The Practice of Positivity


An article by Huffington Post introduced seven different mantras that are helpful in trying to practice positivity:

1. Guide Your Energy

“I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.” — Muhammad Ali

2. Connect with Ourselves

The better we understand the nature of the world, the better we can move in the world. The better we understand the nature of ourselves, the better we can move within ourselves.

3. Practice Visualization

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.”— Buddha

4. Slow Down To Move Forward

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves — slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment.” — Thich Nhat Hanh

5. Read, Write, Watch

“Don’t waste time waiting for inspiration. Begin, and inspiration will find you.” — H. Jackson Brown Jr.

6. Be Kind To Yourself

“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” —  Dalai Lama

7. Develop Resiliency

“In the end, if you are lucky, you see that our trials are what improve us. And if you are very lucky and somewhat insightful, you see that whatever your trial has been, it is exactly what you needed. Our trials make us who we are.” — Michael Morton
