Thinking Positive Every Day

Springtime -  a new beginning

“When you are joyful, when you say yes to life and have fun and project positivity all around you, you become a sun in the center of every constellation, and people want to be near you.”
Shannon L. Alder

As we spring forward with the time change and things begin to bloom outside, this season reminds us of a time of new beginnings.  Actually, each and every day can be a new beginning for every one of us by embracing a positive attitude.  There are very few things that we can actually control in any given day.  We are told when to report to work, how much our monthly bills will be and how fast we should drive, just to name a few.  But, the one thing that we all have the choice to make when we wake up……is to embrace the day with a positive attitude. 

Just think how powerful and upbeat every human encounter and each daily experience can be if we each choose to greet the day with a positive attitude.  Your leadership style says a lot about you.  If you are a leader who tries to find that positive thing in each person that makes them shine and feel good about themselves, just think what effect you will have on that individual’s day.  I encourage each of you to make that decision to start every day with a positive outlook.

The Blue Ridge Conference on Leadership is that kind of experience.  I have attended this conference for the last thirty years and each time I am “on the mountain,” I always feel better for having been there.  I am surrounded by good speakers who encourage me to think positively and to be a positive leader.  I am surrounded by good people who encourage me to be a better person.  And I am surrounded by a conference spirit that encourages me to serve others.

I hope that you will mark your calendars now and plan to attend this year’s conference and join me in that time of a “new beginning”.
