Staying Positive in a Negative World

It’s often much easier to be negative than positive these days.  To be happy and successful in your career and life you must stay positive on a daily basis.  Doesn’t it seem when one thing goes wrong, the rest of your day follows the same path?  It’s up to YOU to decide to be positive; no one else is going to do it for you.  So here are some tips to create happiness:

Smile and laugh.  It’s been shown that the simple act of smiling or laughing lowers your heart rate which relaxes the body.  It also reduces stress, improves mood, increases alertness, creativity and memory!  Do whatever it takes to crack a smile or watch something funny on YouTube!  Here’s a cute one:

Surround yourself with positive people.  This is often hard to do in the workplace, but it’s crucial to your happiness!  It’s often said that people are the reflections of their five closest friends in many ways: behaviors, income levels, values and so on.  So be aware of who is influencing you!  And if you can’t change your friends, change your friends!

Express Gratitude.  Another easy way to increase your positivity is to express your gratitude for what you have and are happy for in your life now.  Every morning before your “to-do” list floods your brain, stop, close your eyes, and say thank you for everything you have.  This simple act will fill your head with love, and where love resides, fear and all other negative emotions cannot.

I challenge you to be a force of love in our universe!  Happy thoughts will attract more happy circumstances into your life!


National Day of Awesomeness

March 10th, the International Day of Awesomeness!

The International Day of Awesomeness is a celebration of awesomeness. So why March 10th?  It’s Chuck Norris’ birthday of course.  The ultimate awesome man!  People are awesome every day, frequently don’t realize it, and their feats of awesomeness are rarely recognized.  So let’s fix that, with a special day to both perform and celebrate feats of awesomeness!

The way to celebrate The International Day of Awesomeness is simple.   Just be awesome.  So on this day, I would like to dedicate this post to my good friend, and business partner Jerry Fisher!

No one can be perfect, but everyone can be awesome!  And Mr. Gerald Fisher executes this behavior on a daily basis!  He is going for his masters, successfully runs a Mexican restaurant, and internet franchise.  Has a part time accountant job, is a social media magnet, stays up to date in the entertainment industry, and permeates positivity!

Celebrate a little Jerry time today on this International Day of Awesomeness!

Awesome Jerry

Starting Out Strong!

Hello!  So this is my VERY first blog post!  I hope you find a little bit of yourself in me!  I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin, close to the big city of Milwaukee, with a jeans and t-shirt mentality.  I recently married the love of my life that pushes me and supports me in everything I do.  He’s an up north guy, who has a kind heart and inspires so many to live the life of their dreams!  I love being in the outdoors, traveling, being surrounded by friends and family, and am passionate about creating the best possible life God intended for me!

I’ve always had a business owner state of mind; the 9-5 job never enticed me, no matter what income goes along with it.  I’m a true entrepreneur.  I own a traditional business and all the headaches that go along with it.  What drives me is my internet business, shopdanib.com.  I’m building a business that will give me time and financial freedom to pursue my dreams.  My business is allowing me to focus on my passions of beauty, health, and traveling.  Best of all, I work with a group of people who have similar mindsets: positive, dream orientated and love helping others!

“Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can do what others can’t!” What are you doing today to get you where you want to be tomorrow?
