What a great quote to start the week.
“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.” ~ Groucho Marx
How has this thought benefited you?
For me it gives me an opportunity to make a choice each morning on how I am going to approach the day.
Does positive attitude/thinking really work? Can it really have an impact on your life?
This clip from Brian Tracy gives some great insight into these questions.
What a simple but powerful quote about Positive Attitude and Happiness. Everything truly comes down to choice.
“Happiness, like unhappiness, is a proactive choice.” – Stephen Covey
This is a great quote and an even better lesson. Having a positive attitude makes all the difference.
“There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.” – W. Clement Stone
The name of my blog is Choose your P.A.C.E. P.A.C.E stands for 2 things
- Positive Attitude Changes Everything
- Positive Action Changes Everything
I selected this name because I know that having a positive attitude provides more enjoyment and happiness in my life, and taking positive action on this attitude allows me to continue to grow and progress as a person.
Over the next few weeks I want to share thoughts and lessons on the benefit of having both in our lives. I look forward to your feedback and thoughts as well
“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.” – Dr. Wayne W Dyer
“I have for many years endeavored to make this vital truth clear; and still people marvel when I tell them that I am happy. They imagine that my limitations weigh heavily upon my spirit, and chain me to the rock of despair. Yet, it seems to me, happiness has very little to do with the senses. If we make up our minds that this is a drab and purposeless universe, it will be that, and nothing else. On the other hand, if we believe that the earth is ours, and that the sun and moon hang in the sky for our delight, there will be joy upon the hills and gladness in the fields because the Artist in our souls glorifies creation. Surely, it gives dignity to life to believe that we are born into this world for noble ends, and that we have a higher destiny than can be accomplished within the narrow limits of this physical life.” ~ Helen Keller
I know we all deal with limitations, struggles, and hardships that are very real, but I also feel that our attitude towards these limitations reflect a lot on who we are. Helen Keller is a great example of someone who didn’t let her limitations define who she was.
I am interested to hear your thoughts on this question.
I am going to focus my thoughts around the following question this week. “How does our attitude reflect who we are?”
This is an interesting question that I am looking forward to exploring, and I am excited to see your thoughts and ideas as well.
Here is a great quote to start of the week.
“Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don’t waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.” ~ Og Mandino
