Rob este tipul de om pe care ti-ar placea sa-l urasti: e intotdeauna bine dispus si are intotdeauna ceva pozitiv

de spus. Daca cineva il intreaba cum ii merge, el raspunde: "Daca ar fi mai bine de atat, ar fi nevoi de doi oameni pentru atata bine!" E un optimist. Daca un coleg are o zi rea, Rob reuseste intotdeauna sa-l faca sa vada partea pozitiva a situatiei. Am devenit curios si intr-o zi l-am intrebat: "Nu inteleg, nu este cu putinta sa fii optimist in toate zilele, tu cum reusesti?" Rob imi raspunse: "In fiecare zi cand ma trezesc, stiu ca am doua posibilitati: Pot sa aleg sa fiu bine dispus sau pot sa aleg sa fiu rau dispus. Si aleg sa fiu bine dispus. Cand mi se intampla ceva rau, pot sa aleg intre a fi o victima sau pot sa aleg sa invat din ce mi s-a intamplat. Si eu aleg sa i nvat. De fiecare data cand cineva vine la mine sa se lamenteze pentru ceva, pot sa aleg intre a-i accepta plangerile sau pot alege sa-l ajut sa vada latura pozitiva a vietii. Si eu aleg intotdeauna partea buna a vietii. "Dar asta nu este intotdeauna asa de usor" i-am spus . "Ba da, zise Rob, intreaga viata este o problema de optiuni. Cand indepartezi din viata tot ceea ce nu conteaza cu adevarat, totul devine o chestiune de optiuni. depinde de tine sa alegi cum sa reactionezi la diverse situatii, tu trebuie sa decizi cum sa-i lasi pe altii sa-ti influenteze atitudinea fata de viata. Tu alegi sa fii bine sau rau dispus. Pana la sfarsit tu esti acela care decizi cum sa-ti traiesti viata". Dupa aceasta discutie am pierdut legatura cu Rob fiindca mi-am schimbat locul de munca, dar adesea ma regaseam gandindu-ma la cuvintele lui atunci optam pentru ceva in viata in loc sa reactionez la evenimente. Apoi am aflat ca Rob a avut un accident groaznic la locul de munca, a cazut de la 18 metri inaltime si dupa o operatie de 8 ore si dupa o indelungata spitalizare a iesit avand o placa de otel in spate. M-am dus sa-l vad si l-am intrebat daca se simte tot atat de bine. "Vrei sa vezi cicatricile mele? " "Dar cum faci sa

ramai pozitiv dupa ce ti s-a intamplat? "In timp ce cadeam, primul lucru care mi-a venit in minte a fost fetita mea. Apoi in timp ce zaceam pe pamant, mi-am zis ca pot sa aleg intre a muri si a trai. Si am ales sa traiesc" "Dar nu ti-a fost frica?" "Atunci cand m-au dus la spital si am vazut expresiile fetelor surorilor si doctorilor, mi-a fost frica fiindca era de parca se uitau la un om mort. Apoi un infirmier m-a intrebat daca am alergie si am raspuns : DA! Toti m-au privit si atunci am urlat: sunt alergic la gravitatie! Toti au izbucnit in ras, si eu le-am spus: acum operati-ma ca un om viu, nu ca pe unul care e deja mort!" Rob m-a invatat ca in fiecare zi avem posibilitatea de a alege sa traim o viata deplina. Si este inutil sa fim mereu ingrijorati pentru maine fiindca fiecare zi vine cu problemele ei cu care trebuie sa traim, si maine ne vom gandi la problemele de maine. La urma urmei, azi este ziua de maine pentru care iti faceai probleme
ieri. ? Acum ai doua optiuni: sa stergi acest document sau sa-l trimiti celor pe care ii iubesti. Iti spun ce am ales eu: voi trai din plin fiecare zi, fiecare rasuflare, si presus de toate, fiecare prietenie. .......

"Adevarul care ii face pe oameni liberi este in cea mai mare parte adevarul pe care oamenii n-ar vrea sa-l auda." Herbert Agar
People are not excellent because they achieve great things, people achieve great things because they are excellent. The greatest discovery of my generation is that you can alter your life by altering your attitude. Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it. Everything starts with an attitude. Hardening of the attitudes is the most deadly disease on the face of the earth. How you get up in the morning determines how far you will go in life.

