Does a positive attitude happen on its own?
Believe it or not, it doesn’t.
A positive attitude is the result of your beliefs, expectations, habits, and focus. It has a positive impact on your relationships, creativity, career, and overall enjoyment. You’re more capable when you feel good and have high expectations!
Here are some things you can do to maintain and foster a positive attitude:
1️⃣Create a gratitude list. It’s easy to focus on what you don’t have in life. Change your focus and remind yourself of all the great things you already have. Each morning and evening, rattle off a list of the people, things, and experiences that make you feel grateful.
2️⃣Make exciting plans. It’s easier to be happy with a few exciting things planned for the near future. Planning a trip to Paris would be nice, but simple things work well, too. A planned trip to the movies or the spa with a friend can make the week more enjoyable. Have something you can look forward to each week.
3️⃣Do something nice, anonymously. It’s thrilling to do something nice for someone without their knowledge. You feel like a superhero. Mow your neighbor’s grass or send someone flowers. Give a gift card to the elderly couple down the street. Do something and keep your involvement a secret.
