Most Effective Tactics To Embrace Positivity In Every Day Life

Most Effective Tactics To Embrace Positivity In Every Day Life Positivity is one of the most powerful resources available to all of us. This resource is what makes us or breaks us in this life.

A person’s attitude transcends, in either a positive or negative way, every part of his or her life. It is like a “face" we show to others. Whatever we think about and feel about is expressed through our attitude.

The perils of ignoring our attitude and taking care of it are too high. We should regard our attitude as an enormously valuable asset that deserves and demands careful protection.

Cultivating a positive attitude should be our responsibility, as attitude affects EVERY part of our lives. It affects our relationships, physical and mental energy, self-image, work habits, willingness to take risks, ability to deal with stressful situations, a degree of happiness, etc.

The followings are most effective tactics to embrace positivity in everyday life:

1. Visualize yourself as you want to be

You cannot defeat the enemy without knowing him. You might be your own worst enemy.

Unless you consciously create your own positive self-image, you will be the son or daughter of your circumstances.

Why outsource such an important issue to somebody else?

You can embrace positivity daily by photoshopping your self-image in this incredible thing called – your mind.

As it is your own mind, YOU can create the very BEST positive self-image of you.

  • Use your mental photoshopping skills to visualize a positive self-image of you daily,
  • If possible – write down what you’re seeing in your mind.

Why?

Writing the positive image you are thinking and visualizing, on pen & paper helps cement it in your mind.

Once, you develop visualizing a positive self-image – you should start to —

2. Listen to your inner voice

You have to know what you are saying to yourself.

That is the key to having positivity no matter what. You might not be conscious of this hidden enemy that might be lurking inside.

If your inner voice or thoughts about yourself are mostly critical, you likely have a negative attitude.

You might not be consciously aware of this inner critic inside you. Learn to differentiate your subconscious mind from the conscious mind.

  • Are your thoughts positive or negative?
  • What are the patterns or tendencies of your thoughts?

Once, you are conscious of your internal dialogue, you can change it from a negative critical voice to a positive encouraging one.

How?

By —

3. Affirming yourself increases positivity

By practicing positive thought patterns (POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS) repetitively, you can train your brain towards positivity.

As you affirm positive thoughts daily, you flood your brain with the exact same thoughts.

Here is an example: My heart is overflowing with joy when I write this article.

You must speak out loudly and repeatedly to encourage & uplift yourself.

Why repeatedly?

Because your brain is a creature of habit. As you positively affirm yourself in the PRESENT TENSE, your brain strengths those connections every time you repeat the thought & action.

If you don’t consciously decide to positively affirm yourself, your brain will pick up on any available influence.

For this to work permanently, you need to understand that—

4. You have the sole responsibility for keeping your attitude from being on a roller coaster

As all of us are uniquely different, we allow the circumstances of life to determine our attitude in our own unique way.

If you decide before-hand that positivity is going to triumph over anything else, then you have a more chance of life paying you greater dividends.

The alternative is shockingly disheartening. There are innumerable issues that present themselves every day that conspire to pollute your positivity.

Do you want examples?

  • The traffic you encounter on the drive to work,
  • Rude customers,
  • Money troubles,
  • Unhappy employees,
  • Etc.

Positivity, then, is a personal decision to believe the BEST about yourself and your dreams. Maintaining it isn’t always easy.

Having an emotional back-up is advantageous for embracing positivity. And it is called —

5. Work hard at feeling good about yourself

How you feel about yourself has a tremendous impact on your positivity. Your view of yourself creates the basis for your attitude.

YOU are a unique & valuable person. You deserve to feel good about yourself. As positivity is a natural extension of your view of yourself, you should get on a regular program of exercise and eat a proper diet.

Why?

Because positivity and your physical shape are directly related.

  • The better the physical shape you are in, the easier it is for you to feel good about yourself.

You are much more than you realize. You just have to do one thing in order not to corrupt your positivity. And that is —

6. Surround yourself with a supporting squad

It is a fact that most of us adopt and reflect the attitudes of those with whom we associate regularly.

