Why Be Positive?
Thoughts are very powerful. They affect your general attitude. The attitude you carry reflects on your appearance. It doesn’t end there. Your attitude can also affect people around you.
Positive thoughts have a satisfying effect. They are invigorating. This kind of attitude typically energizes the people around you.
Negative thoughts have a draining effect on other people. Aside from making you look gloomy and sad, negative thoughts can turn a festive gathering into a funeral wake.
A positive attitude attracts people, while a negative attitude repels them. People tend to shy away from those who carry a negative attitude.
We can describe attitude as the way of looking at the world. If you opt to focus on the pessimistic things in the world, you have a negative attitude. However, if you choose to focus on the positive things, you are more apt to carry a positive attitude.
A positive attitude promotes better health. Those with a positive attitude have more friends. Projecting a positive attitude also helps one to handle stress and troubles better than those who have a negative attitude.
A positive attitude begins with a healthy self-image. If you love the way you are and are satisfied, confident, and self-assured, you also make others are around feel the same way.
A negative attitude has the opposite effect. So, carrying a negative attitude has a twofold drawback. You feel bad about yourself, and you make others feel the same way.
All around us, the media feeds us nothing but negative thoughts. A study shows that for every 14 things a parent says to his or her child, only one is positive. This is truly a saddening thought. Although it is impossible to keep ourselves from the negative things around us, you can still carry a positive attitude by focusing on the good things, the positive things in life. Hopefully, your positive thoughts will spread and the negativity will begin to disappear.
