Be positive! Get rid of the negativity! Get a more positive attitude! Don't be so negative. Advice to get positive is often given. Yet most people don't know specific steps to build and maintain a positive attitude, strong self esteem, optimism and skills for feeling good. Positive attitude books and seminars tend to be inspirational pep talks without action plans. Positivity training is a systematic program with specific steps to turn on & enhance the positivity traits listed below.
Who benefits from Positivity Training? Anybody: health care providers, patients, teachers, employees, (execs, sales, customer service, marketing)
I'm already positive and I feel great. Can Positivity training help me? Just as athletes and artists pick up new techniques faster, positive people quickly benefit. They add new Positivity skills and fine-tune their feeling-good responses to feel and perform better than before, and learn to bring out the best in people around them.
Positivity Training teaches... how to build, increase and make more effective use of inner strengths. It is used by over 1,000 trainers, health care providers, managers, sales and customer service people and educators worldwide
Positivity training says good feelings and positive experiences are the most important parts of our lives-- the basic building blocks of inner strength, self esteem, positive attitude, capacity for happiness, and the ability to see more opportunities for more positive experiences and to cope with problems. The goal is to increase skills in all aspects of positive experience.
Positivity training moves you towards the best you can feel and function. It builds strengths, rather than analyzing, and emphasizing elimination of negativity. Positivity training assumes many negatives will simply be replaced by positive behaviors.
Positivity Training Outline
-Positivity and The Positive Experience (PE) Response
-The Six Facets of the Anatomy of Positive Experience
1- Prepare Mind and Body for PEs & good feelings; be comfortable feeling and expressing strong positive emotions. Maintain healthy habits, honesty, and positivity traits & be prepared to make the most of PE opportunities.
2- Plan, schedule, research, anticipate PEs; not just vacations & weekends; every day. Study your PE patterns, inner & outer resources, and your environment to build a PE knowledge base so you can zoom in on PE possibilities. Schedule challenges at work and play.
3- Systematic Positive Attitude Building; Recognize, identify, initiate and embrace PE opportunities; Sharpen skills for recognizing PE opportunities and initiating them most effectively. Develop a positive attitude that expects to find PEs & seeks them out.
4- Optimal Experiencing; Make the most of the moment Learn to boost PE intensity, length, complexity, and content m
aking them more meaningful and memorable.
5- Store, Keep, Retrieve Good Memories; Store the PE (in your brain, on paper, photo, audio, video, computer.) Integrate it into your memory, self-image and relationship with the world. Do a post PE stretch.
6- Clone Your Best Moments: Transplant Winning Behaviors and Feelings; Recycle your PEs to new situations and areas of your life.
-Inhibitors of good feelings and positive experiences;
take the Positivity inhibitor test.
Dealing with & Helping Negative People
Tens of millions of Americans have problems with depression, anger, anxiety, cynicism, pessimism, or expressing or feeling positive emotions. Their negativity profoundly affects their performance, relationships, and the people around them. They get sick more often and ruin the morale of the family, group, class or office. Positivity can help turn them around and help the people near them to cope with them more effectively. You begin to notice the change as they start sharing good feelings. They go from growling to glowing. Stress, anxiety and anger begin to disappear. Give it a try confidence and outright enthusiasm replace negativity.
What about Laughter, Humor & Stress Management?
Positivity training includes elements of all of these plus behavioral and cognitive self talk approaches. But most important, it is a comprehensive systematic approach to increasing one's positive aspects rather than just a quick fix for getting rid of unwanted behaviors, It is not just a brief entertainment (though it is fun and lively.) A warning we're proud of; *-Positivity emphasizes the heart, honesty, integrity, altruism and virtue as essential elements in being and feeling the best one can. It is not recommended for groups who want to maintain a "cut-throat" attitude in sales or competition.
