"Appreciation, as Mike Robbins knows, is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. Focus on the Good Stuff is an important book that can dramatically enhance your life." —Jack Canfield, author, The Success Principles We live in a culture that focuses on the "bad stuff." We're constantly bombarded with negative messages from the media, advertisers, politicians, and even the people around us. Worse yet, many of us are so critical of ourselves that we're our own worst enemies. But help is on the way. Focus on the Good Stuff offers a plan for dispelling the cloud of negativity that surrounds us. Mike Robbins has created a powerful yet simple new approach for mastering the one thing we need most of all to achieve authentic happiness and be of service to others—that is, to practice the art of appreciation. Appreciation allows you to improve your relationships, create greater success and fulfillment, and experience a deep sense of gratitude for yourself, for others, and for life itself.
