Step 146 of the Journey: Positive potential
The Year of Responsibility and Small Steps
Step 146. I started the day tentatively, uncomfortable with a few things at work, but after a couple of great meetings I ended the day feeling energised, positive and enthusiastic. It’s amazing how our mood can be changed by our perceptions of what might be.
What if we search for the positive potential of a future event? It’s a habit to practise. Start with small steps, and every day build on those small steps. Just like I have done certain exercises and reading and writing every day for the last 146 days, why not introduce a small step of starting the day by thinking of the positive potential of something that will occur later in the day.
Add that action to my list of daily small steps and soon it will be an automatic action every morning, leading to a better outlook on life. Let’s try for the next 365 days.
Day 146, job done.
