This positive blog is one of the tools I’m using to reach my goal of having an optimistic nature (the other tools include yoga and meditation). However, I realised that, while I had written a list of characteristics I considered positive, I had not formally defined my goal and how I would measure it.
Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
If you want an interesting and meaningful life, challenge yourself! I strongly agree with this Joshua J. Marine quote. Looking forward to my next challenge…
An excellent book
I have just read an excellent book which shifted my success paradigm: The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea. The book, by Bob Burg and John David Mann, focuses on the importance of giving. The Go-Giver is a concise book but the words it contains are powerful and I highly recommend it.
Success is controlling how you spend your time
Let’s spend our time working towards our goals and making the most of life.
So much happiness!
Congratulations Americans! There is so much happiness on my Facebook feed today 🙂
Community is very important and a positive and sharing local community makes a big difference. I’m very happy to write that my relationship with some of my immediate community has strengthened recently. Yes!
What an inspiration!
Back in February I met a friend for a cup of tea. During our conversation I introduced her to the 4 Hour Work Week, the concept of simplifying life and automating and outsourcing work in order to maximise the time spent living one’s dreams. I suggested to my friend that she buy the 4 Hour Work Week book by Tim Ferriss.
My friend loved the concepts in the book, including, hiring a virtual assistant.
Today I met my friend again to find out, only four months later, that she has quit her job and is now successfully living the 4 hour work week!
What an inspiration!
An abundance mentality
With an abundance mentality, the world holds an abundance of opportunities. These opportunities are there to be made and taken. Even times of disappointment often lead to the greatest opportunities.
Let’s seek and take those opportunities to lead a better, more positive and successful life!
It’s a wonderful sunny day
After 3 or 4 days of appreciated rain, today’s a lovely sunny day. The birds are singing and the sky is blue. Let’s make the most of today!
I have read many people’s inspirational accounts of their interactions with the late Robin Williams. From insisting venues employ homeless people to silently supporting charities to mixing with fans, every account was full of praise. He was a truly wonderful and generous man.
