With all life’s stresses, things that are totally out of your control, kids, family and the J.O.B. can make it difficult to keep a Positive Mojo. It is well known that a large majority of the U.S. working population say they are unhappy and unsatisfied with their jobs. So mojo is really related to feeling happy and satisfied in all areas of your life. Imagine leaving a sparkling smile with everyone you encounter each day. My point is, regardless of situations that you encounter in life’s path each day, it is imperative to project a positive mindset and attitude to succeed in your business and your personal life.
I would like to share a story that inspired me to write this blog. I have been caring for my mom that has dementia and is in denial that anything is wrong with her. Unfortunately we lost my father earlier this year and after 62 years of marriage, mom has slipped into a deep depression, understandable. I found myself in a house of constant turmoil, it is a fight to get her to take her medications, eat, bath and be somewhat active. She has become mean, in her words and even physical, and will say awful things to family members. All she wants to do is sleep all day and live in a dark dreary house and refuses help from anyone. Added in with all of this, we are discovering serious problems of unpaid bills and so much more.
I have been reading and watching videos on Mindset and positive thinking to improve my business skills to share with my clients. So imagine being broke down and pulled into two different directions at the same time. I was really struggling until I started listening to audios and videos from the great Ray Higdon on mindset and positive thinking. I realized this could help with my current situation, and began using only positive comments and tactics with my mom. So I got my Positive Mojo back.
The importance of all of this is simply stay positive no matter what life throws your way. If you react positively in your words, actions and posture others will notice and possibly take a look at themselves. When you hear “No, I’m not interested” or “Sounds like a scam” simply react by saying something positive. Here are 3 positive comments that work very effectively:
- No problem, I understand this may not be for everyone. So do you have a plan for your retirement?
- I absolutely understand time may be an issue, how long do you plan to continue working those long hours?
- So you are saying you can’t afford it, if money was not an issue do you think this may change your life?
Remember, the difference between CAN and CANNOT is only three letters. Three letters that determine your life’s direction.
P.S. If you find value in this blog, feel free to like, comment and share. If you have interest in improving your life and helping others, let’s work together to make the world a better place.
