PositivityChange Post Issue 47 – Do the Best That You Can Do

I hope that everyone is having a productive Monday and start to this week. This week I’m focusing on what happens when you’re stuck in a rut or your progress isn’t as fast as you would like. It happens to all of us. There’s a lull and it seems as if everything has slowed down and you’re stuck. What once worked, no longer does. Well, here are some articles that will help you get out of it!

PositivityChange Post : Issue 46 : Expanding Beyond Positivity

I am fresh off PositivityChange.com turning two years! I have ben reflecting a whole lot about the direction that I want the site to go. I am very happy that PositivityChange.com has conquered its mission and expanded into podcasting (Positive Change Radio). I am contemplating further expansion into doing a YouTube livestream. I have migrated my other Blogtalkradio show to YouTube Live certainly I can do the same thing with Positive Change Radio. I do think that this move would increase my reach since after 12 episodes of my other livestream show, I am gaining traction. I will keep you, the reader, posted on all of my developments to spread more positive change.

As always, follow us on PositivityChange Facebook page. Where we have even more ways to learn and experience positive change. Here is the video that I’ve shot celebrating PositivityChange turning two.

PositivityChange Post : Issue 44 : Keeping Pushing for Positive Change

My summer has been an eventful one. I am in the midst of seeking a new position. This job process has been different than previous ones. Some good, some bad. One in particular has been full of pits and valleys. I am a former government employee so I don’t have to fill out as much paperwork; however, that hasn’t stopped the snafus. I have been told that I haven’t been transferred from one system to another. Another mix-up comes when I submit the ready for work paperwork and the person cannot read the Adobe fillable PDF. My most recent peculiarity is that after giving my fingerprints to the agency, I will have to wait for 4 weeks to get my badge then return to give my fingerprints again. Needless to say, I have to keep finding ways to be positive.

Now, hopefully your job search or current job is nothing like what I am experiencing but just in case it is, here are some resources to help get you through:

Hey everyone!

It is getting very hot here in the US! Right now where I live it is boiling and will get even hotter as the week transpires! This issue is about keeping cool and staying healthy during summer (because NOT having a sun headache is ALWAYS positive!), While I am talking about shining bright, I am happy to announce that my article Increasing Your Career Savviness has gotten over 100 likes and 200 views on LinkedIn! I am overjoyed by the response because all I initially wanted to do was show people that the very same tools that big business used for your own personal career.

Now onto the summer health care:

The reason why I wanted to write this was to show people that you can use the same business tools and techniques that corporate America uses in your own life and career. I am extremely grateful that my article has resonated with readers. Here’s to spreading more positive change right now and in the future!

Spring Clean Your Digital Devices

Happy April everyone! Welcome to the second quarter. We here at PositivityChange hope that you are experiencing more positive change in both your personal and professional lives. We are still focused on spring cleaning. Most people think spring cleaning is confined to your house or your car; but, we live in a digital world and need to spring clean our devices too. This morning, I have migrated all of my project management videos from my phone to Google Drive. I have already posted them on Instagram and YouTube plus they are taking up data. I have them stored on the cloud plus I can start off my second quarter right with a clean slate! So here’s my reminder to you to start April and the second quarter by spring cleaning your digital devices. A clean slate = a clean break!

PositivityChange Post : Issue 27 : Staying Positive Past the First Quarter

Hey everyone! I know that I have been hiatus but for good reasons: a lot of positive things have been happening over here. I am very excited to return to PositivityChange because I know that you probably have been experiencing the same amount of positive change that I have. And, if you haven’t, well, that’s what this newsletter is for! Our mission is to help you manifest positive change in both your personal and professional lives. That’s also why I’ve named this newsletter ‘staying positive past the first quarter’.

Staying Positive Past the First Quarter

I know that for some, the New Year’s luster has worn off and 2017 is looking and feeling like 2016. That’s why I’ve included Positive Change Guru’s article about how 90-day goals will change your life. The editorial board wants you to have a better 2nd quarter than 1st quarter.

Freebie Alert : Positive Self-Talk Worksheet

If you need a more immediate pick me up, here’s a self-talk worksheet from my second favorite social media platform, Pinterest! This worksheet will help you navigate through all of the negative self-talk replacing it with positive self-talk. 

Be on the look out for more positive change articles on the blog site this week and April. We have a lot of articles, resources and podcasts coming this second-quarter!

This Week in PCM : 5 Ways to Stay Positive

When Negativity Rears Its Ugly Head, here are the five ways to stay positive!

We all have our ups and downs. No matter how positive we try to live our lives. We here at PositivityChange truly understand this which is why we provide resources to guide you through a rough patch. Here are my 5 ways to stay positive:

  1. Have a positive support group

Being superman is the worst thing to do right now. That’s what friends are for. And if your friends are responsible for the negativity, that’s what meet-ups and support groups are for! Find a positive support group that will help you through the storm. We have a Facebook group that will help you accomplish this.  

 

  1. Express gratitude

Be grateful for something, anything. Expressing gratitude stops the continuous negative thoughts. You don’t want to stay down. Expressing gratitude is the way to start climbing out of the pit of negativity.

 

  1. Find ONE thing that’s positive

I know that being a negative slump can be nasty at times. To halt the slide, find ONE thing that’s positive about yourself and your situation. Finding this one thing is your way of regaining control of the situation.

 

  1. Get some exercise.

Exercise is a way to shifting your energy. I walk every morning and it releases yesterday’s energy. In addition, I shift and re-center myself before work and the day gets started. Exercise has very good health and mental benefits. Moreover, exercise helps you focus on something different.

 

  1. Be pro-active and start planning your exit

You cannot stay negative because that’s regressive. You need to be progressive. Sometimes you have to leave your current situation when things don’t change. I know that it’s hard when it is a workplace. That’s why this step is planning your exit from negativity. Even if it is a lateral move to another department, get away from people, places and situations weighing you down.
