Thanks for writing this around me Ann! :) I struggle to see the "value" im my own personality and so i try to keep some kind of business related message in there... but the more i do it, the more I realise I get the better reponses when im just being me, talking about being optimistic and looking forward to the week... thanks for watching as ever... oh and if people want to see some ones gone by here's a link to the playlist which features most of them I have done - http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=434B0712BDBC5318
Ann, you are right about hope. Without it humanity just withers and dies. Hope is found under even the most adverse of circumstnaces. It's what keeps us all going. And I think that sometimes we rely on others to sustain our hope more than we realize. Thank goodness for Phil and people like him who help to refill our reservoirs of inner resourcefulness and resolution.
Paul, you reminded of a previous post about Power and Influence and how we can empower ourselves to deal with things beyond our control http://annhawkins.com/2011/01/we-are-never-powerless/
Hi Ann I couldn't agree more. I too love and look forward to Phil's Optimistic Monday videos and often find myself smiling, nodding in agreement and even laughing out loud! For me, Phil's videos are a timely reminder that even if got out of bed the wrong side that morning or I have a busy week ahead and I don't know how I'm going to get through it all, Monday is the start of a brand new week and should be greeted with copious amounts of optimism! More hope, more optimism, more laughter please - we all need people like Phil to remind us that things are not as bad as we imagine they are and truly, approaching the week with optimism in our hearts is the way to approach all things in life.
