“I simply remember my favorite things, and then I don’t feel so bad…”
~Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins)
I hope you used my last JAM to remove some negative inputs into your life and added positive replacements. If you haven’t, I invite you to stop, re-read Tuesday’s JAM, and make these powerful changes to help you achieve your goals for 2017.
If you have done it – great! You’ve made a significant positive step to a better you. However, watch out. There will always be challenges to your intentions. Those negative inputs you intend to stop are likely part of some fairly hard-wired habits that will tug at you to return to your pre-changed comfortable “normal” way of life. It may sound corny, but today’s quote, lyrics from a favorite childhood movie memory for me (and probably you), is something that plays in my head when I need a reminder to focus on my positive inputs – or what I call “my favorite (positive) things”. For me, these include more time with my wife and my family. It also includes reading inspiring books (usually on Kindle), having intellectual discussions/debates on a wide variety of subjects with colleagues and friends, and helping colleagues solve challenges and achieve positive results. What are your favorite (positive) things?
