6 Positives of Possessing a Positive Attitude
The world around us could be dark and cold, or it could be warm and bright. It all depends on the way you look at things and your attitude in general.
Here are 6 Positives of Possessing a Positive Attitude.
1. People Will Like You More
A person with a positive outgoing demeanor is something most people find approachable, nice and friendly. It is on that reasoning that having a positive attitude will get you more friends, make your current friends find you more enjoyable to be around, and also earn the respect of the other people around you.
2. Good Things Happen To Positive People
Positivity is like a magnet, be positive and positive things will happen to you. This is called the law of attraction. It is caused by our behaviors being affected subconsciously by our attitude. If you keep telling yourself, "Something bad is going to happen", and you feel scared, eventually that fear, that negativity will lead you to a choice in which you yourself cause the bad thing to happen. The opposite holds true as well, think positive and eventually something good will happen to you.
3. Be Healthier
Surprisingly, having a positive attitude can really help with your health. Stress, a major cause of many illnesses, is drastically reduced by having a positive attitude. Merely believing that everything will turn out well, that somehow you will pull through, instead of feeling rushed, you push through with minimal stress. Also, you get a better night sleep with a positive attitude as you have less regrets and less lingering thoughts. Less stress, better sleep equals good health.
4. Succeed More
People with positive attitudes achieve more than people with negative attitudes. The reason is their way of thinking, people with positive attitude are rarely daunted by a task, and they trudge on despite the difficulty. On the other hand, negative people give up easily with excuses like "it's too hard" or "this task is unfair". People with positive attitudes will also succeed more because they will stick to the task even if a problem makes itself known and they don't give up, and eventually they solve the problem and succeed in the task. The next time you find yourself in a similar situation, just remember, be positive.
5. Be More Content
Things will happen, you could trip up in front of your longtime crush, you could get your suit splattered on with mud before a big presentation. Things like that will happen in your life, the only difference is how you perceive it and how you react to it. Being positive, you must move on in face of adversity and instead, focus on what you do have, the positives of the situation as they are always there. If you dwell on the positives, you will recover more quickly from the negative thing that happened to you.
6. You'll be Happier
The best effect of having a positive attitude is your own personal happiness, which in the end, is all that really matters. By having a positive attitude, you can smile through anything that comes your way, you can believe that everything will be alright and it probably will be. You can find joy in the smallest of things and in the darkest of circumstances. You will be stronger and live longer because you are happy, content with your life, and smiling, knowing it all happened because you had a positive attitude.
Having a positive attitude is a journey, it starts with you. Understanding these benefits may be key to you starting to develop a positive attitude. Have a nice day and remember. Be positive.
