Having a positive attitude is more than painting a smile on your face, the feeling is rooted deeper than “grin and bear it.” Having a negative view is a drag. It makes you defensive, causes you to second guess every decision, and encourages you to surrender before you start. We’ve all found ourselves consumed with fear, mired in self-doubt, dragging yourself from the abyss is a difficult proposition.
A couple of tricks can help. Foremost, watch your language and your thoughts. Don’t worry, no one will tell your mama. Does your thinking turn to unfavorable outcomes or do you imagine something different? Noticing and changing a single response may not seem like much, but it might be the spark that changes everything.
What response will you change today?
Keep on writing.
