Positive cause
    #2529464 - 04/05/04 11:13 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

The most powerful time to be positive is when there is no reason to be positive. For positive focus is most valuable and useful not when it is an effect, but when it is a cause.

If you attempt to keep your attitude in line with circumstances, you'll be harshly and abruptly tossed around. Instead, resolve to be positive no matter what happens, and what will happen is that conditions will improve.

Rather than letting yourself be negatively influenced by the world around you, set out to provide your own positive influence.

Is your attitude normally determined by what's going on with you at the moment? Imagine how powerful it would be to turn that around, so that what's going on would be determined by your attitude.

No, everything is not going to fall magically into place just because you have a positive attitude. What will happen, though, is that you'll be far more open to the positive possibilities, and that can give you a powerful advantage.

In fact, it is precisely during the difficult times that you'll get the most value from seeing the world in a positive, life-affirming way. You'll be able to take whatever happens, and use it to move solidly forward.

I suppose that even if you're floating in a sea of shit... you'll still have that positivity to be happy about, eh?

It works for me, too. :wink:

Plus, a sea of shit would be very buoyant, so it would be easy to keep your head up. It's not that hard to find things to be positive about.

AND, since our bodies are so suited for adaptation, you won't even be able to smell it after the first couple minutes. :smile:

I highly doubt it. Contrary to popular legend, quicksand is more buoyant than water and does not "suck you down". However people drown in it all the time due to the suction formed around the legs and one's inability to pull free.

The proof is in the pudding.

That reminds me... I need to get back to work on my quicksand moat.

Yeah, one of archimedes principles states "There is a force pushing up on an object equal to the weight of liquid it displaces." Quicksand is heavier than water, so it's more buoyant.

Yeah, but you are comparing quicksand and shit.

Comparisons are no good!

What you are doing is like talking about apples and oranges.
