The World Needs Positivity
Everywhere you look these days, you see fear, hysteria, negativity, and ‘lack’ thinking. Whatever happened to positivity and kindness?
It doesn’t take any more effort to be kind than it does to be cold or mean, and being positive is a lot more enjoyable than being negative all the time.
But sometimes, it’s not as easy as clicking your fingers, and suddenly you’re feeling positive. Positivity is a mindset that stems from your beliefs, values, and personal experiences.
Your Thoughts and Attitude Matter
If people knew how powerful their thoughts were in creating their version of reality, they would never have another negative view again.
Being positive doesn’t mean being fake about it or pretending there are no problems in the world. Positivity is how you live in the world and react to what’s happening around you.
It’s time to start spreading positivity and kindness to yourself and everyone else. Let’s dive in!

You Feel Better About Yourself
Being nice to people feels good, and radiating positivity out into the world releases your brain’s natural ‘feel-good’ chemicals.
Your self-esteem and self-image also benefit because your energy is lighter and more powerful when you’re in a positive state.
When you feel good about yourself, there isn’t much you can’t do. Your work, relationships, personal development, and a sense of purpose thrive through your positivity and kindness.
You Become More Likeable
No one wants to be around misery and negativity.
When you’re positive and friendly, more people want to be around you. Because we attract what is similar, you’ll find positive people coming into your life as well.
“It’s a wonderful thing to be optimistic. It keeps you healthy, and it keeps you resilient” – Daniel Kahneman
Life Becomes Easier
Life becomes more difficult when you’re weighed down by negative thinking. The decisions you make and how you communicate with people reflect your inner state of being.
When your energy is positive, and you have kindness in your heart, things flow.’ People respond to you positively, and something that used to stress or frustrate you isn’t that big of a deal anymore.
You Become a Force for Good
Being a force for good means, you’re contributing to the world around you, even on a micro-level.
When you’re a force for good, you’re not so quick to judge people, and you’re clear about who you want to be and the type of life you want to live.
You’re engaged with life, productive and creative, and following your path to inner peace and prosperity.
“I think anything is possible if you have the mindset and the will and desire to do it and put the time in” – Roger Clemens
You Inspire Others
People are starving for inspiration, and it doesn’t take much for people to feel inspired.
The most powerful way to inspire is through action. You encourage yourself and others by ‘being’ cheerful and kind, not just talking about it or pretending to be.
Live it, own it, and don’t let other people’s problems drag you down.
How to Spread Positivity and Kindness
Spreading positivity and kindness is a mindset and a lifestyle. After a while, you don’t have to think about it because it’s become a natural part of who you are.
Here are some of the best ways to spread positive vibes and reap their rewards;
“Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation” – Michael Jordan
1. Know Your Purpose
Living life without a purpose is like trying to shoot a target wearing a blindfold. You don’t get anywhere.
Knowing your purpose is having clarity about what you want to do with your time on earth and you’re making progress towards your objective.
Although your purpose changes throughout your lifetime, someone living their purpose is a sheer inspiration of positive energy.
“You cannot have a positive life and a negative mind” – Joyce Meyer
2. Smile and Compliment
A friendly smile and a genuine, discreet compliment can make a person’s day, and yours too.
When you smile at people, don’t grin so hard you make them feel uncomfortable, the same with compliments.
But when you give an honest compliment that comes from a place of positivity and kindness you’re radiating abundance and success.
“When you are enthusiastic about what you do, you feel this positive energy. It’s very simple” – Paulo Coelho
3. Be a Pillar of Strength
Being a pillar of strength means you can keep your s**t together when other people fall to pieces. This also goes for yourself when you go through chaotic or disastrous experiences.
You’re a pillar of strength when you can stay (reasonably) calm in the face of fear and push through your difficulties instead of giving up.
People who have this strength are more successful by default. Without it, they wouldn’t be where they are, and it’s their source of ongoing power.
“Work hard, stay positive, and get up early. It’s the best part of the day” – George Allen, Sr.
4. Look for Gold
There’s something to learn, think about, or follow up on in any situation. When something goes wrong, the negative person loses their patience and quits because it’s too hard.
In that same situation, the positive person will reflect on what went wrong, how they might have contributed to it, and what they can do to fix it and get back on track.
The most powerful way to spread positivity and kindness is to live it.
“I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter” – Walt Disney
5. Live It
Everything you’ve read in this post is meaningless unless you’re out in the world living it. It’s not enough to think, talk and read about positivity and kindness.
You need to be a living embodiment of it. Who you are comes down to how you think, and when you change your thoughts, even just a few, you can make massive changes to your life, and the lives of people around you.
