Richard Branson’s 10 Favourite Quotes on Positivity

quoth heYou know that when one of the most optimistic people in the world references other people’s optimistic quotes, then they’re gonna be good.  And they are.

But before you click on the link, here’s a few from Sir Optimism himself:

“My general attitude to life is to enjoy every minute of every day. I never do anything with a feeling of, ‘Oh God, I’ve got to do this today.”
~ Richard Branson

“Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.”
~ Richard Branson

“Personally, I see any glass half full as an opportunity to top it up, start a conversation and perhaps spark a great new idea.”
~ Richard Branson

“Through the right people focusing on the right things, we can, in time, get on top of a lot, if not most of, the problems of this world. And that’s what a number of us are trying to do.”
~Richard Branson


And now…da da-da da!…the quotes that inspire Sir Richard Branson himself. (Which have in turn, inspired me, and I’m willing to bet will inspire you too.)

Oh, and btw, at the bottom of his post, don’t miss his top 10 quotes on other aspects of life too.

Richard Branson quotes from BrainyQuote

My New Boyfriends – yup, that’s plural…

4854024021_246f0153ecI LOVE these guys. Each of them. What can I say?

Each of them (there are three, sometimes four) are

…and they could be my sons.

What I love most about each is their ambition to shine a light on social problems and their ability to do it with compassion. 

But they don’t just go and interview folks to get a broad picture of their situation.

They put themselves in the shoes (or lack thereof) of their subjects.

They LIVE alongside them in order to fully understand their lives. 

And they film their journey so we too can understand.

Oh, and they are some of the best documentary filmmakers on the planet today. (In my opinion.) But I’m not alone. They have, and are, winning major awards for their work. 

But do they stop there? No.

They ask, “What Can I Do?” …then do it.

If you haven’t seen it yet, I urge you to watch their first film Living On One Dollar. Here’s the trailer:

Find out what you can do to help them help others. Visit their website.

Find out about their latest film, Salam Neighbor, on their website, or here

(Btw, I am not affiliated in any way with my “boyfriends”. In fact, it’s unlikely they know I exist. (Sniff) But I felt compelled to share their message with you, ’cause if you’re reading this, you’re likely like me and wanted to know about it. ~ You’re welcome!)

Warning: after you watch their film, you’ll want them as boyfriends too. 
Psssttt, you can watch it on Netflix or iTunes – just sayin’

Have you seen this film? What did you think?

Thanks to Taki Steve for the heart pic!

You HAVE To See This….

2015_0604_Zach-and-Chris_Social_VictoryZach, Chris and Sean, three average American twenty-somethings, wondered what life is really like for Syrian refugees.

So they embedded themselves in their refugee camp for a month, living alongside the Syrian families displaced from their homes.

They are the first non-Syrians allowed to live in the camp.

This film depicts their experience.

I invite you to watch their trailer and consider your life should this happen to you.

Is it time to re-think your views of your neighbours – those half way around the world…and those in your own hometown?

Today is World Refugee Day.
Spread their message far and wide.
