The Turning Point!
I usually listen in every morning to some sort of training or inspirational video or article to get my day going on a positive note and make that turning point in my day.
The first step to looking at the positive side of life is to be optimistic! You are capable of optimism even if you are a glass half empty kind of guy. When your car breaks down on the side of the road, you can look at it as an opportunity or a challenge! You can time how long it takes for a tow truck to arrive and when it gets there, be friendly to the tow truck driver! You can both start talking and before you know it, you may have a friend in this world that you didn’t have before! This is only one example of how you can take life’s negatives and turn it into something positive.
Positive thoughts lead to a positive attitude, while negative thoughts lead to a negative attitude. Changing your attitude is as easy as hitting the “pause” button on what you’re thinking and choosing to think different thoughts.
In order to have a positive attitude, focus on the good. Focus on the good in yourself, the good in your life, and the good in others.
Individuals who have a positive attitude will pay attention to the good, rather than bad in people, situations, events. A simple example of a positive attitude; when you are having a very bad run of luck but you still say “Good Morning” rather than “What’s so good about this morning”.
Enjoy and have a wonderful day!
