Optimism on a gloomy morning!

I woke up this morning feeling a bit discouraged due to a number of small insignificant reasons. So this "happy pill" is as much for you as it is for me - lucky me who has all of you to share this with!

I truly believe that "being an optimist" is one of my greatest assets. Life will be full of challenges and opportunities so it is our ability to overcome or embrace those that will define the kind of life we create for ourselves. And being an optimist sure makes that a whole lot easier.

Over 50 years ago, a little book called The Power of Positive Thinking took the world by storm. Written by a minister, Dr. Normal Vincent Peale, the book was a remarkable mix of natural psychological insight and faith-based principles applied to everyday problems of living.

Here are some thoughts from the book that I totally dig and find usefull even in today's modern world:

1. Formulate and stamp indelibly on you mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. And hold this picture tenaciously. You can't ever permit it to fade. Over time your mind will develop this picture, brighten the detail. Never doubt the reality of the mental image, because doing so is dangerous. The mind also tries to complete what it pictures. So always picture "success" no matter how badly things seem to be going at the moment.

2. Whenever a negative thought concerning your personal powers come into mind, deliberately voice a positive thought to cancel it out.

3. Do not build up obstacles in your imagination. Minimize every so-called obstacle. Difficulties must be studied and efficiently dealt with to be eliminated, but they must be seen only for what they are. They must not be inflated by fear thoughts.

4. Make a true estimate of your own ability -- then raise it 10 percent. Do not become egotistical, but develop a wholesome self-respect. Believe in your own powers.

Kind of makes zense don't you think!

Lot's of love from a hotel room in Stockholm!

Trine...feeling better already...thanks!

  1. That IWC Portofino range was given birth on a three months to a 1 gone by, and even cartier replica sale the nation's brand is based on the nation's very good classicism: leaf-shaped hands and fingers, hassle-free black colored and magical knobs, and even a luxurious court case model.

Very little crappy propaganda these! That polished-steel implemented guns and even hands and fingers, surface exceptionally well with the black colored face and the soft sunray polished. All sorts of things these was highly properly achieved. That arising vary helps the right in-born analyzing belonging to the 60 minutes. Really a few small-scale lean against in rolex replica uk green implemented in the 30-minute and even 12-hour submission counters, soberly light it face. Having no an important tachometer climb in the chronograph, which inturn ensures substantially with the white half about this sit back and watch, helps an important max cutting open belonging to the face and even a bit longer hands and fingers rather than at several other chronographs.
