Life has it’s ups and downs. We all get beaten down and pushed aside by life at times. The key though is to persevere. Push through the tough times and keep moving forward. We don’t have to move at a “normal” pace. In fact, the speed in which we continue to move forward doesn’t matter, so long as we just keep moving forward. Once we stop moving forward, we become complacent and stop growing, learning and becoming the best we can be. Move forward and ignore the speed at which you do.
Since this is the 3rd Edition of the Carnival of Positive Thinking, I included a blurb about what the carnival is all about:
I read a ton of great positive thinking posts from all over the blogosphere. I’ve decided to start up a new carnival on this site for you to find these great posts. In the beginning, I’ll be adding a bunch of posts I find since a newer carnival will have few entries. To be part of this carnival, you can click on this link to submit your posts. Here are the guidelines:
- Posts should be recent (within the past two weeks)
- Posts should be on one of the following topics: positive thinking, stress, emotions (anger, social anxiety, etc.), self improvement, success, goals
- If you are included in the post, I ask that you tweet/share and link back to the post so that others will easily find the carnival
I will post the carnival every Saturday morning. As the carnivals grows in popularity, I will seek others to host, but for now, I will be doing the hosting.
Kael presents Become The Deep Lake posted at Growth Guided saying: Surrounded by stressors throughout the day you come to a breaking point. Reacting to one situation after another has left you empty, fatigued and filled with frustration. The storm of life is brewing all around you it seems. If only there was a shut off value, a release from these stressful people and situations.
Jo presents Ditch The Idea of Work Life Balance posted at Jo Casey saying: Ahh, Work Life Balance. You are a conundrum. For years now, many of us have struggled to find the elusive creature that is ‘Work-life balance’.
Erik Matlock presents The Smartest Guy in the Room posted at Becoming a Better Man saying: I heard a line in a movie recently that jumped out at me. It was a reference to magicians and their use of illusions. Simple statement. “Always be the smartest guy in the room.”
Britt presents Change Your Style, Change Your Life posted at In Pursuit of Happiness saying: I believe that an essential part of being happier is learning to love and accept yourself for exactly who you are. I don’t believe happiness is a renovation project, but rather a practice in embracing what is.
Stephen presents How Schools Train Us to Fail in The Real World posted at Deep Existence saying: The modern American school system does not encompass or define learning, it is a dominant subset of it. Do you want to know why I dislike school? Homework, sure, but more important than that are these four ways that school trains us to fail in “the real world.”
Kenneth Lange presents Innovate Like Steve Jobs posted at Kenneth Lange saying After an ugly political infight at Apple in 1985, Steve Jobs found himself humiliated and kicked out of the company he had co-founded and suddenly had to think what he then wanted to do with the rest of his life.
Kaitlyn Johnson presents 6 Strategies for Becoming a Morning Person posted at Newborn Care saying: You’ve heard it before, even to the point of it becoming annoying. It’s something bears repeating though, because it’s got a lot of wisdom: “The early bird catches the worm.”
