Anything Goes : Keep It Positive! by Andrew Mondia

Keep It Positive!

I love this site however when I come across people attacking another person here I do find that is not helpful and also diminishes the topic being discussed at hand. Interesting how people perceive someone on here but be careful what you put out. Each person you come across here is a mirror reflection to your own personality. So when you attack someone else you are really attacking yourself as well. Ask yourself if that is helpful? People come from varying degrees in our industry here from beginners to pros. It's better to move on/be silent and not deal with person if negativity is what you feel. But do look at why that is if that is the case. I would rather focus on what a friend of mine calls the 7 Graces.. (of marketing) which is true in life to. 1. CONNECTION – to aspire to unity with Self, people and planet 2. INSPIRATION – to give value, express generosity and share wisdom freely 3. INVITATION – to practice openness, engagement, hospitality and respect 4. DIRECTNESS – to embrace simplicity and straightforwardness in our communication 5. TRANSPARENCY – to express who we really are and what we value most in both personal and professional life 6. ABUNDANCE – to aim towards sustainable wealth through ecological and economic balance 7. COLLABORATION – to continually seek ways to create truly innovative projects together

Positivity is great but it shouldn't come at the expense of the truth!

Truth always wins out and you can still keep positive about it. My reference in posting this is result of something from another post really. There does need to be some ying yang balance. It's how we grow as artists.

I think this needed to be said. I have a bad habit of responding to negativity with more negativity, but I do think more people could keep it positive. It takes ego to have the gall to try and get involved in such a prestigious business, but that's no reason not to reign it in and try to be constructive and inspiring.
