10 Habits You Should Take Up To Stay Positive

Every now and then we are exposed to the negative energy around us. What makes it sad was we couldn’t protect ourselves from these sources of negativity. But, with the below way, we can practice it and stay positive.

1. Positivity in negativity

Negativity, if implied properly, could turn into a form of positive energy to push you further. Look out for any optimistic point in the negative comments. Deep inside every negativity contains some forms of positivity for each of us to find. After all, we learn from the bad things that happened to ourselves.

2. Take your time

Whenever something negative falls upon you, take your time to let it pass. It helps to practice self-control and it plays a part of building up the positive energy in you. The time heals and it can build up your confidence to go against the negative remarks thrown upon you.

3. Don’t fear

Never show your fear of the negative forces. Like a prey, when fear is shown, they will surround you and captivate you in their dark energy. Be brave and continue doing what you believe in. You will see how the negative energy will be replaced by the positive aura.

4. Sharing the positivity

To keep the positive energy intact with you, spread the energy out. Add it in someone else’s life and let them recharge with that energy. Share this happiness and confidence with them and in turn it can build up positive thoughts and feelings in your own life. Let everyone be happy together!

5. Accepting criticism

Criticism actually helps in creating a positive value in yourself. Learn to take critiques in a healthy way. Take them as a way to make room for improvement, an idea of how to strive higher and better. Another way of taking criticism is implementing the thought that you are good enough to be noticed and lucky enough to be given a chance to do better.

6. Walk away

Walking away is not always bad. Take a headstart and walk away from the negative energy. You will start feeling as if you were dragged into the negative circle after staying in that circle for too long. Look out for a source of positive energy and stay there, inhale the good air instead.

7. Self-hypnotising

Whenever you feel the negativity starting to cloud you, try self-hypnotising. List all of the good values in yourself, the achievements that you had made and the praises that were showered onto you. Believing in yourself is essential to being positive. Self-confidence is always the key to success.

8. Talk to someone positive

What you give you often get in return. If you talk positively to other people, it’s likely they will do the same for you. Spend time with a positive person. Let them share with you the positive values that they have in them and share your positive energy with them in return.

9. Read positive quotes

Find inspirational quotes and keep them in your journal or notepad. Whenever you start feeling down, flip through those quotes and slowly relate them to yourself. These quotes can eventually transmit the positive energy to yourself and keep you energized. Besides the quotes, inspirational videos or articles can be your medium to gain positive energy.

Exercising can help you stay positive. It can also help in removing stress. Exert yourself by running or spending time at the gym. With all the toxins leaving your body, you will find that the negative energy too running out from yourself. Not only can you stay positive, you can also stay healthy! How wonderful will that be?

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

The ability to reinvent and redefine yourself is a bold, daring and purposeful choice. It doesn’t just happen. You have to make a conscious, intentional choice and then follow through.

If the thought of forging a new path, changing habits, thought patterns and your inner circle of friends scares you – you’re not alone. Change can be a very scary thing. It takes courage, fortitude and a bit of faith to decide to shed your old self and don a new persona. However, it is one of the most critical processes one must repeatedly endure in the pursuit of destiny. Change unlocks new levels of potential.

The Need for Change

Everyday when we wake up, we make a decision. We decide to follow our routine or we decide to go off script and shake things up a bit. For those who are creatures of habit, routine is comfortable, easy and produces very little stress. The problem with this is, after a while you stop growing.

We all reinvent ourselves at some point in our lives. It is absolutely necessary to achieve certain levels of success.

Reflect back on who you were as a teenager and then who you were at 25. Those are two very different people. Most of us are completely different. Your thought patterns changed, your appearance, job, level of education and even your friends– changed. We like to refer to this as “growing up” or maturing and consider it to be one of life’s natural progressions. However the changes you made were purposeful and deliberate.

This process must be a lifelong and continuous cycle. You are never too old to refresh yourself.

    Signs It’s Time to Redefine

    “Just as established products and brands need updating to stay alive and vibrant, you periodically need to refresh or reinvent yourself.”– Mireille Guiliano

    So how do you know when it’s time for a system upgrade? There are signs along the way that alert you that it is time for an overhaul. The first sign is the feeling of being stuck. If you feel like you are in a rut, you’re bored with life or you need some newness and excitement, a self reinvention may be in order. Re-evaluate your life vision and your goals. Is that vision still valid and are your goals consistent with your vision and–are they achievable? If you are off course, it’s time for a change. If you are not moving forward and making progress, it’s time for a change.

    In life, there’s no such thing as neutrality–you’re either moving forward or you are moving backward. Time constantly moves forward and if you are standing still, you are actually losing ground. No matter your age or stage in life– there is always room for improvement.

    “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis

    The second sign that you are due for a change is the occurrence of major life events in which change is forced upon you. Getting married, starting a new job, being promoted, ending a relationship, becoming a parenting or relocating are all prime opportunities to completely overhaul your life.

    When these major shifts occur in your life–you have to shift with them. You can’t have a single mentality and have a successful marriage. You can’t remain selfish and irresponsible, and raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. You can’t be promoted to a supervisory position and keep the same subordinate attitude. Each level of success requires something different from you.

      Consider, for a moment, Arnold Schwarzenegger. People may have different opinions about his character and some of his life choices, but he is a master at reinventing himself. He achieved the ultimate success as a professional body builder by earning the title “Mr. Universe” three times. He then earned a tremendous amount of fame and fortune in the entertainment industry making action/adventure films. And in his latest role, he served two terms as the Governor of California. He succeeded as a professional body builder, a film star and a politician. Each role required massive amounts of change, commitment, strength and hard work.

      And if Arnold can do it…so can you!
