The Power Of Positivity In Work And In Life

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine—and shadows will fall behind you.” — Walt Whitman

We all know that one person who immediately makes us feel heavy after a conversation with them.

They will find everything that is wrong or could go wrong in a situation and can’t bear to see the good in anything. They focus on everything that isn’t going right rather than being thankful for the things that are. You probably have someone who immediately jumps into your mind, or you might even be thinking,

“yes, this is me.”

Mari Holden is personally someone who is a massive believer in the power of a positive mindset

and has seen miraculous changes in people’s lives when they switch their mindsets and thoughts to be more positive. People often settle for things in their lives that don’t make them happy.

This could be their careers, their families and relationships, or their lifestyles and health.

Rather than focusing on the good in these areas and identifying specific changes that could be made to improve further, they would rather complain about how awful it is.

As a result, these people may find themselves downgrading their aspirations to match their realities.

Consider this for a second:

Rather than downgrading your aspirations and feeling negative every day, imagine if you could upgrade your self-belief and enhance your positive thoughts to meet your vision and goals instead.

The fact is, you can. It is a choice you can make and the outcome will be a direct reflection of that. Our minds are always full of thoughts, even if we don’t realize it, and they influence every decision and action that we take.

You may have noticed that your thoughts were very positive from a young age, before being shaped by the belief systems and behaviors of others around you.

So, how can you live and see things in a more positive way if it’s not something that comes naturally to you?

Replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts.

Every time you become consciously aware of a negative thought, try to replace it with a more positive thought. One way to do this is to add “but” at the end of the thought, i.e., “I have just lost my best-paying client, but this enables me to have the capacity to assist new clients.”

Always choose to see the positive in a situation.

This is often a challenge, but the good news is that once you do anything a certain number of times, it becomes a habit and will feel more natural. Say you find yourself unemployed. Rather than thinking “why is this happening to me?” ask yourself, “what is this teaching me?” See that it brings an opportunity into your life to explore and try something you really enjoy.

Take time out of each day to be grateful.

This is so simple but it’s something many people are guilty of rarely doing. At the same time every day, think of five things you have for which to be grateful. This can be anything, big or small.

Be aware of the mental images you allow yourself to focus on.

If you are a worst-case scenario type of person, take the time to ask yourself if the things you are worrying about are 1) true and 2) likely to happen. Chances are they aren’t, and the worst-case scenario is often not as big of a deal as you think it is. Our imaginations can run away with us, leaving us in a state of panic over scenarios that may never actually materialize.

Always remember that you are what you think you are and you are the decision-maker.

If life isn’t how you wish it to be, first take the time to think about what’s wrong and how you could change it

 — but then take the time to give gratitude for what makes you happy.

“Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.” —Colin Powell

“You’re off to great places, today is your day. Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way.” —Dr. Seuss

“Keep a positive attitude, even if results don’t seem to be occurring as quickly as you want them to.” —James Thompson

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” —Dolly Parton

“You need an attitude to survive. You’re not just serving yourself. You help others to grow up and you grow with them.” —Oprah Winfrey

“The sun himself is weak when he first rises, and gathers strength and courage as the day gets on.” —Charles Dickens

“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” —Thomas Jefferson

“You are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” —Les Brown

“Changing your mindset is a game changer.” —Frank Sonnenberg

"Two things define you: Your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything." –George Bernard Shaw

“All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them.” —Walt Disney

“I will always find a way and a way will always find me.” —Charles F. Glassman

“The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do.” —Kobe Bryant

With that, we hope this helps provoke some good thinking and help you jump-start this week!

As always...

BE Kind, Do Fearless.
