2017 Wisdom.
 
Famed investor Warren Buffett once said "If a cop follows you for 500 miles, you're going to get a ticket."  No one is a saint, but you and I can make anyone the reason for my and our woes in this life, with enough -- FOCUS.
Focus, can be both positive AND negative in life.
The point is, what you are FOCUSING ON, you will FIND.
 
Positive, or negative.
 
If you believe someone is a crook, you will find evidence of that.
If you believe the world is against you, you will find evidence of that.
If you believe your mother is a saint, you will find evidence of that.
If you believe your dad is a chump, you will find evidence of that.
It is called 'bias-confirmation.'
 
"Whether you believe you can, or believe that you CAN'T -- you are absolutely right."
 
Focus on the POSITIVE in your life, as you move into 2017.
This Andrews Sister's Song from December, 1944, seems to say it all.
You've got to accentuate the positive Eliminate the negative Latch on to the affirmative Don't mess with Mister In-Between You've got to spread joy up to the maximum Bring gloom down to the minimum Have faith or pandemonium Liable to walk upon the scene To illustrate his last remark Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark What did they do Just when everything looked so dark Man, they said we better, accentuate the positive Eliminate the negative Latch on to the affirmative Don't mess with Mister In-Between No, do not mess with Mister In-Between Do you hear me? Oh, listen to me children and-a you will hear About the elininatin' of the negative And the accent on the positive And gather 'round me children if you're willin' And sit tight while I start reviewin' The attitude of doin' right You've gotta accentuate the positive Eliminate the negative Latch on to the affirmative Don't mess with Mister In-Between You've got to spread joy up to the maximum Bring gloom, down to the minimum Otherwise pandemonium Liable to walk upon the scene To illustrate my last remark Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark What did they say Say when everything looked so dark Man, they said we better accentuate the positive Eliminate the negative Latch on to the affirmative Don't mess with Mister In-Between No, don't mess with Mister In-Between Let's go....
