"Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life."

Ever Been Down in the Dumps?
If you’ve ever been “down in the dumps,” you probably had help getting there! We all have friends, relatives, co-workers who can change our mood in record time, simply by stopping by and unloading a barrage of negativity. No matter how good of a day you might have been having, suddenly the world is piled high with garbage.
What’s the natural reaction? Share back! Before you know it, the lid is off your personal trash can, and you’re dumping out your personal negativity. Boy oh boy, now it’s your turn to talk about how bad you have it, right? Check this out! *SPLAT!*
The funny thing is, you may not feel much after that exchange. Itemizing what makes you unhappy rarely makes you any happier. And now you’ve got somebody else’s moldy thoughts piled on top of your own.
Even if you can hold yourself back from exchanging woes, it’s hard to defend yourself against the negativity of other people. It’s natural to be sympathetic, to lend an ear, but there’s a fine line between sympathy and becoming a carrier of someone else’s load.
And it’s even harder to avoid dumping on others when you’re troubled. You may err on the side of silence, deciding to hold it all in, rather than burden a friend. Or perhaps you naturally fling out all the bad points of your day, not realizing your listener is staggering under the load!
Fortunately, there is a positive way to deal with negativity, and I happen to know an expert on the subject! I’m excited to have David J. Pollay joining us at the “It’s All About Women” retreat! As a syndicated columnist, author, and business consultant, David Pollay has helped people around the world overcome the cycle of negativity. His book, “The Law of the Garbage Truck” is an international sensation. It’s truly an honor to have him among our keynote speakers!
Watch my YouTube video about David, and learn more about our very special weekend! Please join us at Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan, WI on April 27-29! Space is limited, so sign up today for the “It’s All About Women” retreat !
