Robert H. Shutter said and I quote, “the only place your dreams become impossible is in your own thinking.”
Good day everyone, how is your day going? I am delighted to write about positivity after seeing it as a contest topic in Altruistic creative writing contest. Positivity, Positivity, Positivity. Though it is a familiar word, however, this word plays an active role in the life of every living being.

   Although a lot of people have defined positivity, however, I see positivity as the ability to: neglect unfavourable conditions, adhere strongly to favourable conditions and hope for desired result without giving room for any constrain. Hence, positivity is an essential attitude everyone must possess in order to attain success.


  • It creates reasons to rejoice in awful situations: “we can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorns have roses.”- Alphonse Karr
    Therefore, positivity spots out the advantages in awful situations, which will give room for happiness in the shackle of dreadful circumstances.

  • It convert obstacle to opportunity: Due to the fact that positivity is an attitude which allows people to think favourably, hence, positivity lead to the generation of ideas that are capable of converting obstacle to opportunity.

  • It recreates reality: feeling positive in awful situation help to relieve the burden placed on the prefrontal cortex as a result of unwanted incidence, which will consequently create good condition for the brain to think about how to transform unfavourable situations to favourable ones.

  • It promotes potential: positive believe drives people to do better than what they have ever achieved, which usually cause increament in the potential of every carrier of positive attitude and it also showcase the unique special qualities embedded in them.

   Rodolfo costa said and I quote, “cultivate an optimistic mind, use your imagination, always consider alternatives, and dare to believe that you can make possible what others think is impossible.” Therefore, no matter how horrible the situation around you may be, with positivity, nothing is unachievable.
