Remember: Today is "Thankful Thursday"...make a list and EXPRESS your thanks today!
Yesterday I began discussing the first part of one of my catch phrases that I say at the start of every podcast, "Your greatest education takes place on the campus of your mind." and, today I will discuss - you guessed it - the 2nd half of this phrase.
We've talked about the fact that your greatest education (mine, yours, EVERYONE'S) is the education that we get by living life each and every day. Now it is important for us to spend a few minutes talking about the "library" that is part of this education - the library that is located on the campus of our mind.
I have discussed on more than one occasion how important it is for us to pay close attention to what we allow in our minds. It has an impact on whether we have a POSITIVE or a NEGATIVE attitude or mindset. Obviously, if we allow positive influence in we will have a positive attitude/mindset and, if we have a negative influence we will have a negative attitude/mindset. Simple, huh?
However, as simple as that is there are so many of us that continue to allow negative influences into our minds and then wonder why we can't seem to make any headway on approaching life with a positive mindset.
IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!
Have you ever heard of your car being a "university on wheels"? This phrase has been used many times to emphasize the fact that, while we are driving we can take advantage of that time by listening to tapes, CD's, mp3's of powerful information by such people as Jim Rohn, Bob Proctor, Zig Zigler and Mike Spillman....yeah, I had to throw my name in there too!
Why spend time listening to negative news that will likely do nothing but get you discouraged and depressed? Why listen to negative news that seems to focus on "the sky is falling" mentality?
Hey, it's YOUR library. It's YOUR education. It's YOUR curriculum. How's it working out for you?
Remember, it's NOT the certificate on the wall but it IS what you learn on how to navigate through LIFE and keep yourself positive and focused as well as having this positive impact on all that you come into contact with each and every day.
Get your education and then become a TEACHER!
And, as you do so, be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
