Yes I Can!




”Yes we can!”
Barack Obama

Overtime I have found that with one of the most powerful things in life is the possession of a positive attitude. A positive attitude helps you cope more easily with the daily affairs of life. It brings optimism into your life, and makes it easier to avoid worries and negative thinking.

If you adopt it as a way of life, it ring can bring constructive changes into your life, and makes them happier, brighter and more successful. With a positive attitude you see the bright side of life, become optimistic, and expect the best to happen.

How you start your morning sets the tone for the rest of the day. Make sure that you have an attitude-boosting morning routine that puts you in a good mood so that you can start the day off right.

Instead of waiting for external things to make you happy, be happy and then watch how that influences the things that go on around you. That is, instead of telling yourself that first something good has to happen, and then you will be happy, be happy first. Happiness is an attitude, not a situation.

Relish Small Pleasures. Big pleasures – graduation, getting married, being promoted, having your book published – come too infrequently. Life is made up of tiny victories and simple pleasures. With the right mental attitude, watching the sunset, eating fresh sweet berries, and walking barefoot on the grass are all you need to be filled with joy.

Smiling will give you an instantaneous attitude boost. Try smiling for a minute while you think of a happy memory or the last thing that made you smile. Smiling releases endorphins and serotonin, also known as the feel good hormones. It is a lot easier to adopt a positive attitude when the chemicals being released by your body are conducive to well-being.

Take responsibility. At any moment your attitude can be that of a victim or of a creator. The first step you need to take to shift from victim-mode to creator-mode is to take responsibility. Here is the attitude of a creator:

I create my life.

I am responsible for me.

I am in charge of my destiny.

Every minute you are living is a blessing that has to be experienced in the moment. It is not always easy, but it is always an option – a choice. Your choice. Remember, your attitude toward life determines life’s attitude toward you. Choose to be positive today.

”Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power.”
William James
