Healthy Mindset Lesson From My Friend

successful people have developed the mindset - optimistic and encouraged

My friend Cindy recently told me about how her two toddler grandchildren just loved a book their aunt had given to them.

As she shared more about the book, it sounded like great wisdom for a healthy mindset. We did a search on YouTube, watched the video of the book together, and loved it!

There’s a powerful lesson in the book, and I believe some of you will love it, too. A powerful lesson for anyone looking to achieve great results in ANY area of life. (See the video below)

Please don’t discount it simply because it’s a book written for kids. It’s a playful way for people of any age to learn or reinforce a life-changing message.

If you truly master the lesson in the book: you’ll have a healthier mindset, you’ll positively impact your overall wellness, and you will have mastered one of the keys to success in everything  you do.

Arnold Palmer said, “…Remember, whatever game you play, 90 percent of success is from the shoulders up.”

Click below to watch the book as it’s narrated on YouTube. Pay close attention to the thoughts Pete the Cat is thinking throughout the book — the voice inside of his head. 

What does the voice inside your head say when things don’t go exactly as planned, or when you face disappointments?

And YES, since tomorrow is the 4th of July and we’re thinking of the colors of our flag here in America, there’s actually a bit of red, white, and blue in the book. You’ll see what I mean. 🙂

Oh, and if you’ve watched the video by now, you probably noticed it’s not a new message. Just a slightly different way to look at it. It’s actually wisdom from the best selling book of all time:

“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones (saps a person’s strength).” — Proverbs 17:22

Lastly, if you’ve ever had whinerphobia (fear of being a whiner — one of the Debbie Downers of the world who dampens everyone’s day), you can come back to the video if you feel like you’re sliding into a bit of a slump. 🙂

If you have a chance, let me know how the video helped you or someone else to master this success principle, to share the concept with others, to geek up the voice in your head, etc.

Not sure about you, but I need reinforcement on this and every other success principle every day in one way, shape or form!

Happy 4th of July to you & yours!
