Monday Motivation: Practice Happiness

I was listening to the radio on my way home last Friday (the day doesn’t matter)… Michael Franti was here in Denver visiting one of the local stations before his concert.

The DJ asked him the coolest question, to which Michael Franti had a most amazing response.

The question was:

You are so positive all of the time. How do you stay so upbeat?

The response was:

Staying positive can be hard and it takes a lot of practice. It’s just like how you get good at anything. You have to practice. And eventually you will get better and better. Then being positive will be easy!

Lately all I have been able to see is the negative

I need more practice being positive

Monday Motivation: A Brand New Ending

“Every person was born to live out the dream they have inside”

“There is a thief in your mind who is after your dreams, his name is DOUBT. If you see him, call the cops and keep him away from the kids, cuz he is wanted for murder. For he has killed more dreams than failure ever did. He wears many disguises and, like a virus, will leave you blinded and divided and will turn you into a ‘kinda’.”

“If you ‘kinda’ want something, then you will ‘kinda’ get the results you want. What is that dream? What ignites that spark? You can’t ‘kinda’ want that, you gotta want it with every part of your whole heart.”

“You will fall many times, but who’s counting?”

“Pain is life. But you can choose what type. Either the pain on the road to success, or the pain of being haunted with regret.”
