"When things go wrong don't go with them" - Elvis Presley

Having a bad day usually will affect your mood in a negative way. Are the things that drive us into these bad moods really worth worrying about? Having confidence that things will get better is an extremely important outlook that I take on my life when things are not going so well. Always try to be optimistic in times of peril and you will see that this optimistic outlook will directly affect your mood.

Everyone knows certain people that just seem to drain the life out of every person they come in contact with. Anytime something goes wrong it is not their fault and conversely, every-time something goes right they take the credit. These blood sucking types of people are the types of people that if they were lit on fire you would go to lunch before calling 911. The main point of this post is to get you to look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself: are you the type of person you want to be?

Here are some points of perspective to think about every-time you take a turn to negative town.

  • If you can read this blog... you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

  • If you have money in the bak, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish or in your car... you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

  • If you have food in the refrigerator  clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep... you are richer than 75% of this world.

  • If you woke up this morning with more health than illness... you are more blessed than the million who will not survive the week.


  1. Love it Mike. If we would just make this simple adjustment in our lives we would look at life so much differently. Thanks for sharing -- I'm enjoying your blog.
