The Power of Positive Thinking

The Power of Positive Thinking

Who are the most positive people you know? My top 4 are Ben Jon, Ryan Travis Woods, Jonathan Schultz, and Rob Morales

And you know what they all have in common? Read on.

1. They’re busy/productive– positive people seem to find a way to make things happen for themselves. They disregard the negative opinions of others and continue to do what they feel is right in order to succeed.

2. They laugh a lot/extremely funny– I don’t know if this is just a coincidence but I’m always laughing around particularly positive people.

3. They are selfless and selfish at the same time- the balance between helping other people and focusing on yourself is an undervalued element to happiness. I wrote about this here and it holds true for all of the positive people I know.

4. They are in great shape- this is not always the case, but something I often see. Why? Cortisol! Cortisol is your stress hormone, and people who are always stressed and producing cortisol tend to be more overweight. The last thing your body wants to do when stressed out is burn fat, build muscle, and be lean.

5. They read a lot– not only do they read a lot, but they read a lot of different types of books that don’t always relate to their chosen field.

6. They never shove advice down your throat– this is a big one. Perhaps it has to do with the selfless element they have, but I hardly ever find myself overwhelmed with their advice or opinions unless I ask. And even if I do ask, the delivery of their words is always carefully chosen.

7. When they get angry or fail, they learn and move on- oh what a beautiful and final way to finish this list….learning from failures and or negative emotions is so important. Who are we if we don’t learn from our mistakes? Positive people tend to have this one down perfect.
