Life can be a blast when you’re positive!



untitledBeing able to see the positive aspects of any situation, even when you’re confronted by difficulties, can be life changing. It will help you develop a ‘cando’ attitude,which in turn gives you a sense of power and being in control. “Life can be a lot easier when we think positive” says Megan Vanlieshout.
Remember if you’re positive, your kids will be positive and if you’re negative your kids most probably will be too. We are not born ‘winners’ or ‘losers’ but as ‘choosers’.
Decide what’s right for you and your family.
untitledThis month, we focus on “A” for: ATTITUDE.
People’s thoughts tend to determine how well or how badly they function – whether you think you can, or you can’t, you’re probably right depending on your thoughts at the time. We really are what we think. The right attitude is your most important asset.
A quick quiz for you…
1) If you woke up in the morning and saw that it was raining, what would you think:
A: Oh good – I won’t have to water the garden.
B: That’s great; the farms and ground could really do with a drink.
C: Glad I brought a new umbrella.
D: What a horrible day, I don’t want to get out of bed.
2) At work, if you were asked by a colleague to take over a new project, would you think:
A: This is an interesting challenge.
B: My boss must think I’m capable – I’ll prove him or her right.
C: This could lead to the promotion I’ve been hoping for, and possibly more money.
D: I wonder if I’m up to it, if it was to difficult for him/her.
3) If you were invited to a party where you knew almost no one, would you think:
A: This will be fun and I might meet some interesting people.
B: I should go, as it’s the sort of challenge I need.
C: At the very least it’ll be free food and drink, and I might actually have an enjoyable evening.
D: I’m not good with strangers, and I probably won’t have anything in common with anyone.
This isn’t to say any answer is WRONG, but how would you look at the situations????


Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
