Meeting with Francis Landivar
During the regular meeting with Francis Landivar within the program “Way to success” at the “Book” library the conversation about positive thinking was continued. Everybody agreed that sometimes it’s very difficult to feel happy because of many problems and it seems that only because of our problems we are unhappy. But without problems there is no development, they teach us to make decisions, make us wiser and more experienced. That’s why a root of unhappiness is not in problems themselves but in our attitude to them – that was the conclusion of this meeting.
Francis Landivar during his seminar “Positive thinking”
Director of the Charity partnership “Ruki pomoschi” Francis Landivar during his seminar “Positive thinking” within the program “Way to success” discussed with the participants how this kind of thinking and optimistic attitude influence our life. All together they came to conclusion that every person chose by himself either to be happy or not, and that negative thoughts lead to constant unhappiness. “Let’s not create unhappiness around us. – invoked Francis. – Be a better version of yourselves!”
