The Power of Positivity EP53

Did you know that researchers did a study where they interviewed people who were on their deathbed, asking what their biggest regrets in life were? Wishing they were happier more was consistent across the board. Interesting, so shouldn't we learn from these people and strive not to have the same regret when that time comes for us?


There is so much negativity in the media today, and I've done my best to limit the negative social media from infiltrating into my days, but it's hard as it's the norm to say, "did you hear about what happened downtown? I can't believe so and so tweeted that about so and so," in daily random conversations. But does it have to be that way? Do we have to play along with the masses and keep mindlessly contributing to this non-necessary practice, by passing on negativity through our conversations?


For the following books, I'm going to reference, know that I'm only scratching the surface of all the learning nuggets in each title. If something resonates with you from a certain book, by the end of this episode, I highly encourage you to pick up a copy of your own and read it in its entirety. I've included the links below. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the episode!
