Positive Attitude - How to Stay Positive When Things Aren't Going Your Way

April 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 117

There are sometimes in our life when things don't exactly go our way. Personally, right at this moment I'm writing this article, I feel like things aren't exactly going the way I want them to go for me personally. The very act of writing this article will, in fact, get me going in the right direction again. Hopefully you will get some value out of this as well.

In the last paragraph, a common theme is highlighted. The best way to learn something is to teach it. When I was in the Marines, we would always be subject to give hip pocket classes to test our knowledge of something. Hip pocket classes were on the spot classes we would have to teach on a variety of topics. The fear of having to give a hip pocket class and not knowing the subject matter forced us to really know our job.

So when things aren't going your way, teach someone how to stay positive when things are going awry. Who do you teach? Teach yourself. You will find that as you start focusing on what you would tell someone else that your mood will slightly change as well.

When things aren't going well in your life, it's easy to focus on what is not going well. Focusing on what isn't going well will bring more things into your life that will not go well. You will continue to attract those situations that you categorize as not going well.

You have to get out of your element and work to change your focus. Once you start looking outward and thinking how to help someone else, you take the focus off of yourself. What you put your focus on will expand. Look for something that is going your way and concentrate on that. Find something that makes you feel better about your situation and be grateful about that!

You have everything you need already right inside of you. You have the power to control your situations, circumstances, and events that occur in your life. In life, it isn't what happens to you, it is how you respond to what happens to you. You have the choice to be happy and positive or down and depressed. You have the control and power. Focus on what is good and more good will come into your view to focus on!

What ever your situation, there is always something good to focus on. Look for the gold in everything that happens to you. You have to move tons of dirt to find the gold. You aren't looking for the dirt. You are looking for the gold!
