The Power of Positive Thinking

Life is full of millions of miracles. All you have to do is look around to find them. They’re there. They’re always there. All around you. Sometimes we get so bogged down in our day-to-day affairs that we simply don’t remember to look-up (or look around) to find them. So take a moment today to look for one. Just one. That’s all you need for today. One tiny miracle around you.

Find one today. Then another one tomorrow. Then another one the day after that. And the day after that. And soon enough you’ll find enough miracles in your life and all around you without having to try so hard. They’ll just appear before you. It’s amazing what happens when you actually go looking for something. You find a lot of things along the way. Suddenly you see life differently. It’s like when you buy a new car and all of the sudden you see so many other shiny new cars out there, and some that are just like yours.

When you use the power of positive thinking, your perspective of life will change. You’ll feel happier inside. Less stressed out. More content with your life. You’ll see. It won’t be quite so hard if you’re taking time away from your daily struggles to look for your daily miracles. So give yourself that time-out to go out there and give thanks to the little miracles that are all around you. Remember, tiny moments when added up can lead to big changes.

As workers, caregivers, parents, and spouses … our day-to-day jobs are endless and so many times the tasks we take on are thankless. We get mired down by our daily grind and focus only on our “To Do” List. Our worries and fears are font and center in our minds each day, so much so that deep down inside we’re thinking to ourselves, “Is this it? Is this the best my life is ever going to be? How did it come to this? This isn’t what I wanted or signed up for.”

Our thoughts and actions create the perspective we have of ourselves and of the world around us. The most powerful force we have to living A Better Life® is the power of positive thinking. When we do NOT allow ourselves to become drained unnecessarily by all the negative things in our lives, life gets better.

I know. I know. There’s a lot of negativity all around us right now. Each and every day. I get it. It’s been a tough year for sure and it’s hard not to get caught up in the news or dragged down by the Coronavirus Pandemic and the implosion it’s caused in our lives. Life is changing rapidly in the world around us and so much of it feels like its spinning out of control. It’s like the world has gone mad. You may not be able to change the circumstances around you, or the thoughts, behaviors & actions of those in your life, but you can work to change the way you think about them and the way you react to them. You cannot stop the waves of life sometime, but you can learn how to surf and go with the flow.

So, begin looking for the positive things in your life today. Things that will help you lead to a more abundant life. Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it will powerful thoughts, your life will start to change. So, here’s to finding your many miracles of life! Get up and get going. Turn the news off and the possibilities on.

What Doctors Never Tell You … But REALLY Should !!

How well you’re able to communicate with your Doctor is one of the most important parts of getting superior health outcomes. Advocating for yourself or a loved one isn’t always easy, because time is very abbreviated during typical medical visits.

A good Doctor-Patient relationship requires you to show up prepared and make the most of your time together. That means asking good questions, clarifying information and making sure you understand all of their instructions.

It also means being able to articulate your concerns quickly, clearly and succinctly, and communicating any changes in your health. By taking a more active role, you can help reduce medical errors and avoid costly complications.

Doctors never really tell you HOW to best prepare or make the most of those 7.9 minutes that you actually get with them, on average, although they really should! Learning how to become a better patient will dramatically improve your relationship with your Doctor and lead to far better results.

As part of the Educational Training & Coaching Programs that I’ve been developing, I created this special Doctor Visit Guide to help make every moment count during these medical visits and I’m glad to share it with you.

It includes a wonderful “Advocating Approach” to follow when talking to your Doctor, as well as an important “Doctor Visit Checklist” that will show you what to do before, during, and after medical visits.

How many times have YOU left the Doctor’s office, only to realize on the ride home that you forgot to mention something really important that concerned you? I know how frustrating that can be! By following this Doctor Visit Guide, you’ll be sure to get all your needs met and questions answered.

Are You Prepared for Elder Care?

When most people go through major changes in life, whether it’s new parenthood, college, graduation etc., there is a period of learning and preparation involved. Ironically, when it comes to caregiving and elder care issues, that same preparation and attention to detail is just not there. Although the majority of us will be caregivers at some point in our lives, very few of us are prepared for the realities of that situation.

No matter where you live, aging is an expensive proposition. More and more frequently, parents are having to rely on their adult children to bear the expenses for their care. With Americans living longer than ever before and health care costs on the rise, it’s critical that we take the steps necessary to prepare for this time period, in order to avoid financial devastation. Having a Care Plan in place is essential for survival.

We help family members find the most affordable solutions for meeting their care needs.

Here is a heartwarming story from CNN about a daughter who is caring for her 96-year-old father with dementia, who now requires 24 hour care.
