Positive Thinking

Posted by debrahelwig on February 25, 2009

Saw a great tweet today from @Lifeblazing – “Just when the caterpillar thought its world was over, it changed into a butterfly. Hold on! WINGS are coming!”

I could point you to dozens of posts by ZenHabits, Escape from Cubicle Nation, The Fluent SelfThom Singer, HelloMyNameisScott, and lots of other very smart people about how your thought life affects your ability to function – at work, at home, in networking, in creativity.

I’m not saying it’s all sunlight and roses in the workplace right now. But I *am* saying that how you choose to interpret the actions and activities in the world around you directly affects how comfortable you’re going to be during what appears to be a mighty difficult “holding on” phase.

Attitudes are contagious, too. If you make an effort to “get your smile on”, you might be surprised how your colleagues – and your customers – respond.

WINGS are coming. But don’t mope til they arrive. See if changing your thought patterns can’t help you make a tiny bit of magic for yourself – and those who work around you – in the meantime.
