After struggling with self-esteem issues, Abbe Dembowitz came up with an idea to turn negative thoughts into positive affirmations through simple, inspiring photographs.
The Turn It Around Project is to provide a simplistic approach to a complicated problem: turn it around. In providing positive affirmations for negative thoughts through photographic expression, individuals will be able to gain a newfound sense of self. It is our objective to create awareness, establish community and garner positivity for the best and worst in us all.
Beautiful and encouraging photographs. Even if you can’t stop that first negative thought that pops into your head, you can change the second and third.
Meghan often finds herself worrying about outcomes entirely out of her control. She’s turned it around by learning to let go of what is simply out of her hands.
Mike, a rising star in the marketing industry, brings his all to school, work, and friendships. With all of his responsibilities, he often feels the pressure of disappointing others. Rather than using this to cripple him, Mike uses the fear as fuel to motivate him to become better than he was yesterday.
Gabby often feels taken advantage of by those around her, but today and every day she tries her best to stand up.

Friends, here are two things you should know about me:
1. I don’t enjoy unnecessary spending
2. I love learning stuff
But, uh, most online courses run $75-500. So that would be a preeeeeeetty expensive hobby.
Let’s talk about why I recommend Skillshare
- They bring in experts who haven’t taught elsewhere. Kate Arends of Wit & Delight fame teaches a course on personal + lifestyle branding, author and artist Elle Luna teaches how to use illustration to find your passions, Seth Godin (!!!) teaches a three-hour class on modern marketing!
- Each course includes class projects and community – so you’re not just half-watching a Youtube video while scribbling notes on the back of a receipt.
- Skillshare breaks up videos into bite-sized chunks so you won’t get overwhelmed. (How many times have you bought an online class but gotten overwhelmed by the density of the content and given up? I know I have!)
Well, I’m leaving you with no excuses: This Life Development Challenge, I’ve updated fantastic classes, webinars, tutorials, and videos that’ll help you learn new skills. Best of all, they’re free if you start your free month and after a few classes, you can cancel your membership so you don’t have to pay anything!
All of the classes on my list are appropriate for just about anyone who wants to learn about the topic (no fancy skills or special experience required!). So, choose one or more, and get ready to get to the next level in your life.
