Leading a happy and successful life requires us to make healthy choices, think positively and believe in ourselves. Taking the wrong action or taking no action leaves us frustrated, feeling powerless, hopeless and stuck. When we change our thoughts we change our lives. If our thinking is negative the outcome is negative. When we think positive the outcome is postive.
