Positive People; A Positive Psychology

Who is, really, a positive person? Is it the person that accepts everything as it is or is it the person that knows about the power of his mind and how can he change the world around him for the better? I believe you have all guessed the correct answer for this one;

Here is a small list of characteristics that I think would really sum up a positive person who always tries to improve life around him with a great attitude.

While I would like to consider myself a "positive person", which I believe I am, I will refer to the “positive people” as “them” not “we” since I have just begun to change my life in a positive way only about two months ago and I still have major flaws in my ex-negative-mind that I am working on. Hopefully we will all manage to overcome every "challenge" in the following list:

They Count Their Blessings

Positive people don't complain about life, family, work, chores and basically about everything, as we do. They accept their situation as it is and focus on improving it. They are grateful for what they have and always try to focus on the positive side of everything.

They Speak A 'Positive Language'

You never hear them say: "Oh I can't do that" or "I'm not intelligent enough to do that" They only know the words: "I Can" and "I Will". When you say that you can or you will you are projecting in your mind a better, healthier, richer YOU! This may sound like a cliché, but believing in yourself really is the key to achieving everything you want in your life.

They Take Care Of Their Image, In & Out

A positive person will care about how he appears in public. Positive people want to look and feel their best because they know that that’s the secret to feeling good about yourself, and thus being confident about your abilities. That’s the main thing! You have to feel good about YOURSELF! They are always smiling, even if maybe they don’t feel like it. They are making an effort to be happy! It is always our choice whether to feel happy or sad, happiness is ultimately our decision; we are happy when we WANT to be happy.

They Keep An Open Mind To New Ideas

You can’t get stuck in a boring format, an old school idea or some other sort of “old” mental behavior. You have got to keep evolving with the world around you! It will keep you fresh and motivated throughout the day! You might even learn something new that would help you improve your life! How do you imagine you would feel if you were still doing the same things as you did ten, twenty years ago? Pretty bored I think! Positive people aren’t afraid to try new things.

They See Problems As A Challenge

‘Normal’ people would see a problem that could arise as “the end”. Because of their negative mind, they easily lose focus and motivation because they think they are not capable of the task at hand. When, in reality, you are way more capable at doing whatever your heart desires. Do not let tiny mishaps ruin your chances at improving your life.

They Don’t Allow A Negative Thought To Ruin Their Day

Yes, everybody gets negative thoughts and emotions. It’s human nature. The important thing is that you do not put too much focus on that negative thing . Positive people have learned how to deal with situations like these and can replace negativity in an instant with more positive, happy thoughts. Remember: It’s all in the MIND! And finally....

Enjoy Your Life

You know you can’t live forever. Why should you spend your precious time worrying and feeling sad about life? It is a wonderful journey for us to explore, enjoy and improve. In a hundred years none of us will be here so you really don’t have forever! Make sure you try to enjoy every second of it. It really is up to you how life treats you!

Thank you very much for reading, hope you enjoyed it. I shall also try to improve my life further with little things I learn everyday. Hope you can join on this wonderful adventure to a happy & fulfilling life.

All the Best

I;m a positive person except for my dress code, I don't care what others think about how I dress, if I'm comfortable and covered I'm good. My wife moans about some of my choices in clothes, but I am who I am, and I dress as I want, not too worried about my outward appearance. I Am however friendly and talk to anyone, maybe they feel sorry for me and that is why they talk to me.

Hey Rob, my name is Chris btw (I been meaning to tell you since everybody calls me "Secret For You" lool) When it comes to our image I didn't mean we have to dress the best clothes. I mean that you have to wear what is comfortable for you, what you feel good in! Maybe I didn't get my point trough exactly there! If you say you are a positive person, YOU are! Thanks for the quick comment

Rob as long as they don't think you're the local bum. Don't change a thing unless people start offering you food parcels in the street. ;-)
