9 Tips to Leading a More Positive Life

Keeping positive in a negative world is sometimes a challenge. Other people are ‘sad sacks’, moaning and groaning about the weather, the lotto results, the traffic, the price increases, the government.

It’s easy to pick up on the negativity and the doom and gloom they want to spread, but the other side of the coin, is being positive and a success.

I t takes between 21 and 28 days to change a habit. You alter one and there’s another habit you need to change. Your success is stepping stones in progress, but it's positive and you will succeed. Maybe not overnight, but then you’ve heard the old words “it’s taken my fifteen years to become an overnight movie star.” Our top sports people have been practising for years. It's the same with our life. Practice leads to improvement. The difference is the movie star and sports heroes have coaches, we just bungle along in life and expect successes.

If that's what you want in you life…. here's a few tips that will assist you. Copy them and put them on your office board or at home on the fridge.

  1. Turn off the television - Negatively is rife in life. It’s in the media, magazines, people. If you want to be positive you need to rid yourself of negativity.

  2. Achieve Results - You need to have a goal, dream or desire you’re working towards. Maybe it’s money in the bank, increased cash flow in your business. A holiday, new car or ten new clients. As the saying says in the Wizard of Oz. Any road will take you there, if you don’t know where you’re going.

  3. Overcome Fear - Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real. There’s a great book Feal the Fear and do it anyway by Susan Jeffries. Imagine not attempting to walk when you were young. You wouldn’t want to live without it now . . . but you didn’t give up. You tried and succeeded. Take small steps to over come your fear.

  4. Improve your Attitude - My Attitude postcard reads: Past, Present, Future, Every second you have a choice. Choose Positive and be your own Success Story. It’s true; you can only think one thought at a time. Make it a positive one.

  5. Gain Confidence - Walk tall, stand straight, wear your best clothes, use eye contact (careful with some cultures) Smile!. Robyn Henderson the International Networking guru says Fake it until you make it. You might have butterflies in your stomach, but no one can see them.

  6. Improve your communication - Join Toastmasters and at the same time gain confidence. Attend assertive communication courses, learn about confident communication and remember Hello and Thank You.

  7. Become Interactive - Just do it….is the Nike advertisement. Make the appointments and approach new clients, meet new people, join social clubs. Life is for living.

  8. ‘Do’ Victory - With every small success reward you. After ten sales calls, have a coffee, after a completing a task well, find a way of patting yourself on your back. Acknowledge that you’ve achieved something.

  9. Get Enthusiastic - Find the ‘it’s great to be alive’ feeling. Disco ver your passions, experience and enjoy them. Smell the roses, enjoy good health, eat well and find the vitality in life from within. You’ve got it, but it’s up to you to discover it. Everyone has free will, the choice is yours!
