Positive VS Negative~~~~~~~Susie Austin


“Once you replace negative thoughts

 with positive ones,

 you’ll start having positive results.”

 Willie Nelson

I have been thinking and hearing a lot about postitve attitude lately, and I think today is a great day to start a new exercise and begin to realize we all can become more positive people.

I suggest you make yourself a scorecard that will fit into your purse or pocket.  Design it in a way that you have positive one side and negative on the other. Maybe like a golf scorecard and feel free to decorate it. Concentrate on the words and actions you are sending to others. Every time you say or do something positive make a little check-mark on the positive side and when you make a negative comment or non verbal display of actions check the negative side of the card.  

This is your own personal scorecard and no one needs to know you’re doing this; it is for your benefit alone. You may be a bit alarmed at amount of check-marks on the negative side but understand you are becoming aware of your behavior. After a few days hopefully you will find yourself making more checks on the positive side of your scorecard. I think it is a good reminder to work on being a more positive person and getting to know yourself better. 

   I don’t believe people try to send negative words or messages, we just do not realize the effect we have on others and many times we are not even aware we are being negative. The scorecard is a wonderful way to get to know yourself and the messages you send. I believe after a few days you will notice a definite change. The fun part of this exercise is, you are able to make significant progress in a relatively short period of time as well exercise total responsibility for yourself and your actions.

    The most thorough and informative information I have found. Enjoyed it immensely.

  2. This is the philosophy behind Eldon Taylor’s works. This is what got me interested & involved with his products. Have you heard of him?
    My husband & I found such wonderful results with his cd’s that it motivated us to become distributor’s so others could benefit like we did.
    I love his mantra…”When believing in yourself matters.”
