Happy Day!

Happy International Day of Happiness!! So here's what happened at our annual meeting!

Can you believe we celebrated this day when we spent some time with the wonderful Chris Redgrave and her talk on the Power of Positivity? If you missed the opportunity to hear her talk, you better hope you can hear it again sometime. It was fabulous. And it gave me a lot to think about - in the way I talk to myself, my family, my co-workers and others.

Did you know that 40% of your happiness is controlled by our thoughts, actions and behaviors. Only 10% is controlled by our circumstances.

According to Chris' research, one of the big things that stops happiness is holding on to resentment. We all need to learn how to bless & release those feelings.

She talked about the "Tetris Effect." When our brains get stuck in a pattern that focuses on stress, negativity and failure, we set ourselves up to fail. The opposite pattern is positivity with a focus on happiness, gratitude and optimism for success.

Chris shared a video of Nick Vujicic. This is the power of positivity.
