    In today's toxic climate, negative propaganda spreads so much faster and farther than positive stories of truth or honor. We can't move forward if we mindlessly consume programs that divide us. Don't engage with divisive people or ideas. That toxic energy will drag you down. It's time we move toward unity.

      It’s in fact extremely tricky subject... Modern positivity has been commonly been misconstrued with pure pragmatism Forwards, ignore the negatives...focus on the good The show must go on regardless...pragmatism For Material success this perfectly positive and pragmatic But spiritually, we forget to refrain from the unnecessary... And this does require wisdom in critique. As there are systems/mechanisms that need ‘positive’ support... As there are also constructs that desperately need critique. Society/civilisation when seen as a whole We realise that relentless pragmatism in a such a high energy construct really is ruthlessness One person’s success in fame for example is the failure of countless others who simply aspired to have the same material value. Where really for well being we do not even need to participate in the societal material pursuits. Turning away and finding balance and harmony with self are only available for the winners or the ones that turn away to realise there was never any need to succeed. Simply participating in these constructs is the reason why we have so much failure and misery. Highly energetic and polarised systems such as society are bound to natural mechanisms still. Eg Fame creates idolisation and judgement towards self and fateful personnel, like romance. Yet we thirst after it as a mode of success, without realising how rare and unrealistic it really is. Idolisation removes a person’s ability to find self, only few overcome this dilemma. Many bf and Gf, husband and wife’s in shell of lives look to idols for standards giving less devotion to personal practice. Society is not messed up because people are winning, it is because people are winning to societal criteria. I try to explain these systems but this is spurt of the moment reply. Nice video still tho

    Why do I get the feeling that Kevin Hart is like the biggest con artist ever, and it's almost like he comes up with random bullshit on the spot to sound profound and positive, but really there isn't much substance to what he's saying. Idk. I don't like it.

    It's not because it's "cool", our negative default is a survival instinct that is still with us. The world changed so much in the last 120 years, we didn't have time to evolve for it! We'll get there. Defaulting to the positive is actually a challenge for the human brain so people want to take the "easy" way out and talk about negatives or worries!

    Severe oversimplifications from Kevin Hart and I don't mean that in any sense to be negative but it really is a little toxic to claim that anyone who has known true happiness should be happy for the rest of his life for that fact and if he's not he's at fault, I sense a covert lack of compassion

    What a great and encouraging message. So glad I came across this video. We’ve got to focus on the things and the people who add to our success, not the naysayers. Also, perfection doesn’t exist. We are living in a day when perfection is what is expected. Only the perfect people get the high status. I’ve got news for you. They aren’t perfect. And when you realize that, you can truly learn to be happy with yourself.

    If someone is saying or doing something negative towards you they *want* you to get angry and upset. For whatever reason, that's what they really, really want. So if you then get angry you will be giving them exactly what they want. The natural instinct, is to get angry at someone who is trying to offend or insult you. The natural feeling is to get angry and say or do aggressive things to get them to stop offending you and to scare them so they never bother you again. This almost always backfires. Instead what happens is that when you get angry it usually doesn't scare them away. They usually just think it's funny, and you're angry reactions really amuse them and make them want to bother you even more. The best option is to do like Kevin Hart did when that woman insulted him.

    The goal of giving them rewards for their lives fails to make them smart enough to enjoy their purchases. Which is why he was crushed and broke his back in a few places and was squished like a bug. Lol candyland college educated were you can choose music okay I want a master's in music but if you can't sing an perform then they will enjoy crushing your life's career pick because you were stupid enough to go out and dedicate yourself to be crushed just like him and his car. No matter how you see it its good to know negative things an be uncomfortable and out of happy because its a bad thing to deny that you are important and they can also be right in all these negative ways and the horrific things that they say.

  76. BLUEDRAGON7777

    What matters to you is taught to you and either you except the answer and try to get what they told you you should want or to decide for yourself which is also part of what they try to teach you. An what you pick doesn't always work out usual because you decided to try and listen to all these people and then decide instead of deciding and then following their guidelines on achieving it. Which busted his bubble. success being bonus is in the eye of the beholder. You passed on one lifestyle for another. Were successfulness is twisted by social order. Some people now matter what you say or choose will be negative for their own purposes and use their bubble to see themselves as the happy people and paint their counterparts as trolls. Lol and it makes sense that he would use a so called champion like Michael Jordan the slavery promoter and degenerate gambler. An be like well you have cups instead of trophies around you or plaques of your achievements. An he still stuck in his moral defense of what reality is. An rejection of it.

Let's ask Big Jay Oakerson, who started doing open mics with Kevin, if hes got any stories of Kevin's positivity and never kicking anyone when their down, when they ran into each other after 20 years. Actually don't. This would have been a very positive little holier-than-thou speech, if I didn't know he was talking out his Kentucky fried asshole. I don't know if he's using his acting class knowledge in the best way. Maybe I'm just jealous. It must come in handy to believe your own lies.
