Boogie Man! Shrink, then disappear!

What to do when times feel bleak? When you think that things can’t get any worse? When you fear what’s next and you become overwhelmed? Hey, have a laugh; don’t take yourself and your problem so seriously; It happens to us all. Do this instead: Breathe deep (blow out those toxins!). Don’t think too hard! Move! Yeah, for real: Breathe, don’t think, move!

Dale Carnegie wrote: Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. Activity and positivity dance hand-in-hand. The more active we are, the better our attitude. The less active, the worse…and the boogie man gets huge!

Positive attitude with no action is called wishing and hoping. Activity with a bad attitude spreads “the goo”—that negative, sticky stuff that gets us down, keeps us there, and gets on those around us.

Activity creates: Belief, satisfaction, gratitude. Inactivity produces: Doubt, fear, envy. Activity creates: Confidence, energy, generosity. Inactivity produces: Laziness, skepticism, waste. Activity creates good habits. Inactivity creates bad habits. 

To move or not to move, that is the question! How we choose to act, or react, or not—is on us, it’s our decision to make. Nobody forces me, but me. The better choice, when times look bleak: Act, get busy, do something! Why? Because the Boogie Man shrinks, then disappears!
