    Keeping a Positive Attitude at the Workplace

    It's no secret that maintaining a positive attitude, especially at the workplace, can improve our chances of achieving our goals, give us greater energy and motivation, and help to alleviate stress. Dr. Norman Peale, an eternal optimist known as the Father of the Positive Thinking once said, "If we can change our thinking, we can change our lives." Try these simple suggestions for incorporating positive thinking into your work:
  • Remember, what you give in, you take out. Instead of complaining about a bad situation, ask yourself what you're doing to manifest that reality, and think about what you should be doing to change it.
  • Be proactive. Accomplishing the tasks set before you, even if you dislike them or they seem difficult, gives you a sense of accomplishment, and newfound confidence about your capabilities, not to mention an inner peace that everything is done.
  • Think about what works. It may seem simplistic, but consciously thinking about the positive aspects of a situation, rather than the negative, can help build a more positive attitude overall. Be grateful for the accomplishments of your coworkers, or the successes of the company, and you will start to see your workplace in a better light.

    Famous Quotes about the Medical Profession

    Medicine is one of the oldest and most respected fields of study, so it's only natural that many of history's greats had a lot to say about it. Here are some quotes and sayings about healthcare and the practice of medicine throughout history:

    "The greatest wealth is health." -- Virgil
    "It should be the function of medicine to help people die young as late in life as possible." - Ernst Wynder
    "The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not." - Mark Twain
    "The fate of a nation has often depended on the good or bad digestion of a prime minister." -- Voltaire

    What Does Your Car Say about You?

    People have always based their choice of vehicle at least partially on how it will affect their image; but are we really what we drive? A panel of auto experts says yes. For example, Auto Pacific's Senior Manager Stephanie Brinley says that Prius owners tend not only to be more environmentally conscious, but "are more often women, have fewer kids, and more often have college educations." On the other hand, a Chevorlet Corvette is, "more often a reward car. Its buyers are older than the industry average, with 88% born before 1946." James Bell, Editor and Publisher of IntelliChoice, adds, "Sadly, the usual stereotype of the Corvette buyer as a 57-year old male deep in a mid-life crisis is proven." So, in the case of cars and their owners, some stereotypes ring true!
