#ThursdayThought – Are You Positive?
We always need positivty in our lives. And in this Covid-19 crisis, it’s needed more than ever before.
While positivity is an attitude, it’s also a discipline.
To be positive is not only to be upbeat but also to affirm something.
And many times we don’t affirm facts and truth.
We can only be positive when we can take the time to be discerning about what we share. Without that affirmation negative consequences will result.Tweet
We’re all guilty of passing on information that sounds good, and seems to check out, only to realize we didn’t get the entire picture.
Do you remember the game when you sit in a circle and one person tells a story to the next person, who passes that story on to the next, and so on? By the time it gets to the sixth person it already has strayed from the original. But everybody in the circle believed they were passing on the right information.
If our true goal is to be positive, both in an attitudinal and informational sense, then we should discern what we speak, promote, share and believe is true.
We can’t we truly be positive if we don’t ensure the right information is passed on. We can’t be positive when our biases, outrage and emotions drive our decision making process.
And we can’t be positive if we’re not truly helping to serve others and the greater good.
Improving our leadership, our influence and our world can only happen when the right information is fully affirmed. Are you positive that you have the proper facts, perspective and intentions in how and what you communicate?
We can only be positive when we can take the time to be discerning about what we share. Without that affirmation negative consequences will result.
