 Each month, Thrive Consultant, Sue Tetley, will be bringing you a tip to help you make the most out of your life. Here she offers advice about the power of positivity..

  • Process your positives each day. Write a list of what you have achieved. Update this a few times a day on paper, your phone or computer. For each item think about why this was a good thing. What made this a positive experience and what would you say to others who had achieved this. Examples include: 
    • Walking the dog
    • Doing some housework
    • Going for a walk
    • Going to the gym
    • Contacting a friend you haven't spoken to in a while
    • Getting a new client or business contact
    • Getting something done that you have been avoiding


As you can see, this list doesn't have to include running a marathon, passing a test, walking 10 miles. Most people just think about all the things they need to do rather than what they have actually achieved. We often dismiss all our achievements thinking that's something I should do anyway. 

It's important we are able to boost our own self esteem, rather than it being reliant on what others say to us. This exercise really helps.


  • Write down what kind of day you want. Don't wait until mid-afternoon to realise your day is not going to plan. Decide first thing in the morning,  or even the night before. Visualise and imagine what you want to happen. Take control.


  • Each day think about what you are grateful for.. This will help put things into perspective and make you think about what you have, rather than what you want
  • Savour each moment, rather than thinking about the past or what comes next. You end up missing out on the here and now
