Rise of the Positive Masters!


Hi Everyone!

Here’s my new brand, Positive Masters, an apparel line for men and women with unisex t-shirts, men’s t-shirts, women’s fit t-shirts, women’s crop top tees, mugs, and much more to come! We will also have positive life practices, creative writing, books, art, and other goods to help lift your spirit! Our happy products are available at our e-commerce store at www.positivemasters.com.

Each design has a meaning. For instance, our primary logo here highlights our mascot: Master 7, a master of positive mindset. How we view ourselves and surrounding is key to our happiness. A Positive Master always sees the good in herself/himself, others, and situations. Take a moment to reflect on all the positive people who have influenced you and how they made you feel. This interaction of positive energy creates momentum for all of us to attain inner peace and joy.

As you can feel in my words, Positive Masters is a deep passion of mine. I myself have gone through struggles in my personal life and career. If a writing, graphic design, service, or product can help you be happier in your precious life, I would be extremely touched.

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

From the Middle, Suffering Expands Our Gratitude Practice!


From the middle, suffering expands our gratitude practice by making us more present and aware of the light in a mass of darkness, which is all the good things we have in our lives. Here are my 10 examples of how suffering can expand our gratitude practice:

1. When a loved one dies, we’re grateful for the time we had with that person.
2. When our romantic relationship falls apart, we’re grateful to have had the opportunity to experience romance.
3. When we fail at a goal, we’re grateful for the lessons we learned from the failure.
4. When we face financial hardship, we’re grateful for every little thing we have that helps us get by.
5. When we provide value for others and get attacked by opposition or critics, we’re grateful for our ability to create value for others and evolve.
6. When facts in litigation aren’t believed where we face fines, jail, or unfavorable rulings for business, divorce or our personal life, we’re grateful that we had the opportunity to tell what happened.
7. When we can no longer drive a vehicle, we’re grateful for public transportation.
8. When our health declines, we’re grateful for still being alive and having what abilities we still have.
9. When we are wronged by people, we’re grateful for all the positive people in our lives.
10. When our life appears to be in turmoil, we’re grateful that we were born to even have a shot at life.

3 of my daily practices are shown here: the middle way, gratitude, and listening to music (Im wearing Bose Soundsport)!

You Paint My Blues Pink


You paint my blues pink.

And shelter me from my pain.

Art from your kind heart.

Happy people don’t worry or get angry about trivial things.


Happy people don’t worry or get angry about trivial things. Unless you or your loved one is about to die, what you’re mad or anxious about isn’t so bad. Be like water and adjust.

Stay on the Offense


We can stay on the offense by working on things we can control. Reacting and panicking to things we can’t control will put us on the defense, destroying our mood, which in turn, kills our productivity.
