Deciding to be Fantastic

In last week’s Delivering Marketing Joy, Episode 100, Seth Godin makes the statement, “Deciding to be Fantastic!” This concept opens up additional notions of how we control our moods – don’t let the trials of today keep you from the joys of tomorrow!


Have you ever had that day where nothing seemed to be going your way? Was everything completely out of your control? It’s true that many times things might slip through our fingers, which can make things very frustrating. There are also times where we can’t put a positive spin on our circumstances, such as a death in the family.



But most of the time we do have a choice, we can look at our circumstances from two different perspectives. First, we can decide that there is no positive way to look at this incident. Or conversely, we can ask ourselves “What can I take away from this issue?” You may decide that you can choose to learn and never make that mistake again. Also, sometimes taking a break before a second look might allow you to see a different outcome or solution. So you do have the decision to be fantastic! Your attitude and outlook are completely in your control; don’t let anyone else make you think any differently.


Positive people lead healthier and happier lives. Stress is a silent killer, although it is in all of our lives we can counteract it with positive thinking. Every little bit helps, you will notice that changing your mindset becomes easier the longer you practice it.
