Positivity (vs. Discouragement)
Maintaining a good attitude, even when faced with difficulty
To practice Positivity I will:
- Practice gratitude
- Do good things for others
- Make time to play and relax
- Understand that obstacles are there to challenge me
- Think good thoughts
You’ve heard it before from philosophers to Oprah that positive thinking leads to a more healthy and happy life. Controlling the inner voice so that it is a source of positivity and encouragement is not as easy as it sounds but just like any new skill, practice makes perfect. Even with the rosiest of outlooks, bad things will still happen. It is how we react to these trials that make us who we are. Seeing obstacles as challenges that help us strengthen our character, helps to keep us seeing the bright side of things and learning from our mistakes and failures.
This month, put on those rose-colored glasses and amp up your positivity.
“A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.”
