I don't know if you guys have ever noticed this or not, but I tend to be a bit of a downer sometimes and focus on the negatives rather than the positives. It's not like I set out to do so, and yet it happens more often than I'd care to admit. That is until now..
I recently attended a local networking breakfast hosted for small business owners, and our guest speaker for the morning was a semi-famous artist who has managed to make a decent living working for himself from his office at home. Rather than selling us the usual story about constant hard work being the key to success, he instead shared that his secret to personal and business growth was as simple as adopting a full-time positive attitude.
You're probably thinking "yeah right! positivity achieves nothing without hard work", and you're absolutely right. However, I'm learning that if you want to be successful in all aspects of your life you really can't have one without the other.
Our guest speaker was surprisingly a huge advocate for the law of attraction, and he spoke about how each and every morning he wakes up with the attitude that good things are going to happen. He told us countless stories that backed his belief that a positive attitude attracts positive circumstances - so much so that I was completely inspired to adopt this belief myself.
I now believe that every day has the potential to bring me happiness. That every day is a chance to learn, to grow, and to find peace among the uncertainty.
If I wake up believing that good things are going to happen today, then good things will happen. I just need to find the positives in the every day. :)
