21DPC Day 1 – On a Scale of 1-10, How Happy Are You? And Why?

This is Day 1 of the 21-Day Positivity Challenge (21DPC) for Mar 2012. View all posts made during the challenge: 21DPC Overview.

21-Day Positivity Challenge for March 2012!

Hello everyone, and welcome to Day 1 of 21-Day Positivity Challenge (21DPC)!! :D :dance:

We have over *300* official participants with us now!! Are we in for a month of positivity or WHAT??? :D

To all of you who have duly signed up and helped spread the word to your social networks (or even via blogging about it, for those of you bloggers out there!), thank you. The challenge can only be a success through our collective efforts. The more people sign on to 21DPC, the better it will be for everyone, because hey – that means even more positive energy to go around. :D There is never a limit to how much positive energy there can be – abundance has no lmits.

For those of you whose friends / family read your message and decided to join in on 21DPC too, that’s fabulous. PE Challenges are always particularly fun when you get to do it with someone you know! You can keep each other accountable and learn more about each other in the process.

If you are doing it by yourself, not to fret. We have over 300 official participants here with us for 21DPC, and we’re definitely going to get more people joining us over the next few days before I close the sign ups. In the course of these 21 days, all of us will be doing 21DPC together as one, reflecting on the daily questions, sharing our answers in the comments section of the daily posts, and engaging each other in meaningful discussions.

This is a challenge to be done together as a community, as a group, as one Personal Excellence family, which is really the reason why PE is even here. So do not be afraid to share your answers openly and be fully honest with yourself here. There is no judgment here; anyone who tries to do that will be promptly barred from the site. The .co in the PE domain represents community, not individuality- always remember that whenever you come here to the site.

Important: Sign Up First Before Reading Any Further

If you’re new to 21-Day Positivity Challenge, or you have not signed up yet (your name should be in the official participants list), please read the announcement post and sign up first before going any further: 21-Day Positivity Challenge. All details on the challenge, what to expect, and how to sign up can be found at the post.

If you have already duly completed the 3 sign up steps, your name will be added in the next 36 hours. ♥ Thank you!

Update March 5: Sign ups are now closed now – thanks everyone for your amazing response! For those who didn’t get to sign up - you are more than welcome to participate and join us in the daily threads!

What To Expect for the Next 21 Days

1. Positivity Question

Changing Your Life, Starting From Your Thoughts

As you have read in the announcement post, I will be assigning you a positivity question every day, for the next 21 days.

The question may be simple, like asking “What is your favorite movie?” to something deeper, like “What is 1 positive thing you can share about your least favorite person?” There are days when there will be 2-3 questions combined into 1 (for example, today’s question) – you are expected to answer all the questions, and not just answer the first one and skip the rest.

The idea is to cultivate positivity in your life, via working on the root of it all – our thoughts. Asking ourselves the right questions will help us think in the right manner. And from there, the right actions, habits, and behavior will follow suit. As the saying goes:

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.” – Anonymous

Your Honesty Required

My request to you is to be as completely honest with yourself in answering the questions. Because the more honest you are, the more insights you will unveil, the more you will grow. Think of it as it you’re in a dark room alone, by yourself, and there’s no one there to listen, comment, or judge. What is the first thing that comes to mind? What would be your most truthful response to the question?

This challenge is not about sugar-coated answers and creating an illusion of happiness and positivity to everyone out there. You are probably kidding yourself if you think we’ll be jumping around in these 21 days, skipping merrily, laughing like little kids and forcing ourselves to smile every day.

Don’t feel that there’s a need for you to write something positive just because this is a positivity challenge, because that’s totally untrue. As I shared in Principle #1 of How To Be Happy, part of being happy / positive includes airing out grievances, unhappiness, frustrations, anger, sadness, disappointment, etc inside of you – whatever they may be. These (negative) energies, when unaired, are merely *stuck* in your consciousness, with nowhere else to go.

In the end, they end up affecting you on a subconscious level, in more ways than you can imagine. The more (unhappiness) you release  through your answers in 21DPC (in a constructive manner, of course), the more happiness can flow your way.

2. Positivity Task

Most of the days will have a positivity task assigned. This task is linked to the day’s question, and usually comprises of a simple action that can be done on the day itself. Do complete the task as part of your 21DPC participation.

3. Positive Thing For the Day

Last but not least, you are to identify at least 1 positive thing that you got out of the day, for every day of 21DPC. If you can identify more than 1, that’s even better! The more the better! :D

Sharing To Help Yourself and Help Others

As with every challenge, I highly recommend you share your responses in the comments section of the daily posts with the other participants, to get the most out of your 21DPC experience.

