I like the energy here..
..but I think we can take it up another level. In a world where everyone seems to be self-centered due to the mind having a view of one’s self you can only connect on a meaningful level with most via positive interaction. Beyond creating attractiveness you’ll also have a wide array of other benefits.
You’ll solve more problems. >> Optimists always find the solution. Why is this? They foster a flexible mindset to tackle problems. This in turn results in good outcomes. This cycle further perpetuates as this garners enthusiasm for future problem solving.
It will help you conquer negative emotions>> Being positive helps recover from negative emotions. Most people will even mistake feeling “ok” as being in a bad mood in the context of a previous peak moment. Instead of letting the perceived negativity snowball, accept normalcy with a positive attitude and you’ll be at another peak before you know it.
You’ll start thinking about something besides yourself>> positive emotions promotes generosity. This is a result of appreciating different perspectives beyond your own. Through understanding of your fellow companions you are more likely to engage in kind acts. These kind acts don’t go un-rewarded as they result in strengthened relationships along with increased well being.
You’ll become more creative>> Positive emotion leads to creative thought and new information. The mind expansion doesn’t stop here. Being grateful for new information leads to further momentum into new learning. So be thankful for shared wisdom. Some may even argue that the only true thing passed on is one’s education, knowledge and experience. Learn, share and teach. It’s a fun cycle.
You’ll live longer>> the saying “we’re not here for a long time.. we’re here for a good time” might actually have you sticking around for a bit longer than your salty counterparts. An interesting study followed a group of nuns and placed them into groups based on their diaries. The ones who were labeled as “positive” on average lived 7 years longer. Another group of middle-agers from Ohio displayed the same benefit, even thought they weren’t nuns. That’s good news for those engaging in all “WeCan Weekends.”
So looks like your positive vibes will have you solving problems, being a champion among your peers, sparking a creative spirit and being here for a bit longer. (that’s to say if you’re even counting). After all in the context of time.. it’s all pretty short. However, it’s only in the context of something finite that you can experience greatness. After all… we’re not vampires.
