Well-said. Much needed :) studies show to that training yourself to focus on the positive can literally make you happier. Something worthwhile to work on for sure!

I was introduced to it about 6 years ago through Marcus Buckingham. Google him, his strengths finder, and his studies in the schools. I think you’ll really engage with it.

So powerful in it’s simplicity, isn’t it? We all do some things well, yet we probably don’t stop to acknowledge them, because we’re busy with our mental lists of all that we still have to do and fix and take care of.

I love this, thank you!

It reminds me of taking something up – rather than giving something up – at Lent. Some years doing a bit of an art project or paying your spouse a compliment or emailing your mum every day makes more sense than just giving up chocolate. (I say ‘just’. Giving up chocolate is hard!)

I also love how he says that people don’t come to creative businesses for what you do WRONG. They come because they love what you’re doing RIGHT. So smart.

Love that line. I need to hear that line often. I may just paint that on my wall to remind myself everyday. I am not Target.

Thanks.
