“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”
-Henry Ford


Don’t Give It a Second Thought!

Some days it just seems like everything is going wrong.  Like tripping up the stairs, it has a cascading effect.  You miss a step and trip, then you keep tripping.  You lose the smooth rhythm you usually have.  The more you trip, the madder you get, it’s just stairs, right?  Been doing this my whole life, what’s the problem now??  And the funny thing is, the more you try not to trip, you trip!  When you finally get out of your head, well that’s when you seem to be able to resume your normal stair climbing ability.

So, some days it does just seems like everything is going wrong.  But maybe it’s like the stair thing.  If we think about it too much, focus on what’s going wrong, we just keep tripping. Or stubbing our toe.  Or experiencing blocks at every turn. Then we ruminate on why everything is going wrong today and compounding it.  We are out of alignment.

Does the airplane complain about taking off into the wind?  Of course not, it’s a f*$%ing plane😉!  Maybe better put as, does the pilot complain about taking off into the wind?  Of course not, because he knows the plane is fully capable of this and this is how it’s done.  He doesn’t give it a second thought.

Let me repeat that, he doesn’t give it a second thought.  He just plows ahead with the assumption that everything will work out.

You Can Do It!

The same thing happens to me every time I sit down to write these posts.  I stare at the graphic, read the quote over and over and lament why did I start this 😂?  But then I just get out of my head and start writing the first thing that pops into my mind.  It can always be changed, right?  But that starts the snowball and then somehow, I end up writing a post I am pretty happy with.  It never ceases to amaze, me every time!

So, the next time you find yourself tripping up the proverbial stairs, try to get out of your head and have a little faith!  You can do it!

My Thought for the Day…April 5, 2019…Attitude

“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”

-Henry Ford


Attitude

It is really amazing how much mindset and attitude can predict success, regardless of ability.  The grumblers usually remain grumbling and don’t go anywhere.  The one’s with positive attitudes are the ones who move.

Attitude is a choice.  Even if you’ve received more than your fair share of bad times, it is still up to you what your attitude will be when you get up, when you go out into the world.

One way I have found to change my attitude is through gratitude, for the small things, for the big things, for all things really.  Another way is listening or watching uplifting media, podcasts, or music.

And once you are out in the world, surround yourself with the positive people, not the grumblers.  The grumblers will only bring you down.  If that is not possible, plug your ear buds in and listen to something positive!  Feel good or feel crappy, you always have a choice.

Have a great Friday!
