The 6 Simplest But Most Powerful Positivity Boosters

 A QUICK PREAMBLE:

I don’t care what anybody says or thinks, powerful positivity boosters are key to understanding that our world, our life, IS a beautiful thing, a GIFT that we should not/must not waste, squander or destroy because of all the negativity that’s either in our lives or constantly bombarding us from all directions – in abundance, it seems!

On The Surface – Greed, Avarice and Selfishness Abounds

There are, sadly, many people in the world that live for and live with negativity because of greed, avarice and selfishness…and of course, because it’s simply “easier” to be unhappy, angry, spiteful or miserable i.e. NEGATIVE, than it is to be happy, grateful, forward-looking, friendly and content i.e. POSITIVE.

You really don’t have to be drawn into the world of the negative thinkers, or if you are already there, then you don’t have to stay there. There are fortunately, many people like myself, that love the gift that’s been given and can always see life and the world for what it truly is under all the grime and grimness…beautiful and full of inherent goodness.

Sky-rocketing your positivity while destroying the negativity caused by a hectic lifestyle and constant bad news from around the world, or from within your world, is, with practice, so very simple. It’s just a damned pity that more people (in low and high places) don’t think the same way..!

CUTTING TO THE CHASE:

Be grateful for what you have, for what you are and for what you are going to achieve.

Giving and then receiving in kind is a whole lot more important than what others, very often strangers, think about you.

At various points of my life i have used all of the following 6 simple but powerful positivity boosters – and often more than one of them together, to tame many an ‘angry’ heart (or head) or to make someone – male, female, young and old alike…oh, and myself…understand that there’s a lot more to life than what is making them (or me) miserably negative at that particular moment in time.

Booster # 01 – Adopt an “Attitude of Gratitude”

Stop belittling others or being jealous of others for what they have. STOP whining like a spoilt little brat about what you DON’T have and start thinking and being grateful about what you DO have i.e. your health, all your limbs, your eyesight, your hearing, an adoring soul mate, the gift of children, a roof over your head, a full stomach, true friends etc. Just a couple of these is a good start!

The lost virtue: Gratitude

I can go on and on…for example, what about “a full head of hair” – i’ve got practically zero of that these days, except for that which tends to be sprouting out of my lug-holes and hooter – at an astonishing rate, but hey, you know what, i’ve got great friends, a roof over my head, food on the table, good health and a beautiful family – as far as i’m concerned, hair or no hair, i’m truly blessed and have a hell of a lot to be grateful for.

Oh yeah, i’ve got a pretty cool sense of humour too in spite of some serious past sufferings of my own!

Remember this: there are many exceptional and inspiring people out there (some of whom i have personally met and/or still know) that have life and health destroying afflictions or have undergone truly terrible or terrifying experiences – but they’ve gone forward and remained positive, they are grateful for what they have and for just BEING!

Booster # 02 – “Carpe Diem”

“Seize The Day” or “Seize The Moment”

You can do absolutely NOTHING about the past except learn from it and then work on today and the right-here-and-now,so that any mistakes or regrets are not repeated and your life stays on a positive course.

The future is only as good as what you do or what you think in the here and now, the present. The future isn’t here and it’s certainly not something that you can accurately predict. So do what is right, even if it’s tough, and then the future will take care of itself…that’ll be the next here-and-now…right?

Meditation can be Sooo beneficial when it comes to concentrating on your present.

Just a thought: Use it, Don’t Use it…

Booster # 03 – Exercise…HARD

Stop Being A Wussy

Whatever exercise you prefer, it doesn’t matter. Just make sure you go for it in a BIG way and get those mood boosting endorphins kicked into high gear. Believe me, there really is absolutely nothing better than a hard session of sweat-inducing exercise.

Get into the habit and it becomes a pleasure, not a chore.

…and that pleasure will sustain your positive mood throughout the whole day, as well as keep you super-fit, trim and strong.

Booster # 04 – Get Outside and Breathe

Carrying out deep breathing exercises while you’re outside in the fresh air is great when you can. By the sea, in the mountains, in the bush or even in the quiet hours of a suburban neighbourhood is a great way to boost your positivity.

I live in a small seaside town and the air can be invigorating on a normal day, summer or winter, but what i find especially invigorating is when there’s a strong, cold wind coming from the ocean and i can stand at the waters edge taking deep breaths of that cool damp ocean air as it blows over me. There’s nothing better!

Actually carrying out deep breathing exercises is just a great way to de-stress your mind at any time of the day or night. Try it before work and/or before bed.

Meditation is just about the best medium for breathing exercise…use it, don’t use it!

Booster # 05 – Be Happy – Smile

Smile – Life IS Good

You’ve probably heard this before, but it is a fact: You use fewer muscles to smile than you do to frown or look “grumpy”…so why not make it easy on yourself – and everyone else around you, and simply smile whenever you have the opportunity…it ALWAYS has a great effect on you and those who happen to be in your space at that moment.

OK, don’t just wonder around with a permanent grin stuck on your chops…that might just be a bit too scary for kids and old ladies (and probably all the others in-between). Just be natural, be happy and smile when you know it’ll make a big positivity-boosting difference to you and everyone around you.

Booster # 06 – Be a Giver

Don’t hold back on your generosity, be a giving person and you’ll not only reap the rewards later – after all, the natural laws of reciprocity and the laws of attraction are at work with this – but the satisfaction from seeing and feeling the gratitude extended toward you when you selflessly give, is something very special indeed.

Giving up something, anything, from your seat on the bus or a couple of coins to a stranger or a friend, who needs it more than you, paves the way to a true form of immortality, because that act will always be remembered.

Even simpler than that, it just feels plain good!

A FINAL ANECDOTE:

A positive attitude stemming from an “Attitude of Gratitude” etc. is something that i’ve kinda preached over many topics and for many years and if you haven’t tried it, then it’s time you did. If you use only a couple of these powerful positivity boosters, you’re going to be amazed at the results you achieve – most especially from those who would at first seem inherently predisposed to negativity in one form or another.

Being of a positive nature yourself inevitably has a positivity-boosting effect over all those that have or will come into contact with you and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being an inspirational and positive influence over anyone.

It’s just a shame there isn’t more of you!

I think this from Cristina Diaz says it all perfectly:

If today was the last day of my life
I would leave all worries aside,
I would be thankful to be alive,
I would be all right,
I would just smile.

If today was the last day of my life
I would stop to smell the roses,
I would appreciate all that surrounds me,
I would be friendly, and I would laugh,
I would take the time to be closer.

If today was the last day of my life
I would pass on peace,
I would be generous,
I would pass on love,
I would deeply breathe.

If today was the last day of my life
I would accept peacefully all that comes,
including my death,
for death
is just a new beginning.

Carpe Diem, Be All You Should Be
