Positive culture comes from being mindful, and respecting your coworkers, and being empathetic.
Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.
Natural ability is important, but you can go far without it if you have the focus, drive, desire and positive attitude.
Positive feelings come from being honest about yourself and accepting your personality, and physical characteristics, warts and all; and, from belonging to a family that accepts you without question.
I am usually positive and optimistic. If I get stressed or some results are not so good, I let it go by thinking, ‘Oh well, it can be better next time.’ I don’t worry a lot, and I’m not too serious about anything.
If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.
My dear friend, clear your mind of cant.
Be true to yourself and surround yourself with positive, supportive people.
You just keep a positive attitude no matter what comes in your way – challenges, roadblocks – don’t let it faze you, and you can overcome anything.
I was determined to share my positive approach and not let diabetes stand in the way of enjoying my life.
I’m a very positive person, but this whole concept of having to always be nice, always smiling, always happy, that’s not real. It was like I was wearing a mask. I was becoming this perfectly chiselled sculpture, and that was bad. That took a long time to understand.
I truly believe the intention of creating positive change is so important to the collective consciousness. When you have a group of people that have the intention and the capacity, talent, and intelligence to actualize those intentions, then you have something really powerful.
When you are enthusiastic about what you do, you feel this positive energy. It’s very simple.
Your smile will give you a positive countenance that will make people feel comfortable around you.
The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do.
I don’t think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.
I think anything is possible if you have the mindset and the will and desire to do it and put the time in.
When you show deep empathy toward others, their defensive energy goes down, and positive energy replaces it. That’s when you can get more creative in solving problems.
I’m always angry. I wake up angry. There is a lot to be angry about. Anger is a positive energy.
It is true that as people, we tend to remember only the positive. With time, the grim details fade away, and as a species we survive on this notion. In our desire to gloss over the undeniable macabre parts of our American history, we forget. That amnesia manifests itself, especially when dealing with the plight of black men.
Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.
My grades put me in about 5,000th place in all of South Korea. If I kept going down that path, I would’ve become a successful man with a regular job. However, I was positive I’d be number one in the country as a rapper. So I asked my mother whether she wanted to have a son who was a first-place rapper, or a 5,000th-place student.
Putting forward your positive energy connects you back to basic human values which we all share. Good Deeds Day shows that no matter the size of the gesture, a smile that brightens someone else’s day or volunteering in your community, we can all take active part in making a difference.
All my life, I have been a positive thinker… I have always been able to survive by telling myself that no matter how bad things are, they will one day be better. And that out of every event – no matter how tragic – one can always find a way to survive and even, perhaps, to be a little bit happy.
You’ve done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.
As a tennis player, you have to get used to losing every week. Unless you win the tournament, you always go home as a loser. But you have to take the positive out of a defeat and go back to work. Improve to fail better.
Adopting a really positive attitude can work wonders to adding years to your life, a spring to your step, a sparkle to your eye, and all of that.
