The Power of And

Attitude determines almost everything.

Rosamund Zander writes about being in Florida on vacation. It was raining. She says that she could have thought “it is raining, but I cannot go to the beach.” Or, she could have thought, “it is raining, and I can now use this time to practice cooking a new recipe.” Check out The Art of Possibility: Transforming Professional and Personal Life that she wrote and published with her husband Benjamin Zander.

It is all a matter of attitude. I can accept defeat. Fail to see the possibilities. Sit in my despair.

I can say and to open the way for an alternate experience. I can learn something new. Meet new people. Experience the place I’m in.

An obstacle appears as if from nowhere. It threatens delay or defeat in my project for the business or organization. I can say, I can’t do this now, and I can choose to do that.

Open up possibilities for the working of the spirit to open you to alternative experiences.
