We here at Positivity Works! are of the opinion that we need to be positive because it builds our tolerance to pain and hurt. It builds our tolerance to the reality of the multiple wars, disasters, and grievances and helps us to go on living. It even builds our tolerance to physical pains. For example, convincing yourself that “you got this” in a middle of a torturous run can really be the thing to push you past the pain of the cramp in your side. Positivity can also build your tolerance for others when you would like nothing better than to *&^BKJD!!! (insert *be really mean to them*). Being able to turn away from them with a smile is much better than being arrested, don’t you think?
A while back I was noticing this great trend of advertising that promoted positive lifestyle choices or keeping a positive outlook. Most of that trend began when the world started to recognize economic strife and needed a little encouragement to get out and stimulate the sickly economy (i.e. convince consumers, with a big smile and a hug, to spend their hard-earned money on their products).
So, since I find the idea of what I call “happiness marketing” to be such a grand thing, I always notice it and think to share with all of you, positive thinkers. I mean, what if you missed it? 😉
Wally and the Positivity Works! team consulted and we thought it might be some time for a little music therapy. What better way to inspire increased self-esteem and positivity than a song full of affirmations? We couldn’t think of anything else either! =)
