The Tipping Point

On our Yahoo chat loop, we Minxes recently had a conversation about how to stay positive all the time. Since quite a few of us were having a really tough time that week, it was a question none of us could answer.

But the universe provides just what we need when we need it.

The very next day, during my long commute to the day job, I plugged in my Ipod and out floated Rhonda Byrne's voice (The Power audio book). She was talking about The Tipping Point.

Here is what she said [as para-phrased by me]:
In order to change your life for the better, you only have to feel good 51% of the time. Because that is the tipping point. That is the point at which you feel good more of the time than you feel bad.

So if we can just stay positive for 51% of the time, we can start to change our lives for the better. And because our lives are changing for the better, we'll feel good more of the time, causing our lives to improve even more. What a wonderful spiral to get on!

For the next couple of Mondays I'll be sharing tips on how to boost feeling good and being positive. Any and all suggestions will be gratefully received.


  1. Nice post. Here is one I did about the book "The Tipping Point"

  2. Thanks for the comment, Carol. Having read your blog post, I've just bought Malcolm Gladwell's book and look forward to reading it.
