Missionary Tip #1

BE POSITIVE

My Mom shared this song that she sung to us growing up in my Brother's latest email. It talks about positivity being the key to happiness. As we all know missionaries go through ups and downs on their mission and here is a little reminder to bring them up from a down. 

"Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive"

You've got to accentuate the positive

Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene

To illustrate my last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do
Just when everything looked so dark

Man, they said we better
Accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between
No, do not mess with Mister In-Between

The music was written by Harold Arlen and the lyrics by Johnny Mercer, and it was published in 1944.
