What is Positive Impact?
Bridget C. Williams
Being positive is not about a perfect life, it’s about you mind space.
It’s about choosing to see the good in life, believing in the power of encouragement, and having hoped that things will get better (even when there is chaos). No matter where you’re at with choosing positivity, here are some tips for adding some optimism to your life, even when the world is unfair to you.
Surround yourself with positive influences. Find people who believe in you and your dreams. Seek out others who make your spirit feel full and lifted. The other people who bring you down? Are these individuals necessary in your life, do they stay or are they removed from your life? If they don’t, have the courage to move on. For the record, anyone who makes you feel like crap about yourself does not have a place in your life.
Challenge negative thoughts with positive ones. Negative thoughts are the very foundation of negativity and they can seem hard to avoid or erase. But negativity is all about mindset and mindset is all about creating habits. Whenever you think something negative, try to search for the bright side of the situation. Eventually, it will feel like second nature. Also, information is a wonderful resource for getting started and for understanding what positivity is in general.
Share your issues. Letting your struggles bottle up inside is just a breakdown waiting to happen. If we share our hardships, we can receive encouragement from others that will help us re-focus on our strength, courage, and perseverance. This can be in a variety of ways, from calling a friend to writing a letter, or journal.
