Positive Attitude

Feel That Inner Smile

A smile is something money can’t buy. Positive attitude comes with a smile! Negative thoughts are infectious. Once you wear a long face, if affects all around you, It is very easy to slip into negative thinking. Optimists have failures too, but they tend to blame the failure on factors that are external to themselves, temporary and specific to this instance. For the negative person however, they claim it is their own fault, and it always happens to them. They take Murphy’s Law to heart, “if it can go wrong, it will”…They look on the glass as always half empty. There are also people who have learnt the behavior of negativity, people who “hide their light/talents under a bushel”. The great dinner was only “thrown together” etc. Don’t you just long for them to express joy, laughter and a smile even now and again. Take for example you join a group of friends who are having a great time and you walk in with a long face, what effect will this have on the group? On the contrary, if you walk in to find this group down in the dumps and you approach them with a smile, you automatically make things look up. A smile releases endorphins, which give you a natural high. Whilst reading this think of a person or a place you love. Feel that inner smile.

Once you walk with an air of self-confidence, automatically you will act as a magnet, other people will want to join you, and speak with you. The same goes for wearing that smile. Smiling and positive speak will draw people towards you subconsciously.

Much of our mood comes down to feeling in control of what happens in our life. This determines how we deal with the unpleasant things that befall everyone. Positive people identify the stressor and take a problem-solving approach to deal with it. Others adopt what has been termed “learnt helplessness”. They come to believe that it does not matter what they do. What happens is beyond their control.

 

The Power of Positive ThOUGHTS

 

IT’S NOT WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU IT’S HOW YOU REACT TO WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU.

There are different types of good weather (all that rain?!!)

It’s how we view all that rain?!. I’m not going to let that happen.

You manifest in your reality what you decide you want.

THE “AS IF” Principle  – Acting/Feeling as if all is well

Thinking re-inforces acting – feeling

“AS IF” Principle is most powerful

Actions begin to bring about the feeling.

Your are better than you think you are.

Enjoy living.  YOU CANNOT PUT OFF LIFE AND WAIT FOR RETIREMENT.

It’s all a matter of how you think about yourself.

Once you have the GUTS, GUMPTION AND DRIVE to succeed you will succeed.

SET GOALS

Develop the DESIRE/THE PASSION.

Why not try from tomorrow morning bouncing out of bed and saying…..

GOOD MORNING GOD”

rather than most usual

“GOOD GOD IT’S MORNING”!

 When you think a thought, that THOUGHT becomes an ACTION.

“PLAN YOUR WORK + WORK YOUR PLAN”

 A POSITIVE RESPONSE TO A NEGATIVE SITUATION will yield A POSITIVE RESULT.

Positive thinkers refuse to dwell on the negatives.

They think about and visualise the end result.

Thought  –   Action   –  Habit   =   CHARACTER.

Your subconscious mind records everything.

70% of you lives we’re “drip feeding” arsnic!!! Reading newspapers, radio etc. etc. TV.

What are you feeding into your mind today??

What you put into your mind manifests itself. It resembles dumping garbage into your mind

We have 60,000 THOUGHTS DAILY, 50,000 ARE THE SAME AS YESTERDAY!

We go through our lives with blinkers on

CONSIDER ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT

BE IN THE NOW

BE WHERE YOU ‘RE AT

An unhappy NOW makes an unhappy WAS.

Fill your life with happy NOWS.

If attitudes were for sale would you buy yours?

Optimists bring Joy to both Themselves and Others

Positive attitude comes with a smile.  Optimists identify stresses and then take a problem-solving approach to deal with them.  They tend to blame failure only on factors temporary to a specific instance.  There are however, people who have a “learnt mindset” of negativity.  Don’t you just long for them to express joy, laughter and a smile even now and then!   Some people are inclined to take themselves so seriously because they attach great weight to unimportant issues.  Humor is a wonderful tool for “shaping us back down to size”.  So let’s be grateful for the gift of true humor wherever we encounter it. It gives us strength to continue on.  Laughter does not mean carelessness.  Each of us must make our way through serious times, ordering our priorities and doing what we need to do.

We can make of our experiences what we choose.  We can focus on the traffic hold-ups in the morning as we go to work or we can decide to smile because we have a job to go to and a car to carry us there!  Every experience offers us an opportunity to respond, and our response is always a reflection of our emotions.  We choose to be angry or fearful of what’s ahead.  We can just as easily decide to be happy and confident.  How liberating it will be to claim back control of our positive emotions and attitudes.

You can decide now to allow your mind/thoughts to control you or you control them and put them to work positively for you.  Censor your thoughts and banish the negative ones.  It takes effort but it can be done.  You don’t have to go around with a foolish grin on your face, but do experiment with that inner smile, it works wonders!

Are you tempted to see the glass half empty but would like to view it half full?
