A good day to be thankful and positive
The best motivation is self motivation. – Jim Rohn
Every once in a while, we hit a brick wall. And more often than not, we lose the motivation to keep going.
Well, the key is to stay positive by thinking of positive things. How do we do that? Here are some tips:
- Be grateful
Be grateful for the things that you have. Focusing on what exists will make you feel fulfilled. Be grateful to be given another day to be alive. Be thankful that you have parents who love you unconditionally. Be comforted by the fact that you have a loved one to say ‘I love you’ to and back. And remember that someone, somewhere, may not be as privileged to have what you have.
- Gratitude list
Before the day comes to an end, write a list of things you are grateful for. Write down good things that had happened. Write down your achievements no matter how big or small. Write down moments that made you feel proud even if it was for a second. Make this list and experience going to bed with a smile on your face.
- Be around positive people
When you are feeling down, get up and be with positive people. If you happen to be around people who complain and whine a lot, walk away immediately. These people will not help lift your mood. Find people who are optimistic and hopeful. Their energy will make you feel like no problem is too hard to handle.
There you go. Quick and easy ways to get back on the saddle.
