Daily Motivator 09/11/11 - Double down

Sunday, September 11, 2011

When life hands you a disappointment, donít lower your expectations. Raise those expectations.

If youíre having trouble reaching your goals, donít give up on those goals. Make them even more ambitious and even more meaningful.

Yes, life can be filled with inconvenience, frustration, and disappointment. The people you deal with can be rude, incompetent, arrogant and downright abusive.

But you donít have to let any of it get to you. Just as easily as you can choose to be angry, you can choose to be positive, productive, purposeful and enthusiastic.

When the negativity gets thick, respond with positive enthusiasm. For that is precisely when it can have the most powerful effect.

When being positive is not working out, double down on your positivity. Base your response not on how life has been, but on how you would like it to be.
