Stinking thinking

I don't know how many of you may have read the book, "The Secret." I can save you a couple of bucks. It basically says that what you say is what you will get. Where your head is ends up being where you will go. Of course there is more to all of this but that is the gist of the story of "The Secret."

Using that theory if you ignore that the biggest state in the United States is now bankrupt then everything is ok. Using that theory if you just keep saying and thinking that the economy is ok then it is ok.

What a marvelous idea.

Put on a happy face and magically your house payment will be made each month. Keep saying that your car payment is made and magically you look at your bank statement and there it is, a paid car payment.

If only this was all true. I do agree that if you think bad thoughts bad karma will follow but that is just plain stinking thinking to quote my old friend Zig Ziglar. He also suggests a regular, "Check up from the neck up."

I like the one day at a time attitude. Each day when I get up I keep in mind that I have an entire new day to either be productive or wallow in pity. To have a pity party. Most days I am productive.
