Big things are happening for Derry singer Conor McGinty since he welcomed the power of positivity into his life, including a Broadway audition, a new album and a major new show.
Conor came to the public's attention in 2016 when he made it through to the six chair challenge in X-Factor.
It was the fourth time he had entered the competition and despite continuing to gig and release music he found the rejection difficult to bounce back from.
"My attitude was negative and I was getting negativity back," he recalled.
"But since changing my attitude really positive things have started to happen."
Conor says he feels his two late grandmother's Granny Madeline and Granny June are watching out for him too.
"My Granny Madeline passed away two years ago and my Granny June died two months ago," he explained.
"Granny June said just before she died 'I want Conor to get his break with his music' and now I've managed to finish an album I've been working on for three years."
Conor has also been working with Derry born life coach Cliona O'Hara who works as a consultant at the Bob Proctor Institute in America, after she came stumbled across his music by chance.
Ms O'Hara saw a poster for one of his gigs when she was visiting the City Hotel and after looking up his music online she got in touch and offered to help further his career.
"I was a bit skeptical at first," admitted Conor.
"I've been promised things in the past that have never materilalised."
He is now is about to complete Cliona's a six month course called 'Thinking into Results' and last week she contacted a major Broadway producer about him.
By an uncanny coincidence the producer is putting together an Irish show for Broadway and said he wanted to see Conor straightaway.
So last week he made a whistle stop visit to Brooklyn to audition and flew back in time to perform at a wedding in Derry.
Conor is currently waiting to hear if he has landed a role, but he remains upbeat whatever the outcome.
"I do feel positive about it, but if it doesn't happen that's because something better is going to happen," he said.
Conor's new album of Celtic music 'A New Dawn', which he describes as 'Tommy Flemming meets Christy Moore meets Finbar Furey', will be launched at the City Hotel on November 1
"It's sold out now which is just unbelievable," said Conor.
"Part of me thought people aren't going to buy a ticket when they can see me in the pubs for free but I trusted my gut and I went with it.
"I didn't listen to the fear in my head and that's what happened."
Thanks in part to the excitement generated by the album launch he is now planning a major live show next March, which will be his biggest to date.
He is teaming up with well known promoter Joe Gallagher, who works with the likes of Celine Dione and tickets will be on sale next Friday.
"There's life after TV talent shows," he said.
"You've got to believe in yourself. It's not the end of the story.
"To me it getting put out after the six chair challenge wasn't a failure."
Conor's 14 track album 'A New Dawn' is available on presale from his Facebook page Conor McGinty Music at the special price of £7.99.
It will be available on iTunes and Spotify from November 1 at the full price of £14.99.
