Are you the type of person that believes in the glass being half full or half empty?
Do you see the bright side of a situation?
What do you do when things go wrong?
You may have noticed in this world that some people seem to always see the bright side of life, while others seem to always see the worst in a situation. Some people say that we are born either positive or negative, while others say that it is something that we can develop. I tend to live on the bright side of life; however I also believe we can choose our outlook.
So what can we do to improve our outlook? After all, we all have bad days, weeks or even months. I tend to need time alone to think and fill my mind with positive thoughts. I do this through affirmations, reading and listening to positive material. Though we are all different, I find that positive material to support oneself is a good first step.
I am not saying it is easy to keep up a positive outlook, especially when things are going wrong. There may be times that you also need to talk to professionals and seek treatment if there is a deeper issue. These can be all steps to move towards a better outlook.
So why do we want to have a positive outlook? What is the benefit?
I find that when in a positive zone, my mind tends to go to solutions when I hit a snag. By having a positive outlook my mind operates in a more creative space. I also find myself happier in general through having a positive outlook. Try it, you will notice a difference.

Great words, thank you for sharing. We all struggle with negative feelings at some point and the worse is that when you know the effects that a negative mindset has on your life, the anxiety brought by these bad times increases. I think that while we try to get to a better emotional place is important to acknowledge that is ok to feel bad sometimes, as long as we try to feel a little better every day.
Appreciate your comments Julio. Like the goal of trying to feel a little better everyday. Great advice.
