Motivational Monday - Turning Disorder into Order

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker's recent post about creating a sense of calm reminded me of this quote by James Pierce. Her post gave me even more affirmation that positive minds bring about that calmness. I’m of the ‘mind-over-matter’ mindset and as I’ve shared many times in my posts, attitude is everything.

 

One of my favorite oncology patients that I’ve shared here had the mind-over-matter mindset and was truly an inspiration to those around her. I adored that woman and think that she did as much for me as I did for her as her nurse. Keeping calm and turning disorder into order works! If you tend to lean to the glass-half-empty mindset, I challenge you to try injecting some positive and see how it feels to leave the disorder behind.

 

Make order out of disorder

 

 

If you are a newcomer to turning negatives to positives and don’t know where to begin, try meditation. I’ve actually had this mind-over-matter conversation with Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist before. She shared some resources for me to share with a dear friend who was going through a very rough time with cancer. Meditation truly turned her world around.

 

One tip for meditation - it is very important to occasionally practice meditating in imperfect conditions - it’s truly training for real life. Just as there aren’t always perfect conditions to meditate, life isn’t always perfect. Life constantly disrupts our plans; be prepared to own those plans.

Positive mindsets are achievable, but we must work at keeping them.

Hi Debe- love the photo as well as the quote. We have the power to choose what will bother us. If we decide that disorder will not ruin our day, then it won't.

Think POSITIVE, and lose the attitude. It's so much healthier for you and eeryone around you!

Hi James Dray! I stand by my mind-over-matter sentiment - if you don't allow the negative in, half of the war is won!

Same here, Brian England! It's so easy to watch the difference in outcomes with those who operate with that glass-half-full mentality over the others.

It is not always easy but, we do have that opportunity, Michael Jacobs. I know sometimes in life, it's someone looking in who provides that push for order.

And, yes,Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist is THAT magical...with a cherry on top!

I agree, Grant Schneider - we all have so much to be thankful for. And, I'm like you, I prefer to focus on the positive so I can more readily share my gratitude.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I read your quote yesterday at a stop light as a plane taking off right in front of me, Sharon Lee! I couldn't wait to share that moment with you and am just now getting to it! But, how crazy is that?!!

You're so right, Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist. While I do practice that in my personal life, when I've been 'wronged' by someone in business, I will say that the negativity surfaces when I am reminded of it. I suppose forgiving but, not forgetting is how I would put that! Anyway, that's about the only time you'll catch me being negative!

We've certainly had ample opportunity to practice turning disorder into order in 2020. I think we are now better practitioners of meditation than ever before in our lives.

We do have more time, Laura Cerrano - and if anyone had any doubt that there was something positive that came of all of this craziness, it's that!

Oh, for sure - it's not always easy, Chris Ann! I think we make it more difficult on ourselves when we let ourselves traverse that rabbit hole. It's so much tougher to come back than to never go...or to go to far!!

Hi Kathy Streib! We are totally on the same page! I really can't imagine living life at the other extreme but, some do. I wish there was a way to just drop positivity into their brains sometimes!

And, thank you about the photo! We are so enjoying living here and even during the day, the sky is breathtaking. This location would be a nature photographer's dream!

Good morning Debe Maxwell, CRS ,

What an inspiring post! You are right life constantly disrupts our plans and life is not perfect. With a positive attitude anything can be conquered or at least tamed to manageable!

Hi Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR! Some days I pray for 'taming;' other days, the positivity absolutely cures all! Regardless, there's a definite improvement with positivity - always!

Thank you so much, Kathy Streib! For some reason, I just got your notification of a comment and found Dorie's too - how strange is that?
