More than your schooling. Or good deeds. Or fancy stuff…Or…
Or the “right software”
Or the “right” marketing plan.
None of that matters.
Unless you have a positive mindset.
No, I’m not saying shit doesn’t happen. Or you don’t get pissed off.
What I’m saying is that when you focus on THAT stuff, the rest of your business and your life is bound to go down the toilet too. Whatever you want to call it…karma, Law of Attraction, shitty luck, luck of the draw. Whatever.
We all have tough things we learn through…believe me, I’ve had some things that took me down LOWWWWWWWWWWWW. Really. Really. LOWWWWWWWWWWW.
So I’m talking to me, as much as you! (Hope ya don’t mind.)
You hear it every day…the horrible things. The sad things. The things you wish would never happen to you, or to anyone else.
Children hurt. Fires taking out homes. Elderly people get scammed. War … somewhere. Everywhere if you count all the mini “wars” we have in our heads.
The one you love leaves or gets hurt or has a day from hell.
Ever noticed how shitty you feel when you listen to this stuff?
Or when you beat up on yourself for something you said. Or did. Or wished.
Feeling great at the moment? I doubt it.
And when you’re feeling crappy, it’s that old Law of Attraction thing. Crappy stuff just keeps happening.
And it’s a downward spiral…kind of like that old saying “the worse it gets the worse it gets.”
Or “If it can go wrong, it does.”
Sadly, we often let the wonderful things slide by without noticing them. Or commenting on them. Or letting them lift us out of the poo poo pile we’re sitting in.
Ever notice how you feel when you’re laughing?
Or loving? You. Your partner. Your kids. Your dog. Your parakeet.
Or watching a beautiful sunset?
Why then does it seem like all is right with the world?
That you can do anything. Handle anything.
The trees are gorgeous. That stop sign even seems to be wonderful.
Your dog is the cutest thing ever.
Love abounds. Positive feelings abound.
The world is amazing.
Feel the difference?
Take a few seconds. Close your eyes.
Breathe in love.
Ahhhhhhhh. Much better, right?
So why is so hard to stay in this place, eh? It seems like the minute you do, WHAMMO, SMACKO.
Something else comes up to say “ha ha, you just THINK you’re stay with that Attitude of Gratitude. I don’t think so!”
One of my first, and favorite books about mindset and Law of Attraction stuff is “Excuse Me Your Life Is Waiting” by Lynn Grabhorn. I just re-read it and realized how many of the Negative Nelly crap I was allowing to run my life. I love it because she writes like I talk and write. Some straight up stuff combined with deeply loving stuff (that’s actually where the “MamaRed” comes from!).
Knowing a friend was hurting deeply, I decided to create a video version of it to share with him…and you.
May it remind you of how amazing you are. How you belong here and how much each of us has to bring to each other.
There is also a beautifully illustrated version in a downloadable version of this heart-warming poem … just add your email address below and it’s yours!
