You create the story of your life. You have the freedom to decide if it’s a happy story or a downer. It’s all in the way you see things. You can see challenges as impossible obstacles or learning opportunities. You decide when you have enough (money, success, love), when you can start loving yourself, and when you love your life. What’s difficult about embracing positivity and choosing to be happy is that our minds get stuck in the negative.
You might have heard that we have as many as 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts a day and that 80% are negative! That is what happens when we don’t live our lives with the intention to be positive. That’s why we’re starting the 30 Day Be More Positive Challenge.80% of our thoughts are negative. Join the 30 Day Be More Positive Challenge to turn this statistic around! Click To Tweet
We have the power to change every second of our lives because we can think about our thoughts and choose to change them. How amazing is it to have this mind power! Just like how we need to be intentional about planning the perfect day, we need to be intentional with our positivity.
