Staying positive is 100% an inner game. It’s the thought that goes on in your mind that determines whether you feel positive or not.
Control your thoughts and you will control your feelings. Control both your thoughts and feelings and you will control your life.
This may or may not be easy for you to do. Here are some tips if controlling how you feel is a challenge for you.
1) Think about other people. If you are reading this you probably have a good life. More good then most.
The fact that you are on your computer with internet access, have free time and are old enough to use a computer means you are better off then 4 Billion people.
There’s a quote I like, “I once was sad because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet.” You are better off then a lot of people and should be grateful.
2) Remember all the good things about your life. Think about your family and friends. Think about the good that’s in your life.
If you focus on the bad things, you will have a negative and bad view on life. Focus on the good in your life.
Make a list, write down everything that’s great about you and your life. Keep that list with you. Rewrite it a bunch of times.
3) Remember when “God closes a door, he opens the window. If one door closes another one opens.
Don’t be so focused on the closed door that you miss the open one. Every struggle comes with it a bigger and better opportunity.
There’s good in failure because we learn in failure. The worst thing someone can have in there life is everything they want, and none of the struggle to get it. They will not be happy because they have nothing to compare happiness to.
We all struggle. Embrace it, it’s a challenge and when you overcome it, you will be better off.
4) Remember you only lose money when you sell. Especially now during the bad financial times. You only lose when you sell though. Hang in there. This means that the bad, isn’t as bad as it seems. It means there is opportunities for you out there. There’s a better deal coming.
