I have to admit that I get in trouble because some of the Scott logic that comes out of my mouth doesn’t sit well with lots of folks these days – and they let me know.
One of the biggest comments…
“You seem like such a positive guy, and then it’s like something clicks in your head and go negative and ruin my day.”
While I don’t think I ever go negative, I’ve heard that many, many times.
Here’s the thing…
It would be easy for me to get caught in the feel-good trap of chasing positivity – if only for the sake of being positive. But I’m not interested in that. I am interested in the results. For me, that is a peaceful, content, joyful, and meaningful life. If you’ve been alive for more than a couple of decades, you know all of that is found lurking in the truth. That’s why I consider myself a practical positive guy, and you should too.
I believe an optimistic attitude is a power in life; I also think that you can never be truly happy until you are willing to dig deep into the not-so-positive challenges in life. Until you do that, you’ll you blocked. That’s why you’ll always hear me cover both sides. Frankly, I’m not interested in what we can and will do in our lives, I’m interested in the millions of interactions, decisions, and feelings we encounter every day that become the life we will have lived someday.
Stephen Fry said, “sticks and stone may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
Almost everything that freaks folks out begins with words that come from others and yourself. Keep that in mind because…
When you choose to be positive, practical, and ground yourself in the truth, you will become at peace with everything around you – including yourself.
