Sometimes with all the negativity in the world, it can be difficult for us to stay positive, but I have found it helps to have a very simple resolve: start each day with YES! Our minds are powerful tools though and sometimes just thinking something gives us a very good boost. Having a yes kind of attitude can go a long way!
Now I won't make believe that there are not any problems in the world. Certainly there are many. Can we solve every single one of them? Probably not today. We can make a start though. We can do some good. Of course changing the world means believing in yourself and your ability and trusting and believing in other people. It's a tall order I know.
Think about the opposite though for a moment. You wake up in the morning and ask if it's going to be a good day. NO! Am I going to eat a nice delicious breakfast? NO! Will the commute to work be an easy one? NO! If you begin each day with negativity, there is no chance there for a smile - no chance for a happy day. Even when something bad happens, no matter how minor or how big, shrug it off believing that better things are coming.
Yes, I'm going to have a good Monday! Yes you are too!
