet, Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Real Estate! I'm so happy to see that you've added a new post. I totally understand how we get so busy and wrapped up in the moment, we forget to post. I typically wind up posting most of my blogs for the week on Sundays - the only day that I take off...most of the time!

Thank you so much for your sweet comment, Christine O'Shea! I really do try to stay positive. Life is just too short not to, right?!

I remember learning about having an attitude of gratitude years ago, Nick. I thought, "Oh, that'll be super easy - I'm always grateful..." As positive as I am, it took some thinking some days to truly focus on that mindset. Now, it's second nature but, boy, who knew it could be challenging?!

We live such fast-paced lives that we forget to take time to focus on our gratutities. And, boy, you're SO right, Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543, some days, it's a little too overwhelming but, we DO push through!

Oh, I am so sorry, Tammy Lankford, I had no idea you were going through that. You know you can always pick up the phone and call me. I do know that there are times like that - you really just want to get through it on your own! Just know - call if you need me! ❤️

Everything we do after a negative event can be changed. I just don't think that everyone realizes that sometimes it's best just to step back and think rationally - realistically! I remember my Dad's lesson - more often than I care to mention - "If it's not going to matter in 5 years, put it out of your mind!

So far, that has served me quite well in life, Jeff Dowler, CRS!

Oh thank you, George Souto! You know, most of the time it takes me longer to create the graphic than to write the post! LOL So, it means a lot that you noticed!

LOL I know - we need to resume! Ray started his Denver stint and it's exhausting going back and forth. I am living by my calandar but, not sticking to our calls and I feel horrible. Hopefully someone will take the baton and allow me to be a participant for a few months...or permanently! 

Hugs, Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Real Estate!

Well, thank you, Kris Collis! It was fitting for a situation someone near and dear to me is going through...and he's notorious for honing in on the negative...no matter how small! 😝

Debe Maxwell, CRS , it is so true that there is so much life and power in the attitude.  A setback should not make you want to slash the three good tires...'  nor want you to take a huge paint brush and make a big 'X' on your newly painted large canvas.  Setbacks, obstacles, challenges are all part of the lesson we are learning.  Great post, Debe!

A little late to this party but a day ahead of Monday!  So agree.  If one person or article sets you back, get back up and focus on the next goal, the next positive thing.  You of all people do a great job at subscribing to this advice!  Happy Monday a day early!

You're never too late to my party, Jan Green! And, indeed I do - I am guilty of being the eternal optimist - always! 

Have a great week ahead!
