Thinking positively is how I've made it this far. If you've read my other posts, you already know that me and the universe have had an ongoing battle. How I made it through all that? Thinking positively.
How to Think Positively
There are 365 days a year. Some of those days will be the best days of your life. And some of those days you'll think, "How is all this bad stuff happening to me?!?" The key to thinking positively is knowing that it will get better. And when you feel like things couldn't possibly get worse, think of this quote.
"You know what's great about hitting rock bottom? There's only one way left to go and that's up!" - Buster Moon, SING!
Why you should start thinking positively
1. Be opened minded and listen to others
Sometimes when others are having a bad day, all they need is to talk to someone who sees the glass half full. Positivity is a great characteristic to have. Sometime it's hard to find in people so when it is found, it is much more valued.
2. Get through tough situations easier
Having a positive outlook on life will take you through the tough times. I'm no pessimist, but it is a fact that bad things will most likely happen to you at some point. If you think, "Oh the tough times will be over soon; they can't last forever; tomorrow will be better" you will be able to persevere better than a person who thinks, "Great this is my life now; it's going to be bad forever; why should I even bother now."
3. You're happier!
Who would decline a chance to be happier? I was once told, "If it doesn't hurt you and will only make life better, then why not?" So I ask the same of you. If you can be positive and life a better life why wouldn't you.
How Thinking Positively Helped Me
There have been many road bumps in my life that I have overcome. Thinking positively really helped me through all those situations. For example when I had my concussion (which is a brain injury), I believed that I was going to get better. I thought positively rather than thinking "Oh great, I'm going to struggle the rest of my life now." Another example is this website. If you know me well, you would know I'm a very gong-ho person. Every opportunity to learn something new, I take it. During the beta stages of my website building when I told people my plans on sharing my knowledge globally, they would look at me skeptically. I don't blame them, if someone went up to me saying that they wanted to build a website in less than a month and post content on it weekly, I'd have thought they have lost their mind! So when people thought that this website wasn't going to make it, I persevered and continued with my dreams and boy, am I glad I did!