If you’re not comfortable sharing your answers under your usual name/nick on PE, then create some fake, random nick (so no one will know it’s you) and post your answers under that nick (for the remainder of 21DPC, if you want). Replace others’ names (if any) in your answers with fake nicks as well. There is always something powerful about transparently writing your thoughts out there in the open, vs. keeping it to yourself in your little book.

Besides, do not underestimate the change you can make in others’ lives just by sharing your answers here. After all, have you not benefited in the past from reading honest sharings by others, be it on Personal Excellence, or on other websites? What would the world be if no one wants to share? Think about the people out there you can effect. By helping others, you are also helping yourself.

21DPC Day 1 Question

Given that this is a positivity challenge, for Day 1 today, I want you to think about how happy you are. Not just today, but as a person.

On a Scale of 1-10, How Happy Are You? And Why?

On a Scale of 1-10, How Happy Are You?

Share as much as you want in your answers, from a few words to a few pages long. Be honest as you can. Answer both questions, and not just the first question.

And if you did not give yourself a 10/10 for your score, I have one additional question for you:

Why Did You Not Give Yourself a 10/10?

Again, be completely honest in your response. There is no judgment here at PE. Only positivity and love.

While we’re on the topic of happiness, be sure to check out the related articles on how to achieve happiness (or unhappiness, as per the second article) at PE:

  1. How To Be Happy: 10 Timeless Principles for Lasting Happiness
  2. Are You as Happy as You Can Be? 10 Surefire Ways To Be Unhappy in Life

…and the manifesto versions:

  1. [Manifesto] 10 Timeless Principles For Lasting Happiness
  2. [Manifesto] 10 Surefire Ways To Achieve Unhappiness

Your Tasks Today

  1. Reflect and answer today’s question(s). Write as few or as many words as needed to fully express your thoughts. There is no word limit.
  2. Identify at least one positive thing about your day. It may be something small or something big – as long as you deem it as something positive, it counts. If you have more than 1 thing to share, then by all means, go for it!

Share Your Answers!

After you are done, share your answers in the comments area!

If you’re doing this at the start of the day, you can post your answer for today’s question first, then return at the end of the day to answer the 2nd part, on identifying at least one positive thing about your day.

Check out other participants’ answers. Pick 1-2 participants’ answers and make a meaningful reply to them. Engage in the discussions. This is a group course, so let’s support each other in these 21 days!

Look forward to reading your responses!

    Hey everyone, reminder that the daily tasks for 21DPC includes sharing at least one positive thing you observed/gotten/did/learned from the day, on top of answering the daily question (otherwise it’ll just be another 21-Day Journaling Challenge with questions geared toward positivity).

    I would rate my happiness 8/10 because
    :dance: reasons:-
    i have a caring family, friends, good education, opportunity to learn, to grow.

    to reach my full 10/10:-
    But i would love to have more freedom, i want the people around me to be more positive,more encouraging. I dont want them to say my goals are very difficult. i want to work hard and do my best and have a positive image about myself and my future.

      Hi premalatha, I believe that when you can create some good results to show that you are moving towards your goal, they will see your future as a positive one. I did the same too. :)

      One thing I’ve experience in life is that sadly, you can’t really change other people. You can only change yourself. However, changing yourself and becoming more positive and friendly often makes other people change their behaviour towards you.

      I went through a phase where I was really upset because I’d broken up with a good friend and had a couple of other problems and felt I was alone in the world. More and more friends moved away from me, probably because I was too negative to be around. In the end I decided this couldn’t go on and I just decided to be happy and joke around and laugh out loud despite all the crap, because underneath it all, life was pretty good.

      And my life completely changed around. Instead of worrying about the bad stuff I started thinking about all the good stuff and suddenly life felt a lot better. The biggest change was other people’s reactions to me. I found new and better friends and got on a lot better with other people too. (Not saying YOU’re being negative, just saying this was one marked example of how drastically your own behaviour can help other people react differently to you, without anything having fundamentally changed except your attitude.)

      I’m so with you on wishing that other people were more supportive though… The people you’re close to maybe you can talk to and tell them you feel they’re not being very supportive. As nicely as possible. Often it’s their own fears and doubts about what THEY can accomplish that they project onto you that make them think you can’t do something.

      I believe you can accomplish anything you set your mind and heart too, as long as you’re willing to show up and do the work and not let doubt settle into your heart.

      “As a man thinketh in his heart, so he will be.”

