The Be Positive pillar is about creating a positive approach to life so you can respond to daily challenges with confidence and a sense of peace. It’s about being aware of your thoughts, choosing to find life’s lessons in the challenges you face, and acting in a way that contributes positively to others lives. Having this positive approach is a foundation to happiness and will guide, motivate, and inspire you in the other four pillars.
It includes many concepts that help create a positive mindset including, but not exclusive to, the following:
- Clarifying your own personal values
- Living intentionally and authentically
- Being present
- Law of attraction
- Defining success/significance
- Brain Science/forming habits
The goal of being positive is to give you the tools to make positive choices and create the habits and automatic thought processes that puts a smile on your face, allows you take a deep breath to get through stressful moments and exude positive energy to all those around you.
Being positive is much more than just smiling, laughing and saying everything is great. That would only be a Band-Aid solution. You can’t sweep your worries under the rug and put on a happy face, being positive is much deeper than that. You must face the challenges that life throws at you and still find peace within the pain. That’s when you have found your true positive being.
