Positive Thinking And Positive Mental Attitude, We All Need It.
The inspiration for this article came from a fellow writer in a conversation on Facebook. Thanks Daisy Mariposa, for making me realise that negativity is a waste of time and that we should focus most on the things that we want. The things that we think about the most tend to be the things that we get, I am sure you will agree with me.
Think about a problem or a negative situation and you tend to draw to you, the things that you don't want to happen.
Think about good things and positive situations and the opposite happens. You will certainly have situations that you can remember where you have got the thing that was uppermost in your mind whether it was good or indeed bad.
I can relate to this and I am and have been trying for some time now to concentrate on good things and not to give time to thinking negative things. This is difficult to do as the majority of people we come into contact with on a daily basis are of a negative disposition. This is not good and you need to isolate yourself from these people. Yes you may have to work with them, but you don't have to get down to their level of moaning and groaning about their lot in life.
There are so many inspirational quotes around on positive thinking and positive mental attitude. One of my favourites is ' If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you can't.' For me this is one of THE most motivational quotes ever.
Oh look, it's that self fulfilling prophecy thingy again. Seems to keep cropping up a lot just recently.
And Positive Mental Attitude
In these days of financial crisis and doom and gloom it is all the more important to have a positive mental attitude just to get through the day.You have to admit that you do function better on a daily basis when you are upbeat about things. The minute we become down we show signs of slow down in both mind and body. This in turn causes us to be lethargic and we no longer have the focus that we all need to make the best of our everyday lives.
We All Need It !
Enough said. There is no question that we all need this.
Imagine what a powerful world we would live in if we all worked towards our goals and had daily focus by having a positive attitude.
It costs nothing to try.
How to be positive.
Just try it, that is how to be positive. A positive start is all that is required.
You can spend your life being negative and never try to change your situation or you can ditch your negative thoughts and choose positive ones. The good thing is that if you do this and it works for you, it has cost you nothing and you will have gained so much. Now I am by no means an expert on the subject, but a fellow article writer has also written on the subject so I would suggest you might like to take a look after reading this article. http://asknrj.hubpages.com/hub/Being-positive-is-more-than-being-successful
Practice being positive for 30 days.
They say that if you do something everyday for 30 days it is habit forming. Now I am not saying that you can become 100% positive overnight but I do think that if you try to be positive at least once a day for 30 days you will form a new and better habit.
Remember the saying 'you reap what you sow'
The message is, be positive and positive things will begin to happen. Be negative and negative things will find you.
