Life is a journey and a test for everyone. We have to go through different paths on this journey. When face challenges, we get the negative thoughts and plan to quit. Because we always look for the small hills ahead of us and forget the mountain behind us, which were difficult to climb. Be strong, compassionate, humble and unique. Even when you are not sure about the success, keep telling yourself that things will work out. The positive attitude and optimism will change your life.
“Adopting a really positive attitude can work wonders to adding years to your life, a spring to your step, a sparkle to your eye, and all of that.” Christie Brinkley
Positive Attitude And Optimism
Life is all about fun and learning
Be sincere, honest and loyal to work
Shift your motivation from receiving to giving. Help others in their need. Helping doesn’t mean just with money, but you can help others by sharing knowledge, helping in work etc.
Be thankful to people you depend on and who help you. It gives them happiness and motivation to help others.
Set and focus on the goal. Break your goal into smaller parts. Visualise yourself achieving success. Never quit until you achieve success.
A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results. Wade Boggs

Watch this beautiful video clarifying 2 simple tips to have a perfect attitude. If you have any difficulty in watching the video, you can read the transcript below.
There was a man who used to earn money by selling different colours balloon daily. Whenever his sale used to go down, he leaves some balloon in the sky and children used to get excited after seeing that balloon in the sky and they immediately used to visit that man to buy one such balloon because of which his sale used to grow once again.
One day a boy asked him that if he will leave a BLACK colour balloon in the sky, will it flew? That man smiled at that boy and said it’s not the colour of the balloon but it is what’s inside that makes it go up.
These same principles are applied to our life also. Our ability, attitude and motivation always help us to move ahead in life.
Ability teaches us that How We DO, Motivation teaches us that Why We Do, but it’s our Attitude that decides How Well We DO.
YOUR ATTITUDE CONTRIBUTES TO SUCCESS
We all know the power of POSITIVE THINKING but very few people understand the power of NEGATIVE THINKING.
Yes…this both things are powerful but in opposite way.
Positive thinking encourages a person to touch new heights of success, on the other hand, Negative thinking is the reason behind self-destruction.
Once in a village, there came a very big Monster and everyone in the village was having fear about that monster. A child asked the village people that why they don’t kill that monster? Village people said that can’t he see how huge it is? The child said No…He is just big to miss. That child threw a big stone on that monster head and killed him
Moral One Giant but different Perception
Our attitude decide that how we face the problem
For positive thinking people, the problem is like a big opportunity for them whereas, for a negative thinking people, the problem is like a big obstacle for them.
FACTORS THAT DETERMINE OUR ATTITUDE
Attitude starts forming in us from the childhood itself. There are 3 E’s factor that largely determines our attitude formation.
First is the ENVIRONMENT
The environment consists of many things. Like the environment at home, school environment, an office environment or political environment, all different types of environment creates a culture
You went to a shop and got a very good service there. You went to another shop but there you were treated very badly. The reason behind this is a different culture. Culture determines our environment which indirectly decides our attitude.
Second is EXPERIENCE
A positive experience with a person attracts us towards them while negative experience keeps us away from them.
Experience or events act as guidelines for the future.
You teach your children that telling lie is a bad habit, on the other side, you speak like on phone just to make an excuse. At this stage, children get confused between what they learned and what they experienced and ultimately they decide their conclusion on the basis of their experience.
Third is EDUCATION
It refers to both formal and informal education. We convert our education into knowledge, experience and wisdom in form of attitude which transforms it into success.
There are many benefits of Positive Attitude
like..you get a meaning for your life, you start inspiring yourself and others also, there is an increase in business and profit, you solve many problems by taking a positive decision.
In short, it reduces stress and improves quality, on the other side, there are many consequences of a negative attitude. Negative thinking people live a purposeless life neither they are satisfied with anything whether it is friendship, job, marriage or relationship. Moreover, the level of frustration, rudeness and stress increase continuously in their life. Many time they want to remove such things from their life but their negative attitude resists them from doing so.
A man was sentenced 15 years of imprisonment. After completing 15 years in jail, he was free to go. But he started feeling uncomfortable within few hours after leaving the jail because he had adapted the habit of living in jail. That’s why he committed one more big crime again so that he can live in jail forever.
Sometimes we become so comfortable with our negativity that we don’t change despite knowing that its good for us.
STEP TO GAIN POSITIVE ATTITUDE
1)CHANGE FOCUS, LOOK FOR THE POSITIVE
Many time people always find that thing that they are looking for that’s why we should search positive instead of negative in others.
ANDREW CARNEGIE was the richest man in the USA and one of the largest steel manufacturer in the world having a net worth of 310 billion dollars. Once he was asked that how he deal with people. Andrew said that dealing with people is like searching for gold. We have to separate dust and mud while searching for gold. Similarly, while searching for positive thing in a person, first we have to avoid negative thing about that person.
ANDREW CARNEGIE message was clear that change focus and look for the positive.
2)MAKE A HABIT OF DOING IT NOW
I have procrastinated many things in life which I regret today also. Procrastination leads to a negative attitude which results into delay and regret.
When a person is small, he thinks that he will be happy when he will grow.
When he grow and become a boy, he thinks that he will be happy when he studies.
When his studies will get over, he thinks he will be happy when he will get a job.
When he gets the job, he thinks he will be happy when he will get married.
When he gets married, he thinks that he will be happy after having his own family.
When he makes his own family, he thinks that after retirement he will be always happy.
And when get retired from the job, he finds that time has gone and its too late now to be happy and enjoy life.
Some people procrastinate by saying that they are analyzing or getting ready for the future, but even after six months, they are still analyzing or getting ready.
If you want to develop a positive attitude then stop procrastination and make a habit of doing it now.
So to conclude…
WINNING is like an event, but being a winner is a spirit.
Inculcate “YES YOU CAN” spirit in yourself by developing a positive attitude.
Always remember one thing Winners don’t do different think..they do think differently
