The Role a Positive Mental Attitude Plays in Success
by: TJ Philpott
Enough can not be said about the influence a positive mental attitude can have on your life. By adjusting your attitude to think primarily positive thoughts you can literally make all your efforts easier and more enjoyable as well! As a result your ability to become successful in any facet of your life is greatly increased since you more or less expect to succeed.
Let’s break down exactly why it is that by maintaining positive thoughts you can actually increase your chances to become successful.
Dilutes Negative Feelings
Your self doubts and recent setbacks are now de-emphasized allowing you to be more proactive and productive. Negative feelings can sap your energy and will power as fast as a switch can turn off electricity.
Creates the Motivation to Take Action
The feeling of well being that a positive attitude can give you also supplies you with the willingness to move forward and take action. This is simply because you feel good about things and therefore success is the only thing you expect!
Helps Build Momentum
As your passion or zeal builds so does your momentum, much like running down a hill! The deeper you get into your pursuits, the greater the momentum is you are building since you are seeing results/progress which motivates you to continue forward.
Helps Sustain Efforts
Your own momentum coupled with feeling good about what you are doing will help you work through many obstacles you may encounter. Setbacks are not something likely to discourage you to the point of quitting. These will be view more as learning opportunities.
Creates an Attraction
There is no doubt that if you are truly passionate about something others ‘pick up’ on this and it increases their curiosity. This also increases your level of attraction as well making the support of others easily available. This type of support is a great source of encouragement for those times that things may not be going your way.
Possessing a positive mental attitude immediately decreases your stress levels but it also increases your chances to become successful at just about anything. It all starts with your attitude, which by the way is actually a choice you make, and your willingness to maintain positive thoughts. Your thought process is normally projected in the disposition you display to others. If your attitude is negative, this will only succeed in making you less attractive to others while also increasing the difficulty of everything you do. A negative person is only working ‘against’ themselves! Maintaining more positive thoughts on the other hand tends to give you a much ‘sunnier’ disposition. Having a ‘can do’ attitude will make success come much more easily to you for reasons as explained in the 5 examples reviewed above. So why not give yourself and those around you a break starting today and choose to be more positive. When you consider this will give you a greater chance to become successful, along with a less stressful life, it seems this choice is an easy one to make!
