The positive dog: a story about the power of positivity
Discover the benefits of being positive.
We all have two dogs inside of us. One dog is positive, happy, optimistic, and hopeful. The other dog is negative, mad, sad, pessimistic, and fearful. These two dogs often fight inside us, but guess who wins the fight? The one you feed the most. So begins the story about a negative mutt named Matt and a big dog named Bubba who teaches him how to feed himself with positivity each day and in the process Matt transforms his own life and the shelter they call home.
The Positive Dog is an inspiring, heartwarming story that not only reveals the strategies and benefits of being positive but also an essential truth for humans: Being positive doesn't just make you better. It makes everyone around you better.

|display_description||"An inspirational fable that guides you to use positivity to reach your goals. In a pet store, there lives a negative dog. He's constantly growling and barking--no wonder no one wants to take him home! One day, the "big dog" of the store takes him aside and explains that he has two choices: continue to be the negative dog that nobody wants, or become the positive dog that will lead to a better outcome. Whichever one he "feeds" will grow. In this delightfully illustrated business fable, the big dog teaches the negative dog how to feed positivity each day. As the negative dog puts these lessons into practice, he learns how to change his attitude in order to be his best.The lesson? When you become positive, you not only change yourself, but you also turn a toxic environment into a happy place that improves the lives of those around you. This inspirational fable teaches readers how to develop a positive attitude in order to reach goals Jon Gordon's international bestseller, The Energy Bus, has sold more than 200,000 copies since 2006 Reach your potential by summoning your inner positive dog.