        I love what you said, and am a firm believer in all of it! I strive everyday to be positive, see the good and just the bad and negative things roll off my back! I find it is way easier to be happy go lucky all of the time then being negative, which takes a huge toll on you and everyone around you!

        Best of Luck!

    My happiness is about a 5/10. And that is why I decided to do this challenge. I have been going through a pretty severe depression for the past 8 months and am trying very very hard to get myself out of it. I have other thought exercises that I am doing but I like the idea of going through this with people! At this point, even if I bring my general happiness up to a 6/10 – that would be a huge improvement.

      Wishing you all the best :)

      I’ve kept a happiness journal before when I was really down, where I made myself write down at LEAST 3 good things that had happened to me that day. Interestingly enough that really helped because I started focusing on the little good things in my life thinking “I have to remember to write this down” instead of the bad stuff. :)

      Not saying this might be your problem, I have absolutely no clue what your situation is, but

      Is there anything fundamentally not okay with your life that maybe you should be changing, but maybe you aren’t aware of or won’t aknowledge ist wrong?

      I spent 2 1/2 years in a deeply unhappy and unhealthy relationship trying very hard to convince myself I was happy. I lied to myself, completely undermining my belief and trust in myself. I caused a host of additional problems by trying to solve problems that weren’t there and making them responsible for my unhappiness instead of acknowledging the actual problem. I caused myself a mean little eating disorder there that I’ve only just gotten myself out of, even though the relationship ended more than a year ago…

      I nearly wrecked myself completely until I finally admitted to myself what was wrong.

        That happiness journal is a very good idea.I consider on starting a belief and happiness journal ,along with writing 3 good things,its good to add three positive beliefs about ourselves…..really positive.

          The three positive beliefs about yourself a day is a great idea, mind if I add that to my private journal? :) I’ve done a page “Things I like about myself”, but your idea would make it a more re-occuring event which would be great…

          Wishing you luck with your journal.

            Hi all,

            I had a similar goal to achieve, to write 100 points starting with “I love myself becouse…” but getting stuck at the 45 made me feel really down, I could push to 50 some of them being telling the same things in different words but I am not sure if I can complete it to 100.. If one can not find reason to love himself/herself how should others love her/him.. If deal is seeing the positive part of this maybe I am good at summarising a big amount of data.. ;)

            have a good day everyone

      Hi Leslie well i hope that you are able to increase your happiness by one point that would be good – i too went through some depression last year although did not know what it was for a while – very despondent and could not get out of bed unless i had to go to work – what has helped me is taking one day at a time, trying to live in the moment, got some counselling – and maybe medication could help also .

      Aim to think of a positive thing each day and get some real good self talk for yourself and you will be much happier im sure

    On a scale from 1 to 10 I would say 7: I’m healthy, I have caring parents, all necessary things for a comfy life (food, shelter, clothes, etc.), a few friends but true ones.

    I didn’t choose 10/10 because I have to work at many aspects of my life, from rather serious things ( I care too much what others think or say about me thus being easily affected by the slightest remark -which is stupid, I know; sometimes I’m afraid of the future instead of embracing it and creating it as I go along) or more simple/materialistic ones ( I wish I had my own room- I’ve been living with my parents in the same room ever since I was born; pretty&feminine clothing, enough money to travel or go and study abroad). While some of these things are in my power to change or make them happen, others simply can’t be changed or removed from my everyday life because I can’t control *everything* that is around me. Guess this is one thing I have to learn and understand.

      I’m with you on the fear of the future side. That’s probably what freaks me out most in life, the uncertainty.

      Is there maybe some small corner of the room you could claim for yourself, by decorating it nicely? A little bit can really help in that respect, I used to share a room with my sister… Maybe put up some nice posters/quotes/art that makes you feel “This is me”. Put out a nice bowl with a candle in it, decorate with your favourite colours… anything that suits your personality.

        Thank you for the suggestion, Ffion! :D While I do have a corner of my own it all comes down to a small shelf with my books (both books I bought and the ones I’ve received as gifts over time) but I think I could create a small space of my own via decorating. :)

          I can’t entirely relate to your situation as I DO have my own room. But the other day was the first time I actively decorated my room and added things to it that I wanted there because I felt they were “me” and I was astounded at how much more at home that made me feel. :)

          Before then it felt like my room just kind of happened by accident… I spent lots of time there but didn’t really feel like it was “my space”.

    I would give myself a 7/10 in terms of happiness because there are still some things I tend to do that do not contribute to my overall happiness. I am a very positive person – I try to be optimistic, see things from others’ point of view if there is a disagreement, and try not to think negatively of others. Overall, I consider myself to be kind, caring, and patient.

