Benefits of postive thinking

I think it’s important for children to develop these positive mental pathways early in life because it helps them lead a more rich and fruitful life. As adults we known that we have experiences that are negative every single day. But I find that the more successful people that I run into are people who can turn these negative experiences into a positive. One good example of that that I see every day in the Children’s Hospital are kids that are born every day with diseases that they never asked for but they have to deal with. And what I’ve witnessed is that these children are the most positive in the hospital, because they know that unless they’re positive, things can be very, very negative. And so they actually bring the spirit of the whole hospital up. And it’s a very uplifting experience.
