How To Keep A Positive Attitude When Trying To Fulfill Your Dreams

Updated on August 13, 2013

Are You a Positive Person or Negative

Everyone including myself want to know how to keep a positive attitude when trying to fulfill your dreams and I am here to tell you that a positive attitude is a must.

I tried to fulfill many dreams and goals in my life and for some reason or another those dreams never came true. You may ask yourself why didn't my dreams come true and the reason is that I thought negative thinking and telling myself that there is no way I could ever achieve this dream I had. There were too many things in the way, and one of the biggest things were that I had an addiction to alcohol that held me back in many things I wanted in life.

Alcohol makes you stop what you want out of life, because for many of us we put the alcohol in front of everything, including making our dreams in life come true.

I think to myself now being clean and sober, " how in the world could I have let an addiction stand in my way of fulfilling my dreams and goals in the one and only life I have?:"

Never Give up on Yourself

All of us that have dreams in life should NEVER give up on ourselves. You are all smart and intelligent people if you put your mind to it and make your dream a reality as I did.

Granted, it took me many years to finally say to myself, "I will make my dreams come true and I will conquer my addiction to alcohol once and for all." That is what I did. I got out of that negative life I was living in and saying poor poor me. Why is it my life feels so upside down? Why can't I fulfill my dreams and goals I have always wanted to have?

Have you ever felt this way and if you have, what have you done to make your dreams come true?

Once I stopped drinking alcohol my life started to turn around for the better and I was again a very happy person and knew at that moment after quitting drinking that if I could surrender to my demons and live a life of sobriety I could achieve anything I wanted in my one and only life.

You too can do the same thing, not saying that you have an addiction of any sort, but if you do there is hope if you believe in yourself and love yourself enough to stop the addiction that will in time kill you.

Keeping that positive attitude in life will help you achieve and dream and goal you wish to have in your life. Believe me, it works!

Thin about it. How can anyone achieve a dream if you are walking around in life either with a chip on your should and feeling sorry for yourself and just living with negativity in your life everyday. Nothing will come about living with negativity in your life and I can testify to that. Many of us will learn the hard way you happen to have an addiction to alcohol or drugs, BUT that is not the end of your life. You can turn your life around if and only if you have the strength, determination and the desire to make it happen.

      That is a really good advice. I think you make here a very good point. Being negative stops from action and makes feel unhappy and it doesn't have to be like it. I enjoyed reading you hub.

      “Think about it. How can anyone achieve a dream if you are walking around in life either with a chip on your shoulder and feeling sorry for yourself and just living with negativity in your life everyday.”

      This is often the seemingly insurmountable challenge that disappears once one has made up his or her mind with the desire to make their dreams or goals happen.

      Your hub is inspirational, and a pleasure to read.
