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