CHEER UP...Look at ME...Keep your Chin Up...Tomorrow will be a better day...You've got this!!
Have you been on the receiving end of those anytime in the recent past? Should you have been?
Surprise!!! You are not alone!!
And did you...for even a moment... think...the weight of it all is such a burden and I should just ...
STOP Throw those thoughts
in the trash...forever!!
I have Broad Shoulders!
When I was a young man, my hometown Men's Store Owner at Bryan Jensen Clothing in St Paul, NE. grabbed both my shoulders and said..."Mike you have very broad shoulders...wider than most guys your age!"
I took it as a compliment...at the time I had a narrow waist.
Ed Nevrivy has been gone for the better part of 2 decades but his clothing store lives on. I have never forgotten that comment. He was always a positive guy and had good things to say about others and about life!
My waist is not so narrow now...but the broad shoulders...they are still here...
and some days I feel like I am carrying the weight of the world on them. DO You ever feel that way?
Especially in 2020 with all the craziness going on and disrupted routines...it is hard sometimes to stay positive for some folks.
Have you banged your head on the wall recently or just facepalmed yourself or screamed out loud?
Well guess what...there is a solution in my opinion and that is to BE Positive!!
When I am positive the weight of the world is like half of what it is if I think in a negative way about the same thing.
I like being positive...even in a bad situation...because it makes life easier for me. I laugh...a lot...at myself and at a lot of things. I could get mad about some of them...and I do sometimes...but that will not cure the problem...so I try and laugh and look at it as a way to spread positivity.
When you or I are out in public...on the phone...driving or riding in a vehicle...walking down the street...working with a client...spending time with a family member or friend...DO you stay positive or do you let the negativity ruin your time?
I am here to tell you that if you are negative...and who you are with is negative...unlike with a math problem... 2 negatives make a bigger negative...not a Positive!
I have the following on a Power Point slide in my company presentation...(it looks better in the presentation but reads the same!)
You can do this now if you want...try it. Try it for a couple of minutes... I do it often and am hitting the send button and then doing it...
Life Can Get Hectic
When Things Seem a Little Blurry or a Bit Foggy…
Stop For a Few Minutes and Collect your Thoughts.
Relax and Close Your Eyes. Let the Negatives Go. Let the Positives Back into Your Thoughts.
Think of Those You Love and ThoseWho Love You.
Find a Comfortable Position and Relax Your Muscles and Just Breath.
Deep Breaths…Long Breaths. Just Breath...
Feel Your Chest Rise and Fall. Inhale the positive and exhale the negative.
Know That You Are an Incredible Person That Cares and Loves Immensely and Deeply.
You Make a Positive Difference in Those Around You.
When You Open Your Eyes You Will See So Much Clearer.
The Day Will Get Easier and Full of Brighter Light!
Carry That Positive Light With You Throughout Your Daily Journey!
