What does having a positive attitude then really boil down to, our thoughts, actions, patterns, habits, and behavior have us using, targeting and utilizing our energy and enthusiasm in a particular way. We think, act and do…If you are mainly positive, you will be focused on good things, happy thoughts, and successful outcomes, seeing the glass half-full to an extent.
Negatively, you will be focusing on bad things, sad thoughts, unsuccessful outcomes and act and behave negatively too. Your goals and energy will not be focused and purposefully driven towards success, half-hearted at best.
There is an undeniable link between personal performance, confidence and even health and our positive thoughts. Matching, triggering neuro-chemical and physical responses, increased mental alertness and release of physical energy, improved respiration and circulation, boosts our abilities. The reverse is true, triggering the fight or flight response and instinct when we are decisively negative. Which can lead to loss of energy, creativity, motivation and lower self- esteem. You can effectively turn this habit of positive thinking into a power tool boosting not only your life, success and future, but also your health and wellbeing. There are numerous self-help books, products and even training courses that you can take to learn more about endorphins for example and how positive thoughts and can and motivate your day, towards more positive outcomes.
