Be Positive ... and Live Longer!

Attitude is huge.

People with a positive attitude can have a strong influence on those around them.

Equally people with a negative attitude can drag everyone down!

One of my favorite sayings is "Walk Fast and Smile" ... the simple message being that by doing those two things you will project energy and positive enthusiasm.

I have a "book of lists" ... and one of those lists is things that make me smile!

If you accept the power of positivity then there are three things you can do:

1. Hang out with as many positive people as possible;

2. Reduce the time you spend with negative people as much as possible;

3. Work on being the most positive person that you can be!

If you need any more motivation that that, a study of nuns over the course of 50 years concluded that people with a positive attitude outlive their counterparts by 10 years!

That works for me, I'm gonna keep walking fast and smiling!

“A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.”

I write these articles with the intent of sharing MY experience and knowledge gained during MY life journey. From the 16 year old joining the Royal Navy, through many incarnations, to the grey haired guy who built a business. If you find a nugget here, then I am happy. If the message offends you then I apologise, that was never my intent. I know and recognize there are many people and groups who have a far bigger challenge than I have had and I only wish you well.
