A positive mental attitude
I wrote the following message exactly 1 year ago today. Since then, PMA has led me and my partners all the way here to this point. We have at the same time, worked VERY hard to get ourselves here. This week we have an important meeting, which we hope will help us launch g2g onto the streets of America...and if we do it, it will certainly be due to our ability to focus on the positive.
One of the most important lessons to learn early in life is about the clear and definite benefits gained from living life with a positive mental attitude (PMA.) There are always only two ways to consider and deal with any situation, and that is of course, positively or negatively. Karma plays its hand in life's situations and its consequences as well...as what you give out you will always get back...sooner or later and usually not in any way you expected it to return.
After committing to writing this journal while we work on launching green2go restaurants, I have noticed how much negativity is out 'there' today as I research the internet for general topics of concern. People are angry and lashing out. Times are tough and the negativity only makes it seem tougher. Focused on our food supply I also find myself enveloped by very bad news...from the state of our national health at large to how the food we are eating is essentially killing us and our planet at the same time.
Despite all this negativity I have fortunately been able to discover and focus on all the positive work taking hold today, which will in due course, affect our future in a way we desperately need. A lot of good is going on. If we all take the time to develop some PMA, much more will get done, and in this way, it will be done harmoniously which can only bring great, positive, far reaching change.
Being truly positive is a state of mind that is self induced. You actually have to work at dedicating yourself to thinking in this way. PMA is a philosophy for life. If you can live the essence of it everyday, you will live a much happier, less stressed, more prosperous way and things you need to accomplish what you want, will come much easier.
