How To Adopt Positive Attitude During Your Work Times

11 Effective Ways



“Having a positive mental attitude is asking how something can be done rather than saying it can’t be done.”

One of the first things I started to work consciously with my own personal development was to improve my vision of life.

It is more than 10 years since I began to deepen this subject and gradually build an optimistic perspective.

An attitude that, over time, would become more and more stable, so that I could not only look at the world in a positive way during the good days. But also to be able to stay positive and constructive even during difficult times and continue to work for something better.

In this article, I would like to share 11 of the most effective, smart, and effective habits I've learned in over a decade.

I hope you find something useful here.

1. Find the optimistic point of view in a negative situation.

In my experience, one of the simplest but most effective ways of creating a more positive attitude has been to ask more useful questions as often as possible.

When I find myself in a situation that seems negative to me (maybe I was lazy, wrong, failed, or stumbled), I like to ask myself questions as:

What is positive or positive in this situation?
What is an opportunity in this situation?
This is much better than what I was doing in such situations. Because at that time, I usually wondered how much I had sucked and how things could get even worse now.

However, I do not always use these questions right away.

Often, I need a little time to deal with thoughts and feelings in the situation before I can do it.

Trying to force optimistic thinking when you are still in an emotional turmoil or a little shocked does not usually work as well.

2. Cultivate and live in a positive environment.

The people with whom you choose to spend your time and the contributions you get more and more distant, such as TV, the Internet, and magazines, will have a huge impact on your prospects.

To stay positive, it is essential to have influences in your life that support and lift you instead of training.

So, think carefully about what you have left in your mind.

For example, you may ask:

Who are the 3 most negative people I spend time with?
What are the 3 most negative sources of information I spend time on?
Consider the answers. Then think about how you can start spending less time with one of these people or sources of information this week.

And how you can spend more time than you have released with one of the sources or the most positive people in your life.

3. Go slowly.

I found that when I went too fast when I tried to think, to talk, to eat and to move very quickly in my world, things did not go very well.

The stress accumulates. Negative thoughts on just about anything begin to rise and I feel that my personal power is diminishing.

But if I only slow down for a few minutes - even if I have to force it by walking, talking, and eating slower - my mind and body also calms down. It becomes easier to rethink things clearly and to find an optimistic and constructive perspective.

4. Do not make a mountain a molehill.

It is very easy to lose perspective, especially if you are stressed and you are going too fast.

And so a molehill can become a big and terrifying mountain in your mind.

A simple three-step way to manage these situations so that they do not become out of control is to:

Say stop. In your mind, shout "STOP!" Or "NOPE, we will not follow this path!" As soon as such thoughts begin to turn in your head.
Breathe. After disturbing thoughts by shouting, stop and stay still. Breathe with your belly and focus only on your inspirations and inspirations for a minute or two to calm your mind and body.
Recenter. Question your thoughts on building the mountain by talking with someone close to you and get a more realistic perspective on the situation by letting go or getting your opinion. Or simply, ask yourself this to expand your perspective and relax: will that matter in 5 years? Or even for 5 weeks?
5. Do not let vague fears stop you from doing what you want.

Sometimes you may want to try your luck in life. Start a new habit that does not seem familiar to you, put your own business aside or ask someone to go out with him.

One of the most common pitfalls when you want to do any of these things is to get lost in vague fears and to know what might happen if you actually act.

Thus, the mind is unleashed, fueled by fear, which creates nightmarish scenarios and doubts about itself.

I know. I've been there many times.

So I learned to ask myself the following question: honestly, what is the worst that can happen?

When I understand that, I also spend a little bit of time trying to figure out what I could do if it happened often, a pretty unlikely thing.

Over the years, I have discovered that the worst thing that can realistically happen is not usually as frightening as the nightmare that my fear-fed mind could produce.

Finding clarity in this way does not take a lot of time or effort and can help you avoid a lot of suffering caused by the mind. And help you get out there, get out of your comfort zone and grab that chance.

6. Add value and positivity to someone else's life.

What you send tends to come back from the world and its inhabitants.

Not everyone. And not every time.

But what you send is very important.

What you give them and how you treat them is what you will recover. And their treatment of others and their way of thinking also have a big impact on how you treat yourself and think about yourself.

So give some value and spread the positivity for example:

Helping. Give a hand when you move. Give a friend a ride in your car. If he needs information, help him by visiting Google or asking a friend. Or start a blog or podcast and share what has helped you in life.
Just listen. Sometimes people do not want direct help. They just want someone to be there and listen as they escape a bit.
Stimulate the atmosphere. Smile. Give hugs, if any. Play uplifting music when you spend time with a friend or suggest an inspiring for your movie night. Or encourage when someone has had a bad day or is going through a difficult time.
7. Exercise regularly, eat and sleep well.

This is very obvious of course.

But I know that a significant impact of a good night's sleep or a good workout can have a big impact when my thoughts are pessimistic and I have a lot of tension inside.

And I know how much easier it is to think clearly and optimistically when my belly is not empty.

I therefore strongly recommend paying attention to these basic habits that may seem boring. Because they have a huge effect, in any case, depending on how you manage them.
