                                                              But sometimes, certain situations arise in life that makes it hard to keep a positive outlook. Take steps to make positive thinking become more like your second nature and you’ll reap the biggest benefits.

                                                              1. Spend Time with Positive People

                                                              If you surround yourself with constant complainers, their negativity is likely to rub off on you.

                                                              Spend time with positive friends and family members to increase the likelihood that their positive thinking habits will become yours too. It’s hard to be negative when everyone around you is so positive.

                                                              2. Take Responsibility for Your Behavior

                                                              When you encounter problems and difficulties in life, don’t play the role of the victim. Acknowledge your role in the situation and take responsibility for your behavior.

                                                              Accepting responsibility can help you learn from mistakes and prevent you from blaming others unfairly.

                                                              3. Contribute to the Community

                                                              One of the best ways to feel good about what you have, is to focus on what you have to give.

                                                              Volunteer in some manner and give back to the community. Helping others can give you a new outlook on the world and can assist you with positive thinking.

                                                              4. Read Positive and Inspirational Materials

                                                              Spend time each day reading something that encourages positive thinking. Read the Bible, spiritual material, or inspirational quotes to help you focus on what’s important to you in life. It can be a great way to start and end your day.

                                                              Some recommendations for you:

                                                              5. Recognize and Replace Negative Thoughts

                                                              You won’t be successful at positive thinking if you’re still plagued by frequent negative thoughts. Learn to recognize and replace thoughts that are overly negative. Often, thoughts that include words like “always” and “never” signal that they aren’t true.

                                                              If you find yourself thinking something such as, “I always mess everything up,” replace it with something more realistic such as, “Sometimes I make mistakes but I learn from them.”

                                                              There’s no need to make your thoughts unrealistically positive, but instead, make them more realistic.

                                                              6. Establish and Work Toward Goals

                                                              It’s easier to be positive about problems and setbacks when you have goals that you’re working toward. Goals will give you motivation to overcome those obstacles when you encounter problems along the way. Without clear goals, it’s harder to make decisions and gauge your progress.

                                                              7. Consider the Consequences of Negativity

                                                              Spend some time thinking about the consequences of negative thinking. Often, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

                                                              For example, a person who thinks, “I probably won’t get this job interview,” may put less effort into the interview. As a result, he may decrease his chances of getting the job.

                                                              Create a list of all the ways negative thinking impacts your life. It likely influences your behavior, your relationships, and your feelings. Then, create a list of the ways in which positive thinking could be beneficial.

                                                              8. Offer Compliments to Others

                                                              Look for reasons to compliment others. Be genuine in your praise and compliments, but offer it frequently. This will help you look for the good in other people.

                                                              If you start keeping a daily gratitude list, you’ll start noticing exactly how much you have to be thankful for. This can help you focus on the positive in your life instead of thinking about all the bad things that have happened in the day.

                                                              Getting in the habit of showing an attitude of gratitude makes positive thinking more of a habit. Here’re 40 Simple Ways To Practice Gratitude.
