People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.
Love them anyway!

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway!

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway!

The good you do today, will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway!

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway!

The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest people with the smallest minds;
Think big anyway!

People favor underdogs, but follow only top dogs.
Fight for underdogs anyway!

What you spend years building up may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway!

People really need help, but will attack you if you help them.
Help them anyway!

Give the world the best you have and it may kick you in the teeth.
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway!

In today’s media cycle there is an overwhelming imbalance in terms of the number of positive messages that are emanating from mainstream media relative to negative messages we hear every day.

In today’s more challenging environment the explosion of doom and gloom is simply unparalleled, and to be newsworthy or to get air time or to be in print, it must be negative.

Now, I am not expecting to see media outlets to suddenly flood us with good news; I believe we just need some balance. This proliferation of negativity has induced fear into many people’s psyche and certainly altered their view of reality.

Unfortunately, despite all of the opportunities that are before us, we live in fear. That fear grips us until we are afraid to try, afraid to think big or explore the doors that are open to us. We stare at the closed doors telling ourselves we cannot do what we would like or need to do, and we feel boxed in and suffocate the creativity we were born with. Negativity and fear robs our lives of vitality until we reach the point that we just do not try anymore.

So it’s time to take action and become the guardian to your mind.

We need to become the gatekeepers to our minds and allow in only positive and constructive information. Delete the mind numbing negativity at its source and actively go out of our way to save ourselves from its onslaught.

Our subconscious acts like a computer so “garbage in, garbage out”. Some calculate that about 60,000 thoughts zip through our minds on a daily basis – 90% of those are the same thoughts as the previous day. Obviously, if we continue with the same thought process we can expect the same results. We can’t be negative! It is time to fill our minds with positive thoughts and create positive changes in our lives.

Start today and be a positive sponge. What a difference it will make!

“Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.”
