Mr. Rodriguez is a firm believer in the power of positive thinking. He states “how we process thoughts on a daily basis translates into behaviors.” So focusing on positive thinking on a daily basis is essential to exhibiting positive behaviors. Inclusive in all his therapy sessions he teaches patients how to put into practice the power of positive thinking. He teaches nine positive affirmations from years of listening to patient’s real life experiences. Mr. Rodriguez’s philosophy is “we all have the power within us to create our own reality. We can create a negative reality for ourselves or a positive one.” The choice is ours. He has written two booklets on the subject. One for adults’ Spanish edition. One especially for children English edition that can be used to teach children to be positive thinkers.
