Some people walk around looking as if they have just lost their best friend. These people are communicating to the world that life is, and will continue to be, an unfair experience. Daily existence is a total drag while life offers nothing in return for their “showing up.”
If you know one or more of these types (and I’m betting that you do) let me suggest that trying to improve the future of anyone engaged in an exercise in self-pity is often an exercise in futility.
Don’t think that it is your responsibility to get these people singing happy songs. Your job is to get your thinking straight, in gear and firmly positioned so that you can contribute to those eager to enjoy the ride.
Here’s this weeks phrase that pays:
You can’t change the world…but you can change your world.
Your job is to energize you…while making certain that you don’t get confused for the walking dead. Once you take care of you, your actions will do the rest. People are attracted to those who are alive, energetic, and happy – who have ideas and exciting notions about life – who have kind things to say about others.
So, if you truly want to become the exception, pick a game…any game…and get into the game. Stop being a spectator and become a player. Get your uniform dirty. Put yourself on the line. Know that you are not guaranteed a win. Learn from your loses, but realize the game is not won or lost until you decide to stop playing.
What better time to start showcasing the new and attractive you than this week?
