Almost invariably, we will encounter obstacles throughout the day—there’s no such thing as a perfect day. When we encounter such a challenge, we focus on the benefits, no matter how slight or unimportant they seem. For example, if you get stuck in traffic, think about how you now have time to listen to the rest of your favorite podcast. If the store is out of the food you want to prepare, think about the thrill of trying something new.
When we surround ourself with positive people, we hear positive outlooks, positive stories and positive affirmations. Their positive words will sink in and affect our own line of thinking, which then affects our words and similarly contributes to the tribe. Finding positive people to fill up our life can be difficult, but we need to eliminate the negativity in our life before it consumes us. Do what you can to improve the positivity of others, and let their positivity affect you the same way.
