This month in June, our theme will be “mindset.”  Mindset is the frame of mind that gives us particular perspectives or a way of thinking.  When I read Winston Churchill’s quote, I think of people in my life who believe everyone is out to get them and their life is a perpetual rerun of the worst day ever.  I also think of the people in my life who always seem to have sunshine flowing in their brains, I want to be those sunshine people!  I am constantly asking them to send their positive vibes my way during those rough days and admire that mindset.  Who do you want to be?  …who do you think you are most days?

Use this quote to reflect daily on your own mindset.  Think about how to reframe any negative thoughts to a positive perspective.  Maybe a project failed, but what can you learn from it?  What can you do better tomorrow? What small things happened today that were positive?  Maybe it’s so small, it’s that you got to work on time or were able to get some exercise by walking your dog this morning.  Whatever is happening in your life, work on a positive mindset and I guarantee the more you use it, the less overwhelmed and negative your life will seem.  If it doesn’t work out, it’s ok!  Try again and keep it going.  Go for it!
