Changing my mindset

Leave a comment

I’ve noticed over the years a quote will be brought to my attention, and the words, how they are perceived by me, feel like something that may have a profound affect on my life, and excitement is felt.

A short time later the feeling is gone and maybe the search is on for another quote, without even realizing it.

Maybe 365 quotes later, my mindset hasn’t changed at all, my frustration level may have though.

I have no desire to experience the ups and downs that come with constantly looking for a mantra because I don’t realize my life is a work in progress. It takes time to change. I give myself permission to be human.

The quote below is slowly having an affect on me, and at this point in time, these are the most important set of words I know. My mindset feels stronger!

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’ “ Erma Bombeck

I think that life is difficult. People have challenges. Family members get sick, people get older, you don’t always get the job or the promotion that you want. You have conflicts in your life. And really, life is about your resilience and your ability to go through your life and all of the ups and downs with a positive attitude.Jennifer Hyman

Begins with the one step

Some folks say planning to do something is the first step. For me, taking the first step is physical.

“Nothing can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human raceCalvin Coolidge
