I was sitting here the other day dreading going out to check on a job our staff is cleaning.
It was the only real task I had to do all day so it wasn’t like I was overloaded with too much work!
I was only going to check up on a medium size office, fairly easy to clean, not much trash. It’s really just a routine check on our staff.
Why was I dreading it so much?
Well for one it’s been rainy day here in New Jersey. It is getting colder by the minute to boot (and I do not like the cold weather). I just gave myself some really poor reasons for not wanting to go out and make sure the money keeps flowing in didn’t I?
Our lack of motivation and happiness is based solely on what we think. It’s all between our ears as they say! I could talk myself into being really miserable before I go out to this job and be grumpy through the entire job which could effect my performance in doing the job.
So to get me out of my funk about going out in the rain and cold, I have to change the way I look at things. I need to appreciate nature and keep reminding myself that rain helps everything grow and fills the reservoirs with drinking water.
In other words I must change what is between my ears right now and find reasons why I should get happy and go out do the job and be grateful for having it.
I also must remind myself that I am going out to make money. I like to eat, have a roof over my head, wear nice cloths and drive a nice car. I can’t get that by sitting and staring out the window un-motivated and miserable.
I must take a page out of my dad’s book, he never complained about having to go to work, he always appreciated having a job right up to his 99 ½ year, and actually missed going to work when he did finally retire.
My message to you is: Work hard while you can, build your business and appreciate your customers, they put the food on your table, clothes on your back and a roof over your head.
If you think negative thoughts, you will be a negative person. If you think positive thoughts you will be a positive person. Which do you want to be? Remember it is all between your ears.
I’ll end this post with a quote from one of my favorite people…
“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.”
