In this video I get to sit down with my old schoolmate Bernadette Cole, and she explains what she does to think positive thoughts and run a successful business. Bernadette is a franchise broker for several Exit Realty offices and knows the importance of keeping a positive state of mind for herself and her team. She is certainly living the American dream, in fact, her husband used to fly Air Force Two and is an accomplished pilot. She has supported me and my mission to spread the positive word around across the world, and for that, I am sincerely thankful.
It’s an interesting and simple thing being positive. When you surround yourself with positive people, you feel more positive about your life. The same holds true for negativity, if you hang around negative people, you’ll become just like them. So do your best to be around positive people, and if all of your friends are negative, then be alone. It is better to be alone and in a positive spirit, than be with a group of people that are negative. Seek out like minded positive people and your unlimited successful future is guaranteed! Also read great positive books like The Power of Positive Thinking, Think and Grow Rich, Three Feet from Gold, and a number of other inspirational and motivating books. Whatever you want to be or become, chances are high that someone that has already done it and become successful has written a book about it. Read that book! I love the saying “leaders are readers” because it reminds me that I need to continue to read more and more every day.
If you know of anyone that should be recognized for their positive attitude, please contact me so that we can keep this positive vibe spreading. And get some Positive Pins™ to wear or share!

Thanks Jonathan for the sweet post. Very cute video of you and your schoolmate 🙂 I remember after entering my senior year of college, I decided to make a complete change in the group of friends I associated with. I decided it was time to seek out people who loved ME (not those I would seek approval FROM). It turned out to be the best year of my entire college experience and looking back, it’s no wonder. The positive encouragement that I was blanketed in every time I hung out with my new found friends gave me the confidence to feel good “in my own skin”. Thanks and take care!

Thanks for your comment Jason, I value all feedback that I get, especially positive feedback. I completely agree that when we surround ourselves with positive people, being positive is a lot easier. I’m glad to hear how your decision turned out. If there’s anything that I can do for you, please let me know.
