Daily challenges are something we all experience, but how we respond to those challenges can determine how we feel about the remainder of our day. Here are a few reminders to keep your day from derailing.
- Others’ opinions do not define your reality. Stop worrying about what others are thinking about you. You can never make everyone happy, so stop trying. Be yourself and leave your mark on the world.
- You cannot change your past, but you can reshape your future. Focus on what you can control and make the best of every minute moving forward.
- Positive thoughts cultivate positive results. Positive thinking means you look for solutions and expect to find them. You don’t ignore problems but actively look for ways to solve them. You take responsibility for your life on a consistent basis because you understand you are in control of how your life progresses.
- No one can steal your joy unless you allow them. This is a tough one, but one of the most important. There will always be people in your life who want to rob you of your joy because they don’t have it. You do not need to be accepted by others. You just need to accept yourself.
This week, take it one day at a time. That’s the magic.
Something to Think About

Learn how to time block your important activities each day. Don’t let stuff and interruptions interfere with what is important and what deserves your time.
