10 Tips To Help You Become More Positive

#010: 10 Tips To Help You Become More Positive [Podcast]

I used to be the most negative person I’ve ever met. Most people who didn’t know me 5 years ago laugh when I say that. They are even more surprised when I tell them I struggled with serious depression for over 10 years!

The good news is of course that this is history. One of the biggest keys to my turnaround was in the area of developing the habit of positivity. There is no such thing as “positive people” and “negative people”. Trust me I’ve been both. There are only people who choose to be positive and people who choose to be negative.

In this podcast we’ll talk about 10 simple tips you can apply in your life to develop the habit of positivity in your life.

I’m back from the Middle East and after a great 4 days back home I’m out on the road again in England – I’m looking forward to seeing many of you this weekend!

I’ve been putting together my 2014 schedule recently, I will be travelling a little less this year and much of my year is booked up already! However I am looking to visit some new places this year and if you are interested in having me speak at your church, fellowship or ministry school please do contact me as soon as possible using my contact page and we’ll try make something happen!


As I said in the podcast. I’d love to hear from you.

If you are someone who has developed that habit of positivity in your life, what are some of the tips you have used to grow that outlook on life?

Or maybe you aren’t so positive, you perhaps really struggle with negativity like I did for so many years. If that’s you I’d love for you to commit to incorporate one or two (or all) of the tips above and let me know how you are getting on. I’d love to encourage and support you in your journey in anyway I can.

  1. I think point 5 is pivotal…even with all the others in place..having a victim mentality sucks the life out of all the others. If we are blaming, moaning, whinging, complaining, being irritated by others, easily offended..this all reveals a ‘victim mentality’.

    When we realised how much authority we have ourselves to be change-makers in our world – to respond appropriately and wisely,instead of reacting; when we realise and celebrate all we have through Christ, then we have the antidote to a victim mindset.

    • Amen Gill! Very good point that this is an extremely powerful point especially in the way it impacts the effectiveness of the rest of them.
