Positive Thinking

By
Real Estate Agent with California Coast & Country Homes, Inc. CalBRE Broker #00983670

Hey friends, between the presidential election. competitive colleagues, and the nastiness of the online "negative nellies", are you overwhelmed by negativeness all around you?  Are you unfriending people right and left on your FB page?  Maybe we can each take a moment of self-reflection and THINK before speaking.

One way I do this is by LOOKING FOR THE GOOD in others.  Of course we all have downfalls and imperfections, but make it a habit to intentionally SEARCH for something nice about every person with whom you interact.  Reach out and recognize your similarities, give a compliment, or simply point out the positive.  Becoming a positive person is a STATE OF MIND developed through the habit of repetition.

Assume the best in people.  Don't be so quick to take offense.  Allow a measure of grace to everyone because that's what you would want others to do to you.  Give the benefit of the doubt and extend a hand of kindness.  In the end, "people won't remember what you said or did, but they will remember how you made them feel." ~ Maya Angelou

Positive thinking will return someday! Right now hard to be positive about the political choices!

I love the post, on the letters of THINK. It applies in our personal and professional lives that thinking positive is so healthy for our brains.

Yes I agree positivity is a state of mind but the jack-assess that post 12-15 posts on FB need to get a life, yes I consider defriending them, but what's the use, might as well just ignore them:))Endre

Anyone has good in her/him. Even if you do not like a person at first, give him/her a benefit of a doubt. Treat everyone with respect and kindness, regardless of their past and mistakes.
