I have found a lot of people have a "Glass Half Empty" instead of a "Glass Half Full" way of looking at things.
Why not take some time out to appreciate the many great things that you do have. Do you enjoy breathing? Have you got a roof over your head? Have you had a decent meal this week? In essence, we've all been given the tremendous gift of life but many of us are deleting it from our reality because we're focusing on the wrong stuff!
Don't focus on the things that will make you miserable, focus on the good stuff . . . on the good things that you "do" have. I once head an interesting statement: "What you focus on grows, what you focus on becomes real and you will always find what you focus on!"
Don't be a workaholic. So many times people arrive at the end of their life only to find that they've been climbing the ladder of success . . . And every step they've been taking has been taking them away from what really matters!
When you're on your deathbed, you won't say, "If only I'd brought that red Ferrari!" What will matter is people and the most important people in your life are your friends and family. So don't have them play second fiddle to your other seemingly more important ambitions!
A lot of people mean well, but they don't always give the best advice. Fact is, everyone's got an opinion on everything! Tune out some of the voices that may be leading you down the garden path and listen closely to those who are living the life that you truly want to live!
Be selective and make sure that those that you're following have achieved a level of success in the area that you're seeking success. I once went to hear a success guru talk about "how to" build a great marriage and "how to" raise great kids. Half way through the event, I learnt that the speaker has no kids and had never even been married!
Make it a great one,
