Ida Linehan Young grew up in North Harbour, St. Mary's Bay and lived in St. Bride's, Placentia Bay for an number of years before making her home in Conception Bay South with her husband and three daughters. She currently works with the Federal Government and her passions include community volunteer work and do-it-yourself home renovations. Ida wrote a book about a tragic fire that befell her family in 1980 when the Linehan household in North Harbour went up in flames. In moments the fire consumed the family's ordinary, loving lives and innocent, human faith that life would always be as it was. Ida, the middle of three girls and one of ten siblings, survived the blaze only to endure weeks and months of treatment and recovery. In straightforward prose and an open-hearted manner, Ida Linehan Young paints a series of vivid, haunting pictures as she recounts a remarkable story. Her book "No Turning Back, Surviving the Linehan Family Tragedy " launched in North Harbour on September 7th where almost 900 books sold and had to go for reprint a mere 5 days later. The book is having tremendous success.
  How we got here...
In 1988, Dave Rudofsky and John Snow (Co-founders of Positive Thinkers Club) were introduced to Brian Tracy, a successful author of motivational and self-improvement books. Brian Tracy developed the "Phoenix Seminar" on human relations, which is promoted in many countries around the world and has influenced the lives of thousands of people over many years.

During this introduction to the Phoenix seminar, Dave and John decided that a "Positive Thinkers Club" would be a great start to generate a critical mass of Newfoundland and Labrador people to meet on a regular basis and promote a positive state of mind.

Brian Tracey came to Newfoundland and Labrador to deliver a seminar and during that event, Dave and John announced the formation of the Positive Thinkers Club.

Today, we are over 100 members in the Positive Thinkers Club in St. John's and still growing!
