THIS MONTH:
MONDAY GETS CONNECTED

In the 1870’s, when Alexander Graham Bell invented the first telephone, the world changed forever… we were given the ability to connect like never before. Then came computers, cell phones, the Internet, email, and now smart phones. And, in a fairly short amount of time, Alexander Graham Bell’s earth-shattering invention has almost become obsolete. Today, you might be feeling that the world is over-connected; but, if that’s the case, then why do so many people still feel so alone, isolated, and completely dis-connected? We believe it’s because the nature of our connectedness has changed. We’ve lost focus on creating a genuine connection with real “friends.” Instead, we mass share information that really doesn’t matter and tends to be more destructive than constructive. Conversations are rarely face-to-face exchanges anymore… and definitely not very one-to-one. Instead it’s easier to just email, text, or tweet. Who wants to talk anymore? Well, we do. It’s time to talk. It’s time for some real, genuine, positive connection. Being connected matters.

THIS MONTH:
MONDAY GETS POSITIVE

The human race does two things really well – we are hard on each other and we are hard on ourselves. If there is good news, we tell a few people. If there is bad news, we tell the world. We throw negative comments out as though they are free of consequences, we hide behind the mask of social media while we bully one another and deliver cheap shots, and we look at ourselves in the mirror and don’t like what we see. Even further… why is it that good and positive stories only gets three minutes of news coverage? Why is it so difficult for us to receive a compliment? This is not the way it is supposed to be. And, instead of continuing to focus on the negative right here in this copy, it is time to flip the script. This month, it is time to get positive. You have so much to be grateful for… in the smallest and largest of ways. You matter and you have the ability to literally change one person, a room, or the world by simply having a positive attitude and saying positive things to yourself and other people. So, chin up… smile… and be that person that everyone wants to be around. Life is awesome. Being positive matters.
