Throughout life, and on this journey, I have been up and I have been down. I have been elated and I have been dejected; I have felt the highs and I have endured the lows.
That is part of life and you cannot really appreciate the joys of the high and great parts of your life without knowing the pain of the lowest of the lows.
While it is not practical (or healthy) to be so joyously delighted and uber-postive all the time (though, if there is a mental health condition that may be desirable, that would be it) it is important to keep a positive outlook . . . generally.
Shake off the bad times and the times that you have been down, and move on towards being and staying positive.
For you will not move forward without hope, and without a positive outlook. You need to have hope for the future and a belief that things will get better.
Blind dedication and trudgery are also very helpful when it comes to staying on the path to success, as they can help you through the lows, keep you moving forward when you lose hope.
With a positive attitude, you can weather the minor inconveniences or just irritations that come with being alive and take them in stride.
With a negative outlook, every little thing that goes wrong is some sort of “omen” of how bad things are and how horribly your life sucks.
Given the choice, which of those mindsets would you choose? Exactly, so choose to be positive and do whatever you have to (affirmations and all that) to get and keep your outlook positive.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
