Life is hard and there’s a lot of things that can bring us down. Financial troubles, death, divorce, kids being naughty, or your job sucks are just a few.
It’s also amazing that we have the opportunity to do incredible things within our lifetimes. We can travel all around the world, be parents, create businesses, have an amazing marriage, or give to charities.
We will experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows through our life.
It’s difficult at times to be positive when life throws you through these lows.
Whatever the situation is, there are two choices.
We can either be negative, put our head down, and just pout about the situation. Or we can look at the bright side of the situation, keep fighting, and give out an extreme amount of positivity.
Everyday we see people be on the negative side of every situation and others are positive no matter what. The side you end up choosing is ultimately up to you.
Most Things Don’t Matter
I have learned over time that 9 out of 10 times the situation I would get upset over really doesn’t matter.
We all get upset over things everyday. It can be the traffic, our boss, the customers we deal with, the weather, and so on.
The situation might actually be a big deal, but I’m guessing it’s really a small one. If it is a big deal then that can be different. I feel like it’s not worth it to be in a negative mindset.
Over time, I’ve learned that getting upset over things I can’t control is a waste of time and energy.
I can’t control what the weather or traffic is like that day. So instead of being negative towards the situation, I don’t react to it or I keep my mind on something that is positive.
There are definitely situations every so often that will get me upset at times. I just remember that it’s not that big of a deal, brush it off, and keep going.
What’s Your Energy?
“Where your attention goes, energy flows and results show.”
Think about this quote for a minute.
Where we put our energy towards, our energy will flow to, and the result of that will either be amazing or highly unsatisfying.
This is a direct result of having a positive or negative mindset.
Have a negative mindset for the day? Your attention will be towards everything negative, and the work you do for that day will be subpar.
If you have a positive mindset however, your energy will be great and the results will definitely show in that.
I’m a very positive person and I use to let little things destroy my mood for the day. I can tell you that my work took a dip when I was focusing my attention on something negative.
Overtime, I got good at noticing the energy I was giving off and changed my attitude to be positive.
Watch what kind of energy you give out and see how it impacts your work and who associates with you. If you want positive people in your life, be positive.
We all have an opportunity to be positive and create something amazing everyday.
Be so positive that other people think you might be on something.
Thanks and Be Great,
