In this article, I will be going over 10 ways on how to keep a positive mental attitude. Keeping a positive mental attitude is something that will require a little bit of practice but, most importantly, a strong desire to want to achieve it.
A positive mental attitude in life has so many benefits, including better health which is really important. If your health is shot, nothing else will matter to you.
Mastering this one principle will make everything else in your life so much easier. The problems will no longer be as hard to handle. Your downtimes will easier to bear.
And your worries won’t be so heavy on you. Master this art, and you will have control of your results and also what you attract back to you through the great and powerful Law Of Attraction.
One book I personally recommend that you read as well is “Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude” by Napoleon Hill.
It is a great read, and one that will really make you think twice about your life and how LUCKY you really are when you know how to THINK right. Let’s get started.
10 Ways On How To Keep A Positive Mental Attitude:
1). Have Self Love:
A good method of developing a positive mindset is through self-love. Through self-love, a person derives contentment and gratitude in life. With self-love, it is possible to lead a satisfactory life without seeking the approval of others.
In addition to that, self-love restrains a person from thinking that other people are better than he/she is.
We are all equal, we all come in this world with nothing, and we leave with nothing, its the imprint you leave behind on people that matters.
If you don’t like yourself right now, understand that you are unique and that Heavenly Father loves you as well as Jesus Christ.
I believe in a God, and I believe in life after death. I believe we have heavenly parents, and therefore I value myself so much more.
This is because I understand that I am a Spiritual Being living in a physical body. And my real parents in heaven love me greatly.
2). Forget The Past:
In most instances, our past is often full of mistakes or unpleasant circumstances that we are not proud of. Is reliving our past the best remedy to derive healing, closure, and move on with life?
The best way to nurture a positive mindset and enjoy life to the fullest is to leave your past in the past. By choosing to focus on the present, you become motivated to achieve a better life and achieve peace of mind.
Each day is a new day—focus on just today and not all your past mistakes. Take everything one day at a time, be at peace with yourself, and don’t be so hard on yourself. Life has its ups and downs; it’s how we respond to it instead of reacting to it mentally.
3). Develop Positive Talk:
Assuming a negative attitude and tone when expressing yourself is a deterrent to a meaningful life since you develop negative thoughts over time.
Making it a habit to whine about your life, your partner, or your line of job only breeds negativity in life and gives you more of the same through the Law Of Attraction.
To remedy negativity in life, one of the best things to practice is speaking positively about your life out loud in a mirror.
The more good things you speak about your life, the more your frame of mind is attuned positively, and in the long run, you will become more uplifting to yourself and others.
Why talk positively in the mirror out loud? Because that is a great way to touch your subconscious mind through feeling. Something about out loud is magical.
And when you do it enough, you will begin to notice your thoughts more throughout each day and will strive to be more positive.
I do this all the time, and it has changed me so much. You will actually begin to feel more confident when you do this and happier.
That’s the point of it, and when you do it enough, you NATURALLY become more positive and happy.
4). Embrace A Positive Approach To Set Backs:
It is not easy to accept failure when it comes knocking on your door. However, it is crucial to understand that, at times, failure is meant to make you more zealous in your quest to succeed in life.
Instead of engaging in self-pity and feeling hopeless, learn to accept your failures in life and press forward. Besides, let failure be an opportunity to cultivate success.
There is always something to learn when you don’t succeed the first time, so look for that one thing to learn.
And I really should not use the word failure but the words “temporary setback.” Failure is only when you quit and give up.
5). Associate Yourself With Positive People Only:
Show me your friends, and I will tell you who you are. This is a common phrase that is used to affirm the need to have people who add positive impacts on our lives.
Hence it is wise to make friendship bonds with people who are focused in life for massive goals and motivate you to fulfill your goals.
Further, interacting with positive people enables a person to act and think in a positive way much more easily.
Be around people that encourage you and talk to you about your dreams, goals, and aspirations. Who check in on you and see how the progress is coming along. Make sure they are more successful than you and are pulling you up to their level.
People who succeed massively in life want to help others, BUT ONLY THOSE WHO WANT IT. Find people who are where you want to be financially and do as they do (ethics, of course).
These people are a force to be reckoned with. They are so positive and confident and a hell of a lot of fun to be around.
6). Make Your Life Simple:
Do what you love and work at it every single day. Have a vision for your life, and go get it. Life needs to be simple, and that starts with you knowing what you want and pressing forward towards it with the thought in mind, “I will never ever quit.”
Vision is everything because it keeps things in perspective, such as what you do in life should be towards that vision. I’m talking about something so big and juicy that scares you and makes you excited at the same time.
You don’t know HOW you are going to do it; you KNOW you are, and then you press forward.
7). Put On A Smile:
A smile has the power to uplift your morale in life continuously. According to experts, a smile stimulates the release of the feel-good hormones, which in turn enhances a positive attitude.
As you go about your daily activities, make it a habit to think and reminisce about good old memories that can make you smile.
When you see people, for the love of God, smile at them, don’t look away. Be that positive force that the world needs.
8). Know Your Purpose:
Understanding your purpose in life gives you a foundation to lean on in the face of life’s trials and tribulations. A purpose-driven life is the bedrock of a positive attitude.
Additionally, knowing your purpose brings about order in your life and ensures your life remains on course. This is where your vision really comes into play.
Get emotionally involved with it, and act like it’s accomplished now, and as your doing that, press towards that vision every day. Just do something!
9). Keep Calm:
It is unavoidable to encounter people who provoke you to react negatively. For instance, a person might speak in an impolite way or intimidate you.
How you choose to react affects how you feel in the long run. Rather than becoming reactive, control your emotions; at times, silence is the best action to take.
Respond, don’t react. Responding to situations keeps your mental state in check; reacting is what causes you to lose your inner state and become a victim of what is happening around you.
This takes some series practice, but it is well worth the effort. It’s life-changing, and when you know that you are in control of how you feel, you will NEVER let stuff get to you again; you ignore and move on.
10). Be Optimistic In Life:
Optimism is the vehicle that enables each one of us to traverse the journey of life capably. Optimism in life is gained through having hope and faith even when one’s present situations seem hopeless.
Look for all the good in everything, count your blessings, feel the gratitude. Life really could be so much worse.
If you want to feel better instantly, think of this “ALL YOUR BLESSINGS” and compare that to 3rd world country and imagine some kids looking at what you have. See how they respond to you.
You prosperous now, more so than most of the world, hell, you have running water, and places out there don’t.
We take so many things for granted and forgot what else is going on out there. YOU ARE BLESSED!, so say THANK YOU to God or whatever higher power you believe in.
In conclusion, you are the author of your life. It is your sole responsibility to ensure your life assumes a positive angle.
Putting into practice the above-discussed techniques will guarantee a successful happier, and more productive life.
Especially when you apply gratitude multiple times throughout the day and feel it inside. Doing that ONE THING will help you to stay so positive.
How do I know? Because I do it all the time, and this practice has changed my life and continues to do so every day!
