The P-O-P? It’s the Power Of Positivity, y’all—but I’m not talking about cheesy affirmations and singing Kumbaya around a campfire (although cheese is delicious and campfires are awesome). I’m talking about the kind of positivity that’s REAL…and the man who wrote the book on it.
But first, a prelude: The other day I got to thinking about spiritual leaders and motivational speakers—you know the ones: Tony Robbins, Malcolm Gladwell, Eckhart Tolle—the people whose books we read, whose seminars we attend, whose words of wisdom change our lives. I wondered, What goes through their minds on a crappy day? Hell, what goes through their minds period?
And then I realized, Duh, one of my best friends happens to be in the same industry as these dudes. Why don’t I ask him?
So I’m gonna.Cornell Thomas , former basketball star turned author and motivational speaker , not only lives a life of positivity , he’s teaching the country how to do it too. Through his seminars , book , blog , and daily quotes , thousands of people look to Cornell for sunshine in their lives. The fact that he’s friends with ME should tell you how charitable this man really is, so join the confab this week as I pick the brain of an inspirational leader.
