Be intentional about being your best self.

Updated: Jul 30, 2023



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

Humans can't be positive all the time. That's why this is called the "30 Days of Positivity Challenge". We're predisposed to negativity. We see it in our media and even in our interactions with our friends and family. The media constantly promotes negativity while giving positivity a back seat. This is because generally, people find drama and discourse entertaining. Unfortunately, it's rare that we find fulfillment in seeing positive things happen for other people because we're unhappy with ourselves. But, when we condition our minds to find fulfillment in positivity we begin to find more joy in good things. Then, when we see someone else doing well it doesn't make us feel inadequate, because we've done the work to ensure we're happy within ourselves. Your challenge today is to answer this question: How can you promote positivity within your circle of friends and family?

Donnie Thomas:

Hey everybody. So on day 10 of my 30 days of positivity challenge, I thought it would be interesting to answer the question "what happens when you can't be positive all the time?" I love this question. It actually came from one of my best friends yesterday as we were talking and he said, "What happens when you can't be positive all the time?"

Donnie Thomas:

I said that's a great question because that's the reason why this is a challenge. If it were easy it wouldn't be a challenge. It is a challenge to be intentional about being positive because we are inundated with so much negativity all of the time. We are predisposed to be negative. It's easy to be negative.

Donnie Thomas:

Look at our media. We delight in negativity. We delight when we see somebody doing that. Oh, such and so got locked up. That's juicy. Oh, such and so's marriage is failing. Oh, I can't wait to see that episode. What type of garbage is that? What type of nonsense is that? We are predisposed to be negative, so I will do everything that I can to be intentional about being positive.

Donnie Thomas:

But it's always so interesting, because we're so hard on ourselves. We don't give ourselves the benefit of the doubt. We forget that we are human and we will mess up. We are made of highs and lows. No company on this Earth is making money, profit, all of the time. There are ups, there are downs. Nobody on this Earth has the best life all of the time. There are ups, there are downs.

Donnie Thomas:

I can't count how many times I've gone to a church service and there's a specific section where they say, "And for all of the backslides." What do you think that's for? It's because they're tapping into your humanity and they understand that nobody is perfect.

Donnie Thomas:

But for those of us who are on a continuous journey to be intentional about being a better version of ourselves every day, you are damn right I am going to meet the challenge.

Donnie Thomas:

But then you have those individuals that will try to, as I mentioned yesterday, weaponize your positivity and your beauty against you in those moments of vulnerability, where you are negative, where you do tap into those lower frequencies of engagement with people, to try to tear you down and make you believe that all of the things that you're striving for aren't valid, and they aren't valid in their thinking.

Donnie Thomas:

Don't believe them. Be strong. You are perfect as you are. You're human. You will make mistakes, but as long as you are being intentional about being the best version of you that you can be, you can't let anybody take that away from you. Can't nobody take it away from you.

Donnie Thomas:

So again to answer the question what happens when you can't be positive all the time, you grow above it. You work through your weakness. So I hope that was helpful. Hope you all have a good day. Peace.
