What does that mean for you?
Let me tell you what it has come to mean for me. I will also point out that this attitude did not come easily to me … I learned it, and so can anyone.
I enjoy ALL aspects of my life. That’s it … that’s my first secret!
Like everyone there are challenges and disappointments, I may get frustrated and I may even get mad sometimes … but when I look at the big picture I love my life.
I am responsible for my own destiny … that is my second secret.
If something is not right in my world I can fix it in a couple of different ways. I can change the situation OR I can change how I view that situation. What my experience tells me is that almost always changing my attitude is the right answer.
I am the product of ALL my experiences … and I like who I am.
Not all of my experiences have been pleasant, I have not arrived where I am in a direct line, but the end result is pretty cool as far as I am concerned.
Some advice to REALLY enjoy your life:
1. Give more than you take … you will hear this from me a lot. I won’t even try to explain it.
2. Don’t wish away your days, even your hours … be in the moment and do your best, whatever you are doing.
3. ALWAYS be empathetic … look at both sides of every situation and give “the other person” the benefit of the doubt.
It all boils down to your ATTITUDE. Is your attitude good … or is it getting in the way of your happiness? You might want to take a peek at a blog entry I wrote about attitude back in 2006.
Have a GREAT weekend … I know I will.
PS. That’s me sitting at a bar in Venice two years ago … did I mention, Life is Good!
