Extraordinary Insights:

"I’d like people to think about how they’re feeling right now. When you’re feeling awful, I’d like you to think about what you’re focusing on, because if you’re focusing on something negative, you will feel negative. Your focus is connected to your thought, so if you shift your focus in this moment, just shift it to something more neutral, positive, or something that’s working for you today, and in that moment -- you will feel better. If my clients are depressed, they are focusing on thing that aren't working, or are stressful or out of their control. So shifting your focus will lead to an increase in your happiness. A slight increase."
