A Positive Attitude is the Key to Success
Have a Positive Attitude!
It is important to have a positive attitude towards life in order to enjoy the best of health and to achieve success in the things which really matter. Often people are kept back from reaching their full potential by their own negativity.
Many older persons have the opportunity to reflect on their lives and sadly, they lament their failures, blaming them on misfortune, lack of opportunities, injustice or whatever else they might think of when the truth of the matter is that they were hindered from achieving their dreams by their own negative attitude. They might have hidden behind fears and insecurities and allowed good opportunities to pass them by. They might have lived a life without faith; without hope; without vision. They might have continuously stifled their potential to succeed beneath a blanket of negativity.
Believe in Yourself and Believe in God!
Let me say that nothing is impossible with God and granted that we are all endowed with different gifts, everyone has the potential to succeed in life. However, we can be our own worst enemies when our fears, doubts, lack of confidence and lack of faith in God impede our progress and prevent us from achieving our goals. When God calls us to fullfil a duty, he is ready to give us all that we need to accomplish it. "If God takes you to it,he will surely see you through it" (Author unknown).By doubting our ability to succeed we are, in effect, doubting God's ability to deliver his promises.
It is therefore important to avoid negativity and instead speak and manifest positivity into our lives. Our positivity must begin with us!
Points to Ponder
The following pointers might be useful in finding the right approach to being positive.
- Have faith in yourself - Believe that you are a creature of God and so you are capable of succeeding for God does not uphold failure.
- Identify your God give abilities and display them so that you can be assisted in nurturing them. Do not try to be like anybody else for as the body has different parts so we, as Christ’s body, have different gifts and talents.
- Claim your destiny - Set goals for your life and plan the process which will lead to attainment of these goals. - Stay focused!
- Embrace opportunities; they do not always knock at your door twice. There is always someone else who will be happy to enter immediately through that doorway which you just ignored.
- Empower yourself - Practice/train/study (whichever is necessary in your case).Seek assistance from positive/experienced/successful people. Someone will be willing to listen and assist.
- Associate with other positive people who provide guidance, support and encouragement for those are the people who will keep you on track.
- Avoid negative people - the moaners and complainers; the jerkers and shirkers for they will only pull you back or cause you to lose focus.
- Persevere and keep the faith . Things won’t always be easy. In fact, more often than not things may appear to be daunting. However, the trick is not to be intimidated by the magnitude of the challenge for very often a challenge turns out to be nothing at all when taken step by step or with a well thought out approach. There is a creole saying, ‘say zye ki per twavay’ (it is the eyes that fear the task). This means that the work is nowhere near as difficult as it may appear to be. How true!
- Inspire Yourself -.Tell yourself that you will succeed and work towards making it true. Do not accept defeat or failure for there is always another road; another option which you can explore in order to achieve your goal.
- Treat yourself to something you like when you have had a less than successful day. Certainly you can cheer yourself up! It works! And the next day you start over with a new approach!
- Celebrate - Be happy for your successes and share your joy with those who support you.
- Pray about everything and you will experience God’s hand in your life. Never lose your faith in God! When you have had an exceptionally great day take time off to praise the Lord. And even if the day has not been that great, just stop and count at least three simple blessings that you can thank God for.
