Being positive has always been my belief and I endeavour to surround myself with positive thinkers. Generally, force of nature confirms that this is where the law of attraction comes into play.

Growing up, friends enter and exit your life at different stages; school, university then work. In my late 20’s early 30’s I entered motherhood and it is at this age I formed long lasting friendships with positive people which reinforced my belief in the power of positivity. With the emergence of Wednesday Morning Coffee, I’ve been fortunate enough to meet people with like minds which reaffirms my view that positivity breeds positivity both professionally and/ or personally.

A positive attitude in general leads to success and happiness. So enter the new year on a positive note, be optimistic and drive away negative thoughts. Adopt positivity as a way of life, and you will find that it will bring constructive changes and make you happier, healthier, brighter and more successful. Begin each day with an affirmation (positive statements) which will trigger your subconscious mind to strive and work for you and make the positive statements come true, find your personal mantra and believe in it.

Positivity provides you with a healthy outlook on all aspects of your life, it helps you to:

  • Believe in success and dismiss failure.
  • Be inspired  
  • Strengthen your determination in the face of adversity
  • Face challenges and see them as blessings in disguise.
  • Believe in yourself and in your abilities.
  • Build self-esteem, self- worth and self -value
  • Look for solutions, rather than dwell on problems.
  • Recognize opportunities.
  • Keep healthy

Positivity leads to happiness and inner peace, which leads to success. If you look on the bright side of life, it fills you with light, which in turn reflects the way you look at the world and the way you are perceived by it. It’s as if you radiate light around you and that becomes contagious.

The handful of friends that I have (and you know who you are) transmit this kind of light which bounces on me keeping my positive attitude, energy and thoughts buzzing. Surround yourselves with people who are full of such positive energy if you haven’t already, and you will see the difference.

Starting the new year on a positive note, remember: when one door shuts another opens, everything has its own life cycle, look forward to the new and never regret the past, everything comes to an end for a reason. Only you can dictate which pathway you choose, only you are responsible for your life choices and only you can bring about change!

Happy New Year.
