Mindful Mondays: Two Kinds of People

Each Monday, I would like to share a reminder about the importance of being mindful. These will come from literature, popular culture, music--anywhere one might get this sort of everyday life nudge.

You've heard it.  You've maybe even said it.  There are two kinds of people in this world:

_______________ and _______________

The variety of distinctions between various foils within humanity are nearly endless.  These can include:
those who like x and those who don't

some more ominous:
those who do the work and those who take the credit

and sometimes even humorous statements regarding:
those who cry during the beginning of Up and those who lie.

And although I do love the following distinction attributed to Tim Robbins and think it is worth considering, “There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who believe there are two kinds of people in this world and those who are smart enough to know better,” I will provide you with just one more...

There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who think they can and those who think they can’t…and they are both right.” (Speaker Unknown)

Today's Challenge: Determine what kind of person you are today and if that is the type of person you always hoped you would be.  Do you think you can or think you can't?  Do you trust your decisions and look positively forward or do you have more regrets than accomplishments, more pessimism than optimism?  Today is a new day and you have the choice and the freedom to believe in yourself and look forward to a better future.  Starting right now.
