Monday, 5 a.m. The alarm goes off. Darn. Another day at the old grind. Damn. The boss is always in a bad mood on Monday. What the hell. There has got to be a better way. Work sucks. I might call in sick.
Monday, 4:30 a.m. You wake up. At 5 a.m. the alarm goes off. You are already up, showered, and working on your second cup. What a life. You are going to kick some rear end today. Oh yeah!
Why is it that some folks go through life like the first example while others live everything like the second example. As an eternal optimist and very happy person, I have gone through all of my life just knowing that no matter how bad things get, I will come out even better than before. No matter what the challenge, I can do it.
I have known plenty of people who live their life just trying to get by. They never really give anything a 110% effort. They attack nothing with zeal. They set no goals and achieve basically nothing. Why? What is the difference? Any ideas?
