So are you a glass half empty or a glass half full person? My answer? Well I always wanted to be the glass half full person, but sometimes it seemed like there was a crack in my glass–as quickly as it started to fill up, the leak began. Recognizing that this was not moving me toward a positive outcome was my first step towards changing it. Sort of step 1 in my 12 step program to success!
Step 2: Admitting that it has had limited me
Step 3: Recognizing the triggers (fear, insecurity)
Step 4: Understanding the reasons
Step 5: Accepting that it is up to me to change
Step 6: Making a commitment to change
Step 7: Setting an outcome based goal
Step 8: Identifying alternate responses/actions
Step 9: Creating opportunities to succeed
Step 10: Surrounding myself with positive people
Step: 11: Refocusing my energies towards my goals
Step 12: Start fresh with a new glass and start pouring until the cup runneth over with success!!
So with my new glass, I raise a toast to all of you who are empowering yourself to move towards the positive by refocusing your energy, surrounding yourself with positive people, and creating opportunities to succeed!
