Please be assured - I'm not blaiming anyone, but looking through threads at this forum I noticed that many warriors use the word "positive" without giving any thought to it. It's like a generally accepted thing, a norm - one mentions "positive thinking" and everyone choruses "Yes, positive! You should always be positive! Positive thinking is the positive way to positive life!"
But let's wait a bit and think it over: what the word "positive" means for each one. We should build our life consciously, don't we? So let's use the words with full awareness of what we are saying.
Please forgive my scrupulousness, it's due to my specialization - linguistics, but I always try to understand the meaning of words and phrases I use.
If we look in a dictionary we'll notice way too many meanings of "positive". (Positive Definition | Definition of Positive at Dictionary.com) In our context the closest meaning is "emphasizing what is laudable, hopeful, or to the good; constructive". And here's just the time to remember Albert Einstein and his theory of relativity :rolleyes: Everything is relative in our life too.
What is laudable for one may be unworthy for another, hopes are different for every person, not to mention "good", which might be quite opposite in one and the same situation for two parties to a deal, for example.
So let's determine (and use thoughtfully) what "positive" means for you. Yes, for you personally.
