Daily Challenge – Be Optimistic
Not a very optimistic person? There’s no better day to turn it around then today.
How to Find More Inspiration for Optimism
- Look for the silver lining: I know I know, it is a little cliche but it really is so true. It’s hard when you’re right in the middle of a situation, but take a few minutes to mentally step back from the situations and see if there is just one area that could be seen as positive.
- Positive Friends: choose to spend time with the most positive people you know. If you don’t know any, time to step up and find some—it will be fun!
- Look for inspiration: there are several ways you can surround yourself with inspiration, such as spending time with smiling babies, or reading inspirational books, affirmations and quotes.
- Be Grateful: there is always something you can be grateful for, so acknowledge it, say it out loud. My favorite is “thank you for my breath”
The more you are aware of your negative reactions, the more frequently you change to more positive thinking, and the more you look to surround yourself with inspiration, the more optimistic your life will be. Once you are in this more positive frame of mind, the easier it is to make the decision to live a fuller life—one with more fun, more joy, more excitement, and more adventure.
