The Secret To staying Positive - July 8th 2012, 03:11 PM

In many ways, we're alike; however, one little difference almost always makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude.
William James, over a century ago, said, "The greatest discovery of this generation is that a human being can alter their life by altering their attitude." I believe this with all my heart, and over the years have seen it happen countless times. What most people fail to realize is that your attitude not only impacts your happiness and your success, it also can impact the happiness and success of all the people around you...your family, your friends, and your peers at work. Attitudes truly are contagious, and from time to time we need to ask ourselves..."is mine worth catching?"
There is no way to overstate the importance of a positive attitude in your life. However, no one can underestimate the difficulty in maintaining it. It's not easy, and it's a very personal thing, but it can be done. I only can share with you what works for me in developing and maintaining a positive approach to life:
Manage your energy levels
Keep your soul alive
Take new paths
Reduce stress
Develop the "Human Touch"
Attack your fears
Live in awe
Savor small successes
Burn brightly without burning out
Hang on when the storms blow through

Most importantly, I'd ask you to keep this list in handy, so whenever you feel a little down, pick it up and read it through. I guarantee it will make you feel better for the journey ahead. =)

Take care <3
Kelly

This makes sense, but could you go into some more detail on some of the things on your list? How do you keep your soul alive? And when you mention burning brightly without burning out, how do you personally stop from burning out?

Staying positive is probably the most important goal to have.

I like it too, but I'm with Hester. Could you please elaborate a bit more of some of the things?

Keeping your soul alive would be like doing things that makes you happy on your own. & burning brightly without burning out means keeeping your spirits up no matter which way life takes you Anything else?

Thank you for posting this, Kelly! Such wonderful inspiration. <3



So dance if it moves you,
and jump in the fire, if it burns you.
I'll throw my arms around you darlin',
and we'll turn to ashes.

Kinda like the way you tell me,
"Baby, please come home. I need you here right now.
I'm crying underwater so you don't hear the sound."


What if I can't forget you?
I'll burn your name into my throat.
I'll be the fire that'll catch you.
What's so good about picking up the pieces?
