I characterize myself as a positive person. I also characterize myself as a happy person. Sure, I have my moments and my dark days. I don’t get angry easily, but when I do, you’ll know.
My outlook on life is “I’m so blessed to be living now, and life is short so I don’t want to waste a single moment of it.”
I’m a very easy-going person and I have simple needs. I have a roof over my head, electricity in my home, food in the fridge, clothes to wear, a car to get around, and a career, family, and friends that I love.
I think this is why I’m so positive. I’m not in competition to have the biggest home on the block, the biggest necklace around my neck, or the fanciest car. I do like nice things and I have nice things, but I work very hard for them. I view my luxury items as rewards and not needs. There is nothing wrong with viewing luxury items as needs, if you choose to do so.
I think a lot of us lose our positivity because we focus on the negative. We focus on what we don’t have, instead of what we do have. We see that someone has this (whatever this is) and we want it, but we may not be able to get it so we feel like a failure. This drains our positivity. We live in a society that focuses on celebrity culture, and we want what they have. We also live in a society where the thought is “bigger is better” so we want the biggest of everything. We lose sight of the wonderful things that we do have.
I work with a lot of my clients on breaking the cycle of comparing themselves to others. I’ll admit it’s a hard cycle to break and it takes work; however, my clients do see the great results when they do this. My clients gain a sense of freedom. My clients find themselves. My clients become more positive people.
I have always been a very independent person. For those of you into astrology, I’m an Aquarius, so that may explain things. I have always thought for myself and made my own decisions. I stop myself when I find that I am comparing myself to someone else. There is motivation in emulating someone else. But I’m not talking about emulation, I’m talking about comparison and comparison can lead you down a very bad path.
You can become a more positive person. Positive people are happy people.
Do you want to become a more positive person?
Let me share some tips:
- Make a list of your most basic needs
- Take an inventory of the things you do have
- See if what you have aligns with your most basic needs
- Don’t focus on the negative
- Break the cycle of comparing yourself to others
- Don’t buy in to celebrity culture or the belief that “bigger is better”
- Think for yourself
- Do something you enjoy, such as yoga or a bike ride
- Love the person that you are and be confident in your skin
- Believe that you are a positive person.
By being a positive person, you will achieve more and be happier. Positive attracts positive and negative attracts negative. If you want a happy life, be positive, and you’ll attract positivity.
