Living with a positive perspective has immense benefits. You live up to your potential –you develop the capacity to embrace all opportunities with enthusiasm, and you allow the simple things in life to lift you.
Plus living with positivity allows you to become free to enjoy every day, and every pursuit, even when facing great challenges.
Here are some tips for staying positive:
Keep calm and carry on. Try to practice acceptance: approach each situation with equanimity, and a sense that it is neither good nor bad. It just “is”. This way you are not riding a constant roller-coaster of emotions with every event that happens in your life.
Look for the silver lining. There’s always something positive in every situation. Sometimes you just have to look for it (sometimes very hard!).
Watch your language. Make a conscious effort to only speak in positive terms. At first it will be an effort, but once you start speaking positively, you will begin thinking positively. And it will become second nature.
Don’t keep it to yourself. Just as bad moods and negativity are contagious, so are good moods and positivity. A fun and optimistic outlook on life is contagious. And it makes you a joy to be around.
