  • TipsTo Be HighlyOptimist
  • Our attitude has a profound effect on the quality of our life. Optimism and pessimismcreate two completely different realities. By taking a few simple steps to adopt a morepositive attitude, you can enjoy both immediate and long term benefits.“Our attitude toward life determines life’sattitude towards us.” ~Earl Nightingale
  • The fact is, optimistic people tend to experiencemuch greater personal joy on a day-to-daybasis than their pessimistic counterparts.Increased happiness is one of the immediate positiveeffects of a more optimistic attitude.
  • 1. Think Gratitude.A grateful mindset exerts a powerful influence on your outlook. Not only does it make you feel good in themoment, it also shifts your focus in a positive direction. Turn your attention toward your blessings andkeep it there. As you focus more on what you are grateful for in your life, you will worry less aboutanything that may be lacking. As a result, you will experience a more pervasive sense of happiness!“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues,but the parent of all the others.” ~Cicero
  • 2. Choose Happiness.Being happy is not about circumstances or any other outside force. Happiness is a decision wemake. Why not make up your mind to embrace happiness, starting now? Go ahead and make adecision. Let your personal identity get all wrapped up in the concept of happiness. Fold itaround yourself like a big comfortable blanket.“The greatest part of our happiness dependson our dispositions, not our circumstances.”~Martha Washington
  • 3. Substitute Challenges for Problems.Subconsciously, the word problem says, “Life is not as it should be.” On the other hand,the word challenge sends no such message. Instead of trying to repair a malfunction, ourresources are recruited to search for a new opportunity. Seeing an experience as a challengewill focus our attention on a positive outcome.“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimistsees the opportunity in every difficulty.” ~Winston Churchill
  • 4. View Life as a Journey.A journey is an adventure of discovery. When we are on a journey we don’t fear change,we welcome it. We look forward to new and unfamiliar experiences. On a journey we arefull of optimism because we are filled with the expectation of a wonderful adventure. Thisis the perfect attitude to carry with you every day.“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimistsees the opportunity in every difficulty.” ~Winston Churchill
  • 5. Stop and Smell the Roses.When you constantly feel rushed and scattered, it can be difficult to maintain an optimisticoutlook. Buying out regular opportunities to focus on simple pleasures can help restore asense of balance to your life. By pausing briefly to really taste your food or enjoy a beautiful pieceof music, you remind yourself of the joy of simplicity.“It is always wise to stop wishing for things long enough to enjoythe fragrance of those now flowering.” ~Patrice Gifford
  • 6. Begin Your Day On a Positive Note.Find a few minutes each morning to clear your mind and then think positive thoughts about theupcoming day. Focus on the people and events that bring you joy or a sense of satisfaction. Takesome time to look forward to everything that you will enjoy. Now carry that feeling with you all daylong, even during the less enjoyable activities. Let your optimism flow into your entire day.
  • 7. Be Positively Aware.Make it a habit to actively search for the positive side of everything. Turn it into a privategame. With practice, you will be surprised how easy it becomes to see the not so obviousbenefits and pleasures all around you. Being alert to the reasons for optimism also helpsmove our attention away from the negative side of life.“When you change the way you look at things,the things you look at change.” ~Max Planck
  • 8. Act Out Happy.You can use words and body language to program your nervous system. When you makea conscious effort to walk the walk and talk the talk, your feelings will soon follow. Our personalperspective takes a lot of clues from how we act. If you act like a happy optimistic person,your mind accepts that as your reality. Try it and see for yourself.
  • 9. Hang Out With Positive People.Use the power of peer influence to feed your sense of optimism. The attitude of the peoplearound us can be a powerful force for good or bad. Seek out the company of those with asunny disposition and let yourself be influenced by their optimism. Use the groupdynamic to your benefit.
  • 10. Do A Gratitude Review Nightly.This is a great way to end your day. Before you go to bed think of at least ten things thatyou are truly grateful for. Let yourself feel the joy that those things bring to your life. Fallasleep reflecting on your blessings.“Reflect each day on all you have to be grateful for andyou will receive more to be grateful for.” ~Chuck Danes
  • 11. Minimize Exposure to Negative Influences.Stop watching, reading, or listening to the news. If you can free yourself from thisnegative influence it will change your life. Without that pervasive daily dose of despair,you will find it so much easier to focus on positive things in life.
  • “Remember, the happiest people are not the ones who have the best ofeverything, they are the ones who are grateful for everything they have.”Sompong YusoontornRead this list daily, it will help you stay on track. If you catch yourself sliding intoa pessimistic head space, stop and review your list. All you need to do is stay thecourse for 30 days and these thing will become part of your nature.
