There are opportunities even in the crisis situation for a person with a positive attitude. Opportunities for change are present moment, day, month and every year. Positive people never blame the time or situation.
Positive Attitude is about how we react to what comes our way. People with apositive attitude never complain. They treat all obstacles as learning experience. Setbacks and failures do not stop them – to them these are the stepping stones to success. They are life’s way of teaching us.
Positive attitude helps one to accept their faults, learn from mistakes, and make progress. On the other hand, negative attitude makes a person insecure, not only at work, but also in their relationships.
A person with the right attitude never waits for the perfect condition or time, for it never comes. Such people utilize what they have to the best. If we keep regretting missed opportunities, we will never be able to grab the opportunities of the present. If we keep thinking and waiting for the right time then, we are overlooking what we have right now. If we keep procrastinating, giving excuses about the present time not being good enough, recession, economy not doing well, and blame the government for not creating opportunities, then we will never get what we can get now. We will keep find new reasons every day –there is no shortage of reasons or excuses for people with negative attitude.
A person with apositive attitude just needs a reason to be happy and a person who has a negative attitude just needs a reason to be sad.
Positive Attitude is about taking criticism positively without letting it hamper our progress and growth. Criticism is a part of life irrespective of what profession we are in. Those with a positive attitude are never discouraged by any kind of criticism. When we don’t let criticism and discouragement affect our confidence, our self-esteem, we becoming stronger.
Our predominant feelings, emotions help us to easily determine whether our attitude is positive or not. Are you feeling joyful, excited, amazing, beautiful and blessed most of the time? Or are you feeling frustrated, irritated, unhappy, unfulfilled, dull and annoyed most of the time? Your feelings will help you determine if you are on the right track or not. If you are carrying the right attitude, no matter where you are, and no matter what you have, you will make progress.
There is no point in spending time regretting anything because regret takes us nowhere and in the end we must know that tough times make one tougher.
