Bounce This!

How big a bouncer are you?

No, I don’t mean the kind of bouncer who not so gently suggested that I leave a bar in Myrtle Beach a few years ago.

IT WOULD SEEM THAT JUMPING UP ON THE BAR AND EXPLAINING TO A BUNCH OF SOUTH CAROLINA REDNECKS THAT CHAPEL HILL IS THE ONLY REAL CAROLINA WAS FROWNED UPON IN THAT ESTABLISHMENT!!

Amen.

Bouncing back is about resilience, the hot, new word when dealing with the topic of change.

How resilient are you? How quickly can you bounce back from a challenge, change or difficult life situation?

In Positivity, Barbara Frederickson’s research shows that having a plan for bringing positivity (thoughts, activities, meditations, music, people) into your life helps create resilience; helps you bounce back.

Too many folks rely on luck to bring them back to a productive, positive state of mind. Don’t rely on chance to get you back in the groove.

I’m right in the middle of coming up with a plan to get me through a challenging time. You can do it, too.

Have a great weekend, buy Positivity and read it! See you Monday.

PS…if you’re in Cowboys in Myrtle Beach…tell’em Mike said, “Bite me.” They’ll know who you mean.
