Ever notice how someone else’s behavior can have an impact on your day? Maybe someone cut you off on your way home. Do you get to your house fuming mad…or do you just smile and think “I’m glad I’m not in that much of a rush”? What about a server who goes above and beyond to make sure you have not just a perfect meal but a great dining experience? Makes you smile and more than happy to leave a good tip, right? So if someone outside of our circle can affect us, how much do our own thoughts affect us?
They say to never tell a child they are bad, but rather to tell them that what they did was wrong, but they are still a good child. Why? Because of the power of words. Tell a child he is bad and he will believe you. He will live up to the name you’ve called him and he will become a bad child. Praise your children, your spouse…your SELF! When we stay positive in our thoughts, then our words and actions will follow in that same positive flow.
