3. HOW TO MAINTAIN A POSITIVE ATTITUDE EVEN DURING TOUGH TIMES--PART II
In the previous eNL (http://www.wolfrinke.com/CEFILES/cenl.htm) I described
the following strategies to help you maintain a positive attitude:
Once you get the day started be sure to:
Use positive greetings. Take advantage of the "fact" that many people want to know how you're doing. They do, don't they? Why else would they say, "How are you?" (Are you chuckling, or are you taking me too seriously?) Right, that's merely a rhetorical question. However, how you respond is very important. Do you answer on autopilot with "Fine"? Or worse, do you reply with: "Not too bad" or "It could be worse." Or do you forget that it is a rhetorical question, and proceed to tell the other person everything she didn't really want to know? Instead, make it a habit to answer in a positive fashion with "Great", "Fantastic," "Excellent" or, on days when you don't feel quite as positive, with "Good, and I'm getting better!" This strategy will send a positive affirmation to your subconscious and reinforce the positive programming you started in the morning. See http://www.wolfrinke.com/CEFILES/cenl.htm. Because your subconscious is unable to tell fact from fiction, it will accept everything you send it as if it were true. Therefore you are creating your own positive "reality." Also be sure to say farewell in a positive fashion. Instead of using the worn out phrase "Have a good day," remind yourself and others that they are in charge of their lives, by saying. "MAKE it a great day!"
Smile. Find something positive to say to everyone you care about and don't forget to smile. Somehow at the end of the day you will feel much better about the human race, your profession and most importantly about yourself. Why? Because whatever you give is what you get!
Have fun. Make a decision throughout the day that no matter how tough things get, you expect to have fun, because if it's fun it will get done!
Transform your thoughts. Any time a negative thought, anger, jealousy or sadness creeps into your mind, substitute something positive in its place. When you think positively, work seems much easier and enjoyable, and you will be much more energized and encouraged. You make a better impression on your clients, co-workers and even your boss, which encourages them to think more favorably of you, which comes in handy when your boss has to select someone to promote or lay off. Plus when you think more positively about others, you build stronger and more productive relationships--leading to greater success and satisfaction at work and at home.
Choose to consistently focus on the positive and you will live a happier, healthier and maybe even wealthier life even during these tough times.
If you would like to learn other hard hitting strategies that will help you survive these tough times, read my "How to Maximize Professional Potential & Increase Your Earning Power in Nutrition & Dietetics, 3ed Edition," (C187) approved for 30 CPEUs, available at http://www.wolfrinke.com/CEFILES/cepd.html#C187.

5. HUMOR BREAK
Research has found that people who rise early have a more positive and cheerful disposition than those who sleep late.
That's why people sleep late--so they don't have to put up with all
those cheerful positive people.
