Life isn’t just about the things we can control, and those we can’t control. It is about how we choose to view the world around us.
Nothing can do wonders quite like changing your outlook. I realize how much my life has changed from teaching myself to redirect negative thoughts and feelings and search for what else I may get out of a situation.
The more you inject positive and rational responses into your daily life, the easier it becomes and the lighter you feel.
Search for Opportunities where others see Roadblocks.
When I don’t know something, instead of getting defensive or frustrated, I use it as a chance to learn. If someone is cruel to me or hurts me. I use this as a chance to understand that person, understand humanity and myself.
Even if it’s a relationship that ends or a job. Instead of just being angry or sad, I now try focus on what good was in it. What did I learn from this? How will this help me be a better person and find a person or job that is better for me?
If I have a limitation or I am in some sort of minority group then I don’t look at myself as disadvantaged. Instead, I look at myself as being capable of being more kind and compassionate, because of the life and situations I’ve experienced.
I started with just dealing with the everyday small things more positively, to help me eventually tackle the bigger things.
Small, continually changes to into more positive perspective can change your life.
