“So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach so we never dare to ask the universe for it. I’m the proof that you can ask the universe for it.” -Jim Carrey
“Positive thinking is more than just a tagline. It changes the way we behave. And I firmly believe that when I am positive, it not only makes me better, but it also makes those around me better.” -Harvey Mackay
“You’ve got to accentuate the positive,
Eliminate the negative,
Latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with Mister In-Between” – 1944 song by Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer
Shield Of Positivity
A common trait in successful people is their positive worldview. They look at the world and see it through rose colored glasses or as I like to say “my blood type is b positive.” This way of thinking isn’t naive or misguided as the pessimistic person would have you believe, instead it acts as a shield for when life gets difficult. Did you have an audition you weren’t happy with? It’s a learning experience you can grow from and a great story for your future memoir. Did you get into a fight with a friend? You can use those emotions in your scene work. Things are not always perfect but if you focus on the positive you will see solutions instead of problems. You remind yourself of all the good in the world and all of the possibilities.
When my birthday buddy Jim Carrey was first starting out, he used the power of positive thinking. Everyday he would tell himself that he was talented, people wanted to work with him, and that the offers for lead roles were on the way. He even wrote himself a big check to help him physically visualize his future success. Jim was relentless in his positive beliefs that he could make it big. We all know how that turned out. Keep your positive shields up dear ones and when you need outside support we’re here for you at Shari Shaw Studios.
