Goldie Hawn: How can I change a negative self image?

Well, Goldie Hawn may have an answer. She appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show to help Oprah solve some of our happiness issues.

Light Bulb MomentGoldie Hawn has been actively concerned about happiness as the founder of The Hawn Foundation. With the increase of school violence and youth suicide, Goldie Hawn founded the organization with the goal of teaching children how to better manage their stress and develop social and emotional skills in order to help them be more successful and find happiness in school and life situations.

What impressed me was Goldie’s profound insight she showed on the subject through a suggestion she gave to an audience member.

Oprah introduced us to an audience guest with the name Kendra or similar sounding, who described herself as a “glass half empty kind of girl.”  Her mother who was also present, said that if she hit the lottery for $100 millions, Kendra would “pee on her cornflakes every time.” Kendra would typically proceed to give her mother five reasons why that $100 millions is going to make her mother miserable.

Kendra expressed concern that she thought her negative self-image of having the “glass half empty” was getting in the way of her happiness.

Goldie suggested that Kendra look at herself instead, as a critical thinker, and not as someone who thinks that the “glass is half empty”.

Brilliant!  I will use that positive shift of attitude in my own life! Thanks Goldie!