It is not enough that you have a tremendous positivity & you unlearn the negative thoughts daily.

You should also avoid those who tend to trigger your negative thinking. You must be zealous in choosing your own relationships.

Why?

They have a tremendous effect on your personal attitude. Have no association with those people who leave you feeling drained & their very nature leaves you with less air in your balloon than when you first got together.

The truth is, you can’t afford to be around people who drain your energy if you expect to create and maintain positivity. You have to choose your battles that are worthy of your time & your character.

Conclusion

If we develop certain tactics to embrace positivity and practice them in our daily life, we will have a strong weapon that can BEAT every negativity that exists in life.

Just like lightning strikes the lightning rod, we will be hit with negativity in life. The 6 most effective tactics to embrace positivity are the soldiers that make us STAND ON POSITIVITY.

9 Productivity Hacks For Procrastinators

procrastinators

Procrastination is a habit of postponing your obligations without an apparent reason. This type of behavior includes everything from getting up from the bed to meeting a job deadline. Once a person sinks deep into procrastinating they may experience difficulties with getting back on the track. Although procrastination has some upsides like not rushing into decisions and actions, it’s important to learn how to avoid getting into trouble.

There is a common misconception that procrastination leads directly to lower productivity. This sort of claim, however, is not entirely true. Although it’s not advisable to postpone your work and leave for tomorrow what you can finish today, people don’t just stare at the wall, doing nothing. While work is on hold, one might do some online shopping, pay the bills, clean up the house a bit, etc. When you put everything on paper, this could count like fairly productive time. Additionally, writers often take time before they start working on a project. While the deadline keeps closing in, a writer’s mind keeps working on ways to finish the project. When that “last minute" hits, the writer would sit down and become more efficient.

Case study service editor Miranda Black states: “I always prepare for work by cleaning up around my desk because it keeps my mind free and more creative. When the time comes, my mind is already prepared to execute the task.” This actually means that procrastination is not the opposite of productivity, to say the least, it helps a person become more productive if you follow some simple rules.

Don’t snooze

We already mentioned waking up as one of the issues that procrastinators really have trouble dealing with. In most cases, they would hit the snooze button endlessly until the last minute, and not too seldom until they’re already late. There is an easy trick that might help you cope with this kind of problem.

  • Set the most annoying alarm sound you can think of. This could be a song you don’t like or a high-pitch sound that’s difficult to listen for longer than ten seconds.
  • Don’t put your phone or alarm clock near to you. This way you will have to get out of the bed in order to stop the alarm ringing. Once you get up from your bed it’s unlikely that you’ll go back.

In addition, you can set more alarms so if you manage to ignore the first one, the others will make you jump out and seize the day.

Create a schedule

Break your day into actionable segments. Make every moment of your time count by setting up deadlines for each part of the day. However, don’t forget to add some free time, it will help you to juice up and continue with your work. Pauses are excellent productivity boosters.

Move your deadline ahead

This practice allows you to start earlier with your work, even if you wait for that last minute bell. The fact that you know you still have the time to finish the project will simply keep you relaxed, therefore you won’t rush or do something wrong because you were too hasty.

Keep your phone as far as possible

Although there are hundreds of productivity apps and time trackers, phones are the easiest way to lose track of time. What starts with answering a simple message could result in hours lost on social networks, funny videos, etc. Leave the phone aside and answer only to important phone calls.

Carrot and a stick

We all like gifts, no matter who is presenting us with the prize. Therefore, rewarding yourself for a job well done is a great way to motivate yourself to work. For example, you can set up different awards for various milestones.

Get out of the house

It’s easy to stagnate when you’re inside. Getting comfy on your sofa while watching your favorite show is the easiest way to forget you have work to do. If you feel bad about delaying your work but you just can’t get enough focus to start working, it’s best to get out and take a walk. The fresh air will do you good, oxygen will pump up your brain and give you the energy to start working.

Use notes

Write down your obligations and put them in places where you spend the most of your time. If you go to the fridge and you see a large note saying “Clean up the pool” it should make you go out and finish this daunting task momentarily.

