Accentuate the Positive…

There was a song in the 40’s written and performed by Johnny Mercer. (If you haven’t ever listened to his music, give it a whirl!). The first line says – “You’ve got to accentuate the positive – eliminate the negative…”

Amen to that!

I was talking with a couple of friends recently and we were wondering how two negative words (“No Problem”) could come to mean “It’s All Good”. Seriously? Can we please rethink that concept for a moment?


I’m making a conscious decision to retool my thoughts and words to give an strong emphasis on positive. Instead of “barking up the wrong tree”, how about if I’m barking up the right one? Yes!

I’m going to Accentuate the Positive (and leaving the rest of the phrase off for obvious reasons) 🙂
