By | February 22, 2018

It’s no secret, maintaining a healthy outlook on life by staying positive is one of the keys to living a happy and fulfilling life.

However, none of us have the power to control all the circumstances and events surroundings us.

Because, let’s face it. When things are going our way and we feel as if we are in control of life. It’s easy to stay positive and happy.

Even though you can’t control the circumstances and events in your life. Truth be told, how you respond to it, is up to you.

How to Stay Positive – 7 Secrets to Staying Positive

First of all, I want you to understand that life is too short to allow yourself to be upset and offended by things that are out of your control. When you allow the events in your life to control your level of happiness, there will always be something that will cause you to be disappointed and upset.

To learn more about how to handle disappointment then read my article “How to Deal with Disappointment and Frustration in Your Life!”

What’s more, one of the biggest challenges to staying positive is the world is full of critics that are more than willing to criticize you. But here’s the thing, you don’t have to respond to every critic. You don’t have to prove yourself to anyone.

Pray, meditate and stay positive!

Also, never forget that, some people you meet aren’t going to like you no matter what you do. However, the good news is, once you realize this it’s easier to accept and a whole lot easier to stay positive knowing that you are enough just as you are.

In addition, stop being so hard on yourself. Just do your best to stay positive and understand that there is no need to beat yourself up if sometimes you don’t succeed at staying positive.

More importantly, make up your mind that you aren’t going to accept anybody’s garbage.

Believe it or not…

The more positive you are the more people are going to try to dump their baggage on you. Unhappy people will try and bring you down because they don’t realize there is a better way.

And that’s okay. There is no need to get angry or upset (because that’s what they want) instead just be willing to let go and let God handle it. Always remember to take the trash out before you go to bed at night.

Interestingly enough, if you can find things to be thankful for in this moment and be happy, more and more, you will find that you have even more to be thankful about.

The truth is, in life staying positive is easy. All you have to do is take ownership of your life by accepting responsibility for it. Realize that no one can steal your happiness and joy because you are the creator of your experience.
