Positive Mental Attitude
Author: Amadou Moustapha Sall
Look at this glass on the table in front of you. Is it half-full or is it half-empty?
Now, do you realize that it is entirely for you to decide what the answer to this question is going to be.
The choice is yours.
So, the very same reality can be seen in totally opposite ways: in a positive way, and in a negative way.
And there is always a positive side to any thing, any situation, any event, any person.
Look at the world in a different way. Try to find out that positive side. At first, you might literally have to dig it out, but after some time, it automatically appears to you. In fact, you eventually only see the good side.
Everything is beautiful, "everybody's beautiful, in their own way", as the song goes.
Our 3-step positive mental attitude formula. In any situation, however apparently bad:
1. Keep cool and coolly examine the situation. Turn it upside down, inside out, downside up and outside in.
2. Suddenly you realize it could have been worse. Find out how and why it could have been worse.
3. Finally, the good side of it will just appear to you. This can happen gradually or in a flash. It all depends on parts 1 and 2.
Soon you'll see all things and all people in a positive way
What you call "failure" is in fact simply a new opportunity to try again and do better than if you had "succeeded" in the first place.
Now, have you noticed that a rich person has more of a chance of getting a bank loan than a poor person? In other words: you must have money to be given MORE money!
In the same way, if you are a "happy person", you'll get MORE happiness.
As the great American poet Theodore Roethke said: "The right things happen to the happy man"
Don't worry, whatever type of person you are, you can easily turn yourself into a "happy person".
I can almost see your wry, "easier-said-than-done" smile.
But please, just try our 3-step formula and soon, very soon, in fact much sooner than you think, you'll take up a sturdy and radiant Positive Mental Attitude to life and THAT is the only key to wellness, happiness, and a longer life.
