"The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do." – Kobe Bryant
A person can be a source of positive vibes for other people. Giving off positivity is better than emitting negativity. However, one cannot give what one doesn’t have.

One of the greatest things a person can do for other people is to inspire them to reach their full potential. Giving off positive vibes is a great way to bring out the best in them. 

Most people don't want to be told what to do. They just watch what other people do and imitate them. Emitting positive vibes lets you teach other people through the things that you do and by being who you are. This means that positivity will start with you first.

It can be compared to a glass full of water. You are the glass and the water is positivity. When your life is full of it, a time comes that it will overflow and surge out to the brim.
Here are the signs that you are starting to regularly give off positive energy:

1. You are always kind

Your patience is evident and you don’t think ill of others. You do something good for another person without expecting anything in return. You speak softly and gently most of the time, and only raise your voice with authority whenever you want to assert yourself.

2. You are always compassionate
You easily empathize with people and understand their feelings. You don’t put that much weight on money anymore and care more about people. You are willing to gently teach others how to improve themselves. You have a higher sense of ethics, goodness, honesty, and decency than most people.

3. You are always grateful

Whining and complaining now seems so strange to you. You are able to see the good even in the direst of circumstances. You see favors as a privilege and not as an entitlement. You are not afraid to speak compliments. Positive people discern when others are also giving off positive vibes and they always recognize it and are thankful for it.

Key Idea: Be a source of inspiration. Others need it more than you think.
