“Make everyday a Positive Mental Attitude day”
Yesterday in the i2i office, we celebrated the life of W. Clement Stone. We made it a special day by walking in the countryside together, laughing and joking. We definitely created a Positive Mental Attitude day. Mr. Stone would have loved it!
Mr Stone was a great man and a great leader. His life is an amazing story, he was born 4th May 1902 and sold newspapers on the streets on Chicago at the age of 6. He lived to 100 and changed 1000s of peoples lives for the better. He gave hundreds of millions of dollars to charity and ran massive insurance companies.
Mr Stone believed that each and everyday should be a PMA day. There are some very simple tips and techniques from i2i which I’d like to share with you and you can start implementing instantly.
Here are some tips from i2i to make everyday a PMA day:
Tell all those around you that they are special to you. Keep telling them, make sure they know how special they are and what they mean to your world. If you had to live on desert island, what would you take, I can guarantee it would be your family and friends over the iPhone and laptop.
When you give 100% to anything, you will be rewarded. From a sales pitch to a sporting event, if you’re 100% prepared, 100% dedicated, 100% determined, then you’re ready to win! You’ve got to want it 100% for it to really happen. Hard work always pays off.
3) Work Life Balance
Work is important, but work only happens if there is life. Work to live not live to work. Surround yourself with your family and good friends, spend time with them and talk about their lives. Make sure you’re doing everything you can to help others, you will benefit so much more by giving than receiving.
You need to know what you want. You have to dream about the future, whatever the dream is, make sure it’s the clearest dream you have ever had. Think about it daily, whatever it is. You have to start thinking about it now and it will begin to happen.
Just thinking about smiling, makes you smile. Smile at someone, they smile back. If you go to a country where you can’t speak the language, you can smile and you’ll get a smile back. Smiling makes you happy. Do it daily.
