“Centuries passed and still the same, War in our blood, some things never change. Fighting for land and personal gain, better your life, justify our pain. The end is knocking.”
“Lost” lyric from Avenged Sevenfold truly reflects the present state of humanity. Negative Thoughts have become our asset and it is this negativity that is swallowing up the positive aspects. Our words are actually very important not only for those who hear, but for ourselves as well. The habit of being negative influence our actions. We are actually fond of looking at the darker side, thinking of failure before trying, demotivating others, focusing on difficulties and hardships and do not thinking of something positive that might occur or will actually occur.
Success and failures are part of life, every successful person has failed somewhere, but learning from the failures is the only difference between a successful and failed person. To achieve success one must develop motivation, determination and positivity.
Positive thinking is a mental attitude that admits into the thoughts that are conductive to growth and success. It is our thinking that expects good or bad results. Whatever we think, we find it actually. Not everyone has the ability to remain positive in every situation. A positive mind gets a successful and favorable outcome of every situation.
“Nothing is Impossible”, this sort of thoughts needs to be developed. Every small or big, easy or complex problem have its solution, the only requirement is determination, confidence and hard work to find the solution.
Power of Positivity helps turning dreams into reality and avoiding stress and depression. Bo Bennett rightly said:
“Having a positive mental attitude is asking how something can be done rather than saying it can’t be done.”
The Question then is How to Stay Positive. Optimism is something to strive for, there are various ways through which one can stay determined and positive:
• Look for Something Positive in a Negative Situation
In every situation, there is something good. Most of the time it’s not obvious, we have to look. And sometimes we have to look hard.
• Begin Everyday with Optimism
One must start day with positive affirmation, motivate yourself and must have good hopes for the whole day.
• Think of Failures as Lessons
No one is perfect, everyone makes mistakes and experience failure many times. A successful person is the one who learn from his mistakes and turn failure into lessons.
• Get Rid of Past and Focus on Present
One must focus on the present, the past cannot be undone. Living at the present moment is extremely important. Being in the present moment means that we are aware and mindful of what is happening at this very moment. We are not distracted by deliberations of the past.
• Have a Positive Company
One must stay in the company of Positive people. Negative attracts Negative, remaining in a positive company affects the way of thinking and one can achieve positive outlooks and affirmations.
• Learn to Take Criticism in a good way
One of the most common fears is the fear of criticism. It can hold people back from doing what they want in life. One must take criticism in a healthy way and learn from it.
