Dear Readers,

It’s been a wonderful journey so far, but I couldn’t have done it without you, my loyal readers.

Happy Magic Blissful Wonderful Lovely Joyful Awesome Easter to everybody!

Let me share with you the story of…

Positive Words Research After 4 Years

I am Elena Daniela Calin, 34 years old currently. I started to research positive words in 2012. A lot of things in my life led me to do this. Like Steve Jobs said: You can not connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect the dots looking backward.

So in 2012 I was researching the words GRATITUDE and APPRECIATE, not appreciation… appreciate! I was writing the family of words for these 2 words.. on paper. I got bored eventually I realized it was a lot of work to research all these positive words. In 2013 I decided to make a blog in WordPress and call it Positive Words Research because this is what I thought I was doing… I was researching positive words.

After posting some things about positive words, I decided to make a list. I was adding one by one the words in the list because I wanted to include them in my vocabulary first. Then something truly MAGIC happened. People all around the planet started commenting on the list and sharing more positive words to add to the list.

In time the list becomes the best list of positive words in the world. Since 2013 until now the website PositiveWordsResearch.com had more than 14 million views. In December 2016 plus January 2017 had more than 2,5 million views.

In time I translated the list of positive words in more languages, including Spanish, Italian, German etc.

I also made the first and single list of positive words in Romanian, my native language. The people from my country are so happy about this and they finally can embrace positive thinking because positive words are the secret to “easily crack” positive thinking and now they have it.

Two days ago I held the first course of positive words in my country and most probably in the entire world. 14 people came to that course. Everyone liked it, they were phenomenally amazed.

I have so many wonderful plans for positive words in the next years to come. When I started this project in 2013 the positive words on the internet were approximately none. Now, after more than 4 years, when you put positive words or beautiful words in google there are so many pictures with words and their explanation, lots of clouds with positive words, lots of articles written by so many websites about the extraordinary power of positive words. I am happy, I am grateful. I see my dream, in reality, it has come to fruition.

What have I learned from this journey that started in 2012?

A single person can change the world… with the help of the entire world.


Happy Easter Everyone!
Many Blessings to You and Pure Love and Light!

5 Smart Habits to Help You Stay Positive

5 Smart Habits to Help You Stay Positivehabits stay positive www.pixabay.com

We can have everything we want in this cruel world. The world may be cruel but it has everything we can ever need and want. We just have to know what it takes to get there, but knowing all the technicalities isn’t enough. There’s still one more thing that’s even more important: staying positive. Indeed, the world is a cruel place. It can knock you down a couple of times before you actually get what you want and deserve. But after those pulls and knockdowns, there will be something better that’s waiting for us.

There are loads of people who happen to have all the intellectual resources they need to succeed, but they still ended up in the opposite direction. That was because they had the wrong state of mind.  You don’t have to be one of them. One of the best things about life is that we have the freedom to dream all we want, and what makes it even better is we have the ability to decide whether to make it come true or just go on dreaming. You can start making that decision now. Here are some of the habits you need to start learning now to stay on the positive lane to success and happiness:

1. Looking at the bright side of every bad situation

No matter how smart we are at school, no matter how productive we are at work, the world can still take a turn at us. Even so, it still helps to look at the bright side of the situation, but like many things, this is something easier said than done.

When we’re faced with a difficult situation it becomes hard to notice that its only one part of an entire picture. Despite the negative outcome, there is still a bright side sitting next to our problems, we just have to shift our heads a bit, and not focus too much on our problems. Once we realize that there is still hope, we can then get back to the track. Seeing the positive situation, the next step is to look for that one thing that can turn our life back around.

2. Cultivate and live in a positive environment

This article isn’t about staying positive for a day. Rather, it’s about staying positive as long as we live. So, how do we do that? We do it by exposing ourselves to positive stimuli.

It’s going to be real hard staying positive if we live under a roof where we hear nothing curse words. Everything starts at the home. What you’re like at our own space, that’s also what you’re going to be like once you leave the gates.

