Phil Gerbyshak has posted an article on the power of positivity, which inspired by Benjamin Franklin’s autobiography:
If you wish to instruct others, a positive and dogmatical manner in advancing your sentiments may occasion opposition and prevent a candid attention. If you desire instruction from others, you should not, at the same time, express yourself fixed in your present opinions. Modest and sensible men, who do not love disputation, will leave you undisturbed in the possession of your errors. In adopting such a manner, you can seldom expect to please your hearers, or obtain the concurrence you desire.”
He highlighted that the power of positivity is being able to attract other positive people around you to achieve more than possible.
