Train yourself to be a positive thinker

You can be a force for positive change in the world. You can choose to do this right now. All it takes is the desire and then the focus. That’s it. It’s so simple.
And yet, why does it seem so difficult? Why does this concept seem like we are on the treadmill going so fast and we are trailing behind about to fall off. 
First of all, we are living in a really fast paced world and it is so easy to become overwhelmed. Our email boxes are crammed with messages daily. The cell phone rings off the hook. We have obligations from every single angle adding complication after complication. It actually seems hard to focus on anything let alone something that seems to be cutting against the surface.
So, on your Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter or Facebook, a meme comes across your feed constantly. A beautiful picture with a short quotation telling you something wonderful about pliving or creating beauty in the world. A meme is a quick idea. You look at it. You may even find some joy out of it in the moment and then you move onto something else in your life…. Until the next internet meme.
Let’s face it, we are inundated with this rhetoric all the time and we barely have the time to take notice, let alone do something about it. And that’s the point, do something. Take notice. Moving forward is one of the greatest things we can do in our lives.  
Use the information that is useful. When I was a kid, I had a sign hanging on my wall that said “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” Well, I only waited till life handed me lemons to make lemonade, but the truth of the matter is … Go out and find some lemons, … Be creative with them. Make a lemon cake instead.  
Be positive. Engage yourself. And keep doing it because you have been trained to accept the what’s wrong with our lives, rather than concentrating on the right. We just love to play the victim. But that’s another story for another day. Until then, Be the most invincible version of you that you can imagine.  


Win Tomorrow Today!

At Jo’s coffee shop in Austin… with Ginnie…20170218_215705338_ios I celebrate the fact that I submitted an application for coaching to JB Glossinger, the Morning Coach. I listen to his phenomenal podcast almost every single day.  The truth is though, that I feel that his brand of coaching is so beyond my means, but I also felt that I could no longer not ask for it.  I pat myself on the shoulder for making the move.  Imperfect action.  We’ll see… in the past, I would feel that if something was beyond my means, it wasn’t even worth asking for.  I’d be too disappointed if the answer is a staunch “NO”… but truth is I’ve gotten “NO” for an answer “many, many times” (You’d have to ask me about that particular phrase and I’d have a really great story on that) and I’ve definitely lived through the tragedy, pain and turmoil of it all.  It’s all good.

Reprogram Your Mind to Be Great

It20170201_023941000_ios is known that we human beings only utilize a small percentage of our brain capacity.


That said, what is our brain, or rather our mind saying to us? On a frequent basis. Only you know the answer to that. You need to listen in to what your mind is telling you about your life.


How can we utilize the power of our brains to think on our feet better, to do things we only thought we could not do, to believe in our power to go beyond and achieve things that we previously thought we weren’t able to.


I can’t. Other people can, but not me. Perfect example of a limiting belief. The only reason we know others can is because they did. But we can and we could and we will and then and only then we did.


That’s the invincible part of our being that needs to be programmed with the right energy and thoughts. We can reprogram our brains to believe we can. That’s in our very core. And it is only a fragment of tiny piece of what we can do if we put our minds to it. Infinitesimal, in fact. Not even .0001% of that ten percent of brain power, we do have the knowledge and the power to use. Everyone of us has this ability. It’s built into our humanity. So they can, you can, we can and I can!


It does take training. It does take desire and passion. It absolutely takes determination. It can be done. And with an invincible mindset, it will be done.
