This alignment would energise you each morning with a positive and productive attitude for the day ahead .. in less than five minutes, as you ground yourself in your purpose and goals.
Appreciative Inquiry as a philosophy of life and a way to see the world, would transform your negative thoughts and beliefs that keep you stuck and unable to create the career you want. What else? The principles could equally be applicable to all aspects of life.
