It’s no secret that people who choose to be more positive are happier and
attract more into their life.
But how can you be more positive when negative thoughts swirl in and out of your mind all day?
For some people it’s easy. Either they are born positive or their parents passed down positive thinking skills. The rest of us have to find our way to positive thinking through trial and error or stumble on someone who can teach us.
Someone Taught Me
My path to be more positive thoughts began in 2001. I attended a workshop in a Philadelphia suburb that had a profound effect on my life. During the workshop I had one of the biggest and surprising “ah ha!” moments in my life.
The only reason I attended this workshop was because a friend suggested it. I was separating from my husband of 15 years and stuck waist-deep in a miserable situation. My friend shared that he was shaken by his divorce too. The workshop isn’t about divorce, he said. If you aren’t in a good place it will help you get clear about yourself so you can move forward. I think you’ll get a lot from it.
It was only 20 minutes away and I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. I needed a miracle, not a workshop, but I signed up anyway.
The first day of the workshop was a blur. It was hard to push my thoughts aside and focus. The second day of the workshop found me gazing out the window and half listening to the facilitator. He was droning away and drawing on the board to illustrate his story. I have no idea what he was saying…my mind was light-years away.
What I do remember is that the moment he wrote the word “CHOICES” on the chalk board, my ears perked up and my body snapped to attention.
”You have a choice in every situation in your life. he said. “You can choose how to respond. You can even choose which thoughts you want to listen to,” he informed us.
Are you talking to me? I thought. You mean I can CHOOSE what thoughts I want? I can even choose to be more positive? Wow. I love this idea.
This was the first time I had heard this in my life. I was as stunned as if someone told me I won the lottery.
Until that moment, it never occurred to me to direct my thoughts. It never occurred to me that I could change how I feel and be more positive. I couldn’t believe that I had been so oblivious.
Being more positive has changed my life so tremendously that I feel both compelled and blessed to share this with as many people as possible.
Fast forward 10 years and I teach people just like you to discover how to direct your thoughts to be more positive and attract more in your life.
You get to pass it on to others too.
Life doesn’t get much better than this.
