The Powers of a Positive Attitude




I am going to ask you to something very weird right now.  Listen to your thoughts and tell me, “What thoughts fill your head?”

Would you label them as positive, or negative?

If you are walking down the street with these thoughts, do you think anyone who would meet you would be able to tell you what’s on your mind?  Although people will not be able to tell you exactly what you think, they will more or less have an idea of how you are feeling.

Thoughts are very powerful. They affect your general attitude. The attitude you carry reflects on your appearance, too.  And it doesn't end there. Your attitude can also affect people around you.  The type of attitude you carry depends on the choice you make – it’s up to you.

Positive thoughts have a filling effect – they are admittedly invigorating.

The people who are around the person carrying positive thoughts are usually energized.  Negative thoughts on the other hand have a sapping effect on other people.

A positive attitude attracts people, while a negative attitude repels them. People tend to shy away from those who carry a negative attitude.

Studies have shown that a positive attitude promotes better health.  Those with this kind of attitude many times have more friends.  Projecting a positive attitude also helps one to handle stress and problems better than those who have a negative attitude.

A positive attitude begins with a healthy self-image. If you will love the way you are and are satisfied, confident, and self-assured, you also make others are around feel the same way.

If you want to have a positive attitude, you have to feature healthy thoughts.  If you want a healthier outlook in life, you need to think happy thoughts, and you have to hear positive things as well.

So, what can you do?

For starters, you could see a funny movie, you could play with children, spend some time telling jokes with friends.  All these activities fill you with positive stimuli, which in turn promotes positive attitude.

Although it is impossible to keep ourselves from the negative things around us, you can still carry a positive attitude by focusing on the good things, the positive things in life.

And this positive attitude you now carry can be of benefit to other people. Sometimes when other people feel down, the thing people mostly do is try to give them advice. But sometimes, all they need is somebody to sit by them, and listen to them. If you have a positive attitude you may be able to cheer them up without even having to say anything.

As always, if you are beset by troubles, even in your darkest hour, focus on the good things in life, you will always have hope. Problems become something you can overcome.
