Throughout time, the power of a positive attitude has been taught and emphasized as a prerequisite to success. In this episode of Live On Purpose Radio, Dr. Paul is joined by bestselling author, Jon Gordon. Jon is the author of “The No Complaining Rule” as well as the international bestseller, “The Energy Bus.” In the midst of the barrage of negativity in our world, intentionally creating positive energy is a must for anyone who wants peace, success, and productivity. Several suggestions are given to create this effect in your life and to empower those around you; including the “thank you” walk, changing your thinking from “have to” to “get to”, and defining what it is that you love about your problem. A big part of living on purpose is choosing the positive – tell a positive story about your life!
