Motivational Monday – Optimism, The Faith that Leads to Success.
Have you ever noticed how successful people tend to be positive people?
They have a spring in their step, a perpetual smile on their face and a twinkle in their eye.
And when they walk into a room they have an aura of confidence and joy that is magnetic!
Successful people are optimistic.
They are confident.
When they are confronted with challenges they see those as opportunity and do not doubt for a second that they will rise to the occasion.
They have dreams, BIG Dreams, and look forward to the journey that will lead them there.
They see endless possibilities where others may see nothing but dead ends.
They are not afraid to try new things and fail.
When they begin something they have faith that great things will come from their efforts. They do not fear the detours along the way or the unexpected outcomes. They relish the journey no matter where it leads.
Mindset is key in everything we do, be it in our personal life or in our business endeavors.
And a positive mindset is the key to success.
It may seem that successful people are just born positive. That they have a natural ability to rise above challenges, and to always see the good in people and in life.
And yes, some people are naturally more positive than others, but everyone can develop a positive mindset. It is a choice that we have the ability to make daily and a discipline we must engage in regularly.
Our mindset is greatly affected by the environment in which we are raised and the role models we follow, but we can at any time change our mindset.
Optimism is a mindset that we must cultivate. In the same way that we strengthen our muscles when we commit to a daily exercise routine, we have the power to develop and strengthen a positive mindset by committing to engaging in activities that make us feel good and surrounding ourselves with people who uplift us and push us to do our best.
People who are dreamers and believers.
People who are positive.
As human being we all inherently seek, even crave happiness. We are naturally drawn to things that infuse our life with joy and excitement. Things that make us feel fully alive.
And we have the ability to tap into that joy and bring more of it into our life every day. And the more frequently we do this, the easier it becomes.
In the same way, the more we focus on the setbacks, the obstacles, the more of these we seem to encounter.
When life feels overwhelming, be it at school, home, or work, it’s important to take a step back, disconnect from the feeling of overwhelm recognizing that is temporary, and focus on finding the solution.
Every morning brings a fresh start, and we must decide every morning how we make use of the 24 hours that lay before us.
I challenge you today to commit to seeing only possibilities for good in your day. To confront any obstacle with a smile and the belief that you will conquer it. To approach your day with the belief that it will be a great day no matter what comes your way.
Believe and you will achieve!
Are you ready?
