First things first... Why should you care?
Our emotional state dictates the quality of our life. The 30 Days of Positivity Challenge is a daily personal challenge designed to condition the mind and body to maintain a positive emotional state. Our mindset contributes to 80% of our success. So, this challenge forces you to reprogram your mindset for success. When we're in a good mood and have a positive mindset, the probability of us being more productive, having better relationships, and making more money goes up. On the other hand, when we're in a bad mood and have a negative mindset, the opposite tends to occur.
Imagine living in a mansion but you're always upset, stressed, anxious, or sad. On the other hand, imagine living in a townhouse but you're always peaceful and happy. Your quality of life has everything to do with how you feel about yourself and the world around you. Your focus becomes your future. So, focus on nurturing a positive emotional state. Our feelings give us clues about the state of our emotions and environment, and tell us if we're progressing in the right direction. Progress equals growth. This challenge helps you to grow positive feelings to attract positive people and things into your life.
Let's get started with today's challenge!
Let's Get To The Point
Everyone has different motives for connecting with one another. Sometimes people genuinely want to connect with you because they appreciate your presence. Sometimes, they want to gain something from you. Think about the relationships in your life. Your challenge today is to answer this question: How am I serving these relationships, and how are these relationships serving me?

So today is day 14 of my 30 days of positivity challenge. And today I started off with my morning meditation and listened to a few podcasts; one by Jay Shetty and the other by a woman that goes by Brené Brown, that's her actual name, and she's interviewing Dr. Vivek Murthy. And in the podcast with Brené Brown they were talking about loneliness and the dimensions of loneliness and how it manifests itself in different people. And Dr. Vivek said something profound in the podcast and I'll paraphrase it here. He said, "That people will approach you sometimes not out of genuine connection, but to satisfy an insecurity within themselves. You have to be careful with those types of people because they could damage you."
It reminds me of that person that goes on a job interview, and they're saying all the right things, doing all the right things, their resume is amazing, and then they hear, "I'm sorry, you're overqualified." And they get upset. They get upset. Instead of saying, "You know what? I am overqualified." They come from a place of lack and they beg and they scrape and they say, "Oh my God, how dare they say that I'm overqualified. Why can't I get this job? Why can't I get this job?" You don't really want that job. You're just trying to satisfy an insecurity within yourself, whether it be finances or just getting to the next level so that you can have that title. Because all of that no was telling you is that you deserve better, but you're still coming from a place of lack. You don't need to beg. Even in relationships, we see it in relationships. When you get a certain type of rejection, it sometimes means that you're overqualified. Lean into it. You know what? I am overqualified. Thank you. And leave it there. There's no need to be mad. There's no need to be angry. You process and you move on to something better, to something that life is trying to push you toward.
So with that, I will land this plane and go on my walk for this morning. Hope you all have a wonderful day. My name's Don and I'm overqualified. Peace.