So, let’s say, you’ve already cultivated a positive environment back home. The journey to staying positive doesn’t end there. You still have to observe your positive habits when you leave the house. This means you have to spend time with people with the same positive mentality as you.

3. Live slowly

People are often carried away by their daily duties that they come to do everything as they appear. They don’t have the time to think things through. As a result, their actions don’t bear positive results. And then what happens when all our effort become a waste? It builds up lots of stress in us and then all the negative thoughts sink in.

Not only does it make for an unhealthy lifestyle, it can also cause us to spend the rest of our lives working, and not having the results that we want.

Have you ever tried being in a hurry to attend a meeting, and then just when you’re a few steps away from the conference room, you realize that you forgot something back home? Can you remember the frustration you felt back then, all the negativity that sunk into your veins during that day? Well, try to double that by a thousand because if you always live life in a hurry that’s what the end of your life is going to feel like. Now, imagine that you planned everything before you got to the meeting. With that, you had the freedom to take your time to get to the venue. Can you imagine the light feeling that comes with it as you leave the office? Yes, exactly. That’s the benefit living slowly.

4. Don’t let fear hold you back

The best thing about life is that we can be whatever we want. So, don’t ever let anything or anyone hold you back from your dreams.

Imagine that you were doing well in a job, and then suddenly an opportunity knocks at your face. You knew full well that you want to take this step forward, but some part of the mind is telling you to just shrug it off because one simple mistake can ruin everything you’ve already attained. So, what do you do? Take a risk. Failures aren’t meant to be the end. If you happen to succeed in taking this risk, and then good for you, but if you don’t and that doesn’t mean you should sulk for the rest of your life. Nor does it mean that you should refrain from taking any more risks. It is in failure that we come to know success. See your downfall as a new learning opportunity.

5. Add value and positivity to someone else’s life

It’s not just about you. You also have to give back to other people. The world is comprised of positive and negative people alike. The only way for you to stay positive is if you spread the positivity all around you.

Random Thoughts On The Incredible Power of Thoughts

Aspirational-Coasters

“Aspiration: The progressive realization of a worthy ideal.” ~ quote from Aspirational Coasters

”For the man who has, will be given more… but the man who has nothing will have taken away from  him what little he has.” – Matt. 13:12

Hang on, that’s not fair. I thought God was supposed to be fair and just. Not very loving if you ask me…

Mmm, now that I’ve calmed down a little maybe there’s  more to this than meets the eye.  My Dad used to say “Nothing is as it seems.”

Over the years I’ve read so much around the simple act of thinking, 60,000 thoughts a day I’m told.

One of my gurus, Dr. Deepak Chopra, teaches that a thought is an impulse of energy and information. 60,000 thoughts must generate quite a bit of energy each day! And what of the “information” that’s attached to the energy, what’s that all about? Someone told me I was the same as a tree, just different information.

OK, I’ll cut to the chase.

I’ve nestled into the belief that says there’s a strong link (infallible?) between my thinking and the circumstances of my life. I’m very content with my life so far. And I see every day that whatever I’ve been thinking about actually appears in my life. Ever so quietly. Subtle, easy to miss at first.

My life-manta as I call it, has appeared in physical form. My mantra’s no secret. It’s “I’m Happy, Healthy, Wise, and Wealthy.” I think about that every day with a heart posture of gratitude.

Coming back to my opening Biblical quote. What do “poor” people think about all day? What dominates their thoughts? I wonder, would it be thoughts of abundance and gratitude. And what do the “wealthy” think about all the time?

These days they say “the gap (between rich and poor) is  widening”. Same principle I suggest. What you think about you get more of. Think abundance, you get more of it. Think lack and poverty, you get more of that.

“.. but the man who has nothing will have taken away from him who little he has.” The rich get richer, the poor get poorer because of the way they are habitually thinking. All that energy and information going the wrong way. “Wrong” meaning lack and deprivation.

