POSITIVELY POSITIVE….. There is a question that seems to be asked on a very frequent basis and that being “how do you stay so positive when there is so much negativity in the world?” To me, it’s a very simple answer “I love life and am grateful for every moment of it”. It seems that there is a great deal of negativity in our world today and I want to offer you a few simple tools for everyday living to assist in turning the “negative” into a “positive” experience. EXPECTATIONS – Be clear on what you expect from others. If you would like your husband or wife to do a little bit extra in the house while you are away, just ask them instead of “expecting” that they will know what to do. This includes your kids, co-workers, friends and family. We sometimes get stuck in a trap of “thinking” that others know what is going on in our heads. They don’t, so be clear. TIMING – We want, what we want when we want it. Give life some time to deliver it to you. When we look back at our life, we may realize that if we had taken a certain job or been in a different place, we would not have met our husband or wife, landed that perfect job or have been ready for the experience. Timing is everything. GOSSIP – Be aware of situations where others are talking negative about co-workers, friends and family. Instead of agreeing or feeding the conversation with negative words try adding a different comment such as “maybe she is doing the best she can”. When we don’t feed the gossip and negative behavior, it can’t exist. GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK – Don’t beat yourself up if you don’t get it the first time. Whether it’s dieting or exercise, don’t dwell on the fact that you didn’t do it. Say to yourself “it’s ok, tomorrow is a new day” and try really hard to change the behavior. In my experience, when you are happy and do not allow negativity into your life, you naturally become more positive and attract positive influences, people and situations into your life. So give it a try….. become positively positive! Dianne Adams, creator and owner of Wisdom Words is a Motivational Speaker, Personal Life Coach and Healer. Contact Dianne at wisdomwords@sympatico.ca.
