Staying positive keeps your energy level up. This is critical for success. It's easy to get down but this lowers the energy level and adversely affects many areas of your life.
Negativity zaps the energy level and can affect your life in unseen areas, particularly health and well-being. This is the most important element to understand when trying to stay positive.
This life is a journey filled with numerous tests. Events test our resolve and are set up to help us grow spiritually. The sooner we understand and accept this concept, the sooner we can learn to stay positive no matter what occurs. It's all part of the big picture.
Eat right and exercise on a regular basis. Take care of the temple. If you bought a brand new Ferrari you would be careful of the type of gas used, and very meticulous as to the overall care of the vehicle. We should do the same with our bodies. Positive energy and a prolonged life are the consequences of a healthy diet and consistent exercise.
Plain and simple, negative people drain your energy. Stay away from these people at all cost. We all know someone who never has a nice thing to say. Sever ties with this individual as soon as possible. If it's a co-worker, or family member, or anyone that you have to see on a daily basis, deal with that individual at face value. In other words, deal with the real issue and sidestep the drama. When this person starts with the negativity, walk away. Eventually, she will realize that her negativity no longer controls you.
The concept of a "gratitude rock" comes straight from the book and movie called, "The Secret." Find a nice, small rock, pebble, or even a marble, and carry it in your pocket every day. Every time you remove the rock from your pocket, say a brief prayer of thanks.
Words to live by. Great list!
