50 Positive Quotes From Silver Kalle's Book, 'Join Positive Thoughts: Positive Thoughts From Different People Around The World'
Quotes, Self

Share your positivity.

It is really easy to get bogged down in all the negativity that is constantly being thrown our way in life. There's constant negativity, and it starts to affect our ways of thinking. Negativity can range from bullying in school to the harsh realities of life. It's easy to give in to negative thoughts and believe that we are going to amount to nothing. But that's not the case.

Silver Kalle decided to do something to bring positivity back into everyone's lives. He started the movement Join Positive Thoughts in September 2016 and he published a book, Join Positive Thoughts: Positive Thoughts From Different People Around The World, containing the quotes of people from around the world.

Originally from Estonia, Kalle left in 2011 and started traveling with a rock band to different countries. He spent a lot of time living on the streets while trying to sell music to survive. Barely keeping himself afloat, he was never happy, so he left the band and made an album himself  but that didn't get him anywhere either.

Then when Silver Kalle returned back to Estonia, he started working and realized just how negative and dark the world is, and he wondered where the positivity in life is if there is constant negativity surrounding us. It was a depressing time for him so he thought, "What if I start asking random people on the street for positive thoughts. I will let them write something positive, something that inspires them or motivates others."

Silver has traveled to 10 countries so far with the book, collecting life advice and positive thoughts from people all over the world, including people from Austria, Germany, Slovenia, Switzerland, Lichenstein, Spain, Monaco, and France.

Eager to surround himself with positivity and preach it to others, he has people of all ages write in his book. Kalle says he wants to know what positivity means to random, average people, and that he wants to give people an outlet for sharing people's life experiences. "This book has been visiting people, from different stores, hotels, random people on the streets in different cities and countries."

He is starting up his quest for positive thoughts again after a short hiatus, but this time he is going to start recording videos as well. Kalle explained that his goal "is to shake the world. With positivity and living as an example that it is possible."
