“If the day ahead leaves you feeling challenged – then start your day
by challenging your attitude!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
The Story Behind the Picture
Sometimes a phrase comes into your mind at the start of the day, and you just run with it!’ And I remember this phrase, because it came into my mind one morning at 5am. I had a restless night – some flight connections had not gone well, the hotel check in process was not smooth, and I had to get up to get ready to go on stage with minimal sleep.
I was grumpy, frustrated and tired. That’s not a good state to be in when you have to go out and motivate a few thousand people!
And so in my mind, I was going though the thought process of how I would shift my attitude. Once I started doing that, the phrase came to my mind pretty quickly!
The concept of changing your attitude is pretty critical when you are faced with barriers, challenges, disappointments or other setbacks.
