Ways to Happiness #1: Think Positive.

"If you can dream it, you can do it. Your limits are all within yourself." -Brian Tracy
 Nothing can beat negativity than what else? Positivity.

     Seeing the good about something bad can really brighten one's perspective for that particular thing. For instance, it's raining so hard and you forgot your car keys or umbrella and you're stuck in the office or school, the positive side of it is that you can either finish your work, see your crush, or even think of how later this evening, it would be cold that you don't have to use the AC anymore! If there is one negative event, a lot of positive things can be gained from it.

     Why can't we let negativity rule us? Sure, being negative and always ranting about things is easier than seeing the better side of it but we can't always have this view on things. Here are some of the reasons why you should be positive:
  • Negativity limits us. It hinders us from doing something that we want to do. At times, you just have to let go of doubts and plunge in as long as it would benefit you and others. 
  • We affect the people around us. If we have a positive view on life, tendency is the people around us come to have that view as well. 
  • We feel light and happy. Always thinking about the bad has this certain weight within us that makes the world seem darker. Lighten up! The whole world does not consist of the bad, there are good things in it too.
Here's another quote:
"Take a 30-second vacation. Go within and focus on the positive, thereby creating an attitude built on strength, courage, and infinite possibilities." -Keith D Harrell

     Being positive let's you live life without worrying to much on the "what-ifs" and the "could-have-beens". Life should not be lived like that. Dwelling too much on the past cannot help you move forward and the push we need is to take time to breathe, look at the happy moments life offers and embrace these so that they can serve as the totem for you to go on living how life should be truly lived.
