Monty Python’s Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life is a light hearted song that promotes the idea that we should not take things too seriously. Let’s stay positive and look on the bright side 🙂
The mind is very powerful and one of its most powerful abilities is imagination. Imagine a world of optimism and love, hope and peace.
Before you speak, THINK
I think this is a great mantra to follow in order to speak more positively:
Before you speak, THINK:
T – is it True?
H – is it Helpful?
I – is it Inspiring?
N – is it Necessary?
K – is it Kind?
An obstacle is often a stepping stone.
The above William Prescott quote reflects an excellent way to respond to challenges. Seeing obstacles not as hindrances but as steps to better things is a perfect application of a positive attitude.
One small positive thought
On my way home from a run I passed a pharmacy with the follow uplifting message:
One small positive thought can change your whole day 🙂
What a great thought for the day 🙂
Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities – always see them, for they’re always there.
There are endless possibilities and we can achieve what may seem to others to be impossible. In order to achieve possibilities, it is critical to be open to them first. As the above Norman Vincent Peale quote states, the possibilities are always there.
Focus on what can be
Focus your energy and time on what can be, not what can’t be. This is a basis of being optimistic and opens oneself to the many possibilities in this amazing world.
Today is going to be another wonderful day
Wishing everybody a happy and successful day! May we all be closer to reaching our goals at the end than at the start with many smiles shared along the way.
Be the change you wish to see in the world
This quote of unknown origin, often incorrectly attributed to Mahatma Gandhi, is a fantastic mantra to live by.
If you want to see a more positive and happy world, be more positive and happy. If you want to see a healthier world, be healthier.
Setting an example is one of the best ways, if not the best way, to influence others.
Challenges are opportunities for growth
Sometimes things challenge us unexpectedly, like a hot water system failing. Instead of seeing this occasion as a ‘tragedy’ I see it as a challenge to fix and an opportunity for growth.
