There is truth here. There is more and more neuroscience to support that the more positive you remain the better you perform. This is why the Navy SEAL’s mantra is short and sweet – Good. Mine is ccd – Keep working. The words you mutter to yourself in MOT (moments of truth) matter. What then is the root of real, deep seated, positivity?
Where does your hope come from, my friend? What gives you hope? Whom do you trust? For me, my hope comes from God. So, I’m storing up prayers like the squirrel stores up nuts for winter. The more we bathe in prayer, now, the more positive we’ll remain when lifes adversity comes calling. We don’t know the hour of our deepest need but we know it’s coming. Prepare your positive, resilient response. Pray. Ask God for help. And build a reservoir of strength within. It is amazing how much faith is a mindset issue as it is a belief issue. Pray. Prepare. Practice applying your PA with rigorous discipline. Focus. Finish. And, rinse and repeat because you love the gift you’ve been given.
“For in this hope we were saved but hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.” Romans 8:24-25.
What is your mindset today? Have you developed a mantra to help train your brain for MOT? What is the root of your negativity, positivity, or melancholy kinda mindset? Slow down and reflect, my friend. I hope you have a blessed Labor (Opus) day. I hold you up in prayer and am grateful for you being in my life. I hope to be with you soon. I hope you sense my sincere desire to transform your performance in work and life.
