A Good Life

‘For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.’
Audrey Hepburn

I recently decided to change the way I look at each day. trying to seek the best in everything The day tends to turns out exactly the way you approach it. If you think it’s bad, it’s bad. If you think it’s good, it’s good. The same goes with people. Today if you feel tempted to focus on another person’s flaws, ask yourself, ‘What good qualities am I overlooking, and what possibilities could I create if I focused more on those’?

Make a practice of looking for the best in people and situations. You will find this simple approach induces optimism and positivity.

Try every day to look for the positives in other people. Focus on positives of other people and this will directly reflect on the way you look at yourself.

Researchers have shown that how you explain events in your life is linked to whether you are an optimist or a pessimist. Optimists tend to have a positive explanatory style. If you attribute good things that happen to your own skill and effort, then you are probably an optimist. Pessimists, on the other hand, usually have a negative attributional style. If you credit these good events to outside forces, then you likely have a more pessimistic way of thinking.

‘I don’t like that man. I must get to know him better.’
Abraham Lincoln
