Do You Need to Be a Positive Thinker?

I recently joined The Minimalist Podcast to discuss the Pros & Cons of Positive Thinking.

Here are some of the questions we tackled:

  • How do I stay motivated when I see my contemporaries succeeding while I continue struggling?
  • How do I balance positive thinking with healthy skepticism?
  • How do I stay positive despite the anguish from past abuse?

That Person Who Doesn’t like You?

They have at least 10 people who don’t like them for similar or worse reasons.

Don’t let being disliked be the thing that stops you.

We’re all disliked. No exceptions.

Some of us just know how to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Disagreeing with the Minimalists

“How can I be forthright with my friends without offending them?”

“What is the best way to agree to disagree?”

“How do you support the people you love when you disagree with their choices?”

I recently had a great conversation with Josh and Ryan (AKA The Minimalists) on disagreement, arguments, and conflict.

Check out our episode here:

Choose to Make Choices

When you say…

“Because I don’t trust my own judgment, I’m going to let so and so make my decisions for me”

You’re really saying…

“I trust my own judgment to make good decisions about who I should outsource my decision-making to.”

Every decision, including the decision to delegate your decisions to another, begins with an act of faith in your own judgment.

If you’re following a path because of blind faith in what someone else observed, claimed, or experienced, you’re doing it wrong. You don’t have to always make the right choice, but you do need to take ownership of the decision if you truly want to call it a choice.

Question: Why are you doing the things you do?

If your answer is any variation of “Because so and so told me to,” please take the time to find a better why.
