Today, I attended a wonderful presentation called “Branding Beyond Sex: Five Things Every Woman Must Do to Thrive in Her Professional Life” by a wonderful woman and friend, Jamila Meesarapu Randall. I won’t go into the five things but the quote that really stayed with me was “Bombard yourself with positivity.”
She went on to state that we are constantly surrounded by negativity: bad experiences, natural disasters, stress, etc. And in order to counteract it, we have to “bombard” ourselves with positivity. I LOVE that word bombard; it speaks to the rather extreme level that we must go to to make sure that we stay focused on and thinking about the positive things in our day-to-day lives. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
So, what are you going to do in order to “bombard” yourself: read something inspirational; pray and meditate; send an encouraging email; call up a positive friend; write a blog post? Let me know in the comments below.
Oh! You can check out Jamila’s blog, here.
