Be happy by yourself. Take action on your curiosity to spark joy in your life. A relationship is a bonus only if it’s a positive one.


Be happy by yourself. Take action on your curiosity to spark joy in your life. A relationship is a bonus only if it's a positive one.

Be happy by yourself. Take action on your curiosity to spark joy in your life. A relationship is a bonus only if it’s a positive one.

Be happy by yourself. 
Take action on your curiosity to spark joy in your life.
A relationship is a bonus only if it’s a positive one.

When you’re happy by yourself, you’re less reliant on outside influences to be happy. I apply many of the 70+ mindset, lifestyle, and financial practices I’ve gathered to maintain a positive mindset. Taking action on my curiosity has been a huge factor in increasing my desire to learn and gain more skills that I can apply to ideas I have to develop a service or product to hopefully add value to the lives of others. Thus, by taking action on my curiosity, I go on adventures in my life that have a purpose beyond me, to positively impact others and the greater society. This helps me to be happier and more fulfilled. There are a slew of other actions I take daily, several times a week, or monthly, to keep my morale positive, which I’ll share with you in the future.

Once you’re happy by yourself, you can allow a relationship into your life. As studies have shown, a good relationship can make you happy, and a bad relationship can make you miserable. In the latter, your life would be much better if you were single. I strongly believe that you must shield your happiness from people who are moody, angry, jealous, selfish, and cold-hearted. Such negative people can suck out all of your good energy up in seconds so interact with these people only when you have to.

You may feel pressured to date, get married, and have children because your family expects this, or you believe this is what everyone is suppose to do. Again, if you’re happy by yourself, then it’s a bonus when you date or marry someone who is positive. However, if you date or marry someone who is negative, your life will be worse than if you were single. Personally, I believe your happiness shouldn’t be sacrificed to family and societal pressures of getting married and having a family.

Creativity makes your soul happier.


Creativity makes your soul happier.

Creativity makes your soul happier.

I recently watched The Florida Project on Netflix, a movie by Sean Baker about the innocence of kids making the most of their lives despite being poor. I cried. No matter what problems you have, there’s so many other people facing tougher challenges. What an amazing movie, with both playful humor and heart-wrenching drama!


My heart melts for the children going through so many difficulties. Resiliently, many of these kids are still able to find ways to have fun. In my second novel, I wrote about the adversities the children in Iraq faced after the invasion by the U.S. I’m still pitching this story to the literary industry.

I feel for all of you going through tough times. I believe some of your greatest work can come from your emotional pain. If you have something creative you enjoy working on, whether it be drawing, creative writing, craftsmanship, fixing-up vehicles, acting, singing, filmmaking, music production, interior decorating, making crafts, cooking, developing games, photography, software programming, sculpturing, pottery, or anything that sparks joy in your soul, keep doing it when you have time. In fact, make time for it. Creativity makes your soul happier. I love you guys!

With Warmest Aloha,

Embrace your weirdness. It makes you unique. Heck, it could make you a superstar!


Embrace your weirdness. It makes you unique. Heck, it could make you a superstar!

Embrace your weirdness. It makes you unique. Heck, it could make you a superstar!

Embrace your weirdness. It makes you unique. Heck, it could make you a superstar!

You may think something that you’re passionate about is weird; however, that passion may be greatly valued by people. For example, you enjoy collecting Lego since you were a child, and you continue to do so well into your adult years. So you create copyright, videos, and audio about all the things you can build with Lego and provide great tips. People who love Lego from all over the world enjoy your content. Over time, you become a guru of Lego, and people are willing to buy products and services related to Lego from or through you.

Maybe you have a weird imagination. You come up with strange stories never been told before. You showcase short stories and samples of your full-length stories in your blog. After awhile, you develop a following who enjoys your weird style of writing who would love to purchase the debut novel you’re working on.

Take a look at your weirdness. Is there something you can do with it to provide value for others?

