Welcome back to the podcast where we ask the question, what makes you happy?


My name is Jake Pearson. And today we have with us an influencer and positive motivator, Dark Joseph Ravine from Ontario, Canada. How are you, Joseph?


Dark Joseph Ravine  00:39

Hi, how are you?


Jake Pearson  00:40

I'm doing really well. Thanks. How are you?


Dark Joseph Ravine  00:42

I'm doing fabulous. I'm so excited to be here.


Jake Pearson  00:45

I'm so excited to have you on the podcast and talk all things happiness with you. So would you start off with sharing a little bit about what makes you happy?


Dark Joseph Ravine  00:54

Absolutely. What makes me happy as an influencer and positive motivator, is when I can find a way to change somebody's life for the better in a way where I got rid of the negativity in their life, and I put more positivity, let's say somebody was unhappy, because they didn't feel they had anybody to talk to, and I would be the one coming to them and talking to them and telling them, always give good advice to be better. And to understand that, there's going to be downtimes in life and that you got to do your best to find happiness and to see what can make you happy in life. And to do more of that and less of what makes you sad. And for me, if I could be the one making somebody happy and changing someone's life for the better, that will make me the happiest person.


Jake Pearson  01:38

Was it always that way for you? Were you always trying to be that positive person for others?


Dark Joseph Ravine  01:43

Well, when I was younger, I had a lot of struggles, personally going through bullying and going through toxic environments. But as I grew older, and I became more happier, I started to say, I was given happiness in my life. So why not share it with somebody else? Why not share it with people who need it, who want it, because maybe if I share it with other people, maybe that might make a difference. It doesn't necessarily have to be through money or by fame or by things like that. But anyway, you can help somebody that you're given the power to do so you should do it. Because if it can change their life, your actions always have a way of coming back to you. So that's what how I work. 


Jake Pearson  02:23

I love that. I'm a firm believer. 


Dark Joseph Ravine  02:25

Yes, of course. And so that's how I generally always work towards seeing things from the most positive side of the stuff. And as I look in the most positive side of things, that's why I try not to think too much on the negative. And I try to keep life as good as it can be in a way where it helps other people. Because when you're given an opportunity to become famous, like me, I was given this opportunity. So that's why I'm using it for the sake of making the world better by changing lives for the better and making people happy. You know, we all need help one way or another. So if somebody can be the one making the difference in someone else's life, why not?


Jake Pearson  03:06

So what would you say to our listeners right now who are struggling a little bit with their own happiness? What a piece of advice could you give to them?


Dark Joseph Ravine  03:20

My advice I would definitely give to them is that there's a lot of sad people in the world. And life is a struggle for many of us. But you know, if you can work on trying to see more of what makes you happy in your life, and what you would enjoy doing, maybe you're like going up to the mall or watching a movie, or something like that, maybe try to find a way where you can do that a little bit more in your life, then stick with what makes you sad, or if there's something that's bothering you, like a friend, or maybe someone who's even an acquaintance that's not giving you a good feeling or a happy vibe, maybe consider that's not a good friend for you. Or, you know, you have to suck the poison ivy out of your life in order to find the happiness because when you have negativity in your life, it's going to do nothing more than make you sad, and you more unhappy. And I know because I was the same way in my lifetime. And everything I talked about is all from my personal experience. You know, I always say to people that I've been through hard times myself, and I wouldn't want anybody to go through anything I've been through. So while people are young, if I can save somebody from going through hard things like that, I would love to. So that's the advice I would give to people.


Jake Pearson  04:41
