My wife has this canvas in her office that says, "Today is a good day...to have a good day."
I've never given too much thought about it, except that it was an inspirational phrase....until recently.
I happened to be helping her with some work in her office and re-read for the first time in a while. I began to think about it a little deep and found that I absolutely love it. I wish I had thought of the phrase!
Why? Because it is not just a motivational phrase but a reminder that we have a choice. Every day we have a choice when we get out of bed of what kind of day we are going to have. We get to choose how we will approach things. We get to choose our attitude. We get to choose everything and how we respond to what happens in our lives.
People forget that. Many people go about just letting "life happen to them" and then reacting to it. They don't seem to have control over anything and cede this personal power to whatever outside influences are acting on their life at the moment.
Don't let this happen to you. You choose. Don't let outside influences control you or your destiny.
The simplest place to start with your attitude. This is something you can choose. You can choose to have a good attitude, a positive, grateful one every day or a poor, negative one. And your attitude will manifest on the outside. It is truly a reflection of your inner game. So, if you choose to have a good attitude, it will manifest good things in your life. If you choose a poor attitude, it will do the opposite.
Remember, you get to wake up every day and say "Today is a good day...to have a good day." Now, go out and make it so!
