We experience a wide range of feelings as we go about our daily life. It can be quite hard for us to define these emotions and explain exactly how much of an emotion we are feeling. However, it is relatively easy for us to differentiate between positive and negative emotions. The experience of positive emotions is something that each one of us desires. Positive emotions can provide us with a pleasant feeling, and help us feel good. But, the usefulness of positive emotions extends far beyond this. Positive feelings play an important role in the cultivation of inner strength and persistence. When these two qualities are combined, they motivate us to work hard and achieve our goals. This in turn can further enhance our experience of positivity.
