I'm Taryn Winter. Brill, We're here with Brian Hazel grin. He is the author of Positive People Make Things Happen. Exclamation Point. It's great to have you with us again. Thank you tearing good to see you here so This is your 16th book. It is. Wow, That's incredible Beyond words. Congratulations. How do you decide what to write about? Well, actually, we found out that there was a market need. So I'm in the health and wellness business. Our company focuses on healthy products, healthy services. Even the color of the book is based on healthy colours, blue, green and orange. No kidding. Are literally according to science. Healthy colours make us feel better. So we found out that when we were talking to a lot of people in our system There was a lot of negativity like over the top negativity. And so I thought, well, At the time I wrote started writing the book. I was having some challenges in my own personal life. And I started thinking Well, what makes me happy? What? Because happiness is really a choice. Mhm. How do I get myself to that level of feeling happy? And then also, how do I motivate myself to be positive? So I just started writing down positive affirmations. One thing led to another. All of a sudden we had over 100, positive affirmations and We decided to write a book the second thing on this one. Then we said, Well, the book is great, but is there a training system that we can actually move people into and take them through? Sequences of actually finding that level of positivity that they actually have within them, But they may not know about right. So it's called How high is your PQ? That's kind of the companion guide to this. What do you mean by PQ? Positive quotient. So like, how high is your I Q Your intelligence quotient? I looked at it from the standpoint of Well, Are we at a one? Or we had an eight We had a 10. And the answer is we fluctuate all the time. What's the scale of 1 to 10? Okay, so 10 being the highest one being lowest. And in many cases will find even in our own personal lives that today I might be a too sure. Well, why is that? Well, there might be many mitigating factors, too, that it could be our diet could be our exercise could be traumatic event or thing that happened in her life. But the point is at that point in life. We have to step back. Take a breath. And literally think about Well what? What makes me positive. What makes me happy? And there's a section in the study guide that talks more about having a gratitude list. That's one area. There's also a section about the type of supplements that actually helps reduce stress and exercise. How it helps reduce stress, So it's not just Polyana type attitude of always trying to be the most positive person in the room. It's a combination of many different things that we looked at, and I started just Writing down things and trying to figure out moving from one element to the next. How can we get to that whole? Realm of positivity and actually maintain that balance in our life instead of jumping from a two or even a one all the way up to attend. How do we find the oil is to try to keep some sort of kind of baseline? Yes. And Brian. The workbook has 10 attributes of a positive person, which is great. Just give us one or two. That kind of stick out. Probably the one that's easiest to talk about is trying to see the good in everything. Sometimes there are things that happen in our lives that we don't have control of, and we may look at that and say my life is completely utterly devastated right now. Yet there might be a bigger picture, which would be another attribute of a positive person. Let's look at the bigger picture. But let's also try to see the good in something even when we're dealing with people one on one They may be negative. They may even be completely selfish and only want everything focused on When kids need medical care, they will often face stressful and life changing experiences from complex treatments. Long hospital stays. These special patients miss out on the things that most kids take for granted.
