Positive Mental Attitude


So...there I was....having endured 6 hours of blistering criticism...tired....down-trodden...and a little bit angry....almost on the verge of self-pity....okay, quickly sinking into self-pity...

You've been there, right? You have just a crappy day, nothing goes right, seems like the deck is stacked against you....you start to doubt yourself and your abilities...you are on the edge of just running as far and as fast as you can...

So what to do? Well, for me, it was a nice steak, a glass of red wine, a Facebook chat with my little girl who is 2400 miles away, and a talk with the one who loves me most...my wife, and a good solid 8 hours of sleep. Good stuff, right?

When you find yourself in the midst of a potential setback, you gotta realize that you are the same great person you were before someone started in on you. You are still the same talented, driven, wonderful individual you were before. Remind yourself of that and get on with setting things to rights.

It's all between your ears.