Wake up earlier

If you feel that you need more time to finish all your work, consider waking up earlier. It will give you a few extra hours that you might need in order to finish your tasks and have enough time to procrastinate as well.

Cut corners where you can

Most procrastinators are perfectionists. They don’t start working until they’re absolutely sure they will put out the best results and finish everything perfect up to a fault. Try and become just a bit looser when it comes to working. Work until it’s done, not until it’s perfect.

Conclusion

As we can see, procrastination is not the end of the world. However, it makes you waste a whole lot of time. We human beings can get back most of the things that we lose, time is not one of them. Once lost time is forever lost. Use your time wisely.

8 Ways To Stay Positive During Your Job Searching

job searching

Job searching is a time-consuming effort and with the passage of time, it is easy to get disheartened with the process. If only it were easier. Well, if you are reading my other hubs on job searching, you should be finding it easier. Perhaps, this is the time when you need to simply re-affirm some things. Collect your thoughts, assert your position, and put in more hard work than ever. One of the attributes of a fruitful and successful job hunter is determination and persistence.

 

  1. Start as you mean to go on

    The first few minutes of your day, the first 30 minutes, in fact, are vital. Set your alarms as though you were going to work, have a shower and exercise with a brisk walk to get air into your lungs. Adopt the posture of a person who might be no different from a working person. These habits reaffirm positive thinking.

  2. Set daily goals

    If you do not have anything solid to work towards, you could end up having virtually nothing to focus on. Therefore, you will find yourself achieving very little. Get friends or family to help with this. Set search and writing goals. It trains the mind to be more positive. Having others to help prevent you from getting into a rut can be a gift.

  3. Set up the right job searching environment

    So make a space at home somewhere where you can organize your job searching with a phone, computer/laptop and everything else you might need to run your searches from. Treat it like a workspace or an office.

  4. Eat right

    Eat the proper food like vegetables and fruit, avoid the junk foods and fatty foods. I recommend restricting your alcohol also. And any other things that might affect your attitude. A healthy body leads to a healthy mind, which is what is needed for finding work. You can celebrate later when you get that job.

     

  5. Don’t take rejections personally


    This involves being honest with yourself and moving forward. Do your best to find out why you have not been successful, learn from it and move on. There is no point crying over spoiled milk.

  6. Remember the law of averages


    Finding jobs is about numbers. The more calls and openings you get and make – the more networking events you go to, so the more applications you make, and so the likelier you are of being successful in finding the job you have been looking for.

  7. Enjoy the job searching process

    As with pointers one and two – use the period to reassess your goals and targets. Spend the time finding what you really want to do, and immerse yourself in this process. Make yourself the best you can possibly be. If further skills are what is needed, then act accordingly.

  8. Create a support network

    I already covered this is another tip on the GoodMenProject source, but it has been shown that creating an alliance with other people looking for jobs will help share your experiences. Moreover, will help you to get advice and give you an important outlet for your inner feelings. We are all human.

These statistics indicate that change in career and directions are inevitable and happens at any age. Now, the question is that why people prefer a change in job or career path at a later stage of life.

Reasons behind the change in career at a later stage of life

To Cut the Stress

After 40 human body starts its declining phase and physical stamina goes down gradually that become visible after 50.

If you are not ready to learn new essential skills for your next career or role, you may hardly get succeed in your late career. Therefore, passion for learning new skills constantly is a must.

Advantages of Experience

Some jobs and companies need highly experienced people in their organization for a certain post. However, career switch with years of experience would provide you good opportunity to grab those all at good perk and satisfaction.

Entrepreneurship

Nurses and medical aids, teachers, and software engineer job categories are growing rapidly with stable demands. Similarly, some other job areas have big prospects, and you have to recognize those areas if aligned with your skills or passion and apply for it.

However, you have intense experiences, strong confidence, and a rich set of skills as well as determination power to fulfill the promises or delivery claims. These all positive factors surpass your age-related issues and make it all minor in hiring considerations.

Therefore, don’t feel low or intimidate about any age-related issue.
