Being positive is something that comes naturally to me, even when I’m up against it my glass is always half full! There is always light at the end of the tunnel and where there is light there is a way! Yes I know what you’re thinking it should be “where there’s a will there is a way” and of course you would be right – however I like my quote too! Being positive opens so many avenues it makes all the hard stuff so much easier to think about – for instance if your having a bad day, maybe you have missed the train and its raining, you don’t have an umbrella so you are soaked through, most people instantly feel grumpy and irritated and will probably be a bit off with their work colleagues when they finally arrive at work. Once they have logged there phone on and received there first call of the day, the poor person on the other end will more than likely receive a bad reception as a result of your bad morning (not their fault!) … which will only encourage more negativity for you as the day goes – like dominoes effect. However if you received the events of your morning differently – you will get wet anyway, the train has left without you – a bad mood will not bring it back … but you still have control over your day. How you choose the rest of it to unfold is entirely dependent on whether you allow that morning to switch your mindset to negative mode.
So I conclude – its far easier to be positive – it makes for a better day, a better reception from everyone around you, and most definitely more productive no matter what you have planned. And then there’s that old cliché “life’s just too short” … this is so very true! So why waste your time being negative? It takes up too much time and energy leaving you (and others around you) feeling down and angry.
