The Little Engine

Remember “The Little Engine that Could” by Wally Piper? It is one of the best books for kids to start learning positive thinking at an early age. I used to read them to my two boys when they were little. That was four decades ago. The axiom is still good today and always will be, both for kids and adults alike. In spite of the insurmountable challenge facing the Little Blue Engine and the Big Strong Engine telling it that “it can not, it can not”, the Little Blue Engine keeps on chugging along until it crosses the mountain to the other side. “I think I can! I think I can!” will always provide an inspiration for all those who heard the story when they were young.

Avoid negativity. Think positive: Yes, I can, Yes I can, Yes, I can.

Optimism can be learned by changing your thinking. You’ll accomplish more by doing so and you’ll have less health problems. Studies have shown that optimists live longer than pessimists.

So start the year right and think positive no matter what the situation is.

Until next time. Stop and smell the roses.
