What the…Was That a Unicorn?
“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”
Did you ever have one of those days in which everything was going your way?
I had a week like that – an entire week! It was quite delightful.
I can’t put my finger on exactly what went right. Moreover, it’s not like things didn’t go wrong because plenty of things did go wrong indeed.
Nonetheless, it was a fantastic week and I find myself looking forward to another one.
Attitude, folks, it’s all in the attitude.
And, for the past month or so, I’ve grown so tired of those emotions! By the way, so did my kids, my friends, my neighbors and my colleagues.
My mentor suggested I make a quick list of my emotions, so I did.
Then he told me to write down what caused those emotions, so I did.
Then he told me to honestly identify what, if anything, I could control about what CAUSED the emotions, and I tried.
My dear, wise mentor just sat there and smiled.
Wait for it…
I cannot control the CAUSE!
I can, however, control the emotion that results.
