Remaining Positive in a Negative World


Who hasn’t heard the saying, “Life isn’t fair”, at least once in their lives? I know that phrase is something I used to hear constantly growing up and it rings true. However, despite life not being fair, how is it that you can remain focused and positive even with the things that life throws at you?

It’s all about shifting your frame of mind. If you are constantly looking at the world negatively or seeing the glass as “half-empty”, you honestly won’t go far in life. You will be stuck in a perpetual cycle of doing the same things over and over again and not being any happier. In fact, you may become depressed which can lead to a whole host of other problems, making you feel even worse.

Positivity isn’t something that can be easily acquired. You have to change your thought processes and how you see yourself in the world. Even if you may not think too positively about yourself, or in general are not a positive person, it is a good practice to force yourself to consitently want to be better.

If you see an aspect of your life that you want to fix?

Change it.

If you want to start a new career?

Change it.

You can start by becoming a more positive person in three simple ways:

  1. Every morning when you wake up, look in the mirror and say one nice thing that you like about yourself.
  2. When you may be assigned a new project at work, instead of doubting yourself, say that you’re up for the challenge. You can handle it.
  3. Exercise at least 30 minutes a day. It can be something as simple as walking or dancing by yourself in your room. Either way, you need to get those endorphins engaged.

Now these ideas that I’ve shared above are just a start and they can be the building blocks on which you can begin to build your more positive outlook on life. You have to start somewhere, so why not start small and go from there?

Selfless pursuits versus Selfish pursuits

I totally love this! It is so easy to get caught up in our own situations and totally lose sight of what’s really important…which is people and our relationships. I remember going out to dinner with a friend and the entire night she was talking on the phone to her boyfriend. Then began to rush me as he wanted her to meet up with him later. Long story short, I dropped her off and we haven’t had a one-on-one dinner again. It’s all about how you treat people.


Lets say you come across two people while you are out running errands. The first person you encounter is an old acquaintance. You all begin catching up and out of nowhere they say, “I just donated $500 to this organization.”  You wonder, “Why did they tell me that?” The second person you run into is an acquaintance as well. You all have a casual conversation. They share with you that they were inspired by a friend who recently donated their time to paint a community center. It made them want to do more and serve others in some way.

Both people are good people with well intentions. However, each one has a different pursuit. One is selfish and the other is selfless. The picture above illustrates a problem that all of us have encountered at some point. We are out with our friends, on a date or with family. However…
