Have a great day my friend!

Who dropped the ball?

What little choice will you make today?

Make the choices that answer these questions:

❓

What can I do? 

❓

How can I help?

❓

How can I change things?

How can I improve my situation / world / city / street / house/ family and finally myself?!

How can I change any of that?

How can I improve a little bit?

One question at a time. 
One step at a time.
One breathe at a time.

It’s NOT about:

❕

When will “they”?

❕

Why can’t “anyone”?

❕

Whodunnit?

It’s all about you, my friend.

It’s all about me! 

Rephrase those questions. The QBQ.

What can “I” do?
How can “I” change?

It all starts with a change of mindset.  

You are not the victim of circumstance and nobody is conspiring against you. 

The change of mindset will start your growth.

Because, if you don’t have that mindset how can you dream big? 
How can you make this year any different than last year?

Are you relying on a miracle? 

(although that would be nice, it is not so practical…)

Don’t wait for miracles.

Start looking inwards at yourself. 

Take ownership of your life.

As Hillel the Elder said: “If it is to be, it is up to me!”

Speakers will awe us with the dangers they faced and the glory they found…

We’ll shake their hand, buy their book, and get their autograph.

We still walk right out and into “The Wall of Reality”

If are not given anything practical, then we are bound to fail.

Give People Tools, Not Slogans!!

Be fast (Purim theme)

Do you know the secret of how to attain happiness?

Purim, the time of simcha (joy) is approaching.

Happiness is not just about being happy with material things like money, a new car, or a house.

The secret to happiness lies within you.

Be happy with your lot.

“Who is rich? One who is happy with his lot. ” –Ethics of the Fathers 4.1

❕

Accept who you are.

❕

Accept where you are.

❕

Accept what you are.

❕

Accept what you do.

❕

Accept what you have. 

❕

Accept where you come from, where you have been.

Accept everything about you, including your past, your childhood and your mistakes! 

Let go of the guilt and shame of the past.

Guilt only causes suffering for you and others around you.

Looking back, you will realize that your past was bashert (predestined) for you.

The more you let go of the guilt, the less your past will bother you.

Bring on the simcha!

L’Chaim!

BS yourself

I’m sure you heard this before.

“BS yourself to functionality. Lie, cheat and steal yourself to positivity!” — Lou Landau

When you find yourself in a difficult situation, and it does not affect you in a negative way, that in itself is already a positive reinforcement. 

Everyday look for ways to grow in a positive way.

Yes. We DO allow that.

BS yourself to functionality can also mean that it is real.

In some situations when it just doesn’t ‘feel positive’, then you tell yourself, “I’m going to allow it”!

Your modus operandi should be:

I gotta stay positive!

I want to stay positive!

It’s good for me to stay positive!

When negative thoughts enter your mind and says, “Hey, you gotta be realistic..”. 

Then you BS yourself and tell yourself, “Nah, not today. Today I am not realistic…”

Despite everything, keep on walking ‘blindly’ and keep positive!

You’re doing great, my friend. Keep at it!

Holding people accountable

The other day I made a run for it.

It was really pouring out there. I had to get from my home to my car, and got sopping wet while doing it. 

And, like I always tell you my friend. I voiced my my oft-repeated phrase out loud. 

“I do not let the weather affect me negatively!”

I just had to say it to myself, there in the car, and really internalize it. 

Yes, I was uncomfortable.

True, I was wet.

But, it is what it is and I can’t do anything about it!

“Weather isn’t good or bad, it is your attitude that needs to change!” 

Life is full of challenges. Our job is to work on our middos (character traits) and have a positive attitude towards life. 

At least if we can’t reach the positive attitude, we should at least aim for neutral.

As long as it is not negative. 

Negativity only causes more problems and everything goes downhill. 

Negative thoughts make it seem that the game of “life” is rigged. 

We constantly need to remind ourselves:
Stay positive.
Have fun.
Do good.

Be a good person. A good spouse. A good parent.

Remember, “this, too, shall pass”.

Everything passes. The good, the bad and the ugly. 

Life is fleeting and we need to hold onto the good.
But, we should remember, that the bad will pass too!
