Why I believe in Positive Thinking

Life will always throw you a curve ball, even when things are going perfectly. It is imperative to approach every crisis with a positive frame of mind. This is the only way to successfully come out of a difficult situation. Even in the worst crisis there is always something worse. Perhaps you have lost your job. Well, at least you’re not dead. At least you still have your health. At least you still have food. This is an extreme example, but it’s true.

Positive thinking will allow you to approach life constructively and with potential for success. If you look for happiness, you will find happiness. If you feel you will never have happiness, you won’t find happiness. It’s that simple. Smile; it’s free and in most cases you won’t even need to visit Botox Cheshire (I said most…).

If you’re a negative thinker, positive people can seem annoying. “Chin up!” they’ll say when you’re blue or upset. You ignore them and usually yell at them. Try this instead: listen to them. Try to look on the bright side of the crisis and you will likely be able to overcome it.

I try to stay as positive as I can, even if stress is wearing me down. I try to find humour and levity in every situation, regardless of the severity of the issue. Everything is amusing if you change the way you are looking at it.

Positive thinking will also give you confidence to approach any situation, either business or personal. You will secure in yourself and what you do. Confidence cannot be found in a nay-sayer.

But positive thinking isn’t as simple as saying, “everything is good”, or “I’m happy”. You need to believe it and embrace it. You have to be positive all the time, not just when life has got you down. When life is good and everything seems to be going your way, don’t forget why things are going that way. Recognise how positive thinking has changed your life.
