Step 3

What did you think of her courage to sing despite the audience and judges who were mocking her?

As you come to see that you already possess your positive traits, then possibilities begin opening up for you in all areas of your life, unexpected really good things.

Do you want to know how to fight to hang on to them so you can experience those opportunities we're talking about?

The rest of the 'Turning Heartache into Triumph' trail is designed to get you there.

For today start your positive turnaround by repeating those 3 good qualities about yourself whenever your thoughts - any thoughts - turn critical or worried.

Start now. Repeat your positive traits.
