Good Morning Lottery

Too often we let the mood we wake up in determine our day.

Don’t forget that you’re the CEO of your mind. Don’t settle for the first proposal. If you aren’t dazzled by the thoughts you woke up with, put something else in there. Think about someone who is good to you, read a poem, reflect on a win, imagine your favorite place, picture something you want to have happen today.

You’re never obligated to keep running with the first report that comes in. Rather than follow that thought, call an emergency board meeting.

Brainstorm more options until you roll up on something good.

You can win the good-morning-lottery every day.

Because this is the only game you get to be in charge of.

And it’s the most important one.
