“…This is not a difficult process; though it is a bit more involved than being a neighborhood organizer….”

We can focus on the Negative, or the Positive; it’s a CHOICE.  God gave us the gift of “freedom of choice,” giving us the right to decide on the Negative or the Positive.  I know little about the nuances of negative thoughts.  I am wired such that I think positive 99% of the time.  When I do think negative, it is almost always regarding the “realities” of life; things to do with health, etc.  I consider myself, basically, an athlete, whose sport is the entrepreneurship of business.  I’m always in training for the next deal.  I go into the process with no intention of losing; develop a plan of action (POA), refine my technique, and move forward, NEVER taking NO for an answer.  This is not a difficult process; though it is a bit more involved than being a neighborhood organizer.  To succeed in my sport takes years of training, mentoring, risk taking, self-discipline, and lastly, it takes money.   To take a single moment away from the positive is tantamount to a race-car driver taking his eye off the wheel, momentarily, risking the entire race, if not his life.   While I don’t know much about focusing on “negatives;” what I do know is that it’s a CHOICE; typically made from a position of weakness.  If, in any business, there’s a “negative person,” you best get rid of them.  In my time at the wheel, I’ve only gotten rid of a very small number of negative people, and the reason is; I focus on “saving” the negative person; using the rule of two negatives make a positive.  Galatians 5:19-21 – Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.   Blessings…cjlb…2/18/14
