Do you hang out with ‘can’t do’, ‘no way’ and ‘I’ll never be good at anything’ sort of people? BEWARE, because we become like the people we associate with! Then you’ll constantly be discouraged, on a downer and depressed. Instead, surround yourself with positive people those who can inspire and motivate you so you can, should, and do take action.
Avoid negative people and don’t feel guilty about it – period!
Maybe you have a friend who needs to challenge everything you say – avoid them!
Avoid negative people at work.Don’t pick up the phone or answer the door if a certain negative individual is calling or coming by.(See above cartoon!)
Turn the television off during news briefs that focus on what’s wrong in your community or even the world. Negative news travels fast – very fast!(Do you think all this recession would be as bad if it wasn’t for the press/media going on about it all the time?)
Avoid reading newspapers, books or magazines that may portray or write a story on negative people.
Don’t get sucked into negative conversations.
Here’s some proactive steps you can take to align ourselves with positive people: You could also visit this blog everyday!
Visit other online forums and get involved with positive discussions.
Go to local community events, clubs or groups.
Organize a positive mentoring group.
Listen to upbeat music, instead of talk show radio programs.
In negative conversations change the subject to something positive so that you don’t get sucked in.
Find other avenues of socializing as opposed to drinking in bars, such as joining clubs, going for walks in the park or opting for a nice dinner out on the town instead. (With exception to bars like this…)
REASON # 9 – You worry more about job security,
than how happy you are.
Job security is all in your mind.
How do you know that the company you work for will be around
in a year’s time, let alone ten year’s time? If you dread
waking up on a Monday morning…
– Find a different job, or
– Find a way to supplement your income so that you can leave
and do what you would really love to do.
I went against my wife and family and quit my job, despite
having no savings. I quit to do this. It’s what I want to do
with my life. Period.
Two years ago, I was counting the years to I retired at 60
with a full two-thirds pension. So what changed?
I changed…because the world won’t.
I decided that I couldn’t be unhappy for 40+ hours a week
…I decided that I wanted to see my family grow up…I
decided that I wanted to help my wife more with our
I decided to do what I wanted to do…and not what society
expects me to do. That’s why I wrote my eBook –
“The Science of Success”
I had a good career…with a decent salary. But I realised
that we are here to enjoy life…and not to struggle with
life. I have seen enough miserable people who work 70+
hours a week and have a fantastic salary…yet their kids
hardly know them.
It’s your life…and you only get one shot at it.
So you might as well enjoy it!
I hope that this part of the report has shown you
that there are more ways to be a success, other than what
can be measured in monetary terms.
I started drawing this cartoon up last week – then got sidetracked with urgent pressure jobs, so it’s probably lost a bit of it’s effect now that the show is over. But it still has a motivational message underneath it – YOU SHOULD NEVER GIVE IN!
Moral: “Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the
world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else
would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength.”
(Even Simon Cowell gets it wrong sometimes!)
Why keep a dog and bark yourself? Consider getting your “bark” from cartoon motivators. I’ve been drawing cartoons for two and a half decades – more if you include time spent in school and scribbling on desks and walls! God, am I ever glad I never got caught.
With all this experience behind my work, I could motivate a lion to go vegan!
And don’t worry about my schedule; I’m lightning fast with writing wit, and creating illustrations that will inspire on the spot.
You also don’t have to be concerned that maybe my style and taste might not mesh with yours. I can mould myself to anything you like, and present you with cartoons that are appropriate for viewing by all ages.

Here’s Part 5 of my A-Z of Positive Thinking!
Here’s a few of my fav’ ENTHUSIASM quotes:
“Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation, and a pinch of creativity.”
“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.”
The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex, overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one! Mark Twain- Celebrated American author and humorist
STOMP THOSE ANTS!
Psychiatrist Daniel G. Amen has named the limiting thoughts we hear in our
head ANTs – Automatic Negative Thoughts. And just like real ants at a picnic, your ANTS can ruin your experience of life. Dr.Amen recommends that you learn to STOMP the ANTs. First you have to become aware of them; next you have to shake them off and stomp them by challenging them. Finally you have to replace them with more positive and affirming thoughts!
So, STOMP your ANTs before it’s too late!
Taken from a book by Jack Canfield – The Success Principles, how to get from where you are to where you want to be!
Here’s part 4 of my A-Z of Positive Thinking images series. (I redrew this and coloured it up a few years later – so you might have seen it before!)
And a few of my other favourite Determination quotes:
“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.” Gail Devers
“We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference, and that a small group of determined people can change the course of history.” Sonia Johnson
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
I came across this proverb and immediately had this idea come to mind…
An old proverb epitomizes the wait-and-see mentality of many people: “Man who stand on top of mountain with mouth open wait long time for roast turkey to fly in!”
So the point here is TAKE ACTION – no matter how small, as long it is in the direction you want to go!
