There is something very charismatic about positivity. It's not just a mindset but a personality in itself. No wonder why we love to talk to individuals who give us positive vibes; their aura is so captivating that their positivity brightens up everyone. Did you ever think about what makes positivity so powerful and impactful? Let's dive in to see why.

In a very similar but very scientific way, Barbra L. Fredrickson, in 2001, proposed the theory of positive emotions called Broaden and Built theory. She stated that positive emotions have a broadening effect on us. They enable us to observe and think beyond a narrower perspective, allowing us the see the broader picture.
