A man goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having a nightmare; the man wakes him and asks his son if he is okay. The son replies he is scared because he dreamed that Aunt Lisa had died. The father assures the son that Aunt Lisa is fine and sends him to bed. The next day, Aunt Lisa dies. One week later, the man again goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having another nightmare; the man again wakes his son. The son this time says that he had dreamed that his grandfather had died. The father assures the son that his grandfather is fine and sends him to bed. The next day, the grandfather dies. One week later, the man again goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having another nightmare; the man again wakes his son. The son this time says that he had dreamed that dad had died. The father assures the son that he is okay and sends the boy to bed. The man goes to bed but cannot sleep because he is so terrified. The next day, the man is scared for his life -- he is sure he's going to die. After dressing he drives very cautiously to work. He doesn't eat lunch because he is scared of choking. He avoids everyone because he's sure he will somehow be killed. He jumps at every noise and hides for most of the day under his desk. Upon walking in his front door at the end of the day, he see his wife. "Good God, Dear," he proclaims, "I've just had the worst day of my entire life!" She responds, "You think your day was bad, the UPS man dropped dead on the doorstep this morning."

Thirteen percent of adults -- mostly men -- have done this at least once.

“Today is going to be a great day.”
A good life begins right now with a choice. It’s going to be fun, finger-snapping kind of day if you want it to be. Choose wisely and indulge in the goodness.
“I’m looking forward to it.”
William James once said, “Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.” Everything you do is only as big as you are, and you grow by taking action and working hard. But even more importantly, remember that hard work is only ‘hard to do’ only when it has no meaning to you. Find work that means something to you, or connect your work to a goal that has meaning, and then persist at it. Read The Success Principles.
“I’ll give it another try.”
Forget failure, or any other outcome whatsoever. If you try something -- to improve yourself, to eliminate debt, to lose weight, to make a relationship work, to make the world a better place, etc. -- you have already achieved something brilliant regardless of the end result. Trying is always enough. If things don’t work out the way you had hoped, hold your head up and be proud that you gave it your best shot. Then try again.
Life is a choir made up of many voices, including your own. Join in and sing your part. Let the harmony ring. It may sound silly to you now, but sometimes all you need in life is for someone to sing beside you.
Gratitude leads to greatness. It can literally turn what we have into more than enough, jobs into joy, chaos into order, uncertainty into clarity, and bring peace to an otherwise chaotic day.
How you respond to life’s little tragedies is what shapes your character. Crap happens sometimes, you’ve got to deal with it and move on. Don’t hide from it. When the crap hits the fan, as it sometimes will, stop and say it out loud: “I’m OK.”
