An App that makes you feel better

As a CEO of ThinkUp, a leading app for developing a positive mindset, I have come across many exciting success stories. For instance, I heard that ThinkUp has helped with symptoms of depression, changing people’s self-talk, and reducing anxiety symptoms.

Following a conversation with a woman who is taking care of her dying husband, I was glad to discover ThinkUp helped her overcome emotions of guilt as well as loneliness.

Additionally, I was delighted to hear of an Arabic woman who asked for a translation of the app to Arabic for her community. Her aim was to make sure that they did not miss out the chance to embrace peace and self-love in their heart.


However, the following story is the most exciting one for me:


Recently, I heard about a family who arrived at Stanford hospital for necessary heart surgery for their infant child.

Just before of the surgery, the infant had an infection. This complicated the situation and obviously increased fear and stress amongst the parents. Their child was under anesthesia and connected to a respirator.


That day, I went to a conference, but I couldn’t focus. My mind was occupied with thoughts of the child. However, I was encouraged to call the family. I wanted to be of help, although in the moment I had no idea how I could do that.

Once I arrived at the hospital, I saw two desperate parents who were longing for any help they could get. The situation was miserable. They needed a miracle.

At the beginning, I explained my specialty.

“I can make a soundtrack for your child that will give him power and strength that will eventually help his body.”At first, they looked at me as if I was talking about some magic. However, I explained to them that, the more positivity their child will come across, the more his brain can build a better immune system as shown by research.


It is not a standalone tool, and I don’t really know the reasons why Jonathan woke up a week later. However, I do know that he is well now, feeling better than ever. Instead of listening to his crying mother, he heard her voice reassuring to him, “My dear child, I know that it is hard time for you, but mommy loves you. I want to play with you and be with you for many years. Your brother misses you and wants to watch movies with you, and daddy wants to hold you and hug you.”


We sat there for almost an hour and recorded little Jonathan’s beautiful meditation soundtrack. Mommy and Daddy got to encourage him with comforting phrases such as, “we love you, and need you to be strong for the family and for yourself. We would like to hug you and play with you again”. When the parents heard the track combined with very soft and relaxing music after recording it, they started to cry. In such an overwhelming situation, I think this was one of the only little hopes they had remaining.


Now baby Jonathan is feeling much better, and my heart is bursting with joy because I created an app that can help people like Jonathan feel better. And this is not the only story. We have hundreds of successes ranging from losing 300 pounds to extraordinary recovery from cancer surgery. I am grateful for this app. It changed and continues to change my life and that of many other people. Consequently, my mission is to spread this positivity and positive self-talk to every corner of the world.

However, I cannot do this alone, change begins with a community. Please join our community of Think Up and help spread and share our app to revolutionize the lives of many people around the globe.

Soup of Happiness

What is happiness?
Can happiness be measured?
What or who controls our happiness?
Is it possible to be in a state of everlasting happiness?

Have you ever thought about the answers to these questions? Do you sometimes sit and think about happiness and the sources that bring it into your life?

Happiness is a state of mind; it’s a practice, a concept and something that is beyond measure. There are things and people that make us happy but true happiness can only enter our life when we allow it too. Yes, happiness can be controlled and the only person who can control your happiness, is you! The problem is that most people believe it’s things and other people that are responsible for our happiness. When you bring in a paradigm shift towards your understanding of happiness and realize that nothing and no one can give you happiness, except you, yourself, you will be in a forever state of happiness.

Let’s look at this way- happiness is a delectable soup that requires 7 unique ingredients. If you want to perfectly cook happiness and make everyday full of flavor and aroma, you need to bring in these 7 ingredients. While every ingredient in itself is capable of achieving happiness, a combination off all 7 is the perfect mix!

Are you ready to cook up some happiness? Here are the 7 ingredients you will require…

Ingredient 1
Look at the fraction as a whole -Embrace what you have
Take it as an 80-20 formula! When something gives you 80% joy and 20% disappointment or unhappiness, focus on the 80% and look at it like it 100%. For example, when you have a baby 80% happiness comes in the form of love and 20% comes in the form of sleepless nights! Expect only to 80% from any situation.Change the way you think and train yourself to love the unperfect. Every time you want life to be perfect change your perspective and except the 80% as it 100%. An expecting perfect situation will bring only suffer and disappointments. Train yourself to look at the imperfect situation as a perfect one.
Believing ‘The grass is greener on the other side’ is what kills happiness! Stop looking over the fence and look within! Every life experience brings in a great number of positives and happiness and as soon as we start focusing on that, the minor downs and lows of life will seem insignificant.

Ingredient 2
Practice Positivity
Happiness comes by practice. When you consciously allow the positive thoughts to take over the negative and make a choice to only allow happiness in your life, you will receive it! Every moment gives us a chance to be positive or negative- choose the positive and bring in true happiness.

Ingredient 3
Make a Difference!
There are so many people around us who need help. Donating money for a cause or volunteering to help those in need brings in a sense of satisfaction and happiness that is unmatched to happiness received by material things.

Ingredient 4
Learn and Grow Everyday
Never stop learning and never stop growing as an individual. Allow new things and experiences to open up your mind to newer possibilities. Create yourself everyday and do something you may have never done or even thought off. Never stop expanding your horizons.

Ingredient 5
Make Someone’s day, everyday!
Every day of life is a new challenge and a new opportunity to help someone or make someone’s day. Reach out to anyone around you who may need your help. Be open and approachable and be someone that people seek when in need.

Ingredient 6
Bring out the Child within!
All of us have a little child inside who is waiting to be let out! Play, sing, dance, run, laugh, love, paint, create… do everything the child in you wants to do. Don’t stop the child from being a child. Be a child and embrace the child within you.

Ingredient 7
Reflect and Introspect
Sometimes are happiness gets hidden or buried under other emotions. Take out time to just relax, reflect and introspect about life. Talk to yourself and slowly unburden the mind until happiness finds its way to the top. Remove everything that is hiding happiness and make it shine and radiate it through all your senses.

These are the 7 unique ingredients that guarantee true happiness in life! Cook it up and nourish your mind and body every day. It’s delicious, addictive and something you don’t want to miss! Happiness is in every corner, waiting to be found and embraced… don’t ignore it! Seek happiness in everything you do, allow your inner happiness to be the main element in your life and you will never stop being happy. Do you want to be happy? Yes, of course! SO BE!
