Moving From SHOULD to WANT to CAN – Jean Moroney


It’s so easy to get caught up in negativity sometimes. It seems like we are bombarded with it on social media, television, in our workplaces and sometimes in our own relationships. You may not have realized it, but some of the negatives in your life can actually do you some good. No, I’m not saying you should wish for negatives in your life, but if you have them, you may actually be able to use them for good!

My guest today is Jean Moroney, a speaker and the president of Thinking Directions. She teaches professionals how to use targeted thinking to solve problems and achieve their goals. Jean offers many courses and resources on her website. Today we’re talking about moving from SHOULD to WANT to CAN and how negatives are really positives in disguise. Come and learn how to improve YOUR thinking! img_1248
