Love negative people because they make you positive.
When someone is negative I make it a point to find the positive. If they are talking about something negative I take the challenge to discover the positive side. Negative people drain the energy out of those they are around. Rather than letting the negativity drain you love them. Learn to appreciate them. They make you be even more positive. By their being negative it makes us want to be even that much more positive. It won’t always be easy or fun, but it is a refreshing way to deal with them. In time they may also see how you live and actually start to become more positive. Not everyone will but some just might. No matter what though, always find the positive side of every situation. Step back and have a positive perspective. Your life will be better and so will the lives of those you come into contact. Be the thermostat and not the thermometer. Set the standard for the room. Bring a positive environment to light. Are you loving negative people today?

You have very little control of what goes on around you, but total control of how you respond to it.
Stuff going to happen in your life. Not all is good and not all is bad. There is nothing you can do about what comes into your life. What we can control is how we deal with it. We have total power over how our attitude is toward what happens. By allowing circumstances to dictate your response, you are being controlled by life. It’s time to take control of your emotions. It’s time to be in charge of how you respond to the issues of life. When you accept responsibility for your responses; then you start living with purpose and destiny. As long as you allow life to determine how you respond there will be no growth. As you begin to do this, you will grow and begin to get stronger emotionally. You can do this! Don’t let others and circumstances control you another minute. Take charge and control of your life! Are you controlling your responses today?

I expect great things to happen today!
You get what you expect. I am one those people that love Monday’s! It’s a fresh start to a new week. I love it! I am believing that today will be the greatest day of my life and of yours. The truth is, it is up to you and me if it will be the greatest day or not. Make the choice right now that today and each day from now on will be the most awesome day ever. It’s not dependent on the circumstances or what you are facing that determines it. What makes today the greatest day ever is your perspective and attitude toward it. How you handle and deal with the adversity you face today. Don’t let others determine whether you have a great day or not. Never give another person that much control and power over your life. You have the mental toughness to be in charge of your outlook and perspective on your day. I encourage you today to expect great things to happen today. Make today the greatest ever! How do you approach each day?

When I find perspective, I establish power over my current circumstances.
The power of perspective is limitless. You can change your attitude about anything by just changing your perspective. Even how you feel toward yourself. Before making a decision on any situation you are in, look at it from various perspectives. Especially when you are dealing with other people. Look at the issue from their point of view. You will be amazed at what you will discover when you change your perspective. Far too many people go through life without ever changing their perspective. Your destiny depends on you having perspective and not just your own. Although you may not always like what you see from other perspectives. It will be life changing. There is never just one point-of-view, but several. See things from others side of the fence. What is your perspective today?

The decision to adjust our perspective on a situation, seeing that its only purpose is to show us truth changes everything.
I have often said that no matter what I want to know the truth about a situation, especially about myself. I may not like it and it may make me mad, but it’s truth and you can stand on truth. That’s when it’s time to adjust our perspective. See the situation for what it really is and then make changes. When you see yourself in the perspective of truth; only then can you make the correct adjustments. Don’t run from truth that you don’t like. Facts change everyday, just like our feelings change. Facts and feelings are fickle, but truth is strong and will sustain you. Nothing can keep you going toward your purpose like knowing the truth. So today I encourage you to go on a quest for truth. Only perspective is the truth perspective from this moment forward. Do you have a truth perspective today?

If a negative event occurs and you keep a positive present moment focus perspective, then you will determine the outcome.
When something negative happens in your life, how do you act? I had a negative event occur in my life not too long ago, and rather than act like I normally would have; I chose to stay in the present moment and to stay positive. Rather than letting the negative event cause you to act negatively, stay in the right perspective. Use what has happened as a learning moment. We all are going to have negative things happen, wouldn’t it be better to learn and grow from them. When you stay positive and have the right perspective you will determine how things end. Even if it appears that it has not ended well for you, with the right perspective a negative ending can actually be positive. How you perceive the ending is how it will be. You have the power to take the negative and turn it around to the positive. Stay grounded and centered in the present. Keep your perspective positive and see your life go to a whole new level. What is your perspective today?

Responsibility is being accountable for your perspective and controlling how you respond to adversity.
Every day you will face some type of adversity. For some it is just getting out of bed that is adversity to them. One major key to how you deal with adversity is your perspective. Many ask the question; “Why me?” when faced with adversity, however, the question should be; “Why not me?”. You have to know that your response to adversity is all about your perspective to it. When you play the role of a victim or have a pity party because you are facing a difficult situation you will never be a champion. Make a conscious decision today to change your perspective, your outlook on adversity. Decide today to have a champion mentality and perspective. Make adversity work for you. Be the person who thrives under that pressure. You have what it takes to be the best! What is your adversity perspective today?

A fundamental principle of human psychology and loving others is learning to change your perspective.
A change in your perspective will change your life. When you are able to see situations in a different way, you will make a difference in your life and others. Take the time to look at things from others point of view. See through their eyes for a change. I have always been told that things aren’t always as they seem. When you change your perspective you will know that too. Seeing through other’s eyes will enable you to see their pain, their struggles. When you take the focus off your stuff and focus on loving others, you will help them heal. There is no way to love others if you don’t look from their perspective. There are hurting people all around you everyday. Many times they will never express their pain with words. But by a change in your perspective you will see their hurts and wounds. Help others heal by seeing through their eyes today. Change your perspective and change your life. Are you ready for a different perspective today?

Challenge your limiting beliefs and your perspective.
It’s easy to get focused on what’s wrong in life, what we don’t have, and how big our obstacles are. If we’re not careful, we’ll lose sight of all the good things God has done. We’ll take for granted our family, friends, health and the opportunities God has blessed us with. We’ll get so busy and stressed out that we won’t appreciate the gift of today. What’s happened? Our perspective has gotten off. Perspective is all about how we see a situation. There’s power in your perspective because you will draw into your life what you constantly meditate on. Business may be slow. The economy may be down. The wrong perspective is, “I’ll never make it. It’s just too much.” The right perspective is, “I was created with a purpose. I can do this.” Today, I encourage you to evaluate your perspective. Choose focus on the truth no matter what is happening in your circumstances. Remember, as you set your perspective in the right direction, your life will follow. When you keep an attitude of believing the best and expectancy, you open the door for the best to happen to you. What is your perspective today?

Rather than looking at failures as major disappointments, turn the loss into a gain. Change your perspective.
We all have failed at one time or another. I know in my life, I have failed many times. For a long time I had failure mentality. Since I was failing at things I tried to do, I considered myself a failure. If you are in that place today, I want to encourage you to change your thought process. Change your perspective. Just because you fail doesn’t mean you are a failure. Don’t internalize what happened, as to describe and define who you are. Change the way you look at what happened. Learn from the experience. Look at what you did and how you can change and grow. You are not a failure! You only become a failure when you give up and quit. Change your perspective about who you are. See yourself for the who you really are; a champion! You are the one who never gives up! You got this! Are you changing your failure perspective today?
