”Your life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.”
I think no one is born with positivity and of course life is not a bed of roses.Actually different experiences of your life are responsible for your overall psyche.If you have seen much bad situations in your life or may be around you,it leaves a negative impact on your mind and with the passage of time unconsciously you become a negative person.
Your mind is a really powerful thing,whatever you feed it,your mind will magnify those feelings and make you believe that.The solution to this is that train your mind and don’t let a negative situation overtake you.It’s not easy or a single day process but it’s not impossible too.If you try it you will definitely master the art of being a positive person.
Discussed below are some of the best tips to become a positive person and remain positive in any situation.
#1 Recognize and Remove the negative thoughts;
This is the very important step because negative thoughts almost all the time conquer the positive ones(if you let them).With the negative thoughts in your brain you can never be positive.It is necessary to recognize that you are being negative,we often don’t realize that we are so negative.So whenever a negative thought arises in your brain stop it right there and replace it by a positive one.
#2 Avoid negative surrounding;
Are you surrounded by negative people,stop thinking about being positive.But do you really want to become positive?Get rid of these negative people.Our friends and people around us have a very deep impact on us.DO YOU KNOW
“We are the average of those five people with whom we spend most of our time.”
Who are those five people in your life.Are they positive or negative.Whatever they are they are affecting you either in a positive or a negative way.Choice is yours.We learn from each other so try to surround yourself with positive people.
Respect yourself by limiting access to people who are negative.
#3 See what’s blessing and not what’s depressing;
Every coin has two sides.Every situation also has two sides,one that is depressing and the other that is some how a blessing.Up to you that what you want to see.Interesting in being positive,Alright,stop looking at the negative aspects of a situation and try out figure out any thing positive even in the worst situation.
You encountered an accident and your car is badly damaged and you are very sad.But wait you still have a reason to be positive,because you are alive and safe.
So thankfulness is another way to stay positive.
It was just an example to explain you but learn to see that blessing in disguise in every situation.
#4 No entry for sadness in your heart
SO who don’t have problems in life,probably no one.Some problems in life leaves a very sad impact on life.A problem begins to demolish you when you become weaker than the problem.But when you don’t allow the problem to overtake you,no problem will demolish your zest and positivity.Built a fort of positivity around your heart and remember there is no entry for negativity,stress and sadness.That’s so imaginative I know but FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT :).
Do’t let any situation effect you.Be strong,be a fighter,trust god because you know that a bad situation won’t last forever because every cloud has a silver lining.
You are never put in a situation that you can’t bear.Just remember your good times in a bad situation,it will give you courage to fight it.Problems are not forever and time is magical you will forget the pain you went through with the passage of time when the things get better.But if let problems takeover you and you are not hopeful and positive during that period then they can have a long time effect on you including your physical and mental health.
#5 Create a source of positivity;
You won’t be able to remain positive for a long time if you don’t have a source to keep you so.The source can be anything.It may be someone in your family or a friend or may be as small as a quote.Yes just a quote can also help you stay positive.

#6 Stop focusing on your weakness;
Focusing on your weakness will never let you have a positive mind.Positive state of mind is also achieved when you accept yourself the way you are and you don’t try to change the things that are not in your hand but you work hard to change the things that you can.Since we have two aspects of our life;one that we can change(by the hard work and passion of course) and the other one that you cannot change(including your back ground,appearance etc etc).There is a huge list of weakness that keep bothering us.It attacks our positivity and confidence and is a hurdle in any thing positive that we think to do.So no more focus on weakness now your focus should be on your uniqueness and abilities that can help you achieve your dream life.

And last but definitely not the least.Have a healthy lifestyle because you can never be mentally healthy unless you physically are.If you don’t sleep early on time your body does not repair even then if you sleep for 10 hours.So make sure you have a sound sleep at night and on time.Having a sound proper sleep helps a person to stay stress free.Studies have shown that having a diet with lots of fruits and vegetable have a really positive impact on your mental health.And that drinking lots of water reduces stress.So Eat well,sleep well.Stay happy.Stay blessed and love yourself.
