Manufacture Your Day by DISCOVERING WHAT CAN AND WILL SET YOUR APART
The results you will get in your life is a matter of your mental attitude. It is about taking initiative, trying new things, pushing yourself out of your comfort zone and never ever giving up.
I always tell myself that I didn’t come this far to only come this far. Onwards and upwards, while acknowledging my progress and having fun along the way. Isn’t this what life is all about?
For example, this rope climbing adventure happened this past Sunday. I have never climbed a rope in my life but after 3 attempts I got half way up that rope. You may ask, “Why?” I will answer, “Why not?”
I am training for a Spartan obstacle race together with my 16 year old step daughter Diana. It’s all about having fun together but also helping each other to become the best we can be. Diana used to be a gymnast and she taught me how to get a handle on the rope climbing technique. I on the other hand have started to help her to become a stronger and more confident runner.
Here you can see my hero Diana. She climbs like a monkey. I hope one day soon I will wave down from that ceiling as well.
What’s my point?
A positive attitude will do many things for your you but here are 3 key points you should keep in mind.
1. Health = Wealth
What if a more positive approach to life would affect your health and well-being? Would you put more effort into it? It already is scientifically proven that positivity helps with the ability to deal with life’s challenges in a more effective way. From personal experience I know that a positive mindset is definitely helpful when you are in the process of overcoming obstacles.
2. Growth Mindset
People like to be around people who have positive energy. They are known for having a natural sense of curiosity, which makes them life-long learners. It’s all about self-improvement. They tend to learn from others, from situations and from their own mistakes so that they can get further faster.
A positive attitude will help you to be more productive in your personal and in your professional life. People with a positive outlook on life also have more confidence to set goals and achieve them.
Truth is, life can be difficult at times and the main thing that will help you is to shift your perspective by finding a more positive approach.
That’s right. I am pretty sure you’ve noticed this already.
Now go and evaluate your attitude towards life.
