today's the day!

Did you wake up this morning and tell yourself that something wonderful is going to happen today? Perhaps your mind went to the exact opposite place and your first thoughts were of some difficulty or dreaded task you have to face. Either way, at the end of the day you were probably right. 

Your early morning thoughts set the tone for your whole day.  If you expect something great to happen you’re likely going to find that yes indeed, something happened today that brought you a big smile.  So why not put the odds in your favor? One of the worst things we do is to set ourselves up for failure in this way. We should approach each day as the gift that it is and appreciate the opportunities that each day brings. Don’t worry about having control, don’t worry about making mistakes. Don’t doubt yourself, don’t doubt your dreams and abilities, don’t hesitate. Realize that waiting around for something great to fall into your lap is a lot less effective than taking some initiative. If you do nothing to advance yourself or to move towards making your dream a reality, then you’re practically guaranteed that nothing is exactly what you’re going to get. 

So take a leap. Create your own opportunities and best chances. Expect the best and tell yourself that today, something wonderful is going to happen!

Along those same lines, they've done a study where if you think or someone tells you that you got a good night's sleep, even if you didn't, you'll function better than if you think you got a bad night's sleep, even if it's the same.
