꾸짖는 것은 쉽다. 그래서 그 많은 사람들이 그것을 한다.
이성으로 칭찬하는 것은 어렵다. 그래서 그렇게 칭찬을 하는
사람은 몇 명 안된다.

- 안셀름 포이에르바흐

조금만 생각하면 누군가를 비난하고 비판하는 일은 누군든지 어렵지 않게 할 수 있는 일이다. 그래서, 좋은 않은 상황이 발생하면 사람들은 우선 화를 내면서 비난할 대상을 찾는 쉬운 방법을 선택한다. 비판하기 전에 먼저 원인을 파악하고 대안을 생각하며, 긍정적인 면을 보고자 하는 노력들이 많아 지기를 기대해 본다.

신의 선택

고도원의 아침편지(2008년 12월13일)

신의 책상 위에는
이런 글이 씌어 있습니다.
'네가 만일 불행하다고 말하며 다닌다면
불행이 정말 어떤 것인지 보여 주겠다.
또한 네가 만일 행복하다고 말하며 다닌다면
행복이 정말 어떤 것인지 보여주겠다.'

- 버니 S. 시겔의《내 마음에도 운동이 필요해》중에서 -

* 긍정과 부정은 항상 존재합니다.
중요한 것은 무엇을 선택하느냐에 있습니다.
부정적인 사고를 선택하면 신도 지금 이 순간의 행복조차
빼앗아 갑니다. 긍정적인 생각으로 행복하다고
고백하십시오. 정말 행복이 무엇인지
신께서 당신을 선택할 것입니다.
희망이 곧 행복입니다.

Saying Yes
By: Kenrick Cleveland

"All that man achieves, and all that he fails to achieve is a direct result of his own thoughts." -James Allen

John Lennon, at the height of his popularity, had his heart captured by one simple word: yes. He was rich, talented, desired and loved by people all over the world and had the option of nearly any woman he wanted. And 'yes' was what did it for him.

He attended an exhibit in England and Yoko Ono was one of the artists. The piece in question was a ladder which led to a tiny sign and a magnifying glass. In order to see what was written on this tiny sign, one had to climb the ladder and look through this magnifying glass. It said, '
Yes'.

It started with a yes. John later said he liked the piece so much because of it's positive message. He said if it had been something negative, he wouldn't have found Yoko or her work interesting in the least.

We all say 'yes' or derivatives of it every day (yeah, uh huh, ya). A positive response to a question or situation. Yes.

When we say yes, many times we are projecting an attitude and an affirmation, more than just agreement, and we are showing an openness and welcoming.

As a persuader, I love to hear 'yes'.

Self awareness and attitude go hand in hand with persuasion. This requires that you "check in" with yourself and pay special attention to all the signs and feelings we experience.

There's a young women who works at the cafe where I work sometimes. She has
the ultimate 'people suck' attitude. 'I'll never get what I want. Why can't I ever find a parking spot. I'm so fat. I'm always broke. . .' Wow. This is not a 'can do' attitude. She is most certainly not saying 'yes'.

By changing our loops, our negative tapes, for positive ones, and you'll be rewarded immeasurably. It takes a lot of conscious work and can sometimes be uncomfortable.

There have been days when I let negative moods get the better of me. Sometimes it happens without you even knowing it. I'm not normally a complainer. I take action when action is warranted, but I had a bad day not too long ago where I was irritated by absolutely everything. I noticed the ugly paint job on the house down the street, I noticed the horrible driver in traffic. And then something happened that interrupted my (temporary) pattern of negativity. Someone just said, 'Are you okay?' It made me realize that, yeah, I had really been complaining a lot, it had been a bad day. I took a deep cleansing breath, checked in with myself, and intentionally readjusted my attitude. Presto! That ugly paint job was inconsequential.

Life happens. Part of life includes 'bad' things. We have the choice to respond with either positivity or negativity. Emotions are choices.

Charles Hannel, author of 'The Master Key System', (an incredible study in self-improvement and higher consciousness) said of attitude, "
The predominant thought or the mental attitude is the magnet, and the law is that like attracts like, consequently, the mental attitude will invariably attract such conditions as correspond to its nature."

As you begin to reorient yourself to a 'yes' attitude, you will get more 'yes' in return.
