This message was sent to me by one of our members on Givnology.
I thought it to be a nice topic to share:


>>John is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good
>>mood and always has something positive to say. When someone
>>would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, "If I were any better,
>>would be twins!"
>>
>>He was a natural motivator.
>>
>>If an employee was having a bad day, John was there telling the
>>employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.
>>
>>Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up and
>>asked him, "I don't get it!
>>
>>You can't be a positive person all of the time. How do you do
>>it?"
>>
>>He replied, "Each morning I wake up and say to myself, you have
>>two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or ... you
>>can choose to be in a bad mood.
>>
>>I choose to be in a good mood."
>>
>>Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim
>>or...I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it.
>>
>>Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to
>>accept their complaining or... I can point out the positive side of
>>life.
>>I choose the positive side of life.
>>
>>"Yeah, right, it's not that easy," I protested.
>>
>>"Yes, it is," he said. "Life is all about choices. When you cut
>>away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to
>>situations.
>>You choose how people affect your mood.
>>
>>You choose e to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line:
>>It's your choice how you live your life."
>>
>>I reflected on what he said. Soon hereafter, I left the Tower
>> Industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often
>>thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of
>>reacting to it.
>>
>>Several years later, I heard that he was involved in a serious
>>accident, falling some 60 feet from a communications tower.
>>
>>After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, he was
>>released from the hospital with rods placed in his back.
>>
>>I saw him about six months after the accident.
When I asked him how he was, he replied, "If I were any better,
I'd be twins.
>>Wanna see my scars?"
>>
>>I declined to see his wounds, but I did ask him what had gone
>>through his mind as the accident took place.
>>
>>"The first thing that went through my
>>mind was the well-being of my
>>soon-to-be born daughter," he replied. "Then, as I lay on the
>>ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to
>>live or I could choose to die. I chose to live"
>>
>>"Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?" I asked.
>>
>>He continued, "..the paramedics were great.
>>
>>They kept telling me I was going to be fine.But when they
>>wheeled me into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the
>>doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read
>>'he's a dead man'. I knew I needed to take action."
>>
>>"What did you do?" I asked.
>>
>>"Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me,"
>>said John. "She asked if I was allergic to anything. 'Yes, I
>>replied.'
>>The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply.
>>I took a deep breath and yelled,
>>'Gravity'."
>>
>>Over their laughter, I told them, "I am choosing to live.
>>Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead."
>>
>>He lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because
>>of his amazing attitude... I learned from him that every day we
>>have the choice to live fully.
>>
>>
>>Attitude, after all, is everything.
>>
>>Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry
>>about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew
>>6:34.
>>
>>After all today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.
You have two choices now:
