This attitude made me curious, so one day I went up to Lucas and asked do not understand, is it possible to be a positive person all the time.

Lucas was the kind of guy you love to hate.

He was always in a good mood and always had something positive to say.

When someone asked him how he was doing, he replied: “If I were any better, I’d be twins.”

He was a unique manager because he had several waiters who had followed him from restaurant to restaurant.

The reason the waiters followed Lucas was his attitude. 

He was a natural motivator if an employee had a bad day; Lucas was there to telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.

Seeing this style really caused me curious, so one day I went up to Lucas and asked, do not you understand … you cannot be a positive person all the time? How do you do it?

Lucas replied:

Every morning I wake up and say to myself, Lucas, you have two choices today: “You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood. I choose to be in a good mood. “

“Every time something bad happens, I can choose between being a victim or learn from it.I choose to learn from it.”

“Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life.”

Yes, of course, but it is not that easy, I protested. “Yes it is,” Lucas said. “Everything in life is about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice.”

“You choose how you react to situations, you choose how people will affect your mood, you choose to be in a good mood or a bad mood.”

“In short, you choose how to live life.”

I reflected on what Lucas said.

Shortly thereafter, I left the restaurant industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often thought about Lucas when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it.

Several years later, I learned that Lucas did something that should never be done in a restaurant business, he left the back door open one morning and was robbed by three armed robbers.

While trying to open the safe, his hand, shaking from nervousness, she slipped off the combination. The robbers panicked and shot him.

Luckily, Lucas was found relatively quickly and rushed to a clinic. After eight hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Lucas was discharged even with bullet fragments in his body.

I met Lucas six months after the accident and when I asked how he was, he replied: “If I were any better, I’d be twins.” I asked what went through his mind at the time of the assault.

He replied:

“The first thing came to my mind was that I should have locked the back door. When I was lying on the floor, I remembered I had two choices: I could choose to live or I could choose to die. I chose to live “Do not you scared?, I asked.

Lucas continued, “The paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when I got into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. I could read in his eyes: he is dead. I knew I needed to take a decision.”

What did you do?, I asked.

“Well, one of the doctors asked me if I was allergic to something and taking a deep breath I cried Yes, to bullets … while laughing, I said I’m choosing to live, Operate on me as if he were alive, not dead”. Lucas lived by the skill of his doctors, but because of his amazing attitude.

He learned that every day we have the choice to live fully, the attitude in the end is everything.
