@SmallFishMedia asks about ‘”How To Be More Positive On A Daily Basis”
What a great question and one I never expected to write about here at ProBlogger – it’s a little off topic but as I was asked it – here goes.
Firstly, I’m no expert on being positive. I’m a bit of an optimist (my wife complains that I can turn any situation into a positive one) though and like to be around other positive people.
For me it comes down to a few things. The first is being intentional about finding the positive things in your life. My parents taught me to be thankful and when I don’t feel thankful to find things to be thankful for anyway and to ‘practice being thankful’. Just like you don’t become good at anything without practice, sometimes being positive is something you need to learn to do and practice. Start with the small things – tell others about the, pray about them (if that’s your thing) but look for them and celebrate them in some way.
The second thing I’d say is to learn to turn problems into opportunities. My Marketing lecturer used to challenge us when we did projects to identify our weaknesses in business and turn them into strengths and to turn our threats into opportunities. This is somewhat counter intuitive but it’s a powerful thing when you do it right.
What do you think? Positivity can be an great thing to have as a blogger – how do you keep yourself thinking positively?
