7 Tips To Always Be Positive.
In this post I will be giving you 7 tips to be a positive person, so if on the last post you found out that you are a negative person and want to change that, or just want to improve on your positiveness, keep reading this post and find out how.
NUMBER 1: Stop complaining.
The first tip that I will give you is to stop complaining. Now, let me explain why. Bad things, bad news, bad days, bad results always happen, but the most important thing to get over them is the ability to not complain about it, instead just let it slide. When we complain we create this idea in our heads that everything is terrible, we get angry at whatever is happening, we then get angry at whoever is around us, and then at ourselves, so just stop complaining. I know it is not as easy as it sounds, but it really is the only way to be positive. Whatever it is that you are going through, think that it will be over at some point, and once it is over, you will be able to start over in a better way.
NUMBER 2: Don’t let mistakes control your life.
Mistakes are made every single time, we are not perfect, and we should never be expected to, but when mistakes are made, those usually control our lives and whatever we do, and that is the worst thing that we can do. When we let mistakes control our lives we are opening the doors of our lives to more mistakes, and lots of complaining, and stress, and bad energy, and trust me, that is something you want to stay as far away from as possible, so my advice here is to control those mistakes, now this is how you do it. Whenever you make a mistake, you can’t get mad, you can’t get stressed, you gotta think that you are not the first nor the last person to ever make that same mistake, and everything always has a solution, so just get up, face that mistake, fix it, and learn how to never make it again, it really is way easier than what you think, you just need to try and you will see for yourself that it works and it will become a habit.
NUMBER 3: Love yourself.
Both of the previous points, are extremely important to remain positive, but there is one thing that you need to do in order to be able to do those two, and that is to love yourself the way you are. Unfortunately we live in a world where other people shame us for being a certain way, and most of the times we let those people control our thoughts and our personal opinion on ourselves, and I have been there myself, for a very long time, I used to be ashamed of many things, like my weight, or how my hair was starting to fall off, or the way I look when I wear my glasses, until I understood that my weight, my hair, my glasses or any other thing that people would shame me for didn’t make me who I was, because whether I was slim or fat, or whether I had a beautiful long hair, or I was completely bald, I was the same person, that did not change who I was at all, because I am not what I look like, or what I like to do in my free time, or even less who I love, I am who I am because I think a certain way, and because I have a certain purpose in life, and most importantly, because I have a life to live that belongs to me only, so I learned that only I had the power to say what was good and what wasn’t about me.
Life is beautiful if you live it correctly, but the only way to do so, is by loving the skin in which you live that live, and I promise once you love yourself you will love everything around you, and everything around you will love you in return.
NUMBER 4: Appreciate what you have.
Another very important tip that I want to give you in order to be a positive person, is to always appreciate what you have. Being truly grateful is one of the most difficult yet most rewarding things in life. It is extremely difficult because sometimes you were expecting something and you ended up getting the exact opposite, or maybe you didn’t get anything at all, and that always brings us down, but I promise you, if you are able to be thankful for what you have and for what you don’t, eventually everything you wanted and didn’t get will get to you.
I remember when I was in high school, my dream was to be on a stage, covered in makeup, and wearing an amazing costume, under a very bright spotlight, and singing my favorite broadway tunes, and I have to say, I was able to do it, even though it did not last as long as I expected it to. I wanted to be on broadway, and when I realized that it was not the right path for me I was kind of devastated, I lost faith on myself, I lost courage, and I lost confidence, I started to believe that I wasn’t good enough, and I started arguing about everything I had, and asking why I didn’t get what I asked for, until one day I realized, that if it is meant to be, then it will be, and if it isn’t I still have the great memories of my nights at the theatre laughing with my friends, and singing amazing songs that I will never forget. Today not only I appreciate what I have, I also love my life, and sometimes it can be a little difficult to get through, and keep moving on, but when I see how blessed I am I smile and say, what a great life I have. Remember that you are not entitled to what you have, because whatever it is that your life looks like, many people right now are losing theirs, and you still have yours, so in reality, your life is not that bad after all.
NUMBER 5: Leave the past behind.
It is great to have memories, sad, funny, scary, happy, whatever those memories may be, not only it is great to have them, it is also important, after all it is your story, but there is a very big difference between a memory and a chain, remembering stories from your childhood, all the many lessons you have learned is a great thing in life, but it should never stop you from moving on. If there is something from your past, that you know can become and has already become an obstacle, you have to overcome it, and the only way to do it, is by letting it go.
When I was 18 years old, I met someone who I thought it was that one person meant for me, and even though I kinda knew that nothing would ever happen between us, I kept holding on to it, my heart got broken, and I kept holding on to it, then I started to move on, but I kept hold on to it, and that was stopping me from seeing all the great people that were in front of me, that one chain was keeping me from getting what I deserved, I deserved happiness, and I had it right in front of me, but that chain was way too stretched and I a little too close to that new door, but not enough to go through it, so one day, I realized that even though, that one person, that had become a chain, was part of my life, and would always be, I could not let it control me, and stop me from moving forward, so… knowing that breaking that chain would immediately break that bond, I cut it off and got away from it, and today I have met many people, from whom I have learned many great things, people that have made me who I am today, and even though I still remember that one person, I am finally able to see what I have infant of me, because I am not tide to what's behind anymore, so leave the past behind. I’s not telling you to forget it, because you will never be able to do it, but for sure, you can leave it in the past, and keep as a memory.
NUMBER 6: Take risks.
Life is full of great things that happen every single day, like being able to wake up one more time, and seeing the light of the day, and feeling the breeze, and the heat from the sun, and hearing the birds sing, and to say hello to our loved ones, or maybe, to remember the ones who are not with us anymore, life really is wonderful, but every good thing comes with a not too great one, in this case that is risks. You have probably hear that phrase that says “so gain without sacrifice” or “nothing ventured, nothing gained”. In order to get something you need to give something back and sometimes it is very risky to do, but it has to be done, take risks, sacrifice, and I assure you at the end it will be worth it. When I started this blog, I had to put so much of my time into it, writing all these articles, recording all the videos, designing every little thing of the website, every post on social media, sometimes I stayed up till early in the morning writting new things for you to read, and I didn’t know if it was really going to be successful, and I still don’t know, that is for sure, but I will never know if I stop now, so… I gotta keep trying until something happens, and keep giving my all, because if not, maybe this could be a hit, but if I don’t risk it and stop now, I will never know.
NUMBER 7: Get up after you fall.
For this last point, I will be brief. Every single time you try to do something, you will fall, you will make a mistake, you will forget something, you will do something new that should have never been done, and you will end up asking yourself why, but just remember that asking yourself why, will not fix it, or replace it, or re-do it, so don’t ask, just get back up, start over, remember your mistake to not do it again, and go all the way to the finish line, and until you cross that line, don’t take that last breath, because if you do, you might have wasted your last chance to get to the end.
These were the 7 tip to always be positive.
