Tips to being a positive person   Leave a comment

Realize it’s possible, instead of telling yourself why you can’t do something

become aware of your self talk

squash negative thoughts like a bug

replace them with positive thoughts

love what you have already

be grateful for your life, your gifts and other people

focus on what you have, not what you don’t have

don’t compare yourself to others, but be inspired by them

accept criticism with grace, but ignore the naysayers

see bad things as a blessing in disguise

see failure as a stepping stone to success

surround yourself by those who are positive

complain less, smile more  Imagine that you are already the positive person that you want to become

focus on this habit and you will have a much easier time with any other.


a positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort  -Herm Albright

dooms day   1 comment

I work with a guy who thinks dooms day is coming.
no I don’t mean the end of the world.
I mean our jobs.
He keeps telling me that big changes are coming and we are going to lose our jobs.
He has been telling me and anyone else who will listen, this same thing for a few years now.
Personally I like the guy well enough, but I think he is a bit over the top with it all coming to an end.
I wouldn’t care if my job suddenly became non existent.
I would find another one.
I would miss the great pay and my benefits, but I wouldn’t care if I never cleaned another school again.
But I don’t think it will be the doom and gloom he is talking about either.
