My life has been an eclectic journey all leading and guiding me to where I am nowMy life has been an eclectic journey all leading and guiding me to where I am now.  My family patterns started out with parents that did not have emotional constructs on how to be able to love me the way I needed to be loved. That propelled me on a lifelong path, one that awakened me to my own truths that I did not feel loved nor did I receive the recognition I wanted and deserved. I learned that they were not capable of what I needed, and were not wired to provide what was vital in a healthy relationship. My early childhood experiences were a vehicle to studying relationships. I observed how other people reacted to each other, how they treated each other, and how they felt respect.

Travelling through two previous marriages, and a number of occupations opened my eyes to different parts of life. The journey propelled me to get my marketing degree fifteen years after high school, which started my journey on personal development. I have studied personal development for one hour a day since 1989. Subsequently that motivated and boosted me into business development. That led me into fifteen years of unsuccessful MLM work because I didn’t fit into a box. I did realize that there was a system; however, it was rigid and I didn’t fit.

Throughout the process of self-discovery, I continued to look for ways to uncover and discover who Gary was. At that time, I shifted my priorities and went to massage school after 9/11. I realized there was more inside of me that I needed to share. I saw myself as a healer and teacher. During that period I worked through my ‘stuff’, which brought me to a place of love and enabled me to make a huge impact. I began to do massage for people with disabilities, one of the most fulfilling things I have done in my lifetime. Unfortunately after about four years the funding for that program was eliminated, eliminating about 95% of my income and emotional support that I received from working with my clients and their families. That experience thru me into a funk.

Inspirational messages have an optimsitic effect on lifeI fell into motivational and inspirational quotes, and I began to share them on Twitter. I started sharing motivational quotes with others, and to selfishly lift myself up.  People started responding and RT-ing, asking questions, making comments.

There was a Universal message, “Okay, Gary you got your coaching certificate ten years ago. This is your vehicle to coach.” I saw that experience as a positive opportunity because every single day people are remarking about the tweets. They would tell me how the message lifted them, and how it had an affirming, optimistic effect on their life. Now approaching six years on Twitter, there has been tremendous growth, touching lives every day, in some way, in a very positive way.

How can I help you sort through your experiences, to find how to shift those things that happened, and not dwell in the ‘poo’ and start looking for the ‘pony’ in all of it . . . and, create happy rides.

#GLTP Twitter PartyToday's Topic, #PositiveAttitude: I have learned to take all situations and turn them into something positive.  Paraphrasing Napoleon Hill – “There is a seed of good within every bad thing that happens to you”. I am always looking for the seed.

Today we will be discussing such topics as how we can embrace all of our emotions and still maintain a positive attitude, how the past can be healed with a positive attitude, how we handle ourselves when life is challenging, and more.

“There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.” ~ W. Clement Stone