Real optimism has reason to complain but prefers to smile. (William Aurthor Ward) Real optimism is exposed to the worst but expects the best. (William Aurthor Ward) Real optimism sees the negative but accentuates the positive. (William Aurthor Ward) Real optimism knows the difficulties but believes they can be overcome. (William Aurthor Ward) Real optimism is aware of problems but recognizes the solutions. (William Aurthor Ward) Ask yourself: is your attitude worth catching? Before you can change your thinking, you have to change what goes in your mind. You can't tailor make the situations in your life but you can tailor make your attitudes to fit the situations. To respond is positive but to react is negative. The right train of thought can take you to a better station in life. You have a great attitude when circumstances happens to you and it doesn't effect your attitude. Consider that whatever misfortune may be your lot, someone has always had it worse than you - always. Focus on your abilities rather than your limitations. The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they make the best of everything. Clear your mind of can't, just drop the "T" because it just stands for trouble anyways. We can't direct the wind but we can adjust the sails. God chooses what we go through, we choose how we go through it. (John Wooden)

Misery is an option. You attitude is an outward expression of an inward feeling. (John Maxwell) We are either the masters or victims of our attitudes. (John Maxwell) The situation you live in doesn't have to live in you. (Roberta Flank) If you want a certain quality, act as if you already have it. (William James) There are 2 ways of meeting difficulties: 1) you can alter the difficulties, 2) you can alter yourself to meet them. When your attitude exceeds your ability, then the impossible becomes possible. People are as happy as they make their minds up to be. (Abraham Lincoln) If you are having a tough time changing your future, change your attitude first. Attitude more than aptitude, will determine your altitude in life. Change your thoughts and you change your world. (Norman Vincent Peale) If you don't expect anything out of life, then you will accomplish all your goals. If your thinking isn't right then your values, attitudes and everything that effects your life won't be right either. Whoever controls your attitude controls the way you live. So do you let others control your attitude or do you control it??? You will control your mind or it will control you. Don't build obstacles in your mind, remember that God is with you. Attitude is the little thing that makes a big difference. Whenever you look back at your life, be positive. Whenever you look at the present, be realistic. Whenever you look to the future, be bold The ancestor of every action is a thought. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

A simple truth: it's impossible to be depressed when you take action. Strong convictions precede great actions. Logic won't change an emotion but action will. Motivation follows the action not action follows the motivation. It's been my observation that most people get ahead during the times others waste. People may doubt what you say, but they will always believe what you do. What you do speaks so loud that I can't hear what you say. The greatest mistake a person can make is to do nothing. (John Maxwell) The difference between a successful person and others is not lack of strength, lack of knowledge but lack of will. (Vince Lombardi) The difference between successful people and others often lies in daily actions that are easy to do - or easy not to do. Both may not want to do them, but successful people does them anyway. You prove your worth by your actions not your mouth. (Pat Riley) They always say that time changes things, but you have to change them yourself. Happy people plan actions not results. (Dennis Waitley) Your future is hidden from what you do from day to day. The difference between successful people and others is knowledge but knowledge that is acted upon. Don't complain about things you permit, if you don't like what's going on in your life, then change it. Even if you are on the right track, you will get ran over if you just sit there. (Will Rogers)

People judge you by your actions, not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold but so does a hard-boiled egg. Seeing is better than looking. Listening is better than hearing. Doing is better than talking. Action usually proceeds attitude. "Quality questions create a quality life. Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers." Anthony Robbins The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake. You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses " You may be disappointed if you fail, " but you are doomed if you dont try. " Dont be afraid your life will end; " be afraid that it will never begin. People only see what they are prepared to see. Ralph Waldo Emerson Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself Unknown It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone- but it takes a lifetime to forget someone. "To know what is right and not to do it is the worst cowardice." .....Confucius (B.C. 551-479) A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man. Lana Turner

See, the problem is that God gives men a brain and a penis, and only enough blood to run one at a time. Robin Williams Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. Albert Schweitzer The beginning is the most important part of the work. Plato The pain of not doing something, is greater than the pain of doing something. William Dennis Miner The best way to predict the future is to create it. Success is often the result of taking a misstep in the right direction. Al Bernstein Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars. Les Brown
