Think positive.


Think positive: Talk positive.

It's easy to find faults in other but don't go down that road. The best way is reward or positive reinforcement.

Nobody ever erected a statue to a critic. Jean Sibelius

If you can't say anything nice, don't say nothing at all. My Grampa John

Two words to remove from you vocabulary. Just and But. The word Just changes any statement into an apology.

But is negative reinforcement, replace it with the word "And"

Say "I will!" not "I'll try?"

Try writing statements with these words in them. Then remove or replace. Read out loud. Can you see the difference between Positive and Negative Reinforcement?

After thought: Remove from you vocabulary "That's not my job." You figure it out.
