Starting the Day Do you know that the words you use are not only a reflection of your attitudes, but that the words you choose can also create an attitude? Today, let's take that thought a little further. Research has proven that human beings think with words. Those words create pictures in our minds, and because of past experiences and personal histories emotion (or emotions) automatically get attached to those pictures. This happens regardless of each individual's native language, and it is the words that are the initial trigger. As an example, Seattle basketball legend Lenny Wilkens recently was asked what had served him well over the years. He replied, "I wake up in the morning and say, 'Good morning, God,' rather than, 'Good God, it's morning.'" How many of us fall back on the second comment - or something similar - and then find we have to drag ourselves out of bed, stand in the shower trying to convince ourselves we want to get up, and then find we "fight" traffic all the way to work. All the while, we are pushing back against the "have to" of starting our day. This "have to" attitude has a good chance of coloring the rest of the day. How much better would life be if we started each day with a little appreciation for yet another opportunity to contribute to the betterment of the world - even in the smallest manner? A simple, heartfelt smile to the folks on the bus becomes a nearly effortless "pass along," a positive contagion for the rest of the day. Ask yourself, how did I start my day today? If it did, indeed, color the rest of today, then ask yourself, how do I want to start the day tomorrow? The Pacific Institute thepacificinstitute.com

Missing What Is Right in Front of You Do you know what Scotomas are? Everyone has them and they can keep you from seeing the opportunities all around you. So what exactly is a "Scotoma?" A scotoma is what doctors call the defect that blocks sight in one part of our visual field. It is also a term we use to describe our occasional failure to see what is right in front of us because we build our own Scotoma, a mental blind spot, to it. You see for the most part, we see what we expect to see or what we look for. Often, we do not see what is really there. What we expect to see is determined by our beliefs about reality. If we believe the world is a hostile, unfriendly place, we will see evidence to support that belief everywhere we look. But if we believe people are basically good and that the world is a supportive, friendly place, that is what we will see and experience. Now, our beliefs are mostly a matter of how we have been conditioned since birth. But once we become adults, it is possible to become aware of our conditioning, our belief systems, and even our Scotomas. We can choose to expand our consciousness, remove our blind spots, and adopt beliefs that will help us grow instead of clinging to expectations and attitudes that keep us suspicious and small. By the simple act of making this choice, we actually start the wheels of a better future turning. And, by the daily affirmation of goals that support our commitment, we become top-notch Scotoma Busters - and that is when we really start to grow! The Pacific Institute thepacificinstitute.com
