Having a positive attitude is simply the opposite of having a negative attitude.
Have you ever heard about any successful person having a constant negative attitude?
Indeed who would want to work with such a person, who wants to be with such a person; they would just drag you and other people down.
How could life enhancing decisions ever get made?
Success begins with a projection of intentions and a solid trust in a successful outcome This is positivity.
Who decides if you should be positive or negative?
Society can deem that you behave in a certain manner when certain circumstance occurs.
Who said you should be miserable for instance if you get into debt or if your partner leaves you?
Emotions go with this territory but you don’t have to wear misery forever;you can get yourself through the emotion and out the other end.
It seems like a negative world that we live in because all perceived bad situations are mostly presented through the well defined role of the media. Disasters, bad news and negative headlines get noticed. Where is the good news media?
Positive people are different because they certainly have a way of turning "failure" into a success, have success in their lives, are happier, healthier, and know less stress.
Why? - Because they trust the future with confidence and have gratitude for what life sends their way.
It is important to realize that our thoughts:
Positive people do have emotional pain in their lives but realize that emotions and thoughts can be used as a means to change life for the better.
It is necessary to recognize emotions and allow them in, so they can pass through (sometimes this takes time, patience and trust).You then come out the other end of the emotion to a clearer and better place. This is necessary so that you do not fill to overflowing with unrecognized emotions and become ill.
If you do not allow emotions to go through you, how can you heal or how can you feel for other people in perhaps a similar situation?
In not developing empathy,you can remain stuck in judging others (Ego) and can be of a mindset "I do not wish to know your problem - I have problems of my own". In this mindset you will be focussing exclusively on your own problems and giving them energy to grow.
However there are people who are just so stuck in negativity that you cannot help them. But you are not responsible for anyone except yourself; you can only do so much.
So wish these people well and hold an intention that somehow they will break free from negativity, get through their emotions and become positive.
Having a positive attitude attracts positive things and people; remember you are your thoughts
Some typical attributes of a positive person:
Benefits of a positive attitude.
Changing to a positive attitude can be helped by looking on at yourself and the vocabulary you use. This can help to identify if you have a positive attitude to life.
Looking on at yourself
Recognize your vocabulary:
Do you say negative things all the time?
All of this type of behavior and thinking is self defeating.
How can you go on your positive life’s journey while getting in your own way all the time, it is impossible.
Try also to realize the effect you may have on others when using negative expressions.
A positive attitude changes other people's worlds too, life opens up, you are giving to others, and life can then give back to you.
Your positivity will start to change your (Karma).
When you stop using negative phases you actually feel better. It is from that simple "better point" that you can start to grow the "getting better bit". And it can get better and better!
Doesn't that sound simple? And so it is!
We all try to make life complex but it does not have to be.
If you find your attitude and vocabulary are negative just do the opposite (topsy turvy).
A simple change in your vocabulary and attitude can really help you attain a positive outlook.
Try to talk and act more like this:
Do not be hard on yourself, just knowing that you wish to be positive is enough and with practice, you will succeed. There will be definite wonderful changes in your life.
