“I was sad that I didn’t have any shoes, until I met a man that had no feet.”
“Smile, it could be worse.”
“Try walking a mile in another man’s shoes.”
Take the positive perspective on life. There is always a lesson to be learned and something positive to be gained. Here are a few things in life that could easily have a positive spin…
If – No parking at the mall
Then – Park far away and walk. It’s great exercise.
If – You get fired.
Then – This is now your opportunity to grow entrepreneurial wings. SN: You hated the job anyway!
If – A close family member dies.
Then – Reconnect with family you may not have spoken to in years. I know you’ve heard this before, “It’s a shame we had to see each other on these terms, but I’m glad to see you. Let’s not wait until something like this happens again before we talk.”
If – You burn yourself on the stove.
Then – It could be your house getting burned!
If – You end up in the hospital for 5 days.
Then – You could have not made it to the hospital… (Be grateful)
And these are just a few examples. Look on the bright side. The world is already filled with negativity, why add to it? Your words and positivity serve a much greater purpose that motivation yourself. You words affect those around you. We feed off of one another. You never know who is listening, watching, or who you are modeling for. Surround yourself with a protective positive aura. That’s another characteristic of an awesome person… being positive (2 Words: Be Awesome). Be grateful, think positive, and be positive.
