A positive mind finds a way it can be done, a negative mind looks for all the ways it can’t be done.
Napoleon Hill

Dear Benchmark Girl,

So this happened at dinner the other night. Two friends of mine were ribbing one another — one telling the other that she is “too smiley” and “too happy” … they were good natured about it, but I was a bit dismayed at the conversation.
I’m not sure this is ACTUALLY a thing… being “too happy.”

This girl is genuinely just a fun, happy, person. She loves to laugh and smile and enjoy life.
This doesn’t mean that she doesn’t get down once in awhile. Or have a bad day here or there.

But IN GENERAL…

  • she CHOOSES to be a positive person.
  • she CHOOSES to look on the bright side.
  • she CHOOSES to problem solve instead of lament.
  • she CHOOSES to make the best of whatever her circumstance.

… and I LOVE THIS ABOUT HER!
… and this will BENEFIT her SO MUCH in the future….(when networking, advancing in her career, meeting new people…)
… and she is WELL-LIKED because of this… by old friends, new acquaintances, people both younger and
older than her.

I’m not suggesting you HAVE to be like my friend.

But I AM SUGGESTING
that if life is NOT going your way…
and you are upset or dismayed or frustrated with that …
you COULD…
at LEAST…
TRY … to CHOOSE a positive mindset for awhile…

Just to see if it makes a difference.
At the end of the day though — it is YOUR CHOICE.
I hope you CHOOSE wisely…
as you reap what you sow.
