Three simple ways to change our attitude:
1/ Change the way we think: Our thoughts create our feelings and attitudes which, in turn, dictate every actions we take in life. If we have negative thoughts, it tends to control our feelings and subsequently our actions which would come out negative also. When we could start taking control over our negative thoughts, then it will leads us powerfully to control our emotions. Taking control of our thoughts and emotion require a lot practice and self-discipline before we could see some positive outcome. 2/ Spend less time with negative people: We all would know several people in our life who moan and complain about life. They aren't bad people, but they have chosen to see the negative side of everything. Being around them can make us feel saddened and discouraged. Thus, we should try by changing the subject or gently challenging their negative points of view with our positive one. If you are a good advocate, you are not only able to change yourself positively and productively, but you may also be able to give a positive influence in return back to them too. 3/ Never wallow in the past: Dwelling over the past is just a great pain and it won't help us get it back at all. So, learn from the past, let it go, forgive yourself, change, and move on. Focus on the here-and-now, what you need and what could benefit your life today. Remember that our lives are meant to be lived forwards, not backwards. If anyone could implement these three easy steps, s/he will soon be on the way to living, not only a more positive and happier life, but also a successful life. Successful people are mindful to not indulge in negative thinking, socializing with negative people nor focusing on the past.
