Learn How To Think Like An Optimist
Experts have determined that when you change your outlook on life and your way of thinking, you'll literally change your life - and it's true. If your outlook on life is to sit around waiting and expecting the worst to happen, then you'll certainly get what you're expecting.
What inevitably happens is you find your mistakes along the way to trying to reach your goals. You notice all of the problems with your plan, and then, feeling overwhelmed by your ongoing struggles, you stop trying because you've noticed that everything is going wrong.
This is the point where so many people fumble on the way to finding happiness and the changes they want to make. Their minds are concentrating so hard to recognize the bad things in their life, they forget about anything that is working well.
So here's some good advice if you're getting frustrated with all the failures your focusing on in your life. For just one day, try to focus on your life through the eyes of an optimist - a complete and total optimist. This might seem like a dumb idea, especially if you're an eternal pessimist, but what you'll be doing is bringing another perspective - an objective perspective into your view of the world.
An optimists views the world as if it only has good and beneficial things to offer and thus they're open for the opportunities to learning and growth that comes their way rather than the obstacles that must be faced. Rather than getting upset about the car that cut them off in traffic, they're hope is that there wasn't an emergency that caused the driver to need to go so fast.
Optimism isn't something that generally comes easy for most people. it takes practice. What you might want to do is to start thinking about your life as if it's the life of a good friend of yours. When you sense that something isn't going right during your day, try changing your thinking from focusing those negative things to focusing on something positive.
For example, if your friend lost his job, you wouldn't tell him it was because he was the worst employee in the company (though you might tell this to yourself), you'd probably tell him it wasn�t his fault and there must have been another reason.
When you start treating yourself and your life in the same way you'd treat a good friend, you'll start to see many more possibility in life, rather than problems.
So what is an optimist? It's someone who strives to look for the good in everything. So why not give it a try. Just for today, look for the good in everything. Is it realistic to think this way every day? Who knows for sure? However, what you're doing is allowing your life to be as wonderful and happy as you can make it, and maybe as wonderful as it already is, except you just weren't paying attention to the good things.
