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.

        5 Powerful Ways for Building Fulfilling Relationships

        5 Powerful Ways for Building Fulfilling Relationships

        We all have relationships. We have acquaintances, relatives, colleagues, neighbors and friends. However, for a large percentage of us, many of these relationships are not fulfilling.

        They are unfulfilling because they lack real strength; and they lack real strength because they lack real depth.

        Unfortunately, in today’s society, we tend to have shallow, superficial relationships with others, and it’s extremely hard for this kind of relationships to provide anything more than faint satisfaction.

        I’d like to show you, based on my experience as a communication and confidence coach, how you can add a significant amount of depth, and thus strength, to your relationships and make your social life a whole lot more meaningful.

        Here’re 5 simple yet powerful ways for meaningful relationships building:

        1. Meet More People

        This is an apparent paradox, but the quality of the people you meet has considerably to do with the quantity of people you meet.

        Advertising

        If you don’t know a lot of people and you barely meet one or two new people every season of the year, considering the variety of individuals out there, you won’t meet very often people who are a good match with you in terms of personality, interests and values.

        And since this natural match plays a huge part in building strong relationships, you’ll just as seldom have the opportunity to develop strong relationships.

        Conversely, if you go out a lot, you meet a lot of new people and you constantly expand your social circle, you’re much more likely to meet people you match up well with, and these people have a tremendous potential to become good friends, reliable partners, etc.

        This is why it’s important to meet more people.

        2. Talk about the Things That Matter To You

        A relationship becomes the strongest when two people discover they believe in the same things and have similar interests. It’s these commonalities regarding values and interests that create the strongest emotional connection.

        I’ve noticed that many people keep conversations shallow. They talk about trivial stuff such as the weather, what’s on TV, the lives of various movie stars, but they rarely talk about what really matters to them in life. This is a mistake from my perspective, because it’s the perfect method for a relationship to not develop.

        Advertising

        Talk about the things that truly matter to you and give others a chance to know what you care about and what you believe in. If they believe in the same things and they care about the same things, they’ll eagerly let you know. Thus you’ll find meaningful common ground and you’ll feel more connected.

        3. Express Vulnerability

        Many people try to come off as perfect. They don’t talk about their failures, they hide their shortcomings and they never say anything that could embarrass them.

        This is all just a facade though. You may appear perfect to some, but you know you’re not perfect and they know that too. You’re only human and humans have flaws.

        However, by hiding your flaws, what you do succeed in is appearing cold and impersonal. You seem like a marble statue rather than a real person. And this makes it very hard for anyone to connect with you emotionally.

        Humans connect with other humans, not with ideals. Keep this in mind and don’t be afraid to let your vulnerability and your humanity show. This is what takes a relationship to the next level.

        Take a look at this article and find out Why Showing Vulnerability Actually Proves Your Strength.

        4. Have Integrity

        Integrity, as I see it, is the alignment between your thoughts, your words and your actions. When you say what you think and you do what you said you’ll do, you have integrity.

        This is a crucial trait because if you have integrity, people can trust you. They can trust you to give them an honest feedback, even when it’s hard to shallow, and they can trust you to keep your promises.

        This trust is one of the central pillars of a strong relationship, both in your personal and your professional life. So, as challenging as it can be sometimes, always try to have integrity.

        Be honest with the people around you, even when this will initially hurt them. It’s more important for them to trust you than to not feel hurt. And always do what you promised. Even better, think twice before you promise anything, and only promise what you really can and you are willing to do.

        5. Be There for Others

        Another central pillar of strong relationships is support. Connections between people grow sturdy if they can rely on each other for support when it’s needed, whether that support means a few kind words or several massive actions.

        Of course, you can’t be there for everybody, all the time. Your time, energy and other resources are limited. But what you can do is identify the genuinely important people in your life and then seek to be there as much as possible, at least for them.

        Your support will help them practically, and it will comfort them emotionally; which makes one hell of a difference in a relationship.

        The Bottom Line

        With the right mindset and the right behavior, you can strengthen a wide range of relationships in your life and advance them as far as they can be advanced.

        And with strong relationships, not only that you feel more fulfilled, but you feel more connected to the entire world. You feel that your life has real value, you have more fun and you live in the moment. An entire world of opportunities opens up in front of you.

        Then your task is to simply walk through the open doors.
