Thrive or Survive DRAFT

Are you tired of all the negativity the world has somehow decided we need to live in? Why does putting others down somehow make people feel better about themselves? Nothing positive ever comes from negativity, yet many find that being in a cesspool of negativity is somehow empowering. It actually is not.

Positivity is just as powerful as negativity, and far more is accomplished when we move from what is right and build on it. Imagine that! What if you started the ripple of positivity in your sphere of influence? It can be as easy as smiling at a stranger or ensuring that those around you know why you respect or appreciate them. Building rapport and connection is like electricity. When you turn it on, it lights people up.

Over the years, I have seen the power of positivity and what it does to productivity. It is not only good for our emotional and physical health. It is a business strategy worth embracing. When people feel valued and appreciated, they work at a different pace. When people feel heard and are not intimidated, they share their ideas, and one of those ideas might just be the next strategy to quantum leap your business.

My experience is that people think positivity is too “kumbaya” and actually, the opposite is true. It is negative energy that slows us down and sucks our energy. It doesn’t happen to some of us. It happens to all of us.

The Lesson: Look for ways to promote positivity.

Live All in, Renie
