Positive Vibrations


“I find that if I have nothing positive to say then it is best to say nothing at all”

Bob Marley is one of those artists that no one really dislikes. You might not be a great fan of reggae or even black music for that matter but chances are that you have still heard the name and quite possibly one or two of his songs.

The Beatles are kind of the same. I personally do not really like them enough to own an album or even one of their tracks but how can you dislike someone who is generally advocating World Peace and fraternity amongst all men.

If you are a believer in Karma then you will know that what you give is what you get returned.

Some companies spend millions of dollars on improving their corporate images and to look like they really care about their customers. Others make it their corporate ethos to “Do no evil” as they seem to have grasped that once public opinion shifts against you it is a slippery slope straight into that proverbial dustbin of history.

Yet as individuals we seem to ignore these lessons that history have taught us. We are so quick to express our negative feelings to our spouses/friends and co-workers that it amazes me. We do it and tell ourselves that we need to vent our feelings or else they get bottled up inside and we will eventually blow a fuse.

I do not believe that one should turn the other cheek. If wrong is done upon you feel free to return the favour right then and there. But do not bite it down and let it simmer to another day. Deal with the situation and move on.

Do not let your mind focus on the negative things that life puts in front of you. If you feel stress or anxiety then exercise or meditate and allow your frustration to float away amongst the clouds.

“I find that if I have nothing positive to say then it is best to say nothing at all”

If I can live by this ethos then I will put more positive thoughts into the world and therefore make it a better place both for myself and those around me.

So in the words of Bob Marley from the song Positive Vibrations

“Say you just can’t live that negative way,
If you know what I mean;
Make way for the positive day,
