I took a couple of days off. Mostly because of what is happening in the political landscape. I fear I would be caught in the whirlwind of speculation.
It seems as though the News Channels don't report the news, really. If there is a breaking story of course they will report it. A cat stuck in a well, or a police car chase in California. That's all important breaking news. And of course, anything that has to do with the weather.
For the most part though, the talking heads spend a lot of time speculating and bringing in experts who further speculate, and of course the top guys who speculate on what the experts just speculated on. A lot of "What Ifs"
IF is the biggest word in the english language. Most things depend on IF. 'If I win the lottery, then....' or 'If so and so gets his promotion, then I might take his place on the food chain'... 'If my team wins the next three games they might take the championship'
If you meet the right person, if you make enough money, if you pray for it, if if if if if if............
Seems like you are leaving a lot of stuff to chance.
Here is a simple affirmation. You CAN change the outcome of a lot of things in YOUR life by just changing the word if to the word when. Call it what you want. Positive thinking, whatever. IT WORKS because it changes your perspective from victim to winner. From now on, say 'When I win the lottery' or 'when I get that promotion' The outcome may not be what you expected. Who knows, it might be better.
Have a great day!
