How to Have a Positive Attitude

This is part two of a three part series on How to Develop a Positive Attitude.

4.  Be Resilient
Most people have lives that have highs and lows.  Get used to change because that is the only thing that is guaranteed.  Always be ready to face setbacks with perseverance. Work through the struggle.  Every struggle has a message for us.  The low points in our life can create a whole new career helping other people though a similar struggle.  Take life’s difficulties as challenges rather than with fear, self-pity, inferiority or blame. Develop the habit of positive self-talk and remind yourself that you are strong.   You can grow stronger and wiser as you handle life’s challenges.   I work with the nonprofit Girls Inc. Metro Denver. Their mission is to inspire girls to be strong, smart and bold.  Wouldn’t it be great if everyone felt strong, smart and bold?

 5.  Don’t Believe Everything Your Inner Voice Says

Listen to your inner voice and talk to it.  You might be saying, “What inner voice?”  It’s that voice in your head that is saying, “We don’t have an inner voice.  What is she talking about?”  Our inner dialogue is our biggest strength and a big critic.  When my inner voice tries to hold me back in my comfort zone, I say, “Thanks for sharing,” and move on.  It’s important to have a good relationship with your inner voice.  The purpose of your inner voice is to keep you safe so listen to comments and see if they are legitimate.  Just remember that what your inner voice says is an opinion and not fact.

6.  Laugh Away

Laughter is the best medicine so make it a part of your day. Laughter is known to be a mood elevator, a stress reliever and has many health benefits. If you feel down, read funny stories or joke books. Watch a comedy.  See the funny side of things and you will soon realize, that life is a complex, yet funny game.  If you don’t feel like laughing, fake it.  Your brain doesn’t know if something is true so you can fake a laugh and your brain will think it is real.

 7.  Seize the day

A proverb by Carpe Diem goes, “ Always enjoy the moment. Do not worry about your past or future. Live for the day. What has happened is irreversible and what will happen is unknown, so try and enjoy what you have.”  Take time to smell the roses and thoroughly enjoy TODAY.  I like the song that talks about live like you are dying.  Priorities shift when you think you are going to die. People tend to spend more time enjoying the moment, less time at work and more time with family and friends.
