Day 6 - Obstacle Man
I missed Day 5. It wasn't an off day. Just a day away from the computer. I wanted to write about the comedy show I saw the other night. I don't remember the last time I laughed that much. My jaw was hurting. Yesterday, was a day spent trying to remember each joke. But today I'm back on track. Read more of Mr. Peale. The story about the Obstacle Man. A man who when faced with a new project at work was always looking at the problems that were bound to arise. Until finally a colleague, a guy I call the Possibility Man, spoke up. It made me wonder, am I a Obstacle Woman or a Possibility Woman? I want to be the Possibility Woman. Not expecting trouble at every turn. But also not living in denial, thinking that no trouble would come. But rather having confidence that when troubles do come, I will find a way to remove them. And I can be, just like everyone else, it's a choice we get to make every day. We get to choose to fill our minds with positive thoughts. Thoughts of confidence. Thoughts of happiness. Or we can choose to fill our minds with the negative and constantly focus on the obstacles in our way. Who will you choose to be? The Obstacle Man/Woman or the Possibility Man/Woman? The choice is yours.
