“When you appreciate the good, the good appreciates.”
—Tal Ben-Shahar, American/Israeli author & teacher
On most days, and for most of my life, I’ve had a half full, positivity bias toward life.
How about you?
Although it is easy to see areas in our world that need work, I see it as all of our jobs to do this work with both body and soul. Seeing and appreciating the good in others and our world seems to have a pulling attractiveness to make things even better.
If you research what drives us, you will find considerable evidence that our ability to positively influence our communities, better ourselves personally, and have a values-centered purpose are key.
How would having a greater positivity bias help you more fully appreciate all the good in your world?
Consider the idea of keeping an appreciation or gratitude journal for a least a week to see what appreciates in your life.
