When I deliver a speech, I like to blow up the myth of positive thinking.
“Most people believe Positive Thinking means ‘Everything will always turn our great every time,’ right?” I say.
“Well, that’s not positive thinking -- that’s STUPID thinking because every single day of your life SOMETHING goes wrong.”
When we embrace the inescapable truth that despite our best efforts stuff goes wrong frequently, we free ourselves to deal with what is happening rather than wasting time lamenting over what is NOT happening.
It’s all perspective and you get to choose yours.
Choose well starting today.
