Positive Pause – 25th July, 2016 – Positive Mindset

positive mindset“You have power over your mind – not outside events.  Realize this, and you will find strength.” Marcus Aurelius. positive mindset

The famous Roman Emperor believed that we are all responsible for finding, creating and maintaining our own happiness.  If we can find strength and peace in ourselves then happiness follows suit.  Aurelius said that “our happiness depends on the quality of our thoughts.”  By allowing our thoughts to be positive even in the face of adversity we can conquer most challenges.

Aurelius practised what he preached and kept a strong positive mindset through great hardships of almost constant wars and disease in addition to losing his parents and brother at a young age.

This week, when faced with a situation that you do not like but have no means to change, accept it in the first place and secondly, decide how you wish to respond.  This is where your positive power lies.

Please take the time to check out my online, self-help program, The Positive Habit.

Positive Pause – 5th October 2015 – Renew Yourself

StrandTake this morning and each day this week as an opportunity to renew your energy. Picture a strand where the sea comes in and out each day. Everyday there will be different water and the sea will have a different energy. Now, apply this idea to your own mental and physical energy and look at each morning as wonderful chance to start the day with a positive mindset. If you allow a build-up of negative energy to form it can drain you on a mental, physical, emotional and spiritual level.

Start each day as the tide does, by clearing away any stresses and strains from the day before and begin each day afresh. Renew yourself.
