Personal growth comes from taking responsibility for your moods, attitudes, and actions. Managing your own life’s mood is the best use of your energy. For example, want a job with our health team? Then, as a new hire you need to exhibit a “good mood” of being flexible (not rigid), action focused (not passive), optimistic (not pessimistic), and have a sense of inner-calm (not a drama tornado). Can you keep your cool during raging mood storms? I know you can, through steady practice.
PUTTING YOURSELF IN A HOPEFUL MOOD
Can you choose your mood? (More than you think you can.) In what mood do you strive to put yourself to start your day? (You greet the day glad to have another chance to love and learn and excel.) Your mood infuses YOU and OTHERS with hopefulness or helplessness.
