It’s said how we view ourselves, our life and others is a true reflection of our way of thinking.
Have you ever been around people who just make you feel great? They wear a constant smile, carry themselves with pride and seem to have this positive energy about them. You find yourself ponder how they do it, question why they are always so happy, and wish you could be more like them.
It’s comes down to positive thinking, the way you view life in general.
Follow these five tips and soon you’ll find yourself feeling great, loving life, being full of energy, and have people around you asking and wondering what makes you so happy. Of coarse if you rather be grumpy, feel discontent, and enjoy never feeling the need to smile, then there is no need for you to continue reading.
Optimism: Is you glass half full or half empty? Sounds like a rather simple question, but pending how you answered it, you’re either an optimist or a pessimist. You know the glass is half full because it’s the positive answer, the optimistic way of thinking. When attending a meeting at work, instead of dreading it, don’t be afraid of share your great ideas during the discussion, realize this meeting is a time for productivity and moving forward.
Compassion: Feeling a deep compassion for others and their situations; having a need, feeling, or motivation for wanting to help other people and make a difference in their life. Volunteering your time, helping the homeless, donating items you no longer need or use, lending a helping hand to friend’s, and strangers are all examples of compassion. No matter how small you may think this, it’s usually the small things that make a huge, positive impact in other’s lives.
Awe: It’s hard to really define this, but basically its feeling admiration or greatness towards people, living things, or beliefs that creates a sense of awe. Perhaps you look up to someone and really admire them for something they do or something they said; you rescued an animal from a potential dangerous situation; you take in the beauty of a sunrise or sunset – these all create a sense of ‘awe’ and bring about positive feeling and thinking.
Gratitude: Being grateful and feeling thankful for the things in your life. When you wake up in the morning or before you go to bed, do you think about what you are thankful for? Do you send out gratitude? No matter how your day ended, or how awful a situation may seem, try to find something positive that took place. Whether it be a compliment you received, a smile someone gave you, or simply how warm the sun felt on your face and the beauty of nature. When we feel gratitude, when we send out positive thoughts, good things and feelings fill our heart and our universe.
Self Compassion: How you judge and present yourself, whether you do kind and thoughtful things for yourself all display self-compassion. To love and be kind to others begins with loving and being kind to yourself. Look at yourself in the mirror and physically love at least one part – your eyes, your hands, your legs are just some examples.
