Good morning and, as my good friend Bill Gillispie would say, happy Monday!
What was your first thought when you woke up this morning? Be honest please. Was it something like, “Oh dreads, it’s Monday?”
How we look at people, things, situations, problems and the world matter. Wayne Dyer was correct, how we look at them, changes how they look. If your first thought today was, oh no it’s Monday, you have likely predetermined a negative outlook on the day.
While, for many people, Monday does mean the end of a weekend, it also means the start of a new week. Perspective and our mental mindset matter. Today, we can learn new things, meet new people, create new opportunities, or go to new places. Did you “have to” go to work or school today? Or, did you “get to” go to where you are today?
Are you facing a challenge this week? Is that challenge a problem, or an opportunity? Again, how you look at it determines how it looks to you.
I’m excited to begin a new week with a new perspective. How about you?
How will you live and lead differently, or better, this week?
Go for it!
