30 Thoughts to Keep You Positive

30 Thoughts to Keep You Positive

We all get upset every now and then and lose hope, think that things will never get better and we probably won’t have the life we’ve always been dreaming about.

But that’s not true. Let’s not live in the prison of being sad and depressed because of momentous stuff, other people, daily problems or outer factors.

Positivity can be kept throughout the whole year and once you get used to this attitude towards life, you’ll become much more contented with who you are and the way things turn out. You’ll be smiling more, will focus on the good stuff in your life and that will make you considerably more satisfied and peaceful.

Here are some things to keep in mind that will remind you of how good life actually is:

1. Everything you don’t like about yourself and your life can be changed.

2. Happiness is right here, in the present moment.

3. You deserve to be happy.

4. Your actions inspire people.

    5. With every hardship you encounter, you become stronger.

    6. Your mistakes are your experience, and now you know what not to do next time. That puts you a few steps ahead of others.

    7. At any moment you can meet someone who’s going to change your life.

    8. No matter how bad you feel and what phase you’re going through now, remember two things:
    – it could have been worse;
    – it’s temporary.

    9. Success doesn’t depend on age, nationality, gender, looks, connections, capital, education or religion. These are just outer factors.
    If you have a purpose, stay focused and consistent and believe in yourself and your dreams, you can make them come true.

    10. It’s just a bad day and it doesn’t mean your life sucks. Just wait for tomorrow.

    11. After every time it rains, there comes a rainbow.
    And after every sunset – a sunrise.

    12. Some people look up to you without you even knowing.

    13. No good deed is ever wasted. Keep helping, giving and showing compassion. It’s worth it.

    14. Whatever you think about, you attract. So keep it positive and you’ll have a good life.

    15. Let the result of your efforts be the motivation you need to keep going.

    16. When you fix your relationship with yourself – and start to love, listen to, accept and appreciate yourself for who you are – you’ll be able to have great relationships with other people too.

    17.If you don’t do something right, you can always try again tomorrow.

    18. You can still have the body you want – clean eating + training + consistency is the only formula that actually works. It’s your choice.

    19. The bad things from the past don’t have any place in your present. Learn from what has already happened, let go of it and make space for new amazing memories.

      20. Focus on the things you have in your life. You’ll soon see how rich you are and will start appreciating the abundance you live in.

      21. At that moment things are just the way they should be. Trust the natural flow and don’t interfere.
      In the next moment they’ll be different, but still just as they should be.

      22. All diseases come from stress and unhealthy lifestyle. Change your habits and you can live a healthy life.

      23. You’re unique. And no one can take that from you.

      24. Life is full of opportunities. You just need to take them and give them a try.

      25. You can turn your hobby into a career and find a way to make an income from it. Then you’ll never have to work a day in your life because all your time will be dedicated to your passion – the things you love doing the most.

      26. You have enough time. Slow down. But still, don’t waste it.

      27. You don’t need to work a job you hate. You’re your own boss and can just quit and find something better.

      28. You shouldn’t live by someone else’s standards. Play by your rules and do what you want.

      29. The future is uncertain. That’s the only certain thing. But you can be positive about it and be sure that whatever happens it’s going to be the right thing. And while doing that, enjoy life in the present moment.

        10 Things Happy People Do Differently

        10 Things Happy People Do Differently

        Think being happy is something that happens as a result of luck, circumstance, having money, etc.? Think again.

        Happiness is a mindset. And if you’re looking to improve your ability to find happiness, then check out these 10 things happy people do differently.

        Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. -Dalai Lama

        1. Happy people find balance in their lives.

        Folks who are happy have this in common: they’re content with what they have, and don’t waste a whole lot of time worrying and stressing over things they don’t. Unhappy people do the opposite: they spend too much time thinking about what they don’t have. Happy people lead balanced lives. This means they make time for all the things that are important to them, whether it’s family, friends, career, health, religion, etc.

        2. Happy people abide by the golden rule.

        You know that saying you heard when you were a kid, “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.” Well, happy people truly embody this principle. They treat others with respect. They’re sensitive to the thoughts and feelings of other people. They’re compassionate. And they get treated this way (most of the time) in return.

        3. Happy people don’t sweat the small stuff.

        One of the biggest things happy people do differently compared to unhappy people is they let stuff go. Bad things happen to good people sometimes. Happy people realize this, are able to take things in stride, and move on. Unhappy people tend to dwell on minor inconveniences and issues, which can perpetuate feelings of sadness, guilt, resentment, greed, and anger.

        4. Happy people take responsibility for their actions.

        Happy people aren’t perfect, and they’re well aware of that. When they screw up, they admit it. They recognize their faults and work to improve on them. Unhappy people tend to blame others and always find an excuse why things aren’t going their way. Happy people, on the other hand, live by the mantra:

        “There are two types of people in the world: those that do and those that make excuses why they don’t.”

        5. Happy people surround themselves with other happy people.

          One defining characteristic of happy people is they tend to hang out with other happy people. Misery loves company, and unhappy people gravitate toward others who share their negative sentiments. If you’re struggling with a bout of sadness, depression, worry, or anger, spend more time with your happiest friends or family members. Chances are, you’ll find that their positive attitude rubs off on you.

          6. Happy people are honest with themselves and others.

          People who are happy often exhibit the virtues of honesty and trustworthiness. They would rather give you candid feedback, even when the truth hurts, and they expect the same in return. Happy people respect people who give them an honest opinion.

          7. Happy people show signs of happiness.

          smile

            This one may sound obvious but it’s a key differentiator between happy and unhappy people. Think about your happiest friends. Chances are, the mental image you form is of them smiling, laughing, and appearing genuinely happy. On the flip side, those who aren’t happy tend to look the part. Their posture may be slouched and you may perceive a lack of confidence.

            8. Happy people are passionate.

            Another thing happy people have in common is their ability to find their passions in life and pursue those passions to the fullest. Happy people have found what they’re looking for, and they spend their time doing what they love.

            9. Happy people see challenges as opportunities.

            Folks who are happy accept challenges and use them as opportunities to learn and grow. They turn negatives into positives and make the best out of seemingly bad situations. They don’t dwell on things that are out of their control; rather, they seek solutions and creative ways of overcoming obstacles.

            10. Happy people live in the present.

            While unhappy people tend to dwell on the past and worry about the future, happy people live in the moment. They are grateful for “the now” and focus their efforts on living life to the fullest in the present. Their philosophy is:

            There’s a reason it’s called “the present.” Because life is a gift.

            So if you’d like to bring a little more happiness into your life, think about the 10 principles above and how you can use them to make yourself better.