My life mantra has been a delight. It’s taken patience and tenacity at times but it works. I am happy, healthy, wise and wealthy. Yes, please. Thank you.

How to Succeed When Fighting Against the Odds

How to Succeed When Fighting Against the Odds

How to Succeed When Fighting Against the Odds

Success rarely comes without any challenges or hurdles.  It is far too common to see people succeeding after a reasonable delay. So what’s so special about inspiring success stories?

Once in a while, we come across individuals who rose from anonymity and the depths of despair to become a scion of success and inspiration. These people succeed when the odds are stacked against them when the chips are down and all seems lost. This kind of success is sweeter than anything else in the world. Would you want to know how do they do it?

In order to know how to rise against the odds, we must know why most people cannot do the same.

Why do we give up?

People give up easily when the going gets tough because they are afraid of failure. We all come across a point in our lives when we fail numerous times and nothing we do seems to work for us. These are the times when we have to push ourselves the hardest and tap into our mental strength to see those failures eventually become a success.   It takes years of training to think positively and for the brain to have that mental strength. There is a lot of hard work involved and it is something that people are afraid of when it comes to following their dreams. No one is willing to put in the required time, effort and patience to endure the hardships.

Until all people are willingly going to accept the fact that nothing comes without a price in this world, there will be fewer success stories and more people listening to them.  If you think you have little time to develop your mental strength owing to your regular job or any other work, think again! We all were given an equal number of hours and seconds in a day, it’s only a matter of some utilizing it to its best, while others just not being able to manage it properly.

We also give up because of being surrounded by discouraging emotions and people. Hearing negative things about our capabilities and that too on a consistent basis can lead many of us to actually believing in them and hence becoming weak enough to give up easily, sometimes, even without trying. You must develop a strong will power to remain unaffected and immune to what others are saying. Plus, choosing your friends wisely can help a lot. Stick around people who are successful and have nothing but positivity to offer. Mere observation of such personalities can teach you a thing or two about fighting against the odds

Another big reason why our lives blow up in the face under tough circumstances is because of our lack of patience. It’s a huge struggle for us to be constantly patient especially when nothing seems to be going according to plans. Our impatience either makes us do something stupid or leads us to give up before the goal could have been achieved.  Changing this habit can make a lot of difference.

What needs to be done?

The first thing that one should do when a storm comes is held the ground. The same is true for you as well. Instead of getting bogged down, it’s important to create processes and methods to get yourself out of the rut.

Be creative

You must have heard that tough times call for tough measures. However, tough measures without any thought going into them cannot help you out. You have to be creative with your solutions when there is little that you can do to change your situations. Before you take any decision, you need to have multiple ideas in mind. The first alternative that comes to the mind in such a situation is pretty obvious that have been used earlier also. However, if the solution would have been so simple, you wouldn’t have probably called it a tough situation.  Truly creative alternatives remain hidden in the depths of mind which require too deep and persistent thoughts to be revealed.  See the bigger picture; you may discover something that can help you.

Find support

As you look back at your life, you would find that all your success had some minor or major contributions from someone you knew. Asking for help during tough times won’t make you appear weaker. There are too many of us who suffer in isolation, just because we are afraid of asking for help. By hiding our hard times from our connections, we will end up feeling more miserable. Everyone faces challenges in their lives and if you share them with people you know, it can become easier to overcome them. Always remember, you are seeking support today, however, you can always return the favor when the time comes.

Keep feeding your mind with positive thoughts

Just like the body needs all sorts of healthy food to recover from any illness, the mind also requires a healthy dosage of positive thoughts and inspiration to face challenging times. Talking to leaders, achievers, and successful people who have fought against the odds in their lives is a good way to start. Reading their biographies or their articles will also help you prepare effective strategies to face challenging situations.  Feeding your mind with positiveness will do a lot for increasing your mental strength and as they say, most wars are won or lost in the minds before they are fought on the battlefield.
