Now that the Olympics are over I thought I would dig through and point out some of the positive and fun stories and videos of the Olympics beyond what might have happened in the stadiums over in Rio.
But before we get to that maybe we can take a quick step back and explain why staying active and looking forward is so important and why you might be only hindering yourself by dwelling on past hardships and failures.
I used to focus more on negativity and all the big and small problems out there in the world we all deal with every day. Sure people make mistakes, and things don’t always go the way we want, and we fall out of love almost as quickly as we fall in love sometimes.
But successful people focus on WHATS NEXT not on what Happened or what didn’t work. Sure it’s important to remember and learn about such things but if you want to move ahead in life and have success your going to need to focus all your effort on positivity and what’s around the corner.
I know this from experience seeing coworkers speed ahead in their careers and earn more while sometimes at the same time spewing toxic negativity to everyone around them. But these ideas are not new and are featured in many popular self-help books.
If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until it gets so ugly you can hardly bear to look at it. A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams, and you will always look lovely. ~Roald Dahl
