Thanksgiving: How choosing an attitude of gratitude can change your life

first_imgIt’s been a tough year. For some, tough times may have already been a reality prior to covid and all the challenges of 2020.Life can be hard, change is a constant, and we can all struggle. As we approach Thanksgiving I have been thinking about how crucial gratitude is for us all right now. Zig Ziglar, among others, talks about the importance of having an attitude of gratitude, and not allowing ourselves to fall victim to “stinkin’ thinkin’.” Ziglar said, “We all need a check up from the neck up to avoid stinkin ‘thinkin‘ which ultimately leads to hardening of the attitudes.”Gratitude is one tool to help us manage our thoughts and feelings. It is hard to feel fully stressed, negative, or worried if you are feeling deeply and genuinely grateful. How many of us have said or thought, “I have to go grocery shopping tonight.” If we make a slight change to that and think instead, “I get to go grocery shopping tonight,” it can change our outlook and our feelings. Truly, I get to, I have the ability to, go get food for my family and I am grateful for that. It is something that can be taken lightly, or can feel like a chore, but in reality, many would cherish that opportunity that may not be a reality for them. Or, “My son has three soccer games this weekend that I have to go to.” In my world, “My son has three soccer games this weekend that I get to go to.” I am grateful that my son has the opportunity to follow his passion, and that I am able to share in this part of his life, to watch and support him in following his dream; what a gift. In a weekly newsletter, Jon Gordon said, “We act as if we don’t have a choice. As if we are imprisoned by a paycheck and the expectations of a world that forces us to do things we don’t want to do. But in reality we do have a choice. We can choose our attitude and our actions. We can choose how we view our life and work. We can realize that every day is a gift. It’s not about what we have to do. It’s about what we get to do.”We can sabotage ourselves into a victim mentality, or a “poor me” mindset. Life certainly can be hard, and feel unfair. But if we ruminate on those thoughts and feelings we put ourselves in a place of negativity that will not support us in forward movement or positive relationships. It is easy to find someone or something to blame for our feelings or our behaviors. However, at the end of the day how we think, act and behave is a choice that we make. Having that knowledge, and willingness to take that ownership, can shift our focus from external factors to internal control, and our life can change for the better.My brother had a cerebral hemorrhage when he was 18. He survived, but was completely paralyzed on the left side of his body. He had to work very hard to regain movement and basic functions. A friend said to him, “It is just not fair that this happened to you.” My brother looked at his friend and said, “Would it have been fair if it happened to someone else?” Life is not “fair,” life can hand us enormous challenges. It is our mindset in approaching those challenges that can be the difference between success and failure, between peace & balance and stress & anxiety.If my brother had focused on the “fairness” of what happened to him, he could have existed in a very negative place that prevented or slowed his recovery process. He expressed gratitude that he survived, gratitude for having wonderful doctors and therapists to make his survival and recovery possible. In many, even very difficult situations, we have a choice and control on how we will approach it. That choice can often dictate outcomes. Situations and events may be out of our control, but our response to them, the thoughts and approach we choose, are completely in our control. The human mind is so powerful. All of us can find an external “why” for our negative feelings and an external “why” for our behaviors and actions. However, in doing so, we limit ourselves. We underestimate our ability to intentionally choose our thoughts, our actions, and our behaviors. We cannot control circumstance or other people, but if we choose to, we can control our outlook, our thoughts, our emotions, and our behaviors.Choosing an attitude of gratitude can be life changing. Take some time each day to write down a few things you are grateful for. If you are struggling to think of something, start small. The simple act of allowing yourself to feel gratitude, to recognize what you have to be thankful for, can build on itself. It can rewire how we approach our day, and our life.“I am thankful for this day to live my life.”“I am thankful for this morning cup of coffee.”“I am thankful for my loved ones in my life.”“I am thankful that I can choose my own thoughts and begin this day with a positive outlook.”“I am thankful I have the strength to support those around me.”“I am thankful that those around me have the strength to support me when I need it.”This Thanksgiving will most likely look and feel different for many of us. However, let’s not lose sight of the things we have to be grateful for. Now more than ever, we need to choose to focus on thoughts which will help us move forward, rather than the things that could keep us stuck in a place of concern, frustration, or despair. Life can be challenging, but so often, if we choose to be intentional in looking, we can find so many things to be thankful for – not the least of which is our ability to choose our thoughts, to control our emotions, and to own our actions and behaviors. Life is a journey, approaching it with an attitude of gratitude can help us embrace and enjoy it so much more, even when we might be navigating a difficult path.

