When I was shopping today, I observed that there are many people who walk around not smiling. I’m appreciating the power of our attitudes to enlighten and brighten us or subdue, demoralize, and sabotage us. I’m awestruck by the incredible, life-affirming, prosperity-affirming choice one makes simply by deciding to smile.
Any person who cannot admit when they are wrong is demonstrating a character weakness. In the realm of leadership and power, that weakness can be extremely lethal.
I’m appreciating the importance of celebrating our lives every day. Making every day a special occasion. Making every encounter a celebration of existence, communication, and connection.
The impulsive overreactions to unconscious primal fear thoughts of insecurity and abandonment generate tremendous drama in our lives. By putting the brakes on our stampede of emotions and taking the time to sort them out, we become stabilized and centered, receptive and open, focused and directed, all of which maximize our potential for success, whatever our objectives might be.
