Yes, this is correct. Sunny Days are here to stay, that is, if
you want them to be. What's that mean? Well, let me explain
it this way.
How do you feel when it's a "sunny day" outside? When you
first awake and the sun is shining in your window doesn't that
perk you up a bit? Now I realize there are days when you are
not feeling well, maybe there's been a serious problem you
are facing or there are any number of things that nay not be
pleasant in your life. But overall with all those things
happening to you doesn't a "sunny day" help you to feel at
least somewhat better about life? Don't you feel much
better then when it's a cloudy and rainy day outside?
I started using this phrase "have a sunny day" many years
ago in my greeting to people. It's even at the end of my
voice mail message. I'll never forget the day when I was
a salesmen and received a call on my voice mail from
one of my customers to call him. When I finally called him
back the first thing he said to me was, "Sonny are you
crazy it's not a "sunny day" here it's pouring down rain
outside". I said , "I know it is but you missed my point, you
can have a "sunny day anytime you want because a
"sunny day" starts in the mind". "Oh, he said, I never
thought of it that way" Many times over the years that
voice mail message always gets comments.
One of my favorite motivational speakers, Jim Rohn,
says you have got to decide on what your philosophy is
about your life. You've got to decide what excites you
about life. You've got to take responsibility for what
happens in your life. You shouldn't just "fit in" to
someone else's plan, design one of your own. He says
you have to live a disciplined life and stay disciplined
so you can get what you want. He goes on to say, It's
true, we suffer one of two things. Either the pain of
discipline or the pain of regret. You've got to choose
discipline versus regret because discipline weighs
ounces and regret weighs tons.
I believe that makes things rather clear in my mind. How
about you? Whatever you want in your life you must
discipline yourself enough to get it no matter what it
takes. Now of course that means without harm to
another person. Now to add to this, Robert Stuberg,
of Success .com says "your thoughts control your life,
your life is not controlled by random events, UNLESS
you want them to be". " You are NOT a victim of others
actions UNLESS you THINK you are" He goes on to say,
"if you don't like something in your life, you have the
POWER to change it" .... if you desire something in your
life, it's in your POWER to change it" Then he
emphasizes, "Change Your Thoughts And You Will
Change Your Life"
When you get right down to it, we all know life can be very
challenging at times, life can deliver cruel punches, life
can deal us some big problems sometimes. Usually our
only defense is to build up a strong positive attitude to
ward off these situations in our lives. We just need to get
more "tough skinned".
My wife and I live in a manufactured home community in
Florida six months out of the year and we have made
many new friends. One of those, however, is one of the
most remarkable ones we have ever met. Angie is just
amazing. Attractive, fun -loving, usually has a big smile.
But Angie has a big and unusual health problem. I've
never understood all the details of her illness but it was
caused many years ago when she was diagnosed with
polio. And it was before they had a cure for it.
Over the years it's affected her whole body. She walks
with a cane. One leg is shorter than the other one.
One foot is smaller than the other foot. It's painful for
her to walk, too. Consequently she's on very strong
medication which has to be changed periodically
because it loses it's effectiveness. Just recently she
showed up at the weekly bingo with velcro braises on
both arms. Despite all this she's a real "cut up"
whenever you are around her. At home her husband
says she really goes through some challenging times
but she "bounces back" eventually. He says he don't
know how she handles all the pain. He says she's
I don't know about you but when I have some
difficulties to face in my life I try to think just how
fortunate I am to be fairly healthy. If you are not quite
as fortunate as I I'm sure there is always someone
else you know of that is worse off. Anyway remember
what Jim Rohn And Robert Stuberg say and begin to
do the necessary things to have a "sunny day" in your
life everyday. Good Luck!
