Commandment #1 – Be Positive At All Times

My commandments begin!

And by positive I mean no “Venting”, whining, or complaining about things where you have no influence.  force yourself to be upbeat if you have to.   People have a limited brain capacity and naturally occurring bad thoughts crowd out anything else.  After a while you get talented at being negative, which is a road that leads nowhere good.  Go ahead and evict bad thoughts and negativity from your head as much as possible.  By and large a forced positivity is better than a natural negativity, and will crowd out negativity.

This is very difficult to and I do not always follow through on it, but nonetheless, that’s what you must do.
