There are 3 types of people: negative people, people with the desire to be positive, and naturally positive people. I would give everything in my life to be naturally positive. I certainly don’t have it harder than most people and I am grateful for things I do have in my life, but most things don’t seem to come easy for me. You have heard the term “worth fighting for” right? That seems to sum up my life, and my mentality. I am always fighting for better things, trying my best, and holding on to the best things that have ever happened to me.
A lot of good things in my life, physically and figuratively have died. A lot of good things still exist, but the hardest thing to loss is a good thing. Bad things slip out of our thoughts and disappear, and sometimes good things lost, never really leave. You would think with all I have going that positivism comes natural but it does not. However I try my best and positivism sinks in more and more every day.
I guess what I am trying to say is I am no better or different than anyone else, I choose to be positive as much as possible and so can you. Everything we do in life is a choice. Sometimes we make good choices, sometimes we make bad ones. If we can learn something from the bad ones we could say that it was still a positive experience. Everything I write in this blog mostly relates to things in my life, and taking positive spins off of my realities. The hardest thing of all for someone in my positive fighting position is practicing what I preach. I can shell out positive info to no end, but I still struggle sometimes to nail down what I say and apply it to my life when needed. Most of it sinks in but I do have my days were life just kicks my butt and I need someone to come and set me straight.
The fight for pure positivism in my life WILL NEVER STOP! There is a lot of good for us all out there, and it is worth it to me to keep fighting for it. Some of it will come easy and some of it you will have to fight for. Some of it will fill your heart, and some of it will break your heart. If I see something good I will go after it. If I see something bad I will destroy it. I know one thing for sure, negativity may come around once in a while but positivism will ALWAYS take over. Good things will align where they are meant to be. I have hit a few more speed bumps in my life recently and some others have returned but I think I am wired for a challenging life. To that I say BRING IT ON! If you can’t enjoy a challenge you will never fully enjoy your life.
Here is a challenge for those that choose to except, and another way for you to become a more positive person. For every negative person in your life find 3 good things about them. For every negative thought in your head think about 3 positive things about that very thing you are thinking about. For every bad day you have think about 3 things that were good about the day. For every negative or bad person you encounter find 3 good things about them. For every mistake you make what are 3 things that did or could come from it. For every bad story you hear on the news hop on the internet and find 3 good ones. For every person that wrongs you find 3 positive things about them.
I could just go on and on but I think you get the idea. It is so simple, is it not? I actually learned this in the short time I was in marketing. I learned so much about how to talk to people. I learned more ways to be and stay positive. I know a ton about goals but in this marketing job I learned so much more. I ended up moving on from marketing and it has just opened myself up to learn even more new things about life, and my life. Never stop learning, never stop reading and never stop listening.
This little trick has really helped me on many occasions. I am certainly not super humanly positive 100% of the time but those spikes when I am presented with negatives I have a variety of positives that linger nearby. When you look for the positives long enough, eventually it grows on you and starts to become natural.
