“Keep your face to the sunshine, and you cannot see a shadow.” -Helen Keller
We have read over and over again that positivity wins over negativity. We hear the same thing every single day, too. Is it true? Does it make a difference?
It sure does, and we will give you three reasons.
- It is good for your success.
It sure is. We go through a lot of struggles in life and most of them not meant for the faint of hearts. However, you see failure as a learning curve, roadblock as a sign to regroup, hurdles as signs to test your strength. When you see the upside in everything you do, even when it doesn’t look advantageous to your situation, you give yourself room to grow, to hone your craft, to learn. That is why thinking and looking at things positively is good for your success.
- It is good for your health.
Absolutely. When you are not dwelling on what did not work well, you focus on the things you need to get done. You sleep well at night and wake up in the morning ready to kick butt like you have never done before. You don’t worry about things you cannot control and focus your mind and energy on things you can, instead.
- Overall, it makes your life a whole lot better.
Definitely. The world is a good place to be. You have a positive outlook; you appreciate the little things, rejoice in your tiny victories. You have love in your heart, peace of mind and a sense of purpose. You know where you are going and even though you are aware that it may take some time to get there, you are patient about it. After all, you will definitely get there at the right moment. Meanwhile, you are living your life to the fullest. Most of all, no negativity will dampen your spirit or touch your positive and happy life.
Tell us, how positively positive are you? How do you deal with negativity?
