In this video, let’s study and work together for two 1-hour Pomodoros (study and work sessions). If you’re stressed with your job and have a mean boss and demanding clients, pivot yourself by working on your passion projects with me on the side during breaks, after work, and on weekends. Make your passion project into your passion business and get out of a work situation that can ruin your health, mentally and physically. Your life is too valuable to be abused by those who are greedy and lack empathy. Let’s crush our passion projects!!!

I spent hours combing through cinematic songs that I purchased the licenses for as I studied and worked. The songs I chose really gave me that right mood. I hope you like them as well. 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,

Stay positive and keep moving forward!


Stay positive and keep moving forward!
Stay positive and keep moving forward!

You have no control over your opposition, critics, and haters, but you have control over yourself to stay positive and keep moving forward!

As a former politician and deputy prosecuting attorney, I’ve experienced my share of negative people. Instead of going down to their level, I’ve made a commitment to behave in a positive way so those witnessing the duality will choose happiness and inner peace over anger and suffering.

Now is the most important time.


Now is the most important time.
Now is the most important time.

Now is the most important time, not the past, not the future, but right now. We think we’ll be happier if something better should happen to us in the future. However, the grass is not always greener when we get there. So, let’s do our best to enjoy and make the most of what’s before us now. If we do this, we’ll have times of joy no matter what happens in our future.

Positive Living Practice #1: Reducing Stress in a Positive Way


As I mentioned in my “Positive Living Practice and Stages Practice” post, I’m creating a Positive Living Practice series that highlights products and services that can help us with our health, wealth, and happiness so that we can live a happy and fulfilling life. By “health,” I mean good physical, mental, and spiritual health. For “wealth,” I define it as time, knowledge, and ideas. And “happiness” is the wonderful joy we get from gratitude, compassion, and love.

Today, I’m discussing a challenge that we all face within our lives – “Stress.” Have you ever received another person’s wrath because of that person’s weakness in not being able to handle his or her stress? Or worse, have you ever directed your anger at another person and blamed your bad behavior because of the stress your were going through?

How often we experience stress is within our control. I personally believe that 99% of all challenges we face are either minor or can be resolved. In regards to the 1% of challenges that we can’t control, we can become stronger by accepting it, learning from it, and moving on.

Studies have shown that stress can cause us emotional and physical problems. Further, if we manage it in the wrong way, we could hurt our relationships and reputation. Instead of handling stress in a destructive way that hurts ourselves and others, we can address it in a positive way that spreads waves of positive energy to others. In this post, I will share with you my strategies to reduce stress. I also include a poster on how to beat stress and boost happiness by Happify, a company that helps you to develop happiness skills through its online activities and articles. You can check out Happify at http://www.happify.com.

If we can reduce stress, we will be healthier physically, mentally, and spiritually; and be stronger in our practice of gratitude, compassion, and love. With good health and happiness, we can make the best use of our time, absorb more knowledge, and come up with more ideas.

The following are some of the things that I like to do to reduce stress:

  1. Exercise: Run indoors or outdoors and lift weights.
  2. Dream of what I want to achieve.
  3. Type my ideas.
  4. Write down and update my goals.
  5. Envision the outcome of my goals.
  6. Listen to music.
  7. Spend time with my family.
  8. Be around positive people.
  9. Have gratitude for all the good things I have in my life.
  10. Meditate.
  11. Self-Reflect.
  12. See the positive in every failure.
  13. Try to get a good sleep and take a nap when I need a boost.
  14. Listen to podcast shows that highlight positive and successful people.
  15. Write fictional stories.
  16. Read novels.
  17. Learn through reading or practice.
  18. Watch a television show or movie that inspires me.
  19. Sensory Therapy – Sight: Vision boards, posters, & light from candles.
  20. Sensory Therapy – Sound: Music and sounds of nature.
  21. Sensory Therapy – Aroma: Scented candles and oil diffusers.
  22. Sensory Therapy – Touch: Shower or bath, swimming in the ocean or a pool, or a massage.
  23. Network.
  24. Enjoy events.
  25. Appreciate the beauty of nature.

Here is a poster from Happify that shows us how to take on stress in a positive way.
