Remember the good old days where…

All that mattered was Where and When?

It’s a pretty good plan…getting back to simplicity.

But with work, friends, family and commitments as we grow older, the Where and When, seems to be replaced by  How and Why.

Maybe we should loosen up a bit and be ready and excited for everything and anything that comes our way…we used to be that way, and there is no reason we can’t get back to the good old days.

Ever get Excited…

And it seems to come out of nowhere??

Take it and run with it – without hesitation!

Many times we go cruising along, from day to day and week to week, just going about our business and only getting excited occasionally, because we are focused on what’s in front of us and not what’s around us.

Take it all in…what’s around, us and the great opportunities which lie in our future – let’s get out of our heads for a bit…because when we take it all in…our excitement will build.

So when we are having one of those days that seem to come out of nowhere, it has probably come from our recent reflection on our grateful thoughts, and our positive outlook.

The long journey towards…

The middle…that’s where most of us end up.

Not the best, and not the worst – Average – which is the best of the worst, and the worst of the best.

The middle, the normal – like everyone else.

The ones who end up in the middle follow the rest of the pack, the herd mentality – Safe – no glory, but no defeat either – and taking the path of least resistance will always get us there.

Now that we know who gets to the middle, why, and how to get there, we can choose if it’s the place for us.

If it is – that’s OK – some like to play it safe and like to be average…but for those of us that don’t, we now know what to do…to be different.

It’s not work…

It’s Practice.

Spin it and Win it!

By doing something on a repeated basis, we only get better at it as we do it. So why not think of it as practice and see just how good we can get.

Remember, it’s not what we do, it’s how we do it.

So whatever we do, and choose to Spin, whether it’s dusting, playing guitar, homework, exercise, working…whatever…Let’s take it to the Top!

Thinking back, to one of…

Our favorite “jacked up” memories, can make us feel good, because if we liked it, and it was “jacked up”, it was unique to us.

One of mine was when I stayed at my Grandparents house…breakfast was a big deal, and the lumpy cream of wheat was my favorite!

I’m sure my Grandma didn’t try to make it lumpy, it just turned out that way, and I used to look for the lumps…the more the better.

So think back to your favorite “jacked up” memory, and you will feel good inside.

THE MAN WHO SOLD HOT DOGS

There was a man who lived by the side of the road and sold hot dogs.
He was hard of hearing, so he had no radio.
He had trouble with his eyes, so he read no newspaper.
But he sold good hot dogs.
He put signs up on the highway telling how good they were.
He stood on the side of the road and cried “Buy a hot dog, mister?”
And people bought.
He increased his meat and bun orders.
He bought a bigger stove to take care of his trade.
He finally got his son home from college to help him out.
But then something happened.
His son said, “Father, haven’t you been listening to the radio?”
“Haven’t you been reading the newspaper?”
There’s a big depression.”
“The European situation is terrible.”
The domestic situation is worse.”
Whereupon the father thought, “Well, my son has been to college: he reads the papers and listens to the radio, he ought to know.”
So his father cut down on his meat and bun orders, took down his advertising signs, and no longer bothered to stand out on the highway to sell his hot dogs.
And his hot dog sales fell almost overnight.
“You’re right, son.” the father said to the boy.
“We are certainly in the middle of a great depression.”
