• How to be a Better Person

    Life is full of challenges, and each of us is faced with many of them as we go along. Yet when we are able to face challenges with calmness and composure, we can respond as our best selves. Indeed, every challenge – whether big or small – represents an opportunity to better ourselves. Here are a few words of wisdom on how to better oneself through conscious intention, ease and grace. Surround Yourself with Positivity There’s an old saying that goes “Whether you’re an optimist or a pessimist, you’re right.” Like many old adages, there’s a grain of truth therein. Our thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes shape reality. So when you believe in the worst-case scenario, when you see the glass half-empty rather than half-full, when you think that all is lost and there is no hope – you’re right. If, however, you make a solid commitment to being positive, focusing your thoughts and beliefs on the advantages, and concentrating on being grateful for all that you have, then you may be surprised at how quickly your reality reflects these positive thoughts. Surround yourself not just in your own positivity, but that of others too: minimize the time you spend around negative or draining people. They only serve to bring you down. Instead, seek out uplifting people and be one yourself.
