Inspirational blog Problems we target... In this era of competition infested industries, the primacy of staying positive deserves due diligence. Cut throat competition in most sectors today has its pros and cons. Competitive markets make people strive to give their best. Nevertheless, a healthy mind is essential to take advantage of such points. The importance of a strong will to solve day to day problems cannot be deemphasized. It makes us ponder what stops people from consistently staying positive? We have a few factors listed here:
  • Stress
  • Cynicism
  • Mundane life
  • Negative peers
  • Environmental factors
  • Lacking self-confidence
  • And much more...
These factors act as a deterrent to positivity in both work and personal life. It’s no secret why there is a surge in the number of psychiatrists, couples counselors, etc…

Which overlooked qualities shape you into being positive?

Our positivity blog is obliged to introduce you to some overlooked qualities that form people into being positive. Vaunted qualities like vision, intelligence and action are only secondary to unsung qualities we mentioned below. We are just discussing some of the overlooked ones, constructively suggest more qualities or vent your heated anger in comments. Positivity blog
  • Gratitude: Showing appreciation towards others, helps gain a statuesque image for you. It would be remiss of anyone to not work on their gratitude.
  • Compassion: It would be outright foolhardy to pursue positive mindset without showing compassion. The oldest rule in the book is to treat others, the way you treat yourself.
  • Resilience: Showing resilience in the face of bedlams makes good people great. Resilience turns problems that are staring right at you, into bated issues.
We look forward to your suggestions in every stage of this blog’s progress. The posts in first few weeks would be a harbinger of awesomeness, which you can expect in the long run. We promise to show due diligence to your constructive criticism.

Motivating yourself with kindness

Motivating yourself with kindness

The thing about motivation is it comes with an expiry date. You need to keep motivating yourself regularly. More importantly, you should motivate yourself with kindness. When you are trying to make it through a tough phase in life, harsh voices inside the head, doesn’t help.

A lot of us would agree on the significance of compassion. Your compassion yields best results, only when it includes you. Don’t be harsh on yourself. Give room for mistakes and accept your personality.

self motivation

Observe how you talk to yourself, especially when going through difficulties. Does your mind speak in a way of patting your back? Does it sound really compassionate and soothes you in? Does it encourage you with positive words only? If you said yes to all the questions, that’s the right way to motivate yourself. If you said no, you need to add some simple mind tweaks.

We tend to believe harsh inner voice would result in self-improvement. A lot of us at least think that way. We are unforgiving of ourselves in our harsh criticisms. Sometimes we tend to go overboard, thereby being brutal to ourselves. What we emphasize in those situations, is to tweak your thinking.

Being harsh in criticism isn’t necessarily the way forward. Would you be harsh in your criticism, if it was your loved ones instead of you? Ideally you wouldn’t be, because it wounds the relationship. Similarly, self-criticisms can make your conscience and heart, distant.

When it comes to self motivation, kind words are more effective than harsh inner voices. You need to gather as much relaxation and hope as you can, especially when you are already down. Inner criticism doesn’t stop you from repeating the mistakes in future. Instead, it develops stress and attacks self-esteem.

Self-criticisms make you conscious about the pitfalls. It doesn’t instill self-confidence, rather gets you nervous. Following procrastination, you are more likely to berate yourself in worst ways. In my personal experience, the more you berate yourself, the more likely you are going to postpone things again. That is how stress works on average human minds.

motivating yourselfThe points discussed above, leads us to one straightforward question – how to stop being harsh on ourselves? Being harsh on ourselves isn’t weakness, its human nature. It can be undone by exercising caution. When you catch yourself red handed for berating yourself, freeze your thought process. Do not try to argue over what you said or play some nasty tug of war in your mind. Instead, take a deep breath and relax.

Do not engage your conscious and inner critic to get into an argument. Understand, self-criticism means to help you. It’s the natural response aimed to deter repeating of specific actions, which lead to failures in life. When it gets harsh, it’s time to acknowledge the help and bid your byes to your inner critic.

Make sure to show kindness to everyone, including you. Don’t consciously motivate yourself with kindness. When your motivation seems harsh, inject kindness into it. Such an approach would do wonders in day to day life.

Are you being too nice – Find out now!

Are you being too nice – Find out now!

Do you often ask yourself “Am i too nice”? Growing up, we were always encouraged to be the nice guy/girl. Truth be told, being too nice is overrated. Are people really happy with overly nice people? Are the nicest of people happy with themselves?

nice guy

Truth be told, being so nice often leads to resentment. People fill their minds with so much internal anger. Internal anger causes problems in professional and personal lives. It directly impacts your positivity and productivity. Worst case of internal anger happens when it affects personal lives.

Overly nice people do not hold others accountable for things they agreed to do. Eventually, they help in the tasks, which others should be doing. Imagine a manager getting involvement in micromanagement day in and day out. It wouldn’t prove helpful to the manager or the organization.

What people fail to see, when they are behaving too nice, is it doesn’t help others too. People don’t get to know what you are thinking. You often end up sugarcoating everything for people. Too much niceties robs you of an honest relationship. At the end, there will be no true friend, you can count on.

When you are being too nice, you don’t say it, when others are doing things in an inappropriate way. Such a lack of genuine communication, kills other people’s ability to do things differently. They are never going to fix problems, which they never realized. Too much niceties backfire on you, more often than not.

The being too nice pattern, has to stop. Telling people the whole truth, nothing but the truth alone, sets you free. You got to state the absolute facts in the way they are. Misrepresentation of facts is just a form of manipulation. Instead of manipulating people into liking you, express yourself admirably authentic.

Let the other person show up and fix what’s broke. Give them a chance to show their real colors. You can’t judge him/her without providing an opportunity. Trying to make them look good, when they are not is stressful. It’s stress for you and everybody else. You don’t want to get jaded that way.

The most important reason why you should stop being too nice is the bad image you would create on yourself. The people, for whom you are acting too nice, won’t appreciate it often. They will not find it easy to trust you, when you are putting a front. People can spot a pretend from a distance.

Imagine you are being in a relationship and your partner doesn’t express real feelings. You can’t trust what he/she says or promises. Vice versa, when you are saying nice words more often that you should, you are putting pressure on your partner to say them as many times.

When you are being too nice in a relationship, you are literally asking your partner to pretend. No one likes to be in a relationship where he/she has to pretend. All these points discussed about niceness, brings us to the ultimate question – is kindness killing you?

Are you a nice person or not?

Try answering these simple questions to know if you are nice. Every question only has two possible answers – yes or no. The number of yeses in your answers helps rate you in scale of nicety. Brutal honesty is what we would need of you, while answering the below questions.
