A spectacular sight seeing the sun illuminating the mountains this evening.

Positive 2

Back to exercise after a 2 week unintentional break, and the regular teacher was back after an illness so it was a nice class.

I am so glad the past week is behind me and still deep in gratitude for all that helped me. And so thankful this and several other chores are done.

A very special friend started seeing Frank after a traumatic and life changing injury. She was severly damaged physically and mentally. She has had to endure multiple surgeries and other medical proceedures. She will be permanently disabled in some areas. Her life has changed forever. The pain, frustration, disappointment and depression are a daily battle.

Frank Clayton is helping her deal with and accept her new life and limits. Frank is a gifted therapist. His skills plus his caring and compassionate manner have saved my friend’s life. He has always supported her and she has come to trust him completely. Her life is better and she is more capable and happy because of Frank.

Thank you for saving my friend, Frank.

Report from IPPA Conference, Day 2

Day two of the 2nd Congress of the International Positive Psychology Association was simply amazing.  I learned SO much!  At one point I laughed to my friend “Teacher!  My brain is full!”  Here’s a report of the day’s events:

It began with Ed Deci speaking about self-determination and its relationship to positive psychology – in other words: the self-fulfilling prophecy.  He showed scientific proof that believing that you are doomed and things will never get better can actually bring that about.  Using a simple analogy (of my own), if one is drowning and they really don’t think anyone will come to rescue them, they can behave based on this belief by not paddling and dying before help could arrive.  But Deci really wowed the crowd when he reported that studies repeatedly proved that external rewards kill off intrinsic motivation.  For instance, when we try to control our children either by giving them a reward for doing well (the carrot) or punishing them when they do not do well (the stick), we inadvertently are hindering our child’s innate love of learning!  You can bet I will be blogging more about this.

I have a injured back that often keeps me in bed all day.  I am so thankful that I have family close to help me with my kids. As well as an amazing husband that will happily do the laundry and dishes while I am in bed all day, knowing that I can use the help.  Plus I can still work from bed! 🙂

Wow!  Okay, today I took a big step by hiring a publicist to help get the word out about the Happiness 101 Webinar to Lower Suicide Rates in Utah.  This is sure to make sure there is good coverage for the Webinar but is a financial leap of faith since the Webinar will be free.  I always wanted a way to reach out to rural Utahns.  I have the right vehicle (Happiness 101) to truly help people and now I have the right publicist to get the word out.  Hey, she is the publicist for Lisa Cypers Kamen, so I can’t go wrong, right?  Today, I take the leap of faith knowing that Happiness 101 will save lives and I rejoice in the thrill of taking a big step forward.

Happiness 101 will hold it’s very first webinar starting in October.  If I’ve learned anything over the years, it is to ask for help when you need it and choose that help wisely.  I feel so grateful that my associate, Leyda, has agreed to help me out.  She is smart, savvy and resourceful.  It is great to have her on the team to make sure it goes smoothly.  With her help, I feel supported and assured that our first webinar will be a raging success.

Today I hired an administrative assistant. Her name is Alexis. I am very, very excited about not only having someone to help me with the paperwork but also getting more organized and streamlining my business. Alexis is everything I could hope for in an assistant. She is fun, smart, innovative, organized and just a bit of OCD. I am very excited about working with her. Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to meet her one day 🙂
