Shiny People and Relentless Positivity

This is the most interesting post I’ve read on WordPress as it relates to having a positive attitude. You will want to read about “shiny people!!”

In my last post “Road Warriors and The Big Easy”, I briefly mentioned the many instances of shiny people we met on our way through the beautiful and warm city of Nawlin’s.

I feel the overwhelming need to further describe the birth and concept of shiny people in general…so I’ll try to make this as concise and deep as possible, while avoiding writing a novel (One, in which I am actually simultaneously writing at the moment). A taste if you will.

But first and foremost I must admit, I didn’t coin the term shiny people – I have only passively absorbed it from my dear friend Minnesota Nick, who happens to be one of the shiniest people I’ve met, and who I assume, given the nature of life, also picked it up from some another shiny person.

So who are these shiny people?

This is a new blogger I am following and this post is a homerun!!!! The list exercise at the end is one I have never used but it makes so much sense and helps to train the mind to be more positive. I loved this post!

My boss always talks about the concept of mindset and how in everything you do in life, your mindset about it will affect the outcome. He surrounds all of his employees with positive affirmations and promotes the idea of a can-do attitude. We sometimes laugh (even cringe) at the different things that come up on our daily calendars but as I’ve started to get into coaching and really think about my own life and my own weight loss journey, I am starting to really believe that mindset is EVERYTHING.

I am of the opinion that attitude is a choice. I have this opinion because I was once a negative thinker. After nearly a year of changing my mindset I now consider myself an optimist. AND I am a better person for having done so.

Question: How does attitude affect the success or failure of a construction project?

Answer: Optimism and pessimism are attitudes you are free to choose and to embrace. Whether for good or bad, your thoughts make you who you are. They direct your self-fulfilling prophecies. Positive or negative self-talk becomes reinforced into the paradigm that you have determined and then produces evidence to support your belief. If you think you will have a bad project, then you are definitely right. If you think you will have a good project, you’re probably right.

Point: Attitude is a matter of personal choice. It is the key that either opens you to success or locks you out.

We all know that when our attitude and mindset is positive we are way more likely to be happy and succeed. Being positive is an amazing tool in helping us create the life we want to, and reach the dreams we are chasing. But sometimes it’s hard to stay positive. Life can throw all kinds of curve balls at us and lots of things can lead to us thinking in a negative way. With this in mind I’ve put together my top tips for creating and keeping a positive attitude when things get us down or we are having a tough time.

Look for the positive in every situation

Learning to find the positive in a negative situation can often be tricky and sometimes we think there is nothing positive at all in what we are going through, but trust me, there is something positive in EVERYTHING. You just need to…

Muddling Through My Middle Age

IMG_0055Last Friday night, my husband and I took some very good friends to the local “Balloon Glow,” which is an event held the night before the Great Forest Park Balloon Race. Everyone gathers in the park to watch the giant hot-air balloons being blown up, and after it gets dark, the balloons light up randomly, a few seconds at a time.  Every so often, a loud whistle blows as a signal that all the balloons are going to be lit up at the same time.  It’s an incredibly beautiful sight.

My husband and I have been to this event several times, but this was the first year that this couple joined us, and they were very excited to see the balloons all lit up.  They brought their camera, and we came early to beat the crowds and make sure we didn’t miss anything.  We even paid extra to attend a…
