Are you a positively powered person?
I saw a billboard advertisement for an electrical company as I was driving to work this morning, and it read, “Are you positively powered?” It made me think of how we are all wired differently.
Change Your Mind, Change Your Life
Although sometimes ‘stressy’, I always aim to be positive. It’s true that if we change the way we think about things, our days will also change. When I focus on being positive, my day turns out positive. But as soon as I start to worry, it’s harder for me to enjoy my day.
Motivational speaker Tony Robbins is a true leader in the revolution of change. He motivates, empowers, and inspires us all to make a life change for the better. His teachings have definitely guided me to shift my perspective on life in the past.
Don’t Make an Excuse, Make a Plan
If you’re like me and are into positive quotes, you may have heard of this one before, ‘Don’t make an excuse, make a plan.’
Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation where life doesn’t go according to plan. We can either make an excuse for why it turned out how it did, or we can make a plan to improve the situation.
I was once in a situation where I had no choice but to make a plan. It was my first day of work, the computers were down due to an electrical storm the night before. I didn’t know how to boot the backup system, and I had clients waiting. But because of my professional responsibility I could not give up and go home. I eventually got the computers working with the help of technical support.
The choices in our personal lives, however, can be a very different story. We have no one to answer to but ourselves. It is therefore easy to shirk our responsibility for improvement, and to make an excuse for how our day, and in essence, our life, turns out.
Have you ever felt this way about something that’s happened in your life? I know I have.
The way I look at it is:
If I want to be treated with respect, I have to practice self-respect. And for me, that involves 3 things:
- Being positively powered in order to enjoy the good times in my day. This in turn makes me feel better about myself.
- Taking charge of my decisions, and rather than making an excuse for how my day turns out, work to create a positive solution. This boosts my self-esteem and gives me confidence.
- Worrying less, because worry doesn’t stop bad things from happening, all it does is ruins my day! This point is by far the hardest for me, but it’s a work in progress.
The take home message from today’s post is to aim to be positively powered; to have positive thoughts and positive actions. As it is this mentality that creates a confident and happy aura, which, in turn, resonates self-respect and an infectious vibe among others.
