We can help others by using positive empathy. When we celebrate and feel joy for and with someone because they feel that way, we grow the feeling in them as well. These positive emotions will grow deep roots. Share positive experiences with others to create even stronger relationships.

Empathy for yourself is about awareness. Actually, all empathy is about awareness. Master self-understanding and you can master the world, your world.
We only care about failure when the results will cause us to be judged or will hurt others. If we feel empowered, supported, and confident, then those feelings will be reduced. The strength to be imperfect is the power to take risks.
Belonging is vital to feeling courage. Belonging eliminates superior and inferior feelings, thus creating an environment that promotes feeling part of a community. The more we feel important, valuable, and part of a community the more confidence we will have. Confidence is a byproduct of feeling courage.
The more confident and fulfilled you become, the more respect you create (from yourself and others). This translates into a larger circle of influence.
Courage: The strength, choice, and ability to accomplish your purpose in the face of fear, pain, or grief.

Every decision is made based on emotion and justified by logic. That is why behavior change cannot be a logical choice, it needs to be emotionally driven. Start with what is powerful, with what works and the logic will find its way to support you. Be emotional on purpose.
