Optimistic people bring positive energy to any situation. Pessimistic people suck energy from any situation. You control both your attitude and your friends – choose wisely.
You know the situation. We’ve all been there. You are in a room, in a conversation, with people that seem to be feeding off negative energy. You have a decision to make. You can easily jump into the negative gossip or complaining . . . it is so easy to go with the flow in the room.
OR . . . you can step up. You have the power . . . you can end it. You can change the flow to positive . . . you can embrace the productive discomfort and STEP UP. It’s extremely difficult . . . it takes courage . . . it takes commitment to your convictions, but you want to do it. You want to be the “game changer.”
Today, right now, commit to bringing the positive to every conversation. Commit to stepping up and leading. A discipline-driven life, a life lived Above the Line, requires each of us to take ownership of our space in every corner of lives. You control your attitude and the behavior you permit around you. OWN IT!
