We can have everything we want in this cruel world. The world may be cruel but it has everything we can ever need and want. We just have to know what it takes to get there, but knowing all the technicalities isn’t enough. There’s still one more thing that’s even more important: staying positive. Indeed, the world is a cruel place. It can knock you down a couple of times before you actually get what you want and deserve. But after those pulls and knockdowns, there will be something better that’s waiting for us.

There are loads of people who happen to have all the intellectual resources they need to succeed, but they still ended up in the opposite direction. That was because they had the wrong state of mind. You don’t have to be one of them. One of the best things about life is that we have the freedom to dream all we want, and what makes it even better is we have the ability to decide whether to make it come true or just go on dreaming. You can start making that decision now. Here are some of the habits you need to start learning now to stay on the positive lane to success and happiness:

1. Looking at the bright side of every bad situation

No matter how smart we are at school, no matter how productive we are at work, the world can still take a turn at us. Even so, it still helps to look at the bright side of the situation, but like many things, this is something easier said than done.

When we’re faced with a difficult situation it becomes hard to notice that its only one part of an entire picture. Despite the negative outcome, there is still a bright side sitting next to our problems, we just have to shift our heads a bit, and not focus too much on our problems. Once we realize that there is still hope, we can then get back to the track. Seeing the positive situation, the next step is to look for that one thing that can turn our life back around.

2. Cultivate and live in a positive environment

This article isn’t about staying positive for a day. Rather, it’s about staying positive as long as we live. So, how do we do that? We do it by exposing ourselves to positive stimuli.

It’s going to be real hard staying positive if we live under a roof where we hear nothing curse words. Everything starts at the home. What you’re like at our own space, that’s also what you’re going to be like once you leave the gates.

So, let’s say, you’ve already cultivated a positive environment back home. The journey to staying positive doesn’t end there. You still have to observe your positive habits when you leave the house. This means you have to spend time with people with the same positive mentality as you.

3. Live slowly

People are often carried away by their daily duties that they come to do everything as they appear. They don’t have the time to think things through. As a result, their actions don’t bear positive results. And then what happens when all our effort become a waste? It builds up lots of stress in us and then all the negative thoughts sink in.

Not only does it make for an unhealthy lifestyle, it can also cause us to spend the rest of our lives working, and not having the results that we want.

Have you ever tried being in a hurry to attend a meeting, and then just when you’re a few steps away from the conference room, you realize that you forgot something back home? Can you remember the frustration you felt back then, all the negativity that sunk into your veins during that day? Well, try to double that by a thousand because if you always live life in a hurry that’s what the end of your life is going to feel like. Now, imagine that you planned everything before you got to the meeting. With that, you had the freedom to take your time to get to the venue. Can you imagine the light feeling that comes with it as you leave the office? Yes, exactly. That’s the benefit living slowly.

4. Don’t let fear hold you back

The best thing about life is that we can be whatever we want. So, don’t ever let anything or anyone hold you back from your dreams.

Imagine that you were doing well in a job, and then suddenly an opportunity knocks at your face. You knew full well that you want to take this step forward, but some part of the mind is telling you to just shrug it off because one simple mistake can ruin everything you’ve already attained. So, what do you do? Take a risk. Failures aren’t meant to be the end. If you happen to succeed in taking this risk, and then good for you, but if you don’t and that doesn’t mean you should sulk for the rest of your life. Nor does it mean that you should refrain from taking any more risks. It is in failure that we come to know success. See your downfall as a new learning opportunity.

5. Add value and positivity to someone else’s life

It’s not just about you. You also have to give back to other people. The world is comprised of positive and negative people alike. The only way for you to stay positive is if you spread the positivity all around you.

SIGNS

By Victoria J.Brown

There are signs daily telling us we are going to the right (or wrong) direction. They are all around us and it’s our job to look out for them. If you are a spiritual individual, you’ll understand when I say your angels are constantly communicating with you. If you’d like to know more about angels and connecting with them, I recommend renowned best-selling author Doreen Virtue. If you’ve not heard of her, her books are a must-read.

But even if you’re not spiritual and you’re thinking the talk of Angels is a step too far, have a think about one word … coincidences.

Things happen in life that we call coincidences, but if you put the pieces together around these coincidences and work out the puzzle you’ll be amazed at what you’ll find.

In the words of Albert Einstein:

This brings me on to numbers – if you haven’t heard of numerology you can read more on an excellent website Numerologist

In a nutshell, numerology is related to your name and your life path. This is a really interesting way to look at your personality, your character and understand whether you are on the right life path or not.

Numbers are also sent to us by our angels, again, Doreen Virtue describes the meaning of numbers in her book, ‘Healing with Angels’

And in her own words …

Sometimes we don’t want to look for signs because we’re scared, we’re worried about the change in our lives, the upheaval … but if you’re unhappy anyway and you’re unconsciously calling out for help, (or you may already be aware that your angels are helping you and you are consciously asking for their help, but you still feel apprehensive), if you remember the angels have your back. They are sending you signs to help you move forward. They want you to be powerful, strong and awesome and they will help you achieve these goals. Believe and look for the signs.
