Being positive is not a statement. Being positive is a mind-set.
So many people talk with me about motivation, positive thinking, and accomplishing dreams, but few really understand that being energized and positive is a mind-set, not a statement. Often people will tell me that they are “trying to stay positive,” or “think positive.” Sure the concept of pushing towards the positive is, well, positive; however it is not the same as actually changing your life with a positive mind-set.
You can’t fake mind-set and you can’t, “fake it to make it,” when it comes to being positive. A focus on past negative experiences, dreading some upcoming event or activity, or chronically discussing everything that is wrong in the world with anyone who will listen is not a positive mind-set.
Not feeling particularly positive?
Listen to yourself.
