Living with a Positive Attitude

painting the world

Living with a positive attitude paints your world in bright colors and attracts positive energy.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Realize you have the power to bring about positive change in your life.
  • Squash negative thoughts like a bug.
  • If bad things happen, let them roll off like water on a duck’s back. Turn even the most-sour situation around. Tell yourself, This too shall pass. Look for the good. Choose to be optimistic.
  • Make a conscious effort to be grateful—every moment of every single day—for your life, the things in your life, your gifts and talents, and other people.
  • Focus on what you have, not on what you want.
  • Be inspired by others, but don’t compare yourself to them.
  • Accept criticism with grace, but ignore the naysayers.
  • See bad things as blessings in disguise.
  • See failure as a stepping stone towards success.
  • Surround yourself with happy, optimistic people.
  • Complain less, smile more.
  • Pay it forward. Every day say something nice to a stranger—a sales clerk or bank teller, for instance.

Try it! Put a positive spin on everything today. Glow with optimism and hope. You will love the way it makes you feel!
