Positivity as a killer app by Shilpa Pandey
My life—and all of our lives—is filled with challenges that make it very difficult to be positive sometimes. However, I know that choosing to be positive has helped me the most in terms of becoming the person I want to be.
Even when things were difficult like my marriage which was drifting apart and losing my child within one month of his birth, I know that being Positive was the only way Forward —and striving to make the best of whatever situation I was experiencing in my Life.
More often than not, I find myself veering toward a positive attitude. (It’s something I never would have done years ago!) I firmly believe that this is because I’ve trained myself to be positive.
I believe that what I get in life is a result of what I give. I believe in projecting positive energy because it comes right back to me.
Teaching myself that positivity is a choice has been one of the greatest things I’ve ever done for myself.
If you want to live a positive, joyful life, one cannot be surrounded by negative people who don’t encourage your happiness.This, as you can imagine, isn’t easy. It can hurt to distance yourself from people—even when you know they aren’t good for you or your current lifestyle.
I also had to get rid of some of my own negative behavior, such as excessive drinking. I had to take a step back and examine which behavior were good for me and which were not.
If you want to live a positive, joyful life, one cannot be surrounded by negative people who don’t encourage your happiness.
I learned to focus on the positive things —such as giving more Positive time to my Son, having a Balanced Life, Holistic wellness for self, working on my Blog and cultivating new & positive relationships—and let go of the negative ones. This process was not easy and, to be honest, is still ongoing….
Everything—good and bad—is a learning experience so, at the very least, you can learn from bad experiences. However, there’s usually even more to it than that. If you really take the time to look, you will usually find something good, something genuinely positive, about every person or situation.
Once I started thinking more positively, I realized I had to reinforce these thoughts and behaviors in myself so they would stick. As with any sort of training, the more you practice, the better you get—and, yes, you can practice being positive.
The best and easiest way to do this is to be positive when it comes to who you are!
You have to share your wealth of positivity with the world. The best way I’ve found to do this is quite simple and basic: Be nice to other people, no matter what. Tell someone s/he looks nice today. Tell someone s/he did a great job on that presentation. Tell your parents or children (or both!) how much you love them and how great they are. When someone is feeling down, do what you can to cheer him or her up.Be kind to all living things.
Today, I am happy when I am able to inspire and motivate people around me with my Optimism. Your health, success, and mental health are all enhanced when you hold a positive viewpoint. Let go of your pessimism and view the world from an enthusiastic perspective. You’ll be glad you did!
