What Can You Do When Your Sad
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Life is undoubtedly filled with several ups and downs. While it may seem that you spend exponentially more time in the valleys, it is all about your perception. Your perception and attitude are extremely important in determining the outcome. An old saying asserts that your attitude determines your altitude. Today, your attitude is set for incomparable altitudes of success. However, you must first see it, believe it, and not allow sad people to destroy your new reality of abundant success.

1) "I am good enough, I am strong enough, and somebody likes me" was the affirmation of Saturday Night Live's fictional character, Stuart Smalley. As the king emotionally challenged and sad people, even Stuart knew the amazing power of suggestion. Every day you should verbally suggest or tell yourself that you can achieve the desired goal. It may seem silly, but if you can hear yourself saying you can do it, you are already begun to plant seeds of victory and change your attitude.

2) Use Happy Juice to naturally enhance your personal satisfaction. While most people instantly think of their favorite mixed beverage, which is actually a depressant; happy juice is your body's natural endorphins. Endorphins are similar to feel-good medicines that your body releases. However, sitting in your room pouting or hanging out with other sad people will not help you increase your juice. To get the juice flowing, you can take a nice jog, brisk walk, swim, or anything to get your heart rate going faster. Endorphins will be released and you will undoubtedly feel better.

3)Misery Loves Company should be the sequel to the 1990 thriller, "Misery." As one of the creepiest movies in the history of cinema, Stephen King's title character Annie Wilkes was lonely and was miserable in her tomb of self pity and self loathing. Instead of trying to get out, she desired the company of someone else in her egregious habitat. So when she found famous author Paul Sheldon on the side of road suffering from a wreck, she nursed him back to health only to physically cripple and hold him hostage as a prisoner in her misery. Some sad people love company and have no desire to be happy. Do not let anyone cripple you with their misery and hold you hostage. Even though misery loves company, you don't have to be the guest of honor.

4)Succeeding in Failure is one of the most productive but difficult (Jedi) mind tricks you can ever employ. One of the most common traits that sad people share is immenent failure. In every thing you do in your life, you have multiple options throughout the event. For example, if you are in a sales contest at work, and you end up in fourth place; you can always pout and blame someone else. On the other hand, you can win in the failure by changing your perception. (1) You didn't come in last. (2) Wow, you have an amazing ceiling. (3) You have the opportunity to learn from your mistakes, analyze your errors, and take responsibility for the results. This amazing and powerful learning process can turn any failure into a winning event.

Unfortunately, sad people are highly contagious. Their negativity will easily spill over and consume all who allow them to reside within their psyche. Once in your head, negativity will change your perception, convince you that you cannot complete the task and deliver certain defeat before you ever begin to fight. Instead, use these tips to visualize victory, amplify your capabilities, and have a winning experience regardless of the results.
