I'm doing great! Some of Libby's comments about stopping negative comments from others turning into negative thoughts I could really relate too. Though the negative comments in my life aren't from newspapers or TV!!

No media talking bout me either but most def can relate to people being negative when they don't understand me...

Re: 30 Aug: Special guest: Olympic gold medalist Libby Trickett

So, asking you guys where does negativity come from in your life and how do you turn the negative into positive?

Re: 30 Aug: Special guest: Olympic gold medalist Libby Trickett

Turning negatives into positives is something I've alway struggled with, but the support of friends and family are essential to helping me feel more positive about myself.

 

Where do the negatives come from? Most often from myself! I'm my biggest critic!!!

Re: 30 Aug: Special guest: Olympic gold medalist Libby Trickett

Sometimes we turn those negative messages out there in the world into our own thoughts about ourselves. What’s the number 1 tip you’ll take away from Libby’s answer on how to stay positive focused?
