On Your Way To Building A Positive Attitude

Building a positive attitude is a matter of a day-to-day experience. Having a positive attitude doesn't happen overnight, but it keeps growing as you make a point of maintaining a positive attitude daily.

Useful tips for building a positive attitude

  • Take one step at a time. If you want to exercise, be more calm, and eat healthy, all at the same time, you may find yourself quickly overwhelmed, see no progress in any of those areas and become discouraged.

    It is better to choose just one thing that you want to build a positive attitude on at a time, and work on it.

    You may want to make it one of your positive habits. Keep track of your improvements so that you can compare where you stand today and where you stood a month ago or a year ago.

    When you are comfortable with the area of your life where you chose to make a difference, move on and start building a positive attitude on another area.

  • Watch your words. When you find yourself saying or thinking "I don't like that", "I hate this", change those words for positive statements.

    It is very easy! You know what you don't want, so you can then easily know what you do want. Focus on what you do want, and play the game of 'Wouldn't it be nice if...?' (as explained by Abraham-Hicks) imagining your preferred scenario.

  • Find a role model on a strong person with a positive attitude. When I was a student, I had a good friend as a role model, because she kept the most optimistic attitude to anything that life threw her way.

    I have always admired the painter Frida Kahlo for her strength to go on with life and become a great artist despite severe back problems, emotional setbacks and miscarriages.

    The advantage of having a role model is that you can find inspiration in them, and when faced with difficult circumstances you can ask yourself, "What would this person do?"

  • Accept what you feel to be able to move on. Full acceptance of your state is the first step for calm when you feel upset, angry, nervous or negative in any way.

    Getting upset with yourself because of not having a positive attitude will not help you to feel positive. Instead, when you fully accept what you feel you open the door for a better state of being.

The show must go on

The key for building a positive attitude is to always go on, no matter what. It is not easy at times, but being firm when life comes tough helps you to build a resilient positive attitude.

As in Queen's song "The show must go on":

"Inside my heart is breaking
my make-up may be flaking
but my smile
still stays on."

The Holosync soundtracks can help you to build a positive attitude by making you more aware of your own thought patterns and behaviours, so that you are able more and more to choose your response, rather than running on autopilot. Read a review of Holosync here.

"Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit."
