Self Improvement

“If you expect the best, you will be the best. Learn to use one of the most powerful laws in this world; change your mental habits to belief instead of disbelief. Learn to expect, not to doubt. In so doing, you bring everything into the realm of possibility.” — Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

Possibility thinking goes contrary to what we have learned in this world. We learn critical thinking, never to accept anything at face value. Challenge and confirm all theory. We have restaurant critics, movie critics, on and on… we learn how to “productively criticize” our colleagues or subordinates. Then on a personal side, we are continually questioning ourselves looking for the flaw(s).

I was with a friend recently that said to me they had been going to “CODA” meetings. He said that the meetings seemed to be good, they are focused on overcoming the challenges of codependence. But, he said they seem to slant towards the negative and his conversations after the meetings were always about how “sick we are”. He then told me that he had started to attend “Toastmasters”. He said these professionals are all positive and helpful people. Lawyers, Doctors and sales people all looking to improve in their lives and are helpful in guiding him as well. He said that his conversations after the meetings were always positive and helpful, he then looked at me for a moment and said, “You are right, I feel better when I am improving and not focusing on my weaknesses”.

We are here for a flicker, we need to focus on what is right in our lives and how we can improve it. We need to focus on the best in us and the worst will slip away. We are powerful beyond measure we simply need to believe! Life is good…

Go, Go, Go…
