I had a moment where I started to feel down on myself. Not because things were not happening for me, but because things were not happening the way I had originally planned them to happen. I’m convinced the reason we start to down ourselves is because we’re comparing our success stories, or have a lack of confidence in our own abilities. The moment was very brief though because
I refuse to live a defeated life and have a defeated mentality.”
I have great encouraging people around me to help keep me focused.”
After prayer and listening to some inspirational tunes I was back on my 1-2 step ready to conquer the world again. It’s amazing what a little positivity can do to you.
Yep, Positivity does something to you!
Think about Pharrell William’s song Happy, a triple platinum hit that went viral across the world because of it’s positive message. When you listen you can’t help but shake a little, or clap, or tap your feet and nod to it. The song became an epidemic. Why? Because the positivity that flowed from the hit awakened gratefulness and hope out of you. Well at least it did for me. Here are a few other positive magnets I draw from…
1. A positive message gives me hope for my future. As a result every morning I’m expecting a great thing to stem from that positive message I heard.
Expectations fuels hope. Expect the Great!
2. Positive movers and shakers around me inspires me to get to moving myself.
Your great idea will never be any use to anyone else unless you share it.
3. Positive people lifts spirits, create beautiful smiles, and ultimately change lives.
Someone at some point has done it for you. Are you doing your part?
Whatever you need to do to get that extra boost whenever you’re lacking (& it happens to us all), find your positive go-to book, blog, or person and re-up on your daily dose of goodness. That’s right, make it a habit because we deserve to live our very best everyday!
Need help finding a little positivity? Don’t worry, I gotcha!
