Welcome to Positive Masters where we develop our mindset and passion projects. 

In this video, let’s study and work together for two 1-hour Pomodoros (study and work sessions). Be sure to make your work space your happy place with technology that increases your productivity, a comfortable chair and desk, and trinkets and lights that brighten your mood. 

For this study and work with me video, we have forest wind to make you feel like you’re in the middle of a forest. Imagine yourself working at a table on the porch of a cabin in the mountains or at a picnic table in a park surrounded by trees and cool breeze. Aaahhhh. 

I’m a lawyer, small business person, and retired politician from Hawaii. My passion projects are writing fiction and creating content about mindset and mental health. 

I’m happy to have you as my study and work partner. Together, we can push through our ups and downs in our quest to improve ourselves and create value for others. We can’t control outside influences, but we can control our effort to learn, develop our skills, and bolster our relationships. That is my mission and the mission of Positive Masters. 

Enjoy Positive Masters’ blog, podcast, videos, and products at https://positivemasters.com to strengthen your mindset and build your passion projects to boost your happiness and counter any anxiety, sadness, or anger you may be experiencing. Wishing you well! 

With Warmest Aloha, 

Jon Riki Karamatsu

Aloha!

In this Youtube video, let’s study and work together for three 45-minute Pomodoros (study or work sessions), so we can get a step closer to our goals! 

In the first two Pomodoros (study and work sessions), I worked on the fourth draft of my sci-fi and fantasy screenplay. In the third Pomodoro (study and work session), I created audiograms from my fifth podcast episode “5: Positive Masters Show – Get Better Sleep.” 

I spent hours handpicking each song in this video from the catalogs of music I purchased the licenses for while I studied and worked on my passion projects. The vibe I got from the lofi and chill songs had to blend well with my concentration on my studies and work – soothing tunes and steady rhythm that play in the background while I crush my passion projects. 

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a lawyer, small business person, and retired politician from Hawaii. My passion projects are writing fiction and creating content about mindset and mental health. 

I’m happy to have you as my study and work partner. Together, we can push through our ups and downs in our quest to improve ourselves and create value for others.

What is your mantra? Is there a word or phrase that inspires and motivates you?


What is your mantra? Is there a #word or #phrase that #inspires and #motivates you? Many Buddhists chant #mantras or have them sounded internally in one’s thoughts. They are either repeated continuously for some time or just sounded once. Mantras can keep our mind awakened with a crystal clear #vision of our lives and world filled with #love and #positivity . A #mantra can #motivate us to keep working on a practice that helps us maintain our positive #lifestyle .

Of the many #practices I do to keep myself #happy and motivated, it’s amazing how this simple #practice of speaking your mantra daily can boost your entire your day. For example, my mantra is “gratitude.” Gratitude is a practice in itself. I learned how to be #grateful from my mom since I was a little kid. She would always be telling me about how good and useful certain products are. While driving, she would compliment on how smooth a road was. From the moment I wake up, I tell myself, “I’m grateful to be alive.” I’m super grateful to be able to strive for all kinds of ideas. I’m extremely grateful for all my loved ones. On my bad days, by focusing on all the things I’m grateful for, I’m able to get some wins. In fact, my suffering has played a role in expanding my gratitude, which I wrote about in previous posts.

Pictured on my wrist is a bracelet with “Gratitude” engraved on it by My Intent @myintent . Also pictured on my wrist is my Jodo Shu Buddhist prayer beads from its headquarters in Kyoto, Japan, given to me by one of the head Bishops when he was in Hawaii in 2018.

Everyday speak out your mantra and attack your day with the light of positivity!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

Exercise is a Super Practice


I ran just under 3 miles in the crisp air. Exercise is one of the key practices to boost our physical, mental, and spiritual health. It’s a super habit, along with sleep and gratitude that makes us feel unstoppable with what we set ourselves out to do!

Great article on 7 steps to be happy.


Great article on 7 steps to be happy. Here they are with my interpretation and input! Strive for a great day everyday!

  1. Have something to look forward to: Plans with a friend or a treat for yourself such as nice dish or dessert.
  2. Manage your mood: Do what gives you a feeling of control. Avoid doing things that throws your emotions off, save it for later in the day.
  3. Eat breakfast: Studies show that breakfast makes us feel emotionally happier.
  4. Do something you dread: Getting something done that is challenging or has been bothering you provides a sense of accomplishment.
  5. Send a “thank you” email or text.
  6. Plan how you’ll deal with challenges: Think about the worst that could happen and it probably won’t but if it does, you will feel prepared and ready to handle the issue.
  7. Kiss somebody you love: I don’t have anyone to kiss so I’ll pretend. When I do have someone to kiss, I will definitely kiss her whenever we go our separate ways.
