Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: The Mind Tattoo

Realize that we are a sum total of who we think we are!  Dr. Norman Vincent Peale stated: ‘‘If you think in negative terms, you will get negative results. Yet if you think in positive terms, you will get positive results.’’ His book, The Power of Positive Thinking, was one of the first books that I read as I made the tran­sition from a negative reactor to a positive creator. I started to realize that I could create some of my circumstances by having a posi­tive mental attitude. I once heard a powerful story from Dr. Peale of how he had been walking by a tattoo shop and a very confused-looking man came out of the shop with a new tattoo on his arm that read ‘‘Born to Lose!’’ Dr. Peale watched the man stumble down the street and then noticed that the tattoo artist had come out of the shop and also looked as the man stumble away. The old tattoo artist sadly shook his head and said, ‘‘I asked him if he was sure that he wanted the tattoo to state that he was born to lose. And he was adamant that he did.’’ Then Dr Peale said See, before he had it tattooed on his arm, he had tattooed it on his brain!’’ He believes that he re­ally was born to lose and therefore he will act like he was born to lose. None of us were born to lose. We were born to win! But the choice is up to us!
