Listen to your head for a while and your thoughts. If I ask what type of thoughts they are, can you tell me whether they are positive or negative?
And when you are walking down the street with such thoughts in your head, do you think the passersby can think what is in your mind?
While the answer to the first question is in your hands, the second one is pretty generic. Even though they cannot say exactly what your thoughts are, they can get the feeling of it.
And when you enter a party, do your friends go all silent as if something bad happened or do they just perk up as if something great happened?
The answers to all these questions are on your frame of mind.
The thoughts you have in your head affects you, your attitudes, looks and also the people around you. And the attitudes you carry out with you depends on you, can be either positive or negative. Positive thoughts are filling and invigorating. The people around a positive thoughts person seems energized by his/her attitude while the negative thoughts have a sapping effect, makes you all gloomy and sad and turns the surroundings moody as well.
Attitude can also be defined by the way you look at the world. If you always look at the negative things of the world, your head can be filled with negative thoughts and vice versa.
There is so much you can gain from positive attitudes. Studies say that you can gain better health, friends, handle stress and problems much better etc.
The positive attitude first starts with you and your healthy image. If you are confident, satisfied and self-assured about yourself, you can make the others around you feel the same way. The negative attitudes about yourself make you feel bad thus making the ones around you feel the same way.
When you want to have a positive attitude you have to feed your head with healthy thoughts. Due to media and its constant dose of bad news this is difficult and also studies show that out of every 14 things parents say to their children, only one is positive, which is sad.
For starters, to hear and gather happy thoughts, you can spend time with children or with friends, go watch a funny movie etc which will fill you with positive stimuli thus promoting a positive attitude.
Although negative thoughts never leave us, we can always face the world with a positive attitude and appreciate the positive things about our lives. This can help you as well as those who are around. Sometimes when people face difficulties, they seek advice, but most of the times what they really need is some positive company to be with them and listen and a positive attitude and a smiling person can cheer them up without even saying a word.
Positive thoughts and attitude seems interesting and good but we often find many people caught in negative thoughts as well. It’s not wrong to be sad and gloomy, we all have a time to mourn but dwelling on negative thoughts for far too long is not healthy either. The best thing to do at your darkest hours is to just focus on the good things in your life, only the positive things and light up. When you do that, all your problems become things you can overcome.
There’s nothing to lose by being positive, all you have is to gain. Positive attitudes retards aging, makes you healthier, helps you manage stress and keeps all around you happy as well. So why not be positive about it and adopt a positive attitude today?
