Many years ago, I remember thinking “why isn’t there a newspaper that only publishes good news.”
Depressing headlines about awful crimes, politicians more interested in their own future than that of our country and corrupt humans taking liberties against good people, bombard us on an daily basis. The negativity soaks into your bones. Not a great way to get through the day.
The glass is more than half full
But, something extremely positive popped into my inbox this morning from Alison Reid. Alison is a leadership expert, speaker, coach and author, who I met a few years ago when we chatted about marketing for her business.
I always enjoy reading Alison’s eNewsletters. Today she introduced me to Positive News, a magazine where journalists write about good things that are happening.
For example, rather than banging on about the gloom and doom around climate change, the magazine is bursting with amazing things that people are doing to address the issue.
These positive stories can help you too
Apart from a good feeling this magazine brings, how can it help you in your business?
I have 36 Google Alerts providing me daily emails with links to stories and articles that I can share on social media on behalf of my clients or myself. As with news websites and daily papers this produces a plethora of negative ‘stuff’ that I really don’t want to share.
Now, thanks to Positive News, I have a website I can go to and find a wide range of inspiring and optimistic stories. Take a look and find the stories that are relevant to your followers, spread positive vibes, bring a smile to their face and show how much you care.
When you send positive vibes, you’ll be surprised what you get back.
More positive news!
