I'm a positive person through and through. I can and will find that one glimmer of good in any situation. I feel like even the bad situations hold great lessons for us. I know, it's annoying even to me.
However, I was raised with a firm belief in Murphy's Law...anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Counterproductive to my positivity...no? For a long time I've gone the route of "expect the worst, hope for the best" I feel it's a nice mix of Murphy and positivity. I'm not sure if I should call it positive with a side of realistic or what.
My Murphy's law comes with a bit of superstition though. Mention how well things are going and you are just asking for something to go wrong. Don't mention how perfect traffic is, because that's when traffic slows down to a crawl. I know it's not true Murphy, but they seem to go hand in hand.
Lately, I've been really trying to put the positivity out there to the universe. And actually I feel that the good opportunities that have come up with my business are due to that positivity.
For so many years, I've just kept quiet about opportunities that have come up. Telling a few people about it, just so my head doesn't explode. It's that Murphy's law superstition that keeps me quiet. Like if I talk about it too much, it won't happen. However, I don't know that keeping it quiet and to myself really works either. There's that part of me that definitely feels like putting it out to the universe really helps. I feel like other people's good thoughts, energy and prayers really help.
What is your approach? Do you sit on that little opportunity of an egg and wait to tell people about it until it hatches. Or do you get excited about the opportunity and let everyone know right away?
