Why is it important to start each day by reading or listening to positive statements?

Do you want to have a great day or just a medium day? When you put the positive thoughts in each morning you will put out positive thoughts all day long.

If you will get in a long-term habit of doing this bigger and better things will happen in your life. When you concentrate on the positives in your life, you stir up the desire to seize the day with winning ideas and good things happen to you.

I dare you to think positive every day! You can thank me when you see me.

How is your day going? You say not so well! Negative thinking always brings negative results!

Whatever you’re doing, stop thinking about everything that can go wrong and start thinking about all the good things in your life. My CPA called last week and said you have got to pay several more thousand in taxes.

My thoughts were, “That is great 5 years ago I was getting money back but now I am making a lot more money because sales are up.” Look for the good things in your life every day.

Several years ago when sales were down I pledged I would never complain about big tax bills and I will not because that means sales are good. I dare you to look for the good things in your life every day, I promise they are out there.
