5 ways to have a better attitude...NOW!

5 ways to have a better attitude...NOW!



Hello friend. Let me start by saying, we all won't have a 100% positive attitude 100% of the time. That's  okay though, we're ALL overcoming to become. In this article, I'm speaking to myself as much as I am to you. Thing is, we all know having a positive attitude can and will change our lives. If we all know it, why aren't we all doing it? 

Simple answer? Because it's extremely difficult.  

I won't argue with you there. With that said, I began looking for some small tweaks that could get us on the path to a better attitude, and ultimately a better life. I'd like to share them with you. 

1. Start your day by reading something positive

Every success coach, business coach, life coach, or any coach that cares about you will tell you to start your day by reading something positive. This isn't a bunch of bull, it works. Ever hear of "Garbage in, Garbage out?" This works in your mind as well. Feeding it positive will start your day in a positive mode, and it's likely to continue. You don't have to read 3 hours each morning, start with something small. Even if it's just one chapter, one devotion, one Proverb. Remember, everything big was once small.

2.Listen to more music

Ever get an instant feeling of euphoria when your favorite song comes on? Make that song come on more often. Play it whenever you're down. Play it when you're happy. Play it when you don't know what else to do! Just keep playing it! 


3.Have something you like..

In these days and times, it seems like everyone is on some type restriction. Whether it's delaying gratification or simply a diet, it's okay to have a little of something you like. Do whatever you have to do to keep your mind state positive. If a certain type of candy makes you happy, have a piece. If travelling makes you happy, take a weekend. Enjoy the journey..


4.Set Goals

It's been said "true happiness can only be achieved when accomplishing a goal." We all like to win. You're winning when you're on course towards your personal goals. Imagine how good it's going to feel when you get there? Guess what? The milestones feel good on the way too! There's nothing like knowing you're a little closer to your dreams. Basketball games wouldn't be very entertaining without goals, neither will your life. Put yours up. 


5. Reward your accomplishments

If you set a goal and accomplish it, enjoy yourself.....for the day! Then move on..

However, while you're enjoying yourself, REWARD YOURSELF! You deserve it! There's nothing wrong with a little reward! Dangle the carrot in front of your own face if you have to! If you don't treat you great, who will? 

I hope this helps. We'll get better. Let's get to work..

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game? 
Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life?
Are you close to it? 
You can’t change the past. 
Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck? 
Was it worth it?
Are you getting what you set out for?
It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures!

People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never created a plan....or if they did tried to exec…

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry"

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry" 
Don't let anybody guilt you into a miserable marriage! 
The majority of married people that you know are miserable because they settled to societal pressures .....even if they won't admit it. 
Some folks out here getting married to say you're married.....but to each his own....as for me and my house if we can't be peaceful, loyal, & ain't eem trying to shoot at the same baskets & pay the same taxes I gotta keep it moving!
This is not to say marriage can't work. I absolutely believe it can, but with the right connection, reasons, and plan! But what do I know? I'm just a fat kid that eats too many crabcakes

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…
