bonita springs: The Season of Darkness, The Spring of Hope - 04/15/20 06:41 AM
I like to think that I have a personal board of directors. 
You know, that group of people in your life who form the innermost circle of trust.
You're A-Team. Your posse. Your ride or dies.
People smarter than you.
The people who know much about your most personal and confidential "stuff."
 
Today, I am sharing an intriguing passage authored by Frank Hujsa, one of those personal board of directors.
Frank is an owner at Acadium Financial in Bonita Springs, Florida.
We can only imagine the kind of drama that he and his partners have been dealing with over the past six weeks.

My 11 day experience outlined by Jon Gordon in his book "The Positive Dog," has reached Day 10.

In his book, Gordon cites that "according to Barbara Frederickson, author of "Positivity", research shows that spending time in nature boosts your positivity—especially when the weather is good.

bonita springs: Day 4 Feeding the Positive Dog — Celebrate your Success of the Day - 03/09/20 06:01 AM

Gordon's book explains that "according to sports psychologist Jim Fannin, the last 30 minutes of every waking day is recorded and replayed that night by our subconscious minds 15-17 times. This replay occurs 5 times more often than any other thought at any other time."
That's an amazing subconscious behavior to be aware of that … (1 comments)

bonita springs: Day 3 Feeding the Positive Dog - More Smiles and Laughter - 03/08/20 10:17 AM
In a post earlier this week I announced that I was joining a group of professionals from the GROW Business Network in experiencing the 11 day challenge outlined by Jon Gordon in his book "The Positive Dog."
Day 3 of the journey asks us to seek out more smiles and laughter.
Gordon cites that "children laugh about 400x a day while adults laugh only about 25x," and "research shows that smiling produces more serotonin in your brain and laughter reduces stress, increases your immune system and causes your body to release “feel good” endorphins."
Today's challenge is to seek out humor to cause laughter and smiling for at … (4 comments)

In a nutshell, being thankful is good medicine and good for a positive life. Today as you live, work, interact, shop, drive, etc. turn off the … (4 comments)
