The Amazing Power of being Positive !

Hi Folks,

Read this recently and wanted to share with you the power of Positive Attitude ~

Have included the article in its entirety…

Sam Cawthorn’s near-death experience transformed his life, now he teaches others to do the same

THERE was a loud bang. The next thing Sam Cawthorn remembers is the looks on the faces of people hovering around his broken body, lying in the middle of the road.
“Their eyes were taking in my crumbled leg and my arm that was smashed to pieces and their faces said: ‘This guy’s not going to make it’,” he said.

Mr Cawthorn had fallen asleep at the wheel before crashing into a semi-trailer in a combined speed of 206km/h.

He was pronounced clinically dead by paramedics for three minutes. Hours later, Mr Cawthorn said he woke on life support in a Tasmanian hospital room.

“I suddenly realised that I was alive. If things had turned out differently, I could have been jelly,” he said.

The doctors said they were amazed by Mr Cawthorn’s recovery.

“They described it as a miracle. And that got me wondering about the difference in psychology between someone who survives a crisis like that and someone who does not,” he said.

The difference, as it turns out, was an ability to tap into the positive – and rather than dwell in the crisis, embrace whatever happens to you as an opportunity for growth, Mr Cawthorn said.

“It’s our decision, not our condition that determines our happiness and success in life,” he said.

As his body began the gruelling road to recovery, Mr Cawthorn began to think that he could apply these same lessons to life in the business world.

That may seems a surprising assertion from a man living with a prosthetic arm and chronic phantom pain – but then, that’s all part of his philosophy.

“Everyone has a crisis, it doesn’t matter what or how it occurs, but there is a formula for overcoming it,” he said.

“Before the accident I was a very motivated person, but I had no real direction. Now I see everything differently. I am more grateful for everything and I focus on going forward,” he said.

This is Mr Cawthorn’s advice:

• Connect to your ‘why’: Spend time figuring out why you’re doing what you’re doing with your life. Most people spend more time planning a holiday than they do their lives.
• Be strategic: Seek to maximise every opportunity, no matter how obscure or unlikely.

• Take stock of your relationships: In other words, the people with whom we spend most of our time have the biggest influence on our lives. Associate with people who are positive and you will reap the rewards.

• Leverage happiness: Deciding to be happy is a conscious choice, one that you have to make every single day. No matter what happens, make the most of the situation.

• Focus on ‘bouncing forward’: Don’t look back and try and be someone you used to be, always look to the future. “Looking back on my own experience, I still would not change what happened to me. I am a better version of me because of it,” he said.

The incredible life lessons that emerged from Sam’s extraordinary experience have been documented in his new book ‘Bounce Forward: How to Transform Crisis into Success’.

Hi Folks,

Here now are some ideas to help you get there and enjoy the journey too 😉

We all experience moments of insecurity, frustration, stress and even depression, but for some of us, these moments last longer than others.

Whenever I feel out of alignment, I to get back in-tune  I try these steps of highly happy and successful people, but I’ve changed it a little to be in the present tense, so it becomes a go-to list to pull anyone into a happier state. Maybe it can help you through a tough time.

1. Stop worrying, if it supposed to happen it will.

 

2. Allow yourself to be a beginner. No one starts off being excellent.

11. You always have a choice.

 

12. Stop chasing what’s not working.

 

13. Believe wholeheartedly in miracles.

16. Wake up every morning with a grateful heart.

 

17. Remember things take time.

 

18. Always trust your gut.

 

19. No need to change people; just love them for who they are.

 

20. Don’t resist change.

 

21. Forgive yourself.

 

22. Your life is a creative adventure.

 

23. Release expectations and enjoy the journey, there is no destination.

25. You’re not broken or damaged. You are perfect just the way you are.

So, next time your day is getting you down, you feel there’s not enough hours in the day to rush and get everything done.

Go back to this list…..or do what I like to do…for a month do one new step each day for 25 days….Enjoy and Be Happy !
