Positive Words And A Bloodhound
I want to leave you today with some positive words when you say you cannot do something that you may just believe you cannot when deep down, you know you can.

Negatives First. Realize Em and Positive Words Come
I would like to give you a warning first on this one. You may find humor in this and start laughing uncontrollably. Ok, probably not, but do not say that I did not warn you.
This is a story that I have heard and I don’t remember exactly how it goes, but I do remember the finer points of this story. The positive words that come out of this story are the most important thing that can come out of reading this post.
The first time that I heard this story, it led me to give up smoking cigarettes, perhaps one of the more difficult things to give up.
So here is the negative that led me to my positive words.
A traveling salesman is on the road visiting businesses across the country selling business equipment to shop owners. He is an eager individual and makes it a point to go into every business in any given area. So he stops at a general store in the middle of nowhere.
As the eager chap walks into the store, he looks towards a man sitting at the counter when out of the background a big moan comes out of the mouth of an old bloodhound laying in the corner.
“Rawr, rawr, rawr”, the dog whines and moans in distress, “rawr, rawr, rawr.”
Curiously, the salesman asks the owner of the general store, “what is wrong with your dog?”
The store owner relies…
Oh, that there is Old Blue… Old Blue comes to work with me every single day and lays down in the same spot every day. There is however, a rusty nail sticking up out of the floor just enough to dig into him to annoy him. It is not sticking out enough to make him move, the poor thing, but it is enough to make him moan all day.
So my question to you is, “are you old blue?” I paid for the information that told me this story. I paid to learn that I was not uncomfortable enough to be motivated to act.
So here are some positive words to hopefully inspire you to stop being comfortable.
Ok, maybe you say you are uncomfortable. Sure, maybe you fear the pain that comes with quitting smoking, losing weight, changing your habits, talking to more people to build your business if you are network marketer or more.
By being comfortable, I mean that you are comfortable in misery.
Only you can decide how uncomfortable you are. Do you accept your situation like Old Blue or do you realize that it is time to get up and move. If you say that you will do something sometime in the future, you may as well say never. I said sometime for a lot of years and what did it get me? It took me the time spent until I listened to positive words on audio to quit smoking.
