Motivational Mondays.....

So I was thinking to myself, "Self, today is Monday; the beginning of the week."  Self replied, "I know are we ready?"

We all know how hard Mondays can be.  It's the beginning of the work week.  The beginning of the school week.  Time for school buses and traffic jams. Starbucks and daycare pickups.  Whew!! I'm tired already...  But wait! (in my best infomercial voice) We do not have to start the week in dread, reluctance, or hesitancy.  Oh no. (shakes head)  But on the contrary, we can start every week off with a bang! Nothing less than that of a WINNING attitude. This is your week and no amount of traffic, workplace drama, or bull hockey will bring you down!!

There is one thing I would like to share with you all on this Monday: Your attitude (way of thinking or position/disposition) determines your mood and your mood determines your altitude (level of success or even failure).  So I encourage you to change your way of thinking about today and all the future Mondays that you are blessed to see.  See them as days that polish you and show off your BEST traits! (what other qualities do you have right?)

While there are many books that focus on how we think and how it plays a part in our life, I would like to suggest Dr. Wayne Dyer's book, Chang Your Thoughts-Chang Your Life.  In his book, Dr. Dyer uses the teachings of Lao-tzu, an ancient spiritual leader of China, to illustrate how your thoughts affect your life.

So let's start today people!! Your Monday will be a great day because you want it to be!  No matter what comes your way, remain positive. Remember your attitude will determine which direction you go.
