What you achieve in life is a direct payback of what you give. Projecting positivity to others is like a boomerang that will always return to its master sooner or later. Make it known that you are an encourager who provides a shot of confidence to anyone who needs it. Consider it a blessing to be gifted with the ability to share a positive outlook that helps others grow stronger.
“We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.” – Ronald Reagan
Do not bury your head in the sand. Extend help to all loved ones you see in conflict. Offer assistance to change their disagreements for the better. Act as a mediator to alter the mind-set of parties bogged down by disagreement. Remind others how they used to love each other. Show them how to reduce anger and open their hearts to constructive resolutions. Look for little ways to lend a helping hand. Instead of telling others how it should be, ask what role you could play in supporting others who are in crisis. Perhaps you could run a few errands, cook a meal, do a little research, or simply lend an ear.
“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” – Abraham Lincoln
We have a moral obligation to do our best in equipping our children with the positive outlook necessary to succeed in life. Children, in particular, can fall prey to negative attitudes. They are just learning to cultivate their talents and do not yet fully appreciate the concept of delayed gratification. We can encourage our children to develop a positive attitude, often, just by spending quality time with them. Let the feeling of a truly wonderful day surrounded by loving family members envelope your children. At the end of the day, talk about some of the moments you most enjoyed together. Help your child become more self-aware by inviting them to discuss their feelings, sensations, and body processes. Nurture a culture of gratitude. Gently prod your child to try again, break down complex tasks, or look at a problem from a different perspective. Model calm responses yourself. Good eye contact and a warm tone can go a long way. Choose your words carefully. Instead of saying “no” all the time, try to reframe your response in a positive manner or ask a thought-provoking query.
“I am too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.” -Unknown
Set an example of positivity and productivity in your workplace that motivates others to give their all and hit their targets. Smile, laugh, and joke more often. Take a deep breath and take a walk when the task gets stressful. Show gratitude by thanking others for their contributions. Find freedom from “The Overwhelm” by saying “no” to what you don’t want and “yes” to what you need. Make room in each day for yourself and for fun to have greater freedom over your time.
