Is it possible to be too positive?

One of my clients asked me if I ever say anything negative to any of my clients, and he is constantly poking fun at me for always being so positive.  And the answer I gave him was “hmmm good question, I don’t think so”?  And besides why would I?

My job is to help motivate people to be more active and teach them how to live healthier and happier lives. Pretty awesome right?  Maybe that’s the reason I am always so positive?! Is it fake? NOPE! Am I generally a very optimistic person? YES! Do I complain at times? Of course I do, I am human after all.  Do I have low energy days when I don’t feel like leaving the house? Very rarely.  Do I see the positive in almost every situation? I try my best to.  Have I always been this way? Probably not but I try not to think about what I was like in the past or worry about what I might be like in the future, this is the power of living in the present.  I focus on my current physical, mental, emotional state and what is happening at this very moment.  If you live this way and change your negative mindset to a more positive one, you’ll notice that most of your worries and negative emotions will go away.  It takes practice but spend a little time with me and I can help show you how.

So to my client who is annoyed or not convinced that my constant positive attitude is genuine and laughs at my never ending “Wow! That was awesome” compliments, I guess you’ll have to suffer through your sessions because this positive and happy go lucky trainer isn’t going to change! I can’t help it, I love my life and my clients.  I feel truly blessed to be able to do what I love every single day and come home every night to a man who I know loves me unconditionally, and be surrounded by so many amazing amazing people (friends, family, clients).  It sounds totally cheesy but it is very true, LIFE IS GREAT!

I found this awesome ‘positivity pledge’ when I searched “the power of positivity” online…

LOVE THIS!  I think we should all follow this pledge, who is with me?  Sounds pretty awesome right?

I hope everyone had an AWESOME day…
