Do You Complain, more than you Appreciate?
Before I begin this blog I’d like to wish my sister, Tracie Jiggetts a very happy birthday. She means the world to me and has been one of my best friends since the age of 16. Prior to that I had a very strong dislike for her, but what younger brother always got along with their older sibling? lol…But today she is a gifted artist, a great daughter, a fantastic aunt, an awesome friend, and a spectacular sister and I love her with all my heart.
MOVING ON…MOVING ON…So its Tuesday are you ready for a great day? Have you finished complaining about the weekend going by too fast? Or complaining about your long Monday? Some of us, have a perpetual ‘Case of the Mondays’ Finished complaining about money? life? love? work? Life is full of unfavorable events…(note I did not say bad). But, how you react to them will be an indicator of your outcomes in life.When you think about what you want to be 10 years from now, you may already be fighting a losing battle if your sole focus is negativity. But, there is hope for all of us and it is within our power to change our perspective on life and project a image that defeats the powers of a negative attitude.
What Do You Do When Life Gets Tough?
Character is built not given. How you handle scenarios will indicate your character, but even more importantly how you interpret and react to tough situations is a clear indicator. So who are you? Who are you really? Are you a person who finds comfort in negativity or positivity? Do you find yourself using negative situations for regular daily conversations because you subconsciously feel that’s a better way to relate to people?
We Are Prone in Society to be Attracted to Negative Ideas, Words, and Situations?
Look at the news, look at reality TV, look at some music, look at the tabloids, look at documentaries. We as a people find failure not only more tangible but likeable in a strange subconscious yet normal mind state. Have you ever felt guilty to talk about how great a weekend may have been, or how optimistic you are in life? Have you ever started a conversation at the water cooler at work and for some reason felt that opening with something negative like, “It’s almost Friday” , or “I tired of this place”, or “What are they doing now?” to break the ice?
We project negativity because for some reason it seems normal. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been viewed as different or odd because I work very hard to maintain a positive attitude each day. People don’t need to know about my difficult times or hard days and I’m not willing to share them. But, its considered abnormal versus normal for me to have this attitude. The challenge is for you to dig inside and put a positive spin in life regardless of what may be occurring. You are the captain of your ship, the steward of your day and the champion of your success each day.
WHAT’S THE POINT?
The Challenge is for you to be determined, and relentless to project a positive attitude. Go against the grain, stray from the crowd and become a positive light to those around you. Your day will be much better when you get to enjoy all 7, rather than waiting for Friday Night, and Saturday to enjoy. Imagine that…we have the same 365 days per year to enjoy. Yet some only take advantage of Saturdays and Sundays. That means approximately 104 of those 365 days are viewed in a positive light? That means we as a society spend 70% of year with negative energy and thoughts.
The fact is the sun shines regardless of if you look up, if its covered in clouds or you close your eyes. The sun is still their. So my attitude is if the sun is shining so am I. And you should be the same way too. So go out and enjoy Tuesday, treat it the way you do Friday and declare you will no longer waste 70% of the year on negative energy…instead you will focus on be a shining star to all that come across your path from this day forth.
