Secrets of Success

Write The Positive



I have a journal that I write three positive steps that I took that day towards a healthier lifestyle. Sometimes, it's the only thing that I write in the journal, sometimes I write more. But if I'm ever feeling down or need a reminder on how far I have come, I can look at that journal.

  • We have a positive board at work. Here we write positives about the children we work with, and co-workers. I post little positives on my co-workers lockers...especially if I hear them having a rough day. The positive notes have made a real improvement in the work environment. More consentration on positives than negatives. - by WARRIORGIRL9
  • Great idea! Three positive things every day to help you get healthier adds up to a whole lot of healthier living. Using past successes to motivate you for future successes -- great! It's like SparkPeople streaks, but doesn't have to be the same thing every day. Doing different things and balancing is probably better than doing the same things. I like it. I like it a whole lot. Not that I'd break any of my current streaks, now..... - by SLENDERELLA61

  • I really liked your comments; sometimes we forget how really blessed we are to even be concerned about our weight when so many people in the world are gong hungry. - by GREATGRANNY10
