Why 'Positivity' Is Broken

Why 'Positivity' Is Broken

Welcome to this edition of the Weekly Circle—where we start the week with a few ideas that make us think.

This week, we’re thinking about Positivity and why at times it's misunderstood. Walt Disney put it best:

I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.

A 19th century New England mental-healing experiment uncovered the core theory behind positivity: thoughts are causative. In normal English, your thoughts dictate your actions, which dictate your habits, which dictates your character, which...you get the idea. Life is complex and at times difficult, and it's ignorant to be 'positive all the time', ignoring these crucial personal growth spurts that are rooted in negative events and emotions. 

We'd love to hear from you!

What do you think about positivity? Do you agree or disagree? Why?

That's all for this week! I wish you all a week full of abundance and opportunity 😊.

Warmly,
Jesal
