Life is unfair, get used to it, but never run away from situations or else situations will run after you. How often have we got that suggestion “Be positive” whenever we feel down or left out, but in actuality, for some people it’s hard to overcome the negative pattern of thoughts. No matter how much theory you explain regarding the benefits of being optimistic, a human being by nature is a pessimist somewhere inside.
Positive outlook, attitude and thinking can speak a lot about a person and that shows up in his/her character as well. People who think positive tend to live longer, stay stress-free, cope up well with situations and most importantly, have a healthy heart. Above all, a positive thinker is always happy no matter what and that happiness reflects in his day to day progress. As the saying goes”You do good, you get good” cannot be any more truer in this regard. An optimist will always have a clean-hearted intention which is another reason why, the society recognizes him/her as an important citizen. Attitude is a state of mind and it can shift quickly time to time. There is negativity inside every person and if he opposes it, he would be lying. It’s just that the way they have seen the world, directly effects their observation about the same. Surprisingly, pessimists get their predictions right more than the optimists do, but then again it’s all about mind state; stable or unstable.
Irrespective of your skills and talent, you’ll always find negative people around you who try to show you down, but that doesn’t imply you succumb to their act. Positive attitude is the only way you can give such people a sweet poison. The smile on your face seriously kills them from inside. Any human being would like to address a person with a positive approach even if the former is a naysayer.
Positive thinkers can construct a good end to a horrible beginning, since they don’t cry over the spilled milk. If something bad happened in the past, that doesn’t mean it will keep repeating itself at regular intervals, unless it’s a scripted movie. One should recognize himself/herself as the cause of things, rather than the effect. Not all results will come your way, but the experience you gained is only going to help you better in future. Being positive saves a massive amount of time wasted in over-judging small things, which otherwise can be utilized for more important affairs of life. Give your views a modification they need and try to change perceptions about different things, since at the end of the day you wouldn’t want to regret for something that never actually happened.
Optimism doesn’t mean nothing bad is ever going to happen, but what’s wrong in being hopeful. We should always try to avert the bad signals from disturbing the phase of good ones. Try to be a lucid optimist, put a smile on the face and hope that most things, if not all, turn out to be in your favor.
