Have a routine to launch your day with a good mood!

To manage my monkey mind (worries, racing thoughts, fear) as shown on the Monkey Mind Unisex T-Shirt I'm wearing (available for purchase at our Positive Masters e-commerce store inside our website), I start my day by journaling my wins from the previous day, sleep, any dreams, action plan for the day, and ideas for my most important project or two for the day. I love to do this while listening to electronic dance music, my happy music! I also express my thanks to my tech toys for being a huge part of my life! 🤪   Have a routine to launch your day with a good mood, so you're ready to rock your work on your hustle day or spend quality time...

Instead, like a game, you're enjoying your work and willing to face the obstacles and failures that come with the challenges. This is a great place to be where you get into a flow, so much so, that time flies by because you're loving the process. The more difficult the game, the greater your rewards will be for your personal growth. The money you...

"When we are no longer able to change a situation . . . we are challenged to change ourselves." Viktor E. Frankl

"When we are no longer able to change a situation . . . we are challenged to change ourselves."Viktor E. Frankl Rather than focus on the things that you can't control, focus on what you can control, especially your thoughts, perception, knowledge, skills, and ideas.

In a world that can be cruel at any moment, you can make it crueler or better.

You can choose to create life.That's easy.But what's your intent?Not so easy.Unlike suffering, which can be be intentional or unintentional,kindness can only be felt when it's intentional.Compassion and patience take effort.Whereas, anger and impatience are effortless.In a world that can be cruel at any moment,you can make it crueler or better.- Positive Masters, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 9/14/2020 -As I dive deeper into my studies of psychology, philosophy, sociology, mental health, neuroscience, history, and other fields about humans, I came up with this poem. Some humans can be so destructive, yet others can be so loving. On the bright side, throughout history, many people have done amazing things, even finding purpose and happiness under the cruelest and most heartbreaking situations. Be...
