How to Look for the Positive in Any Situation

Amanda Englishby Look for the Positive

The last time something really traumatic happened to you, how did you view it from a mindset perspective?  I’ll bet it was pretty negative, however you viewed it. It’s easy to in the thick of the moment think of it as a setback, and not even bother looking for a positive in the situation.  

But what if I said that you have full control of your mindset and how you frame your experience?  That’s what I’ll be discussing with today’s guest, Amanda Englishby. Amanda suffered traumatic child, sexual, emotional and physical abuse ranging from childhood through her young adult years.  She also suffered infertility, broken dreams, and eating disorders.  

As you’ll see by following along with our conversation, her ability to look for the positive in all these situations helped her heal.  You can do the same and our discussion will show you how.
