Start the Day with a Positive Attitude

When you open your eyes in the morning, you set the tone for the day. Think of the words “alarm clock.” Alarm has a negative connotation. What do you think of when you hear fire, theft, smoke or police alarms? So, why would you want to wake up in the morning to an “alarm clock?”

Change the name to an “opportunity” clock. It may seem like a small change, but when you wake up, you’ll start your attitude off right by thinking, “what a great day!”

What happens instead is that some people love another five minutes in an unconscious state by hitting the snooze button. Then, they drag themselves to the window, open the drapes and say, “Good Lord, it’s morning again.”

Will that day be positive and filled with opportunities? With that attitude, one has already made a choice about what kind of day it will be. Why is all of this important to success in your life?
