Danea Horn, Certified Life Coach, speaker, author, and over 30-year chronic disease patient herself, has released a new Special Report, “How to Develop a Positive Attitude When you are Coping with Illness.” This complimentary Special Report outlines Danea’s proven 5-step process to develop an authentic positive attitude that can have a measurable impact on people’s stress levels and health. It is now available for download, free of charge, on her website, http://www.DaneaHorn.com.
After being born with a rare disorder that prompted ten corrective surgeries before the age of two and resulted in managing chronic disease all of her life, Danea Horn personally knows a different kind of positivity. She believes that positivity is not about pretending that everything is great.
“Being positive is not about deluding yourself into believing that roses don’t have thorns. Real, authentic positivity is about taking responsibility, controlling what you can control, and recognizing the truth,” shares Horn. “‘Pollyanna is out, and truth, action and discipline are in.”
According to the American Psychological Association's most recent study, 64% of the population recognizes that managing stress is important, but only 32% of people are doing well at stress management.
Continues Horn, “Excessive stress is causing people to over eat, over TV and under exercise. The kicker is that, in most situations, stress is not an external threat. Stress is closely related to how you perceive your world; in essence, how positive you are about your life. And chronic illness is on the rise because most people, especially given the current economic climate, don’t have an optimistic outlook, and, as a result, are not taking care of themselves.”
After being asked by numerous doctors what makes the difference between her outlook and level of her own health management, compared to other patients they treat that give up, Danea decided to become a life coach to help other chronic illness sufferers, their caregivers and family members, cope with and manage their circumstances. This then lead to her writing her complimentary Special Report.
Aside from providing coaching services, Danea is also an in-demand speaker. The clients and audiences she works with experience measurable benefits by implementing Danea’s tips and strategies for creating a balanced, healthy and productive life.
Karen Penfold, Managing Director for eWomen, recently hired Danea to speak for their organization and had this to say about her popular presentation, “Danea’s presentation went beyond my expectations, with her well crafted handouts, relevant personal examples, and the concrete action steps and advice she provided. So often speakers may have a lot to say on a subject, but then don’t leave us with something we can readily apply to our lives and business. I told Danea that that was important to me and she delivered! I received ‘rave reviews’ about her from my members, who found her and her speaking style authentic, relatable and delightful. We look forward to having her back!”
Danea Horn’s unique expertise and philosophy has also attracted media attention, and as a result she has been featured in, or written articles for, numerous media including: Goodness Magazine, Renal Life Magazine, MontysCorner.org, GirlsontheGrid.com, BizyMoms.com and Kris Carr’s website CrazySexyLife.com.
