“The talent for being happy is appreciating and liking what you have, instead of what you don’t have.” – Woody Allen
Do you hate your life? Better yet hate is a strong word. Are you dissatisfied with your life? Take a 5 second break and write down 5 things you wish you had, or were different about your life.
When you are done, turn the paper over and write down 5 things that you have in life that you do like…now ask yourself which side of the paper you rather focus upon. Which side makes you smile? Which side excites you?
FIRST OF ALL YOU MUST REALIZE THAT NO MATTER WHAT LIFE WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER BE PERFECT. BUT PERCEPTION IS REALITY, THEREFORE IF YOU FOCUS YOUR ENERGY ON POSITIVE THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS. THE NEGATIVITY WILL CEASE TO EXIST IN YOUR MIND, THEREFORE CREATING A PERFECT UTOPIA. IT BEGINS AND ENDS WITH YOU.
FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE AND DESTROY NEGATIVE THOUGHTS AT THEIR ROOT…YOUR MIND!
It is my hope is that you prefer to focus on the positives in life. It will NEVER, EVER be enough. No matter how much money you make you will want more, no matter how great your career may be you will feel unfulfilled in some way, no matter how great your home is you will always want more, no matter how great your friends are you will seek more, no matter how great your significant other may be you will seek more. Those are all normal human functions…where the prosperous go and the failures go from that point is what is most important.
The WEAK, the defeated, the failures will dwell on what they do not have, have not accomplished, or can’t seem to do. They will walk around with an attitude that implies the world is against them. They will place so much energy in the negative mind-state that they will subconsciously sabotage themselves to add further validity to how horrible it is to be them. They will work relentlessly to avoid opportunities and advantages with the fear that if things do get better they will have nothing left to focus upon. THIS IS A LOSER MENTALITY.
The STRONG are conscious, and intelligent enough to realize what they do not have. That’s an pivotal point, they are no ignorant to the facts or reality. But instead of wasting their keen mind, and principles in the power of persuasion and positive thoughts on negative energy they focus it on what they do have. Instead of subconsciously sabotaging themselves, they set themselves up for success. They are their own BIGGEST fan and have a relentless pursuit to bring more positive things into their lives. THESE ARE THE WINNERS. This is what separates the winners from the losers. We all have an even playing field 24 hours per day to make her dreams our reality.
The question is are you focused on WHAT YOU DON’T HAVE, WON’T HAVE, AND CAN’T HAVE?
OR ARE YOU FOCUSED ON WHAT YOU DO HAVE, WILL HAVE, AND CAN HAVE?
The choice is up to you, Be GREAT at what you do today…the choice is YOURS!
