Popular art is normally decried as vulgar by the cultivated people of its time; then it loses favor with its original audience as a new generation grows up; then it begins to merge into the softer lighting of quaint, and cultivated people become interested in it, and finally it begins to take on the archaic dignity of the primitive.

Positive attitude is meant to give you influence over your circumstances, rather than your circumstances having influence over you. In other words, it takes you and never anyone else to decide whether or not to override your unfavourable circumstances. That also implies, it's solely up to you to feel overwhelmed or not when faced with unfavourable circumstances. So what? do imbibe a positive attitude and never a negative aspect of it. For, surely positive attitude is worth imbibing and portraying and not at all worth rejecting.
– Emeasoba GeorgeRate it:
Positive thinking often helps while coping with stress in life. However there can be occasions when it may not work for you, and you may get overwhelmed with negative thoughts. At that crossroad, you should make a turn, even a U-turn if necessary, and confront your negative thoughts fearlessly. You should now combat those negative thoughts one by one, mercilessly - by using scientific and analytical reasonings, and demanding substantiating evidence from negative thoughts. Once you start defeating those negative thoughts as irrational or unfounded or baseless, you'll find yourself getting close to the realm of positivity. Combating negativity ruthlessly - that's a new tool in your tool box along with your favorite hammer of positive thinking! Cheers!
