One of our clients was able to save the day.

I got a call from Mr. Pierre Michel Jolivert the other day. Thanks to his banner advertisement on fouye.com he was able to save someone an airline ticket to Haiti.

He received a phone call from a gentleman who told him that he as a 49-page document to send to Haiti faster than DHL could deliver it.

Thanks to the superb fax services offered Jolibel Multi Services, JolibelMultiServices.com, the gentleman was able to fax his 49-page document to Haiti without having to get on a plane and hand deliver it.

Advertising Works! We just proved it!

This is the slogan I borrowed of my client @ JMBPromo.com

Why Think Positively?

All of our feelings, beliefs and knowledge are based on our internal thoughts, both conscious and subconscious.

We are in control, whether we know it or not.

We can be positive or negative, enthusiastic or dull, active or passive.

You are what you think
You feel what you want

The biggest difference between people is their attitudes.

For some, learning is enjoyable and exciting. For others, learning is a drudgery. For many, learning is just okay, something required on the road to a job.

Our present attitudes are habits, built from the feedback of parents, friends, society and self, that form our self-image and our world-image.

These attitudes are maintained by the inner conversations we constantly have with ourselves, both consciously and subconsciously.

The first step in changing our attitudes is to change our inner conversations.

What Should We Be Saying?

One approach is called the three C's:

  1. Commitment
  2. Control
  3. Challenge

Commitment - Make a positive commitment to yourself, to learning, work, family, friends, nature, and other worthwhile causes. Praise yourself and others. Dream of success. Be enthusiastic.

Control - Keep your mind focused on important things. Set goals and priorities for what you think and do. Visualize to practice your actions. Develop a strategy for dealing with problems. Learn to relax. Enjoy successes. Be honest with yourself.

Challenge - Be courageous. Change and improve each day. Do your best and don't look back. See learning and change as opportunities. Try new things. Consider several options. Meet new people. Ask lots of questions. Keep track of your mental and physical health. Be optimistic.

Studies show that people with these characteristics are winners in good times and survivors in hard times.

Research shows that people who begin consciously to modify their inner conversations and assumptions report an almost immediate improvement in their performance. Their energy increases and things seem to go better.

Commitment, control and challenge help build self-esteem and promote positive thinking.

Here are some other suggestions.

7 Suggestions for Building Positive Attitudes:

  • In every class, look for positive people to associate with.
  • In every lecture, look for one more interesting idea.
  • In every chapter, find one more concept important to you.
  • With every friend, explain a new idea you've just learned.
  • With every teacher, ask a question.
  • With yourself, keep a list of your goals, positive thoughts and actions.
  • Remember, you are what you think, you feel what you want.
