    Hello BHW! There's some days that it's completely difficult for me to stay positive regarding work I'm doing. I've been very negative lately and figured out that I just have a negative outlook to begin with.

    What are some ways to remain positive? Recommend some books and audio books if you can!

    Well, for me it all started after watching a movie called "The secret".
    Call it placebo, but I could see differences in how people react to me a day after watching it and since then I have never looked back.

    An option not available to everyone and even for those that are, isn't always ideal - but when it works it WORKS.

    What I do is exercise or get some kind of movement going through the day. It helps release those endorphins that keep you positive.
    Oh and get out and get some sun shining on you.

    This video blows my mind how perfectly he discribes how majority of us acts exactly how he tells. Happiness is to be lined with the present moment. I know it needs practice...Ill do it tomorrow. :D

    - Take a break from what is not giving the desired result. Change of scenery might refresh your mind.
    - Do some sort of sport or go to the gym. Exercise might re energize.
    - Read blogs / forum about your subject matter; especially from people whom have been a success in what ever you want to be doing.
    - Go out and find a girl/boy friend and release it all in a aggressive bed session. :p
    - Eat good food
    - Remap your goals and get organised so you have better idea of what you should be focusing on
    - Clean up your work space or where ever you are doing your work.

    Copy all the checks/money you get from IM and post it over your computer to remind you to work your ass off daily.
