What is your mood today???
I have for you the best answer to the most asked question on the planet.
What you are experiencing right now is what’s called intellectually confounding.
You want to know the answer because its the best, yet you’re not even sure what the question is.
The most asked question on Planet Earth is….
“How are you”?
I’m sorry to report the most asked question on planet earth is given the least amount of attention. The least amount of care. The least consideration.
But not me. I won’t give in to mediocrity.
Average is the best of the worst and the worst of the best.
And easy is the enemy of progress.
I have taken an oath, a challenge to disrupt the world.
You only control one thing in your life. ONE. Your mood.
Everything else is out of your control.
Yes, I don’t smoke, I don’t drink or drug, I eat right and exercise-but that’s no guarantee that I’ll live another day. I could get hit by a bus tomorrow. I could get a lousy call from the Dr.
ANYTHING is possible.
Which also means anything IS possible.
So, I choose to control what I CAN control.
Yup, its the six inches between my ears.
But it’s my call.
That’s on ME!
So each and everyday I pick a mood from my Choose a Mood Box.
It’s my choice so I stacked the deck.
For the last 6 months each and every time someone asked me how I was I answered “AMAZING”, “AWESOME”, “FANTASTIC”. And I say it with enthusiasm; SELL IT!
These last 3 weeks I have chosen “MAGNIFICENT”! It has a little more formality to it….like I’m wearing a suit and tie. Maybe a top hat and spectacle.
Why, you ask? WHY NOT? If you get to choose, why not choose great?
And when people ask me why I’m Magnificent, my current reply is; “We live in the greatest country in the world, during the most advanced time in human history. My job isn’t so difficult that I need the intellect of splitting atoms, nor so physically demanding that I’m shoveling coal. So what could I possibly complain about? Seriously?! I GET TO WAKE UP.”
Do I need to be stressed if things don’t go well at work? Can they survive without me? I pass a graveyard everyday on my morning commute; it’s loaded with people who thought they were irreplaceable. The world keeps turning. Sun keeps rising and with any luck, in the morning so will I. And when I do, I’ll greet it with the best good morning you ever saw.
