    Hey, if you are even a touch happier, and I feel the same way, we can rub it off others around us.....it spreads like a virus.....but a good one!!!

    TBH...a good test is when you are not happy about some things, and yet you can still be in positive ground. I actually believe there's a discipline that develops, that chooses good over not so good.

            I think I made the right choice so far, given the cars are still running, and I prefer to be aware of things, at least during the day!

                You are so right my friend....what would the world be without music??!!

                I am aging myself, but I know every song on this video, and liked most of them. And this may be a bias, but the era you have highlighted is, for me, the most exciting musical era in history. The 50s were the roots of many great musical sound, and then the 60s and into the 70s was an explosion of new and interesting sound....from pop to rock to folk music. The British Invasion alone was a true game-changer in music discovery! And though I am not a big country music fan, there were many songs that I could relate to back then.

                In those early days, we had but a few radio stations, so we heard music of all kinds....and the good ones made it, no matter the genre.

                Thanks for including in this thread. Music is so joyful, fun and for sure, motivating!!:thumb:

                • My Newer Take On Positive Versus Negative Thinking

                  (To the Mods - hoping not to merge with other threads, given this topic has some uniqueness, with a slightly different perspective about the two sides of the pos/neg spectrum. Thx!)

                  We bought a vehicle recently, and it has a mirror that can be flipped to provide a full camera view of traffic behind us. When in that mode, it is not a mirror as such, but an unobstructed camera at the rear end of our SUV. When I think of positive vs negative thinking, this new technology came to mind.

                  I was having a very positive day yesterday, and it seemed like everything was better, just like most every other day that had that same vibe. It's like I flipped from ordinary mirror mode, to full camera view. Not that the mirror mode is negative, but I am using it as a perspective for consideration. The premise being, I almost feel like we are 2 different people when we choose to go positive or negative. That most things become clearer in a good way, when we lock our minds into that mode.....whereas allowing ourselves to be in a negative mode taints all the other good stuff surrounding us. Two distinctly different visuals....and two distinctly different outcomes.

                  In fact, I am now thinking that the two can not exist together, without a huge trade off. There is not really a pos/neg combined mode that has any real merit....and I wonder if in that case, the neg mode takes precedence. If so, that makes me even more sure that one must focus on positivity and all the good it brings, rather than taking a chance, and allowing darker thoughts to sneak in at any point in time. Almost like an unwanted guest.

                  Remember, we have choices. And though some of us have difficulty restraining negative thoughts, I believe we can gradually train ourselves to be natural hunters of the "silver lining". Because if there is some sort of switch involved, the overwhelming winner is you, if you adapt to your better self.

                  Nothing new, but there are positivity "enablers" from my perspective. Hang with positive people for one. And whenever given the choice, choose the pos switch. I find that negativity is easily found if one looks for it.....there are an abundance of negative people around. And just as I say that hanging with pos people is good, why not steer clear of negative ones. They may of course be around you in places like work or school or wherever, but limit your time with them, politely if need be. Smile, say something good, and walk away. Go sit with the motivating types.

                  Lets also be clear of another key point,,,,,being positive is not about being phony. It is a very wise lifestyle choice, and it just makes things better. If that's phony, I'm good with the description!!

                  Last point I want to add....though I hope (for us all) to achieve 100% positivity, I do admit that a wee bit of negative can come and go in tandem, which is certainly realistic. This not about perfection, rather reality combined with good choices.


                  Turn on that powerful switch.....feel the rewards!:thumb:

                  • I agree that people can be positive without being phony.... Although, those who come across phony with their positivity rub me the wrong way, because there are those too. Much better to spend your time looking at the positive as opposed to the negative. I know if I spend too much time around negative people, my attitude tends to get more negative as well.

                      I mentioned phony, because I agree, some people are not being themselves when "acting" a certain way. But I see it as being positive from within. And I know it is not phony, because when at my best, I feel a bit pumped when the positive vibe is strong, and the folks around me are feeling it! I always relate back to my career days.....and how my attitude changed as I walked from parking to the building complex, and then the 5 or more minutes to my work. I would pass by numerous folks I knew, and I would say "hi" and wish them well, and by the time I got to my office, I was feeling no more early morning tiredness. This was especially evident on cold winter morns, say on a Monday......when I realized the benefits of positivity and related interactions.

                      But none of it was phony.....other than pushing myself a wee bit to get the ball rolling.

                      In fact, I get a big charge anytime I am in the company of people I like to talk to, like at the gym or the sauna (where the ole boys get together to discuss how we are going to save the world!!) or anywhere for that matter.

                      • ^^^^^As for motivating, try going to a gym and see how many folks you can find without music in their heads!!! The ones that aren't "connected" to sound are likely deep thinkers, or forgot their "pods"!
