Positivity Works Tee + More

Positivity matters. It matters in our lives and in our world; especially right now. Express yourself to the world each time you wear this design. Let the world know that you believe in the power of positivity to transform people and societies.

John’s Hopkins University recently found that people with a positive outlook are one-third less likely to suffer a heart attack. Stanford University found in 2018 that a positive attitude literally makes your brain work better.

I’ve spent 30 plus years focused on ways to spread positive messages and mindsets through a variety of media. However, in this past year, through personal trial and error and a ton a research, I’ve discovered that there’s no better way to own your positive thinking and emotions than to wear them.

Plus it has the added benefit of spreading that positivity to anyone you meet without saying a word.

Express to everyone you meet your belief that positivity is a powerful force at work in lives and in the world. This design features a colorful display of the word positivity and proudly expresses your commitment to spreading it.

You can order this design (shirts, hoodies, mugs, and more) from our TeeSpring Store today and start spreading a little positivity wherever you go.

Wednesday Morning RayQuotes for Claiming Your Power

However you want to phrase it, you are the captain, the director, the producer of your life. What you think or don’t, what you say or don’t, what you do or don’t decides your course through this life.

Outside events only provide a set on which to act out this play of self in this interconnected multiverse.

Sometimes, though, we fall out of the captain’s seat or even forget who we are and the power we have over our outcomes.

Today I’m sharing some brand new RayQuotes I coined during a thought experiment this morning along with some that I’ve use for years to empower my own mindset. The power of words is in the feeling they create. That feeling becomes the fuel for action and determination.

Hope you enjoy them. Consider. Saving the ones that resonate with you, printing them, and keeping them close to you during your day to remind you that you are the captain of your life.

Old Dog, New Tricks

You’ve heard the old saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” What if you’re the old dog? As slip into the back end of my 50s, I’ll admit it. Despite my reasonably cheery outlook on life and youthful impulses, I sometimes feel like that old dog.

We live in a world moving faster, so far as we know, than any other period of human history. Whereas 20 years used to constitute old, today 20 hours often does. Technology is changing by the moment. We drink information through a firehose without the ability to critically analyze it. In short, there’s always a new trick for us old dogs.

How do we cope?

We must commit ourselves to becoming one with the change. We must commit ourselves to learning new lessons, drawing new conclusions, and releasing cherished paradigms that simply don’t work anymore. All things we old dogs are loathe to do.

I’m not suggesting you relinquish timeless principles. In fact, we need to add a few more of those back into the mix. There’s been some throwing the baby out with the bathwater there.

I am suggesting that you need to adjust to doing old things in new ways. You need to be willing test new ideas, seek new approaches, and always be growing and getting better.

It would nice, for us old dogs, to think that the world is going to slow down and go back to how it used to be when we were young, comfortable, and uniquely confident. The truth is, barring an asteroid, this is the new reality, old dog. If you want to stay in the game, you’ve got to be willing to learn new tricks.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE amazing!

Anger is a Toxic Brain Chemical

Anger is a toxic brain chemical. Like toxic chemicals out in the world, it can have short-term explosive power that seems to propel you forward. It gives you an endorphin rush and makes you “feel good.” This is short-lived.

Eventually, it corrodes the mind, corrodes the heart, corrodes the very essence of your being. Whatever anger rules, it eventually destroys – a person, a nation, a world. We must decide, as conscious creators, if it’s an energy we wanted creating our world.

The scientific evidence for this beyond question. Anger literally destroys our health, if we allow it to persist and become our way of being. Like other addictive substances, it lies to us. It makes us think we’re doing something constructive and anger always craves more anger.

The Japanese research Masuru Emoto wrote a series of best-selling books back in the 1990s called Messages from Water. He demonstrated, despite some scientists claiming it was pseudo-science, that water has memory. When it forms into ice crystals after being exposed to emotion, it tends to become beautiful and symmetric from positive emotion and damaged and sick looking after exposure to negative energy.

Think about that! You are about 75 percent water. The planet’s surface is about 75 percent water. How damaging could all the negativity on the planet right now be?

You don’t need his experiment to prove this to yourself. How do you feel when you’ve let anger get the best of you? Often you feel like you “need a shower.”

We’ve seen a lot of anger in the world in the stressful moment of the past year. Some of the issues driving the anger a legitimate. However, we must ask ourselves. Can this toxic brain chemical produce the positive change we seek or will it just drag us, our nations, and civilization down into its black hole of destruction?

Anger is an alert system like fear. They are meant to let us know there is something in our environment we should be reacting to. However, neither is a solution or strategy. They always fail and destroy when used in that way.

Once our anger has alerted us to the need for change, it must be transformed into a productive energy, brain chemical that can actually bring positive and productive change. Anger alone will consume all in its path, beginning with the angry person.

Let love, let peace, let a positive vision for change rule you. They are the clean energy of emotions. They are the constructive means of achieving that which you hope to achieve.

Affirmations:

  • Anger destroys me until I let it go. Today I let it go.
  • I release my anger and transform it into a more productive energy.
  • I refuse to let anger destroy me or destroy my world.
  • I choose love over anger.
  • I choose peace over anger.
  • I choose positive change over angry reaction.
