The Power of a Positive Attitude

I had a conversation with my life coach (read psychoanalyst) yesterday regarding some decisions I needed to make in my professional life. She suggested that I release the negative connotations in my life and only see things in the positive.. ie; “I will find a better paying job.. I will be a better Dad, I will be a better husband”… etc. I find this to be easier said than done. Granted it is not going to happen overnight, it will take time, due diligence and an honest effort to try not to think in the “negative”.. examples you ask.. sure..
“Wow its such a beautiful sunny day today”….
my response would have been.. “yeah but it’s supposed to rain”.. see what I’m getting at?,,, not that rain is a bad thing, but instead of enjoying the moment of the sunny day and basking in it’s glorious rays of life and abundance (that’s an inside joke for my wife).. I almost always chose the negative response.. starting today.. I’m not going to do that, I’m going to get that better paying job, I’m going to be a better Dad, Husband and friend.. I am going to live life in the POSITIVE.. there… I feel better.. oh man looks like rain…
