Do you have more negative days than positive?

When it comes to how you see the world, your view point is either positive or negative. That view can shift at different times; minute to minute, hour to hour, day to day. The important part is that we spend more time on the positive side of the field than the negative.

It is virtually impossible to spend 100% of our time on the positive side, but if we could aim to spend the majority of the time there, our lives will be reflective of that. 

Negative attitudes can stay for a lifetime if we don't work on them. Much like we control our food choices, exercise habits, performance at work, we must place the same emphasis on our POSITIVE-NEGATIVE thought balance.

If we spend too much time on the negative side we will begin to feel it in our day to day moods, physical bodies and performances.

Negative attitudes lead to negative performances, negative choices and negative relationships. The biggest issue with negative is that we often find ourselves alone, wondering why we are unable to enjoy the fruits of life in the realms of career, health, family, and relationships. Negative folks rarely thrive in anything they do.

They often wait for a "thing" or rely on another "person" to lift their moods. This is a recipe for disaster since WE are the only ones in charge of our thought life! In life we have a choice to be a victim or a beacon of hope and change. You make the choice!

When you speak with some of the most dominate athletes in the World, they walk with conviction. They know their outcomes before they happen. I am yet to meet a world-class athlete that does not see themselves Winning before they raise the trophy.

Having spent most of my career working with Derek Jeter, he can be thought of as arrogant when it comes to winning and success, but his mindset is what set his path. His vision of winning is what made it happen. His positive thoughts about winning is what made it happen. The intersection of vision and thoughts with consistent action is what made it happen. Check out the video above on Derek- it is worth it. The guy interviewing him is the "Brandon" that I always mention in my blogs. (now you can put a name with a face).

 

Below are some daily tips to help keep the mind healthy, focused, even keeled, consistent and comfortable:

1.Get at least 8 hours of sleep each night. A deprived mind and body does not allow for cellular restoration and recovery, leading often times to a feeling of "cranky" as you see with most young children who don't get a nap!

2.Read Positive Things! Watch Positive Things! If we spend our waking hours reading and watching things that don't lift, motivate, and encourage us, we will become billboards of those other "things" we are being tought. Stay in reality but make it your reality.

3.Gratitude. Every morning, afternoon, and evening take a quick pause to      realize your surroundings and give thanks. Nothing is guaranteed. When you have a great day take the time to realize it.

4.Affirmations. Chanting is big in other parts of the world outside of the US. It is also seen and often associated with Tribes. Chants are affirmations. Don't be affraid to chant- even if its in your own car or bedroom. Some chants that can help; I CAN; I WILL

5.Accept, Don't Resist. There are those days, that no matter what we do, we just can't get going physically and mentally. We all have them! So- the best thing to do is accept those days. Don't resist. Don't make decisions on these days. Wait until your "chemistry, mind and body" are realigned and then attack. But on these days, those should be called OFF-DAYS.

Take action. NOW!
