Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive
101 Inspirational Stories about Counting Your Blessings and Having a Positive Attitude
This title is a continuation of the theme of our very popular past titles – Chicken Soup for the Soul: Count Your Blessings and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People. We are looking for stories of optimism, faith and strength to encourage our readers to think positive in these challenging times.

What was the situation that inspired you to think positive? What changes did you make in your attitude — from negative to positive — that turned your life around? These inspirational stories will remind readers to focus on hope and show them that each day holds something to be grateful for.

Here are some suggested topics, but we know you can think of many more:

    Attitude! It does make a difference
    The unexpected benefits of challenges
    Putting things in perspective
    Turning negative into positive
    How you spread the message of gratitude to others
    Lighten up and laugh!
    What made you realize that your life is good and that you are grateful
    Silver linings that you have discovered
    Appreciating the simple pleasures
    … Anything else that you think that is interesting and inspirational

If your story is chosen, you will be a published author and your bio will be printed in the book if you so choose. You will also receive a check for $200 and 10 free copies of your book, worth more than $100. You will retain the copyright for your story and you will retain the right to resell it.
