Having two kids under the age of six I find myself saying that phrase more often than not. If you have young kids I am sure you can relate, but what I found interesting the other day was I needed this phrase to be directed to myself. I have been told that one of my strengths is my “Attitude”. For the most part I would agree but I am human just like the rest of you and I was having a bad day. Those of you who own your own business know where I am coming from. Some days are great and you feel like you are on top of the world. And then some days you feel like you have crashed and burned. In life and business there are many things that you just can’t change or have control over, however, there is one thing that you always have control over and that is your “Attitude.” As I wrote in “Success Depends on You” the one thing you have total control over is your choice. Sure things can be bad at times but why make it worse by being negative about it. Change your attitude and realize that being positive is going to make a bad thing much easier to cope with!
And yes, it took me all day to get out of my funk but I did and you know what, had I not changed my attitude it might still be bad!
In health and wealth,
I am sitting in a hotel room in FT. Worth snowed in. We are going through the blizzard of 2011 and trying to celebrate Super Bowl XLV. Dallas is not set up for this crazy weather, however, as bad as it has been due to closings and cancellations of Super Bowl events one common theme has emerged down here. That theme is sometimes you just have to deal with the circumstances and make the best of it. So, let me ask you what issues are you dealing with that are out of your control? Recognize what those circumstances are and move forward. Quit letting things you can not control keep you from becoming better. Well, that is it for this edition of “Open Blog Friday” because the snow has ended and the sun is out. We are off to meet some of the ESPN guys. I will hopefully have some pics to share of my fabulous weekend, sleet or snow the game will go on!
The first two weeks of the college football season is over and my team is still atop the national rankings. I know a lot of my friends will give me a hard time for the teams we played the last two weeks but regardless of who we played there are always going to be people who will be naysayers or will try to bring you down. You need to avoid these people like the plague. And if you have personal training clients that do nothing but bring your enthusiasm or passion down every time you meet with them it is a must to cut ties immediately. In all the years that I have been involved in managing personal trainers I have never seen a positive outcome occur when a personal trainer has a client that does not connect with them. I know it is difficult to turn down a paid personal training session but let me tell you that in the long run you will come out ahead if you sever the relationship before it gets out of control. So, the take away from this post is that there is going to be a time when you encounter someone who is going to try and take you down and if that occurs stand up and be a leader. Tell the personal training client that you can no longer work with them and move on. Trust me you will stay on top if you listen to me!