The decision of the League Arbitration Panel is that the sanction is reduced to a deduction of six points in season 2020/21.“The club is digesting the content of the decision and will not provide further comment until it is published.” – Advertisement – – Advertisement – Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship match between Sheffield Wednesday and Bournemouth Wednesday were informed they would start the 2020-21 season on -12 points in August, having been told by the league they “should not have included profits from the sale of Hillsborough in financial statements for the period ending July 2018”.

Clippers owner Donald Sterling banned for life; NBA will push for sale of team

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “It would be tough for a kid getting drafted or a free agent player making a decision to lay for this franchise without a change of ownership in place,” players union vice president Rojer Mason Jr. told this newspaper. “I would hope it gets done sooner or later.”Mason Jr. revealed the players union also considered a league-wide boycott had Silver provided a less swifter punishment.The NBA decided otherwise, making a ruling four days after a set of audio recordings released by TMZ and Deadspinfeatured comments made by Sterling to girlfriend V. Stiviano, urging her not to bring black friends to Clippers games. Silver said the NBA’s investigation confirmed it was Sterling’s voice in those tapes.“The views expressed by Mr. Sterling are deeply offensive and harmful,” Silver said. “That they came from an NBA owner only heightens the damage and my personal outrage.”The Clippers organization released a statement that said: “We wholeheartedly support and embrace the decision by the NBA and Commissioner Adam Silver today. Now the healing process begins.” Clippers guard Chris Paul added in a statement, “My teamamtes and I are in agreement with his decision. We appreciate the strong leadership from Commissioner Silver and he has our full support.” Clippers president Andy Roeser will handle the day-to-day operations, while Clippers coach Doc Rivers will oversee basketball operations. Rivers, who suggested uncertainty beforehand whether he would stay if Sterling still owned the team, downplayed that variable.“We’re going to let this play its course,” Rivers said. “I’m not in the position nor do I want to be in a position where I’m threatening anything. I want my players to be comfortable.”In 2009, Sterling paid $2.7 million to settle a lawsuit that accused him of practicing housing discrimination in various L.A.-based real estate properties to blacks, Hispanics and families with children. Former Clippers general manager Elgin Baylor filed a wrongful-termination lawsuit against Sterling that likened his leadership to that of a Southern plaintation owner, a case a jury eventually rejected. Silver said the NBA never penalized Sterling beforehand because there was never definitive proof of guilt. “We did not take into account his past behavior,” Silver said. “When the board ultimately considers his overall fitness to be an owner in the NBA, they will take into account a lifetime of behavior.”Silver said he did not know if Sterling will fight the decision. But Silver downplayed any concerns surrounding Sterling’s comments being recorded in a private setting.“Whether or not these remarks were shared in private,” Silver said, “they are now public and they represent his views.” Amid racially charged comments attributed to him in a released audiotape, Clippers owner Donald Sterling faces a lifetime suspension, $2.5 million fine and a possible forced sale of the franchise, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced in a press conference Tuesday in New York.“I am banning Mr. Sterling for life from any association with the Clippers organization or the NBA,” Silver said.Sterling, who has overseen the Clippers franchise for the past 33 years, will not be allowed to attend any basketball games or practices or have any say in business or personnel decisions. Sterling also will be barred from attending the NBA’s Board of Governors meetings. Silver said the fines will go to anti-discrimination organizations selected by the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association.Silver added he will urge the Board of Governors to force the sale of the team.center_img “I will do everything in my power to assure that happens,” said Silver, who added he needs only a three-quarters vote for a measure to pass. “I fully expect to get the support I need from the other NBA owners to remove him.”Silver’s decision sparked strong support.Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban tweeted he agreed “100%” with Silver’s punishment against Sterling. Lakers legend Magic Johnson tweeted praise, lauded Silver’s “great leadership” and added, “Former and current NBA players are very happy and satisfied with Commissioner Silver’s ruling.”“Adam was decisive, firm and compelling and showed great leadership in his condemnation of the horrible and offensive comments that have led to this action,” Lakers president Jeanie Buss said in a statement.Yet, according to a league soruce familiar with the proceedings, the NBA currently does not know when the next Board of Governors meeting will take place for a vote.last_img read more

