Thinking Positive To Change Your Life

I am a strong believer that you can change your life by creating positive thoughts.  Hence the reason why I started this website to help others achieve their dreams and think positive thoughts.

Was I always this way?  No.  My story starts about 20 years ago (give or take a few years:)).   I had just finished up jackies-baby-picturemy 8 weeks of maternity leave and was heading back to work.  Prior to having my daughter, Jackie, I always thought that I wanted to be a “career mom”.  That all changed when she came into my life.

At the time, I was working 9 to 5 at a local technology company handling customer orders and marketing.  It was a nice enough company but wasn’t very flexible if you were late to work.  Now, I never had any issues being late to work but now with a newborn; I worried about us both getting out of the door on time.  As a matter of fact, I was stressed out about it.  Plus the guilt I felt for leaving her.

So I approached my husband about working part-time so I could spend more time with Jackie.  He said, “Sure, as long as you can make the same amount of money”.

I think back now and, at the time, I had one goal on my mind, how to work part-time, make the same amount of money and spend time with Jackie.    Failure was not an option or a “blip” on my radar.  I was going to do it.

Sure enough, less than two months later, I gave my notice.  Which started me on my path to selling products over the phone for a .com company during the late 90s.  I was working 32 hours a week and had increased my pay by 20%.  That was only the tip of the iceberg.  The next year, I double my income and the year after that ended up tripling my income.

All because I believed in creating positive thoughts to change my life to live the way I wanted it.  Every morning before I started my day, I would focus my thoughts on what I needed to do to create the job and life I wanted.  I also kept a notebook dedicated to this process.  Hence, the reason for starting this website . . . to help other folks achieve their dreams and think positive thoughts.

If you’ve had similar experiences that have changed your life for the better, I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Super job Debbie!! So happy that you are creating this website to help many others!!

  2. You are a wonder.. I can’t wait to see how far you go. The skies the limit! Positive thoughts can change the world!

    1. Debbie. What an inspiring story. I concur with your approach to being positive and believing what you think to drive positive energy. I had a defining moment in 1998 when my first son, Ian, was born by emergency C-section. We were faced with the heart wrenching decision to pull life support 5 days later. We have 2 choices in life. We can either wake up and embrace the day moving our lives forward or wake up complaining about what has happened to us and stay stuck in the past. I know you. You are a survivor, with positive energy and forward thinking. You have a gentle spirit and this website is a labor of love. I will happily share with my friends!

      1. Carolyn, thank you for sharing the difficult decision you had to make with Ian. My heart goes out to you! You’re right, life is what you make it:).
