Every day we wake up we have a choice to make… we can decide right there and then in that precious moment, that today is going to be a fantastic day.


This is because despite what happens to us, and around us, our attitude is the determining factor in whether it will be a good day or not.


Yes, good things may happen if we have a negative attitude, but we are less likely to notice them or pay any attention to them. It is far more likely that we will we just see the bad stuff.


And likewise, bad things happen even if we have a positive attitude but guess what… we won’t notice the ones that don’t concern us and when negative things happen to us, we find solutions much quicker. We shake off the little things that may otherwise have bothered us. We don’t sit there complaining about the things we have no control over. The day becomes lighter, brighter, and so much more fun to experience.


But how to get your mind in a positive state first thing in the morning?


Firstly, plan to be in a good mood when you wake up before you go to sleep. I know it sounds a little bizarre, but if you go to bed thinking that you are going to have a great night’s sleep and wake up feeling full of positive energy, excited for the day ahead you will be surprised at just what a difference it can make.

But in the off chance you don’t wake up and bounce out of bed try picking one or more of these empowering affirmations and say them out loud as you shower and get ready to make today your best day so far…