    The reason I do not give myself a perfect score is because I still have a lot to work on in terms of finding the courage to do the things I love. I tend to be afraid of “what ifs”, especially in terms of business. I also have an extremely hard time saying no to anybody, even if I end up miserable because of what they want (I am working on this one). I am also very much affected by the opinions of others, especially if it is something negative, to the point where I will lose sleep if I feel someone might be angry or upset with me.

      I really relate to the first part of your comment: I try, too, to be positive and optimist, but sometimes it just seems like my heart refuses to follow with the thinking my brain does.

    I would probably be 9/10. Life is good, and to be honest, there’s not really much I can think of in my life not to be happy about. Like everyone else, I have worries and concerns. But I’m still happy regardless! Even if I was really poor, I’d still be happy. Our time on this earth will only last for so long. It’s best to make the most of it :)

    The reason I didn’t choose 10/10 is because there’s always room for improvement, and there are days things just don’t go to plan, leaving me feeling not so happy. But they’re rare.

      I really hope this positivity challenge helps you life your spirits! I also sometimes feel depressed when I look at what others have achieved, but I realise that we should not compare ourselves to others, because we have to live our own life, and find what is important and rewarding for us. It might be different for me, and it might be different for you, but we all have something, I am sure.

      And of course being able to spend time with our loved ones, like parents and children, is a blessing that we should always count, it is priceless! I can imagine how you and your son enjoyed this little cricket game and wish you a lot of those little pleasant moments!

    6/10. I’m naturally a happy person, in that I take such joy out of the little things, love to laugh as often as possible, and truly see the value of rising above the negativity that can come with daily life. However, I do have factors that are sucking on my life source, and I’m hoping to either change such situations, or change how I approach, experience them.

    Very early this morning (after midnight) I got home and my mother had left a full plate of dinner on the stove for me. So nice.

    I’d give myself 5/10. I have had a very tough emotional battle going on over that last 6 months which had been brewing for the previous 18 months. However, I have been having some help and do generally feel better than I did. I still have some days when I feel fragile and low, but, thankfully, they are rarer these days. I am feeling positive about the future; I am searching for something, but feel I am coming closer to finding it. My life is good, I have good health, and a husband and family who love me.
    A positive thing today is that I feel better than I have done for the last couple of days…and the sun is shining too!

      The sun never fails to cheer me up, too!

      I really hope that you find what you are searching for, it is similar for me now – I feel it is very close, and I will soon get a realisation, and even though there are no visual changes in my life yet, I am excited about things to come, whatever they are.

      I know emotional troubles can be really depleting, and I wish you to feel better and have more energy! I am sure you’ll get a boost from 21DPC!

        I hope that it benefits you and everyone else who is looking for a positive change in their life.

    Hmm, i think it would give myself 7/10

    I usually don’t like to complain and can find enjoyment in whatever I do. I have good job, have good friends, financial and health are great :D.
    The lacking 3 points are
    1. I’m not doing what I’m very passionate about. I like it, very much, but not s.thing i get up felt excited about, or can so proudly tell people about what I do with spark in my eyes :D
    2. I’m oversea and staying away from all my good friends & family, working alone. So as muhc as I tried to get new friends, I still do miss them a lot
    3. I don’t have boy friend, broke up last year, and as much as i enjoy my single life, its still good to have s.one for me. And social pressure does have some impact.

    alright, this is at the end of my day, so today, 1 positive thing is that I took Thai Boxing Class. It is super, tiring, but just so cool to learn new thing. Every punch counts :D. So yay ^^, very happy about it

      Great to hear you enjoyed your Thai Boxing Class Huong. :D I just finished my Kickboxing class and it feels really awesome too. Like you said, every punch (and kick for me) counts!

      (By the way, a matter of semantics – but Day 1 is supposed to start on March 1st, given it’s a March challenge. I suppose those of you doing Day 1 on Feb 29 can either continue to do the tasks 1 day ahead, or time yourself to do the tasks on the day itself.)

      Huong I can relate. I live abroad and I don’t work in what I deeply love.

      Happiness can be found in different aspects of our life but sometime some things / situations are more difficult to deal with.

      Surely this challenge will be a great help for us all. Enjoy your evening too.

    I would rate my current happiness at about 5/10. I’ve been having a very stressful last few weeks and have gotten very discouraged about money and the future.

    As for positive things today, it’s morning so not a lot’s happened yet, but the birds are singing spring songs!

      I love listening to birdsong. It was a lovely, sunny, warm day here today, too – it made me feel like spring had arrived and made me so happy :)
