2. 1. They Assume the Best.
Positive people know that leaping to conclusions is usually a bad idea.
Instead of freaking out about an unanswered text (“What if they don’t
like me?”), they go on with their day (“hmm, they must be busy!”).
Before they decide another person is untrustworthy, they make an
honest effort to find out more about them.
3. It’s easy to live in a lie because lies can grow so strong that it can
eventually make people forget about the truth. Positive people know
that they need to face the truth and live with it because making
excuses will never get a solution for what have gone wrong.
2. They Face the Truth.
4. 3. They Let Go Of the Resentment
Positive people understand that resentment only causes pain in life
over and over again, so they let go of it. They choose to accept and
forgive things happened in the past to move on with what they have
learned from the incidents.
5. 4. They Express Gratitude for Every Blessing
Is it easy to forget the little things? Certainly. But positive people don’t
make a habit of it. Instead, they express gratitude for every blessing,
no matter how big or small. They know it’s silly to think more stuff will
make them feel better if they can’t be happy about what they have.
6. 5. They Are the CEO of Their Life
Positive people realize they are the CEO of their life and thus take full
responsibility for how things are. They didn’t get “stuck in traffic” —
they were late. They didn’t “have something come up” — they forgot.
Positive people don’t claim “they can’t help it,” because they can do
anything they set their mind to.
7. 6. They See Problems as “Challenges”.
The word “problems” is seen as “challenges” for positive people. They
believe that every obstacle comes as an opportunity that is yet to be
discovered. Positive people take the chance to challenge themselves
and improve their life.
8. 7. They Write Their Own Reality
This “reality” most people speak of sounds like a dreadful place
where dreams go to die. Positive people know that anything is
possible with consistency and hustle, so they choose to write
their own reality.
9. 8. They Work Hard for Achieving Success.
Positive people don’t fall for “lose weight fast” or “get rich quick”
scams. They know that anything worth having requires hard work
Positive people are comfortable with the fact that achieving success
might take a bit longer than they would like (but will be so worth it).
10. 9. They Explore the World With Enthusiasm
Boredom is a place where creativity, inspiration, and productivity die.
Positive people are fascinated by everything around them. They
explore the world with enthusiasm and curiosity, asking as many
questions as they can.
11. 10. They Ignore the Negative Thoughts
Positive people don’t subject themselves to a chorus of self-
defeating negative thoughts. When a negative thought passes
through their head, they remind themselves: if I wouldn’t say it
about another person, I shouldn’t think it about myself.
12. 11. They Improve Their Own Life
Positive people understand that everyone is different and has his own
progress, so they don’t compare themselves to other people. They are
confident about what they have and what they do. Instead of focusing on
how others are doing, they pay attention on how to improve their own life.
13. 12. They See Failures as “Lessons”.
Positive people don’t look at failure as a terrible thing to avoid at all
costs. They know that failure is a possibility when it comes to trying
anything new. Seeing failure for what it is helps positive people
achieve massive success as they learn and grow.
14. 13. They Take Action In the Here & Now
Positive people forget about perfection, because it’s just not possible.
When is the last time you thought, “Wow, this is the perfect day to get
in shape.” Oh, that’s right: you didn’t, because there isn’t a “perfect
time” to do anything. Positive people take action in the here and
now, perfection be damned.
15. 14. They Stay Close to Positive People
Positive people don’t let negative, toxic people drag them down. Instead,
they surround themselves with other positive people who are fun and
inspiring to be with. Why should a positive person spend their time with a
person who complains about everything and gossips about everybody?
Positive people know there is no good answer to that question.
16. Thank You Very Much
