I believe Friday is in serious need of some #POSITIVITY! How is your attitude? Could it use a little adjusting? Do you need a little boost, an extra pep in your step? Today’s homework is to start a journal with 2 words written at the top, and then fill it in until you run out of ink… and then get a pen and keep writing! The magical words are: “I AM…” Simple. Declare unto you what YOU ARE. No negatives. No self-doubt. No sabotaging words. Practice kindness to yourself today. Here are a few words of encouragement from Jim Rohn about “can-do” people. Once you start using the “I AM” in your vocabulary, you BECOME a “can-do” person!
Can-do people are immune to burnout. They love what they do because they’ve learned how to fuel the fire that keeps them moving. The prize is not given to the person who’s the smartest, nor to the person with the advantages in resources and position, but to the person with passion.
Can-do people can adjust to change. They don’t get caught griping about an unexpected curve in the road. They accept transition with an optimistic outlook.
Can-do people are fearless. They go straight to the source of their solution. Their very effort commands attention as they wrestle a problem to the ground with expediency. They don’t wait; they initiate.
Can-do people abstain from complaining. They recognize its futility and guard their minds and mouths against indulging in this time-wasting activity.
Can-do people not only initiate, they finish. They are self-starters with the capacity to close the deal.
