How to have a more positive life?
Positive thinking helps a person find a way in a difficult task or a tough situation. He starts feeling that something can be done to overcome the difficulties that are looming large at that moment. It is said that a serious person finds a way, while an idler finds an excuse. The difference between these two is that of attitude-of being hopeful or being without hope. A person who keeps hopes alive gives himself a chance to succeed, however difficult the task. He puts in earnest endeavors. He may get favor of luck, and help may come from unexpected quarters. On the other hand, a person who loses hope can never make a whole hearted effort.
Benefits of positive life
[The health benefits of positive thinking]
It’s often said that change is the only constant in life. Yet humans are evolutionary predisposed to resist change because of the risk associated with it. Despite this resistance to change, it is more important than ever. Napoleon once said, “One must change one’s tactics every 10 years if one wishes to maintain one’s superiority.” In today’s society the pace of change is immensely faster, and it will only continue to accelerate.

I’m not perfect. I make mistakes and I say things I don’t mean. I have an indecisive and over analytic brain that’s beyond my control, even though I always try to control it. My heart only speaks for itself and once it’s got its own mind-set, there’s nothing I can do to change it. There’s two sides of me; the side that everyone sees and the side that only a handful of people really get to know. I’m not a judgmental person, but I’ve been guilty of judging a book by its cover. Sometimes I lie because I’m too scared for people to see what’s really hidden behind closed doors. I can be pushy, selfish, and overconfident. But also, I can be beyond negative, careless, and I can feel as if all the weight in the world is placed on my shoulders. I can be the happiest person on this planet, but also I can feel as if I’m just done with everything. I get good grades but I also get bad ones. I may be disappointed at times but I always try to control and manage it well. I can be happy but not always , knowing that there might be something bad that will happen. I laugh, I cry, I enjoy and being stupid somehow. Life isn’t perfect but we are trying to make it perfect.
“Our life is what our thoughts make it”.
By simply changing the way we think, we can change our lives. Are we perhaps thinking too much? Rather than pay attention to thinking about what someone else said about me, if I could just focus on my own thoughts, in conserving them, they would become so powerful. One who doesn’t get influenced by what someone else thinks or says about us will always remain happy. If we really care about someone, then ask how they are. Share with them.
Remember that thoughts are a foundation of life. Emerson said: “A man is what he thinks about all day long.” How could he possibly be anything else? The biggest and really the only thing that you and I have to pay any attention to, in our lives is choosing the right thoughts. If we do that we will be headed in the direction of solving all our problems. “Our life is what our thoughts make it”.
“You should never view your challenges as a disadvantage. Instead, it’s important for you to understand that your experience facing and overcoming adversity is actually one of your biggest advantages. “ – — —Michelle Obama
Smooth roads never make good drivers!
Smooth sea never makes good sailors!
Clear Skies never make good pilots!
Problem free life never makes a strong & good person!
Be strong enough to accept the challenges of life.

Imagine yourself to be the type of person you want to be , and then be it. You may have to let go of some bad habits and develop some more positive ones, but don’t give up – for it is only in trying and persisting that dreams come true.
Expect changes to occur, and realize that the power to make those changes comes from within you.
Your thoughts and actions , your choices and decisions , and the way you spend your time determine who you are and who you will become.
You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything. You just need the discipline and determination to see it through. It won’t come instantly , and you may backslide from time to time ,but don’t let that deter you.
Never give up.
“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” — William Shakespeare
When something goes horribly wrong, our emotions hardly feel like a choice. It’s logical to feel upset, angry or guilty about a negative situation, so it only makes sense to react accordingly, right?
Not entirely. Research suggests that our happiness is more of a choice than purely influenced by circumstance. And as the Shakespeare quote above implies, the nature of our situations may just be determined by how we categorize them. In other words, a negative attitude may appear to be the logical reaction, but that doesn’t Continue reading “TRICKS BECOMING A MORE POSITIVE THINKER”
