What do you think about first thing in the morning?
Does it seem that you wake up with worries of the day on your mind, or are you recalling a pleasant, positive memory?
When most of us wake up our minds are running us...we are not running, or directing, our minds. So, we get what we get and our moods and days reflect that.
What if you had a short, positive ritual that you started every day with?
It could be a prayer, a favorite song you listen to (I'm partial to The Stones'' "Start Me Up" on football Saturdays), a fragrance, a taste, someone you call, a view, a $100 bill; it could be whatever you deem positive.
Millions of people have simple, structured ways to begin their days so they get off to a positive start.
They are directing their minds, not letting their minds direct them.
How'd your day begin?
