I’ve been helping a lot with a new project and working with a great mentor. She’s one of the creators of Tools of Growth. This week, I woke up Monday with such excruciating pain in all my joints it was almost impossible to get around. Wednesday I finally had enough, went to the doctors, and was prescribed medication (which did help. thank goodness!). That night, while working with Roma, she asked how I was feeling. I told her how I was glad the meds were working because I was so miserable and didn’t want to hurt any more.
She’s been working with my husband (she’s actually his boss too at work) and their staff about SWITCHing your mind to think with a positive vs a negative. For example, with what I told her about not wnting to hurt and was miserable, I could have said “I’m so thankful the medication is working. I’m on the road to recovery!”
Jon’s implemented it at work, and realized that he needed to give more responsibility and ownership over projects to his employee. In turn, he’s less stressed, she’s highly motivated to work at succeeding, and it’s fired him up to keep working on more ideas. So he’s proposed we SWITCH our mind of thinking with all the things we want. Instead of saying what we’re unhappy with, change it around.
So, 2011 is going to be an amazing year! I started it off with placing 3rd in my family poker tournament (i’m usually one of the first 3 out!), my husband won first place in our football pool, and we’re going on vacation!!!! Big things are happening for Bling Diva Designs, and I’m taking all this opportunity to build that business up!
