The holidays are over and it’s back to work or business for most of us. Sometimes it can be hard to feel excited and motivated about going back to work after enjoying time off. Here are some tips to make every day a great day for anyone headed back to work this week.

What makes the difference between having a good day or a GREAT day? It’s a 3 letter word! Y-O-U! YOU choose each day whether you will have a bad day, a good day or a GREAT day! It’s not what happens to us in life, but how we react to what happens to us that makes all the difference!

Don’t let the little thorns turn into big spears. Stop wasting precious time on things that don’t matter in the end.

Realize that failure isn’t falling down, it’s when you fall down and refuse to get back up again! Always remember to Fall Down 7 Times, but get up 8, 9, 10….

Today, do something you didn’t think you could do, that causes you to stretch yourself and get out of your comfort zone. Nothing worth having in life comes without hard work!

Go out of your way to be kind to people, especially those who are not so kind to you. You never know what they might be going through and your smile or kind word might change whether their day is bad, good or GREAT too!

Turn the other cheek even when it hurts to do so. Do not let negative people steal your joy! Be sure to show appreciation to all those who have made a difference in your life.

Give & don’t expect anything in return. Spread excitement and passion; shed excuses and complaints.

Focus on helping others. Forget about yesterday, don’t worry about tomorrow! Today go out there and create a GREAT day where ever you are!
