Thought of the Moment #1

What a great day today is going to be!!! You know one of the things I learned growing up is attitude is everything. If you wake up with negative energy and a poor attitude towards where you are at in life the day will only reflect your thoughts and attitude. However if you wake up and say to yourself more than once within the first couple of minuets of being awake "I am going to conquer the world today" then that is the very thing you will accomplish. I often read the obituaries and some would see that as a negative behavior, however I see it as a way to build your goals in life. Take for instance the obit. that talks about a persons work life and the amount of time they spent at work and how great of an employee that person was. Hey, I respect that and that is just fine and some would love to have that obit. But me personally, I like to see the obits. that talk about the type of father and person he was and how they gave back to the community and how all their children and grandchildren and great children are going to deeply miss him and all of his little habits. You know like if he got up everyday and went to the coffee shop to have a cup o joe with his old buds that he had known since he was a young kid. In fact, I found one that motivated me so much that I keep it in my sock drawer (if you want a copy let me know! this man was a stud). At the end of the day the only thing that matters is that you are working towards what you want, not what society tells you to do and that all begins with the attitude you have when you wake up in the morning!!! "I am going to conquer the world today".
