I want to share with you a story that I read online the other day that really helped me focus on becoming the type of person that I want to be - a positive and compassionate individual.
 
In the story, a man living in a remote area in a small country travels to a local village to speak to a wise man. He says to the wise man, "I feel like there are two dogs inside me. One dog is positive, loving, kind and optimistic and then I have this fearful, pessimistic, angry and negative dog. The two dogs fight all the time. I don't know who is going to win." The wise man thinks for a moment and responds, "I know who is going to win. The one you feed the most. So feed the positive dog."

We all have a positive and negative dog inside of us. It's part of our human nature. The key is to feed the positive dog and starve the negative dog. The more we feed the positive dog the bigger it gets and the stronger it becomes. The actions are simple. We just need to make them a habit and do them every day. Here are a few ways to feed the positive dog:
  • Practice Gratitude - You can't be stressed and thankful at the same time. Gratitude is like muscle, the more you exercise it the stronger it gets. Take 10 minutes each day and make a list of what you are thankful for. You will fill your body and brain with costless and priceless anti-depressants.
  • Smile More - It enhances your serotonin levels and uplifts you.
  • Read Uplifting Books or Devotionals - Make a habit out of reading some type of positive material each day. I recommend the first 15 minutes when you get and the last 15 minutes before you go to bed. This will help you begin and end your day positively.
  • Reach Out - Call or visit someone who has made a difference in your life and thank them.
  • Learn to Laugh - Watch a funny movie that makes you belly laugh or go see a comedy show. Keeping laughter in your life is one the easiest ways to maintain a positive attitude. 
One more tidbit that I like to keep in mind while trying to stay positive is this: Input = Output. You get out what you put in. What you feed your body, spiritually, emotionally, and physically directly affects your output. If you put in negativity, you will only generate more negativity. Commit today to generate positivity in your life and the lives of others.
