It's Simple - Have a Good Day

You're not going to make me have a bad day. If there's oxygen on earth and I'm breathing, it's going to be a good day. ~Cotton Fitzsimmons

What kind of drama and crisis' have been thrown at you today.  How did you react?  Did you let it stop you?  Did you let it use up your energy and make you unable to think clearly?   If you grumble and complain about the small stuff you'll have a real good chance that people will jump on board with you.  What good comes of that?  Misery loves company?  Leaders do not bring other people down nor do they let others bring them down.  It's never productive.  As a leader, goal yourself to convert others negative energy into positive productive energy daily.  You decide what kind of day you are going to have every day.  Choose wisely.

1. Close your eyes
2. Breathe
3. Empty your mind
4. As thoughts come in, acknowledge and whisk them away
5. Focus on your breathing
6. Think about the affirmation:

"I’m choose to have a great day."


  1. Hi Lorin,

    One of the ways we know the mind works (through cognitive psychology and neuroscience), is that the brain does not distiguish the negative language of an affirmation. Ill give you an example: " Do not think about a green elephant flying in the sky." ... Too late, right? But I told you not to!

    Ok, so the principle is that we think in 1. Words, which trigger 2. Pictures, and bring about 3. Emotion. Affirmations are designed to trigger the pictures and emotion of what we want, which we naturally begin to move towards.

    Therefore a better way to put your affirmation is "I'm just going to have a wonderful day."

    Hope this is helpful.

  2. Grieg,
    You are so right! In the pursuit of "snappy" writing, I forgot to pay attention to that very important principle! Correction will be made! Thank you VERY much for the feedback and reminder. Kind regards, Lorin
