Please share what specific activities keep that positive mindset active?
Here are some thoughts that come to mind for me:
- Develop a winning attitude. You may have failed many times before... but if you Look at failure as a LESSON rather than a LOSS, you have gained more experience towards success.
- See the positive in everything. This can be a challenge... I had cancer a few years back and it was hard to see positive it that, but I now see cancer as a life-changing experience. It removed me from a very stressful job and into a life where I can spend a whole lot more time with my family and kids and not deal with that stressful job I once had with no family life.
- Sow positive seeds... Positive thoughts and deeds are the seeds... positive outcomes.... are the fruits of our labor.
- Take responsibility. Growing old is inevitable... growing up is a choice. Even if our parents were negative, let's not blame them, but understand that we can proceed along the path that we have been accustomed to, or we can choose an entirely new one. Take charge of your life... and make it as good and wonderful as you would like it to be... Ralph Waldo Emerson once said. Life is neither good nor bad... but thinking makes it so... (Shakespeare used similar lines) Maybe there is truth in the sayings of these great minds.
