Hello Positopians,

Mandy and Jonathan here!

Happy July!

We hope you are enjoying the sunshine of summer.

Eckhart Tolle once said, 

“Accept - then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. Make it your friend and ally, not your enemy. This will miraculously transform your whole life.”

Often in our lives we have to take many big breaths, pause, and think...this is going to be one heck of a journey. When embracing obstacles, the lemonade of life's lemons can be extremely sweet and satisfying, but making it requires patience and practice. Try it in the little dilemmas, and you might find your big problems are sweetened with a new perspective.

It's of course, easier said than done but it's always good to have reminders and to remember that, in the words of Ryan Holiday, “The obstacle in the path becomes the path. Never forget, within every obstacle is an opportunity to improve our condition.” 

There are some large things happening in the world right now but here are some tiny things to hopefully help make your day...

Changing this 1 word in your thoughts can boost mental toughness

Written by Steve Magness, CNBC

Psychologists have found that when we use first-person pronouns (e.g., “I can do 20 pushups,” or “We can get this project done in time.”) as part of our inner dialogue, we create a self-immersed world — and that’s not always a good thing...
