  • These are times when we catch ourselves saying: I’m all alone! Nobody cares! That’s nothing! I don’t care! Remember the time...! I can’t forgive! I can’t forget! I don’t know what to do! Feeling: Isolated and abandoned Indifferent to everything around us Reliving regrets over and over Procrastination has become the ONLY option
  • Looking bad As adults our laughter is often not free flowing. We hold it back, suppress it or change it, making sure that it’s a good laugh: not too loud and not too long, avoiding all inclinations of spitting, coughing, snorting and other unmentionables. Laughed at We are also afraid of wasting time, being talked about, not taken seriously, losing our teeth and looking stupid. Everyone wants to look their best. Being Inappropriate Have you ever laughed at the wrong thing or the wrong time? Laughed at someone only to realise that you were next.
  • Just how powerful can an optimistic outlook be? Two studies - one of which shows how not smoking increases life expectancy by 7 years, while the other shows that living positively and optimistically increases life expectancy by 10 years. Who knew? Pessimistic or destructive thoughts have more energy and power that positive one. You have to recognize and challenge these thoughts that roll around in our minds.
  • Connect with all the good people that are here (get to know them personally and professionally) Focus your thoughts on creating good things in your life and your business Be good to yourself, take in the ressources that are for yourself and your business, enjoy your time away from work Make the changes that need to happen When was the last time you did something just for you? If you are going to do great things, you have to feel good. I mean really good! Take a look at the good things that have happened in your life. Ask the people around you to say three things about you. Be grateful for the good people and good things in your life. You have worked hard for this. Be grateful for the person that you are. Be grateful for all the good things around you. I am grateful for my grand-father! His smile is with me whenever I need him and when I grow up I want to be just like my pepère. He had a wonderful life. I asked him how he made it happen. He said to me: Don’t let it get to you! He’s right! I work very hard on having a good life but I sometimes let things get to me. It’s not easy with all the difficult people around us:
