You’ve seen enough death to know that your time could be up at anytime. So work hard on how you want to be remembered as, now!

You’ve seen enough death to know that your time could be up at anytime. So work hard on how you want to be remembered as, now!

Accepting your vulnerability that you could die at any time is not something you may want to think about. However, there’s a way you can make it positive. You could look at your future demise as the celebration of your life:

(1) The people you’ve touched with your love and kind gestures;

(2) The positive impact you’ve made on others through your work on a service or product; and

(3) Beneficial content you’ve created for your loved ones and the greater community.

I’ve written down in my life plan, annual plans, and daily plans, the things I want to do for others and the community before I die. I schedule it in my calendar so I can execute most of them before my time is up.

For your fun homework, write down all the things you want to do that will be your legacy for your loved ones and the community. Write down even the craziest things you want to do that would be super impactful, practical, educational, or fun! Next, write them into your life plan, annual plans, and daily plans. Most importantly, schedule them into your calendar and execute on them!

Love you! Sending positive energy to you!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

Be a student of mental health.


Be a student of mental health. Study your thoughts & emotions. Assess why you think and feel a certain way. Train yourself to be ready for difficult situations with people & events, whether it be death, failure, disagreement, judgment, impatience, etc. These difficulties will come at us sooner or later. The more we exercise our mind on how to best handle life's lemons, the better we become in reinforcing our positive thoughts by our positive actions.โ

As students of math, we practice numbers, & we still do so in our daily lives in order to make sure we pay our bills & get our returns on investments. As students of English, we are always reading, writing, & speaking, constantly changing & improving our art in communication.โ  ๐Ÿ“–โ

For mental health, we tell our little children to explain what’s bothering them instead of yelling & giving a tantrum. Hello? We adults still give tantrums that are directed at other adults at work & in our personal lives. We need to train our minds to be optimized for its best performance not just when times are good but when times are terrible. Read articles & books about the many practices you can do to maintain a positive mindset. All of us at Positive Masters will also share the practices that work for us. As a community, we can share & help each other to master our inner peace. By doing so, we will better our interactions with others that will spread like wildfire. Together, we can lessen the verbal & physical violence in our world. Yes, world peace is possible.โ  ๐ŸŒŽโ

Smile and the world smiles back!


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

Smile and the world smiles back! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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.๐Ÿ˜

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. โค

Our mindset is everything!


Our mindset is everything. A positive mindset affects us tremendously and everyone we interact with. Here are 3 examples:

1. If we have a positive outlook, our problems are seen as challenges.

2. With a positive mindset, our bad events are interpreted as as our inciting incidents for our hero’s journey.

3. With an #empathic #practice, when people attack us, we look deeper in their souls and realize they are suffering within themselves, so we wish them to awaken to practices that can make them happier.

The list goes on and on.

My daily practices: positive mindset and music! I have my @bose #headphones on and rocking it!

Wishing you the best in your daily practice for a happier life!

With Warmest Aloha, Jon

Missing My Aunty JoAnn Matsumoto


With the passing of my aunty JoAnn Matsumoto on February 1, 2019 due to pneumonia, I’ve fallen deeper into sadness. I feel an emptiness in my soul. Everyday I practice gratitude, mindfulness, meditation, creative writing, and my many other positive practices to keep moving forward. Nothing seems to matter to me except for those I love and my fiction and nonfiction writing for my far-reaching entertainment company. Everything in the stories I create embodies what my aunty JoAnn was: loving, caring, compassionate, emphatic, and positive. All my worse problems are small in comparison to losing my aunty. I would go to prison for my driving under the influence charge and lose more money with start-ups to have her back.

Yesterday, March 7, 2019, I attended the funeral services for my aunty JoAnn. She’s my mom’s cousin. She was like a sister for my mom Laraine and her sisters aunty Jamie and aunty Maydeen and brother Wilson because she stayed with them and their parents when she moved to Oahu for college from Hawaii island and spent so much time with them up to her recent passing.

My friends, cherish every moment with your loved ones. Them being with us makes our problems small. We can always make our comeback but we can’t get our loved ones back in physical form once they’re gone. We can always find ways to make money but that stuff doesn’t impact us the way good people do. I love you all. May peace be with you.
