Being Positive Is A Choice

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. This adage is old yet still relevant and meaningful.

The importance of having a positive attitude cannot be underestimated. There will always be tough situations in life. Sometimes the best-laid plans can go awry. Sometimes consequences result from unforeseeable circumstances. Sometimes every possible thing that can go wrong goes wrong, usually in the pouring rain. And sometimes you just have a really bad day. These situations highlight how easy it is for obstacles to manifest themselves in your day-to-day life. Yet they also remind us the importance of maintaining a positive attitude.

Choose to be positive

Being positive is choice and decision. Make the decision to live your life this way. You too have that choice and a can also make that decision if you haven’t already. It would be in your best interest too if you made that decision to consciously be positive. If you don’t think so, give it a try for 20 days (or 3 weeks) and see what happens.

Positivity offers many benefits and dividends to be reaped over the years of your life. Positivity raises your vibration. It enhances your aura. It attracts people to you. Positivity makes you a bright light that shines in the midst of the darkness of negativity.

To be positive means to be:

  • Constructive in intention or attitude
  • Showing optimism and confidence
  • Showing pleasing progress, gain, or improvement, with no possibility of doubt
  • Clear and definite

Attitude is a major component of success. Attitude, along with aptitude, determines altitude – how high one will fly in life. Having a positive attitude can help you be successful in every aspect of your life, especially in love, family, business, and social standing.

Just like positivity, optimism creates magnetism. Pessimism repels people. Nobody really likes to be around a pessimistic person. There’s a big difference between a pessimist and an optimist. A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity whereas an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

Doubt of positive outcomes and brighter days, realizing that doubt is the subconscious will to fail in many regards and respects.

Become clear and definite about your purpose in life. Become faithful and trustful in your abilities to live out and perform your life’s higher purpose.

Tools to be positive

Create strategies to be as positive as you can. For example:

  • Give thanks every day
  • Give back by doing a good deed every day
  • Let go…Forgive those who have hurt you
  • Ask for forgiveness of people you’ve hurt
  • Appreciate what you have
  • Compliment a stranger
  • Take in the scenery…even if it’s a flowering plant or tree in your garden
  • Donate something
  • Volunteer
  • Sing your favorite song as loud as you can
  • Smile whenever you see someone

These may seem really basic, but they also really work.

Defeat negativity

Positivity neutralizes negativity.

If person says something negative try to say something positive in response to what was said, and after a couple of rounds of going back and forth and matching negativity with positivity, the negative person would retreat.

The negative person will always retreat because they can’t feed on negativity. Soon, it was impressed upon the negative person not to talk to you, at least about negative stuff, because you don’t feed their negativity.

You defeat negativity in people by remaining positive. It eventually became very easy too because in being and remaining positive. Simply be yourself…it’s the easiest thing to do.