Pictured is a beautiful model wearing our Positive Masters 2nd Logo Dark Unisex Hoodie in black to motivate you to be the best you can be and embrace your weirdness! This hoodie and other products can be purchased by visiting our website at www.positivemasters.com 😃🛍️

To live in the present, you must move with time. The magic happens when you consistently move with time.


To live in the present, you must move with time. The magic happens when you consistently move with time.

To live in the present, you must move with time. The magic happens when you consistently move with time.

I came up with the following quote early in the morning of April 2, 2020 when I thought about how important it is for your conscience to be moving in step with time and to not be stuck in your depressed past or ahead in your anxious future:

To live in the present, you must move with time.
The past does not move. Neither does the future.
Whatever you experienced in the past, stays there.
As for the future, it remains still, waiting for you.
The magic happens when you consistently move with time.

Flower Therapy & Color Therapy!


Orange Kalanchoe flowers for flower therapy and color therapy!

Orange Kalanchoe flowers for flower therapy and color therapy!

On Sunday, February 23, 2020, I won these orange Kalanchoe flowers from playing bingo at an event hosted by the Jodo Shu Hawaii Fujinkai, a women’s organization within Jodo Shu Hawaii. It’s a beautiful succulent plant for your home or garden.

When you care for other living things such as flowers, you get a good feeling and a sense of accomplishment. A dopamine rush lifts your spirit.

Orange can be an uplifting color with its attention-grabbing brightness, which is perhaps why it is often used in marketing. Orange can make you feel happy and energized!

What are your favorite flowers? What are you favorite colors? Use flower therapy and color therapy to alleviate your stress, worries, depression and/or anger.

The highest calling for a human is to live a virtuous life.


The highest calling for a human is to live a virtuous life.

The highest calling for a human is to live a virtuous life.

The highest calling for a human is to live a virtuous life. One can reach this way of life through mindset practices, psychology, philosophy, and/or religion. There is no single right way to reach a virtuous life. All that matters is that one is able to reach it.

To be virtuous or morally excellent, one is compassionate, empathic, patient, and loving, among many other great qualities. Virtuous people handle adversity in a calm and collected way because of their heightened awareness of their every thought and every action. We can attain this by holding ourselves accountable, not because of fear of any repercussion, but because it is the right way to live. By working on ourselves daily, we can maintain our mind with right thoughts that leads our body to do right actions since we are constantly aware that everything we do will affect ourselves, others, and our environment.

On the other hand, for many of us, it can be overbearing to exert a lot of effort every single day on numerous mindset practices, deep analysis of the cognition and behavior of ourselves and others, or critical thought. It is so much easier for some of us to be told what is right and wrong through our fear of the wrath of a god or gods, the fear that good and bad things will happen to us depending on how we behave, or the fear on whether or not Santa will bring us gifts based on our past behavior. You see, religion can play a huge role on directing the masses to live virtuous lives just as well as practitioners of positive mindset, psychology, and philosophy. Social science and physical science are increasingly answering more and more questions and replacing religions; however, religion can still work together with science to help more people live virtuous lives. After all, the end goal is the same – for all of us to be happier, kinder, and better humans.

Smile and the world smiles back!


Smile and the world smiles back! Smiling is contagious and healthy!

Smile and the world smiles back! Smiling is contagious and healthy!

Smile and the world smiles back! 😃

You’ve had a string of bad events. Your outlook darkens and you tell yourself, “nothing is going right.” Then you connect with that friend or even stranger who flashes that bright smile at you, often followed by a warm greeting. You smile back and absorb their friendliness. It’s not all doom and gloom. You feel a bit better as you see some light again.😁

The act of smiling can transform you and the world around you. Research shows us that a smile is contagious and healthy. By smiling, we appear more attractive to others. It lifts our mood, as well as the moods of those around us. Even better, the act of smiling can even lengthen our lives. 😉

When you flash a smile, your feel-good neurotransmitters dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin are all released. This relaxes your body and lowers your heart rate and blood pressure. ❤
