Surround yourself with them…positive people, when you can.
Okay, I can already hear what you’re saying “I can’t pick my family, Debbie,” and you’re right- you can’t. But you can pick your friends.
Now I’m not telling you to abandon your friend in need- we all have times when we just need to “talk it out” and we should be that sympathetic ear. But when all you get is a sea of negativity all the time and it’s starting to affect you- then perhaps you might to cultivate more friendships that are mutually rewarding.
Don’t abandon your friends but instead widen your circle-the more positivity you can expose yourself to the better you will feel and the better able you will be to help your less positive friends find solutions that can help them; after all, everyone wants to be around happy, smiling and positive people because it rubs off. Then everyone feels better.

Take it to the next level- take your dream to the next step. Make that phone call, or that visit. Send that email or get that research started and take notes. Then make it a point to continue on the next day. Before long, taking these steps will become second nature to you and they will flow naturally.
Take yourself to that next level

Have a little fun. Investing in your own well-being is not a waste of time, rather, it is a sound investment in yourself.
Everybody needs a little time away from their daily grind.It helps you see things with fresh eyes. It helps you look at things with a refreshed mind. It helps you discover new things and perhaps a new way of being.
Take a little time to be good to yourself. You count too. Remember that.

What’s playing…in the theater of your mind? What kind of movies?
Are the movies of success, and confidence and of moving forward? Even though there could be setbacks along the way, do your movies show you meeting them and continuing your journey? Do your movies make you happy? Then good for you then you are on the right track and keep screening those movies.
But if those are not the type of movies that are playing in the theater of your mind then perhaps it’s time to change the film.

Are you keeping track…of the things you want to accomplish? Do you keep a journal of what you want and the steps you’ve taken (or need to take) to set your dreams in motion and do you take the time to review what you’ve written daily?
Keeping written records not only keeps you organized but keeps you inspired…you see what you want and see what you’ve done to get there. it gives you motivation to keep moving and reviewing them at night cements them in your dreams.

Boost your confidence- take a small step towards your goal. Even a small step is better than just kind of sitting there waiting to get started. It’s like keeping a car engine on “idle” -A car was meant to move ahead and so are you,
Start small…but start. You’ll see the difference it makes in the way you feel about what you are doing. You’ll start to feel better not only about your project but also about your ability to complete it successfully.
Just try it- try it right now and see what you think.

It only takes a minute…to be kind. it only takes a minute to say something encouraging instead of using words that can hurt and sting. It only takes a minute to help a neighbor struggling with a package- instead of walking by because you are too busy. It only takes a minute to say “I love you”
Today let’s focus on being as kind as we can be. Let’s make a positive difference.

Ya gotta have some…enthusiasm. You have to have a zest for life and an appreciation of all the good things already in your life- if you want to enjoy it.
Sometimes it means being happy over little things- like a sunny day or a warm breeze. And many times it means making a conscious effort to shift the way we we from kind of “blah” to feeling optimistic about the day and all it brings.
Making an effort to be enthusiastic can make the difference between a gray day and a great day!

When you feel shaky and unsure concentrate on something you do well. This will help build your confidence and enable you to go on. Norman Vincent Peale, in his book “Positive Imaging” tells us that if you bake cookies well, then bake them…often, even if you give them away. The satisfaction of doing a task well puts you in a better frame of mind and helps you to be successful at doing other things that you may not be so sure of.
Try it, it works and check out Dr. Peale’s books as well- he is my favorite author.

Are you practicing it…gratitude? Do you make it a point to give thanks for all the good in your life? Do you get up in the morning and as your feet hit the ground say “thank you” for being here- another day on this glorious earth? Or do you get up, throw the covers off and then utter and expletive and literally “curse” the day? You hate your boss, your house, your spouse- and the kids are driving you nuts and it’s only 7am!
Go talk to someone who has no job and is struggling to find one. Or talk to that homeless man living by the dumpsters about how you don’t like your house anymore. Or the elderly gentleman who just lost his wife of sixty years- they went everywhere together. Or the young mother who buried her child- pediatric cancer and only five years old.
After you do that, do you still want to curse the day and be angry with your boss or your spouse? Will you still be angry at your kids that they’re making so much noise?
I don’t think so- do you?
