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
Some people will weaponize your weaknesses against you to manipulate the outcome to their advantage. They'll begin to define you by your weaknesses and your failures so they can manipulate you. They'll tell you that you're not a good person because you've hit a rough patch in life. They'll tell you that you're being "mean" when you establish boundaries, because you're supposed to be a "nice person". You are not defined by your weaknesses. Manipulative people will say anything to win an argument. Think about the things you perceive to be a weakness. Your challenge today is to answer this question: What weaknesses do you need to overcome?

Hey everybody. So today is day nine of my 30 days of positivity challenge. And originally what popped in my mind was that people do business with people they like. And I say that not to come from the perspective of being a people pleaser, but just really from the perspective that you can be the smartest person in the room, you can be the most beautiful person in the world, but that's only going to get you with so far, because people are going to continue to do business with people they like. So the inner light from you, really has to carry you and sustain you in all of your relationships. But as I was thinking about that particular topic, my mom called me and I got derailed and she started to talk to me about humility.
She started to talk to me about weakness and how you have to live above your weaknesses, because people will exploit your weaknesses when they identify them and try to weaponize what they believe to be a weakness against you. Because they know your weakness. If they know you're kind, if they know you're generally a nice person, they will then try to take those things and manipulate situations in order to get the results that they want, because they want to tap into what they believe is a weakness. They will take your kindness and try to weaponize it against you and say, "How dare you push back on this? How dare you tell me that you have a standard or a line that I can't cross, because you're supposed to be nice. You're the nice person."
And so I will continue to believe that you should always carry that. Like never let anybody steal that joy from you. And I know that we're all human and sometimes we do fall victim to lower frequencies of engagement with people when we allow other people to trigger that within us, because we all have it within us. But you have to live above your weaknesses and identify your weaknesses. And she was talking to me about just making sure that I maintain my joy to any challenge that I'm experiencing, because we all experience challenge. And this is a challenging time for all of us. Emotions are high. Negativity is high.
There is a lot of uncertainty going around. There's a lot of positivity going around and I'm extremely blessed during this time to have the people in my life that are continuing to feed me the positivity that I need in order to continue to grow in the direction that I'm supposed to grow in. And so for anybody that is living in a scenario where you're constantly being pulled away from the core of who you are, which is happy and beautiful and supportive, and all those things grow beyond that weakness. Identify that there may be those times and those challenges in your life that try to take you away from the core of who you are, which is a happy, beautiful, supporting and loving person. But you have to continue to fight. Life is a fight. It's hard, it's hard, but don't allow anybody to weaponize your beauty against you. Please.
