A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.
Having a Positive Attitude
I always advise people to focus on what they love and not on what they hate, to look for the good in people instead of the bad, to act as they would love to be not as others tell them they should, for what we focus on expands and
What we resist, not only persists but will also grow in size. ~ Carl Jung
By being a happy person, by focusing on the good rather than the bad, on the positive rather than the negative, on what we want rather than what we don’t want, we are able to transform ourselves, our lives and the lives of those around us.
7 Tremendous Effects of Having a Positive Attitude
When others do nothing but to criticize and complain, you focus on the good in people, you look beyond the surface and the labels. You focus on what can be done not on what was and on what is, you create a new reality for yourself and those around you. You break the rules and you show the world how IMPOSSIBLE can become I’M POSSIBLE.
You’ve gotta have to hope. Without hope life is meaningless. Without hope, life is meaning less and less. ~Author Unknown
2. Boost Self Confidence
We rarely stop to think how powerful our words are and the impact they can have on people’s lives.
Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.
By beautifying our thoughts, by using kind words when we speak with ourselves and with others, by looking for opportunities instead of obstacles, by looking for the good in ourselves and others and by praising the good traits instead of the bad ones, we help boost our own self-esteem, self-confidence and also the self-confidence of those we interact with. By doing so, we help transform negative behaviors into positive ones and we go from being unhappy to being happy.
3. Positive Impact
By having a positive attitude, not only will you have a positive impact on people’s lives by constantly looking for ways to bring the GOOD on the surface through everything you do, but you will also have a positive impact on the world we all live in, for you can’t help one person without helping yourself and without helping the whole world.
“Give yourself entirely to those around you. Be generous with your blessings. A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.”
With a positive attitude, you help people awaken by telling them how much you believe in them and by showing them how much you care about their needs and desires. So many of us live most of our lives on autopilot and by treating people differently and by praising vs. criticizing, you help “awaken the giant within them.” ~ Tony Robbins
“Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back. From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment. The eternal makes you urgent. You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment.” ~ John O’Donohue
