This short read provides a valuable jolt of positivity to its reader!

I'm a fan of Paul Brodie's books! I read his book Motivation 101 and was excited to see that he followed up with the book Positivity Attracts. The thing I most appreciate about Mr. Brodie's books is that he is not trying to be anything more than who he is. He openly and freely shares his struggles and journey, minus research and noise, so his readers feel less alone in their own struggles and can begin reflecting on how they might make changes. As Mr. Brodie states in his introduction, if the sharing of his journey helps just one person, that's what matters most to him, and I feel this throughout his books.
In Positivity Attracts, Mr. Brodie helped me to reflect on my own positive/negative thinking, but two stand out chapters for me were "Disconnect" and "Circle of Trust." In "Disconnect", Mr. Brodie shared the power of turning off technology every so often to practice tuning in. Through sharing his own 24 hour experience, I could definitely see why this is something I need to do more often to improve my positive thinking. He reminded me that I really do miss writing things using a pen and notepad. And in "Circle of Trust" he put into perspective the difference between the superficial "like" one receives on Facebook versus the depth of having a few really good friends that have your back and are willing to hang with you through thick and thin. Again, just a good reminder of what's really important in life.
I highly recommend this short read for anyone that needs a jolt of positivity and a reminder of how to include it in their own lives.
