Keeping a positive attitude outlook is a matter of deciding so. You can always choose how to look at life and your circumstances at any moment.
It is the same as looking at any person. Everybody has good and bad qualities. You can look at someone and pay attention to either the good or the bad qualities.
Simply put, you can look at life and say "It's difficult and horrible" or you can say "It's easy and great". Yes, perhaps you do have difficult circumstances to deal with - but there are always blessings to count too.
Having a positive attitude outlook is beneficial for all areas of your life.
A positive attitude brings about success, helps to create and maintain good relationships, promotes creative thinking, aids inspiration and motivation, boosts self-esteem and confidence, helps to a balanced state of mind, brings calmness and even help you to create positive habits.
The bottom line is that whatever you choose to believe will shape your reality accordingly.
For example, if you believe that people are out to take advantage of you, that will make your life much more difficult than if you choose to believe that people are simply human beings, just like you, who want to have pleasure and avoid pain, just like you.
At a very simple level, believing that people will take advantage of you will already put you in a distrusting mode when dealing with anybody - and such mode won't be conducive to creating easy relationships.
This in turn will create a reality that will make you right in believing that people are to be distrusted.
Our thoughts become beliefs over time. You can choose to create your own beliefs by changing the focus of your thoughts consistently and paying attention to the aspects of your life that are easy already.
How would you feel daily with a positive attitude and the belief that good things are coming your way and people are there to help you?
Sometimes we cling on to past negative experiences or negative beliefs and avoid a positive attitude outlook. We do that out of a lack of knowledge about how to change how we feel or how we look at life.
