There aren’t many more vulnerable times then when you’re in a doctor’s office wearing a ‘gown’. Especially for a mature gentleman (my wife might say that’s an oxymoron) with a couple of young ladies sitting in the room taking notes while we discuss ‘things’.
It was at that moment I thought what a great time to practice. What a great time to turn this situation from a negative to a positive.
And then, as I was about to start saying my high five, my throat caught a bit as my doctor pulled out a sizeable needle.
“Where you puttin’ that needle, Dude?” I blurted out nervously.
Needless to say, instead of practicing, I got my ass kicked and forgot all about conditioning my mind to be positive.
It was a ‘no big deal’ visit to the doctor that I turned into a “Why Me Pity Party”.
After getting home and licking my wounds, I realized how easy it is to let detrimental thoughts swim freely through my mind. By 5:00 it was pretty clear I had let those harmful thoughts develop into a negative vibe, which wrapped around me like a strong body odor. You know what I mean, you can’t smell it on yourself, but others do.
Been there, done that. Twenty years ago I let those injurious types of thoughts consume me. Paralyze me. Victimize me.
Doesn’t take long to go from “Singing in the Rain” to just plain rain.
Today I know better, so I summed up the situation quickly and realized what was needed. An emergency wingman session.
Not just one minute.
Ten Minutes. Whaaaaaaa?
Oh yeah. Ten minutes of Wingman practices.
Who da man now?
What a valuable 10 minutes it was.
For as I clapped and laughed, yelled out my high five and gave thanks to everything I saw, that stench slid off me like an Irish Spring commercial.
And I learned a powerful lesson.
Nothing can keep me down if I don’t let it.
That’s right, I’m in control of me.
Tomorrow, on my radio show, ‘Condition Your Mind to be Positive” I will do the work for you.
I will demonstrate 5 minutes of conditioning my mind to be positive so you can feel the Vibe.

Let my upbeat and confident vibration help you to help yourself. You’ll be amazed at the energy you can generate with a smile and a few positive words.
Also… Great news. I have a new office with a small group room and want to start it off with some positivity training.
Join me for my new “Conditioning Your Mind to be Positive” Workshop.
You will feel that spark of positive energy that flows within each of us, and understand how to keep it rolling.
Equally important, we will each set a goal and leave with a blueprint to achieve it.
