Keeping positive is an important part of influence. In my book ‘How To Become An Influencer’ I talk about it in the section about W- Wins (Quick wins and keeping positive):
Being proud of yourself matters so much- most humans have a tendency to be too hard on ourselves. There is an important balance to find between being ambitious and being pleased with the progress you have made so far.
You need to try to be grateful for the things that you do have- try to have an attitude of gratitude. We all have things to be grateful for. Try to take pleasure in small things and savour all the amazing things that life gives you.
Today, a brilliant tool has launched to help you stay positive.
Called, ‘The Moments Journal’ it is a guided journal, with six carefully chosen, research-backed questions for you to answer every day. Three uplifting, real-life stories are included in the journal, along with some inspiring quotes to give you an extra boost of positivity.
Printed in the UK on FSC-certified paper, all proceeds from The Moments Journal will be reinvested into Good News Shared, so by buying a copy not only will you be boosting your well-being, you will also be helping more positive charitable stories from around the world be highlighted and celebrated.
Countless studies have shown focusing on positive moments, kindness and good news can increase your happiness and reduce your stress levels.
With a guided structure, tips on how to get the most from the journal, inspiring stories and positive quotes, The Moments Journal is a great way to end a busy day.
It’s a simple, quick and fun way to remember the highlights of your day that you might have otherwise forgotten, before you drift off to a restful sleep.
I have to give the (very big) disclaimer that this product is made by my brilliant wife Nisha! I’ve seen the difference her work highlighting positive charitable news makes and the great effect that writing down positive things from your day can have.

Taking care of yourself is really important. If you don’t, you won’t be an effective influencer, especially in the long term. If you care about being an influencer you need to realise that you need to care about yourself. You are your own ticket to the life you want, so you need to take this seriously.
Fit and healthy mind- you need to take the time to rest your mind and take some time off from the online world. Make sure that you take some time away from your general routines to be able to be strategic and just to give your brain a rest. Try meditation and mindfulness. Find whatever takes away your stress, from walking through the forest to a night out at the cinema….
While influence is all about other people, taking the time to look after yourself is crucially important, otherwise you won’t be able to do anything else.
The Moments Journal will help you keep positive, to appreciate good things in your life and to give you time for you in your day. Find out more on the site, hope you like it….
