When it comes to attitude and the power of positivity, there are basically two paths you can take in life.
And which one you choose has a lot to do with health, wealth, and happiness.
Now, don’t get me wrong.
I know the trip through life can sometimes take you down a rough and rocky road, one that’s filled with obstacles, strife, and disappointments. This is true for everyone, no one is exempted.
It’s how you approach these rough patches that make you who you are and ultimately shape your life and the lives of those around you.
Have you ever been around someone who is constantly seeing the dark side of every situation?
Seriously, it’s like all doom and gloom 24/7, no matter what the circumstances.
Or is that, perhaps, you?
I hope not, because those kinds of people are a real drag to be around.
And there are some serious health consequences associated with a Negative Nellie attitude.
Just check out the list below
Experts have long-believed that the power of positive thinking extends way beyond feeling like you’re having a good day.
Many people confuse optimism and positivity, and they are not the same thing at all.
Let’s take a look.
Optimism is a trait of positive people, and a sign of positivity, but it’s not really a type of person, in my opinion.
I know plenty of optimistic people that still approach life from a negative standpoint. Let me give you an example.
Let’s say you’re looking for a relationship and trying all the normal routes, but still not finding anyone suitable. You can remain optimistic but at the same time have negative thoughts take over your life, especially if you’ve been looking for a long time.
Optimism is a great quality and something you should strive for, but it’s only one part of the equation of being a positive person.
Positive, upbeat people are a joy to be around. They elevate everyone’s mood and create an atmosphere that’s warm and inviting.
Negative people never lift their chin off the ground and drag everyone else around them down to their level. They seem content in their pessimism and thrive on finding dark clouds on even the brightest day.
Positive people solve problems more quickly and effectively, are more gracious and accepting, and approach their life from a position of gratitude.
Negative people are lost in past relationships that didn’t go well, blame others for their mistakes and troubles, and are stuck in the same rut forever because they fear failure or embarrassment.
It’s your choice.
Which would you rather be?
That’s what I thought!
Now go out and make some lemonade!!
