    Be Optimistic

    Our thinking/attitude affects our body. Negative thinking slows our digestive system. An “I can’t” attitude curbs any significant progress in our life. A positive outlook increases the percentage of reaching our goal even to running a thriving profitable business. Jesus once said to a sick man that he would be healed according to amount of his faith. This might be also applied to progress in our lives.

    Our Lord was disappointed and mentioned to his disciples that they had so little faith. He wanted them to amplify their asking or enlarge their dreams. God imparts wisdom and prosperity liberally. We often think with a scarcity mode when we should be expanding our goals. Aim at CEO not the next slot up. Fix our sights on influencing a whole city or selling a million of our product.

    Today, I choose to be optimistic and will reject all excuses or irrational reasons.
