This week I’m here for a really simple — yet, important — topic. This is something that I deal with, with many of my clients — and that is, making the decision to focus on the positive.


When I was at my lowest point, I considered myself a realist. I was proud of the fact that I saw things exactly as they were. And for me, at the time, that meant a pretty strong existential crisis. My whole world was focused on these dark topics with depressing themes, which I considered at the time to be a very realistic way to view the world.


Here’s the thing: I now know that what I considered a realistic and objective view of the world was not necessarily A) as valuable as I thought it was, and B) as honest and objective as I thought it was. So that’s what I really want to talk about with you all today: making the decision of where you put your focus on. Life will always have both positive and negative aspects, so where you put your focus makes all the difference.

[11:38] Here’s what happens when you begin working on this exercise.

[12:39] My question for you: what is it you want? Do you want to be right? Or do you want to be happy?

[13:31] How focusing on the positive has helped me in my own life.
