5 Ways optimism Improves Your life

Optimism is a habit that can be cultivated. You can reshape your thinking!

Researchers have found that individuals who maintain a positive attitude during intense surgeries and after, usually have a shorter recovery period. People who work in high stress environments find their inner peace and balance by focusing on the positives of their job. The act of meditation focuses on finding gratitude in your hardest struggles even in the midst of the paralyzing challenges.

Out of the three scenarios, learning how to develop an optimistic attitude was the common factor. In fact, people who strive to look for the "silver lining" usually rise above their challenges with triumph and victory.

While it's easy to say, "Focus on the positive, and you'll be happier" putting it into practice is quite difficult. It may even seem insurmountable when you face certain challenges. However, trying to find the positive, in whatever you're going through, will save you a lot of stress. You may even find a useful solution to the problem you're facing.

Since remaining optimistic during tough times is challenging, it's important to consider a few tips and tricks that'll reshape the way you think. Let's go over five valuable tips that'll help you maintain a positive attitude.

Optimism:
1. remove Yourself from Toxic People

If you're trying to elevate your mentality and remain positive, you have to remove yourself from negative people. It's almost like trying to grow an orchid in a dry environment. It simply won't flourish. When people drain you of your energy, constantly criticize or put you down, it's time to let them go. Walking away from unhealthy relationships is the first step towards loving yourself and maintaining your optimistic outlook.

Optimism:
2. Practice Speaking Kind Words

It's easy to get in the habit of negative communication. Whether it's complaining about your morning commute or not getting enough praise on your job, you can find yourself complaining about everything. This negative attitude can transcend into every aspect of your life. Soon, you'll find yourself having a negative disposition. Practice speaking kind words about yourself and what's around you. The old saying, "If you donít have anything nice to say, don't say it" will definitely come in handy.

Optimism:
3. Love Yourself

Having a negative outlook stems from not being fully confident in yourself. In order to find the positive in your life, start with what's amazing about yourself. Practice daily affirmations so you can remind yourself how awesome you are. Get in the habit of regular self-care and stick to it. This will help you change your outlook towards whatever situation presents itself. 

Optimism:
4. Make Progressive Changes

If you're finding it hard to stay positive in your current situation, perhaps make changes to get out of it. If you dislike your job, make the effort necessary towards finding a new one. If you're feeling unhealthy, make nutritious changes so you can live your best life. Sometimes a little effort is all you need to change your current perspective. Baby steps!

Optimism:
5. Give to Others

They say there is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving. When you give of yourself to others, you're no longer focusing on your own issues. You're exposing yourself to those who are less fortunate and making their moment better. If you find yourself constantly in a negative space, volunteer at a homeless shelter. If it's in your means, donate to a local animal charity. This will give you a broader perspective and help you develop an overall positive attitude.

Shifting your focus from negative to positive is not an overnight fix. It takes a lot of self-improvement and effort to really see changes. Keep working towards changing your perspective and you'll be on your way to living a happy life.

Make the positive choice to develop and maintain an optimistic outlook. Do this every morning when you wake up. Decide that today is going to be a great day. Everyone will have some level of suffering in their life. Choosing to be optimistic will make it easier to bounce back from the bad times and to enjoy and be certain of the good times.

Your attempt may fail but never fail to make an attempt!

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size of rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

How many of us are being held back by old, outdated beliefs that no longer serve us? How many of us have avoided trying something new because of a limiting belief? Worse, how many of us are being held back by someone else’s limiting beliefs?

Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve!
CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.
