Positive thinking is the best approach to misfortune or challenge in life, right? Maybe not. Our psychology is the driving force behind everything we do, but there are external variables or triggers that influence you. You can’t control them…but you can control how you respond to them, and ultimately what they mean to you. Positivity is a way to avoid a problem but not always the best way to solve a problem.

As described in my program to accelerate productivity, Championship Psychology is not about eliminating the negative, but learning how to recognize it and adapt quickly. Awareness is power. If we understand the root cause of a challenge, we can overcome it quickly. The key is not to LIVE in the problem because if you do, your problem will continue to grow. David Corbin will share with us his techniques to confront, examine and fix problems.
