Optimistic Mindset: How to Built It
If you were to ask most of the people out there if they believe in being positive and calm no matter what situation the life throws them into they’d probably say against it. Yet that’s not necessarily what they truly think. It’s just the way they fend for themselves against what they want. They believe in it but pretend they don’t until they’re allowed to. Most people would throw away their cynicism if they could. The majority just never get the chance. In this optimistic mindset essay we will have a brief look at this concept and how anyone can develop it in himself.
Being optimistic is an outlook, a way to view circumstances, troubles and other states of affairs positively, a way that would over time become more and more stable. There may be a thousand reasons why someone might not be able to accomplish a task. But an optimistic person would find that one reason to do the task amongst those thousand reasons of not doing it.
It’s natural to lose hope in challenging situations. When the situation is bad to a fault we often leave it for fate to decide. This is where your positivity comes into the picture. A convinced person will not lose hope and would continue to think and expect positive results until the end.
I have had many experiences and what I have learnt from them is that it is not bound to happen that a positive attitude will always give you the desired result. You will not always get what you expected and that is all right. The main catch lies in the fact that you have to carry on to stay positive despite the negative outcomes.
This is a practice that needs to be worked on consciously for the sake of your personal development. Here are a few effective habits for doing so:
- Find opportunities within every kind of situations and in the process of tumbling backwards build a better outlook towards the same;
- Cultivate and live in a positive social surrounding to make sure you have influences on you that support you and lift you instead of dragging down;
- Stop.Breathe.Refocus -losing perspective in a stressed situation is easy and can lead to unwanted conclusions;
- Step outside your comfort zone and take a chance at adding value or positivity to someone else’s life;
- Overcome the fear of criticism.
In conclusion, with issues like relationship troubles, friendship problems, family matters, self-related doubts and career issues positivity has been made to be assumed hard to maintain but it is not. And being an optimistic person has its incentives in life. For instance, optimists have a longer life span along with better work performance in their respective fields. So why not look at the bigger picture and improve your life?
