There are three types of people in the world – Yes people, No people and Maybe people.

  • Yes people live longer, are more successful, are happier, have inner peace, and have more connections with others than either the no or maybe people.
  • No people (pessimists) tend to get sick more and are less productive than yes people.
  • Maybe people tend to spend their time, energy and resources striving for the approval and acceptance of others. As a result they have more and greater disappointments and frustration in their careers, relationships and life in general.

During this session Tim shares proven and contemporary approaches, ideas and techniques on how to overcome negative thoughts, and deal with negative people to spend more time and energy on life’s positives thereby achieving greater success & happiness.


Sooner or later we all face adversity, failure, disappointments and challenges that can send us into discouragement, despair and negative emotions, feelings and responses.

No one is immune to these life trials. Regardless of your age, gender, financial status or any other life circumstance we have a choice – let these external factors, circumstances or people control us or we can learn to control our reactions and response to them.
