Time for an Attitude Adjustment
Studying for the bar exam was stressful but so is waiting for results. Ohio results post on Friday and this last week is the worst. You can only remember your perceived mistakes and friends and family who dare have faith in your abilities just get on your nerves. However, you don’t have to completely miserable. You can make the choice to adjust your attitude and make the best of it. Try this 7-day positive attitude challenge:
Day One: Make a list of five things in your life that you are thankful for.
Day Two: Smile at everyone you meet. No exceptions.
Day Three: Reach out to one person in your life and express gratitude.
Day Four: Choose an activity that makes you truly happy and spend at least thirty minutes doing it.
Day Five: Spend at least fifteen minutes outside. At one time (not two minutes walking from your car to the office, five minutes running across the street for lunch).
Day Six: No complaining. Go the entire day without a single complaint.
Day Seven: Look in the mirror and give yourself an old school Daily Affirmation talk, Michael Jordan style.
You’re good enough. You’re smart enough. And gosh darn it, people like you.