Cover crops and flooding

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The challenging growing conditions in Ohio this year have exaggerated problems that may not be that significant under normal conditions. Problem fields with disease, drainage issues and soil compaction have been particularly disastrous with the persistent 2015 rains.Among the soggier areas of the state early this summer was Mercer County, where some areas got more than 17 inches of rain in the month of June.“Most farmers got everything in and got sidedressing done,” said Gary Fennig, of Fennig Equipment, of the area around Coldwater. “Locally here there is not much prevented planting, but there is a lot of unevenness in corn and a lot of drowned out areas.”Fennig spent much of June dodging rain showers while working to custom apply nutrients, particularly nitrogen in struggling corn fields. While problems show up under tough conditions, it is also easier to see some of the positive things going on in fields as well. Fennig saw a difference in fields with cover crops and no-till and how they handled the excessive water this year.“Cover crop ground that I have been across seems to be handling the wet weather better than the conventional tillage ground. It keeps the soil where it needs to be if you had a cover crop established over the winter,” Fennig said. “The washouts are not as bad. When you get 17 inches of rain regardless of what you have done in the field there will be some problems, but with cover crops, the soil is less apt to run off. The water is getting away quicker where the cover crop was established because those roots have provided a place for the water to get away rather than running off the field. All of this rain is demonstrating that cover crops are at the forefront of better fertility and better crops and helping with the runoff issues.”Jim Hoorman, with Ohio State University Extension, has also been watching fields with long-term no-till and cover crops under the challenging conditions this spring in northwest Ohio.“I have been watching several fields and there is less standing water and overall better crops with long-term no-till and covers. If you do rotational tillage — no-till beans into corn but rip soybeans going to corn — then there is no difference,” Hoorman said. “You have to be in true long-term no-till plus covers to see the benefits. There are not many people really doing this system.”last_img read more

Yahoo’s $100 Million Ad Campaign: It’s You!

first_imgdana oshiro 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Early this morning Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz rang the NASDAQ opening bell in honor of her efforts at New York’s Advertising week. Said Bartz, “Yahoo is where half a billion people come every month. They come to be entertained, they come to be informed, they come to talk to their friends and their business associates. In other words, Yahoo is the center of people’s lives. That is what we are.” Bartz’s words are significant as the company is expected to unveil a $100 million dollar “It’s You!” campaign tomorrow morning. According to the Wallstreet Journal the campaign focuses on “personalization and how Yahoo can help people navigate all their services and information online”. Judging by the fact that the article goes on to describe the campaign’s font consistencies, it appears very little beyond the campaign aesthetic has been leaked to eager New Yorkers. Last month ReadWriteWeb covered a number of Yahoo updates to Mail, Search and Messenger. The most notable items appear to be the ability to monitor friends and status updates from a single dashboard. Being the singular entry-point for multiple services including Flickr, Mail and Messenger is likely to be a major facet of the Yahoo campaign. Nevertheless, while the company remains a leading advertising and email player, critics argue that these recent life streaming features do not offer the same ease of use as sites like Facebook and Friendfeed. It will be interesting to see if the new campaign can convince users to stay within the Yahoo ecosystem for all of their communications and business needs.
