Rule #3 Fuel Your Ride With Positive Energy

Every day when we look at the gas pump of life we have a choice between positive energy and negative energy. Positive energy is high-octane fuel for the ride of your life while negative energy causes sludge to accumulate in your energy pipeline.

But what do I do with the negativity I have?

You let it go. You release it. You throw it out. You transform it. When the work is piled high on your desk, think about how thankful you are to even have a job while so many are unemployed. When school is driving you crazy, think about the fact that you are healthy enough to work. When you are stuck in traffic, be thankful that you can drive a car while so many have to walk miles just to get clean water.

As I told my father a number of years ago when he lost the love of his life-my mother, ‘You had the kind of love for so many years that many spend a lifetime searching for and never find. Let’s be thankful for that.’

“So you’re saying that I need to keep fueling my life with positive energy if I want to be successful?” George asked.

“I’m not saying it”

IM SCREAMING IT!
