6 Reasons Staying Positive Is The Only Way To Make It Through Adulthood

by Abhishek Shah

In the ever-changing, fast-paced world of technology and deadlines, one cannot expect things to always go smoothly.

Also, there is no way one can really be in a saintly mode while dealing with daily crap.

Negative thoughts, anxiety and hopelessness automatically set in, and we have to find a way out.

While it is easy to say, staying optimistic and hopeful is a challenge.

However, if you tune your mind toward certain key pointers, "Mission Positive" is not very difficult.

One might wonder how it helps to stay hopeful even in the craziest of life situations.

The answer is yes, it works. Positive thinking always outshines every other negative thought.

Here are my six reasons why staying positive works in the real world:

1. A positive mind finds a way.

In the real world, let us just imagine all the negative forces combined together.

A sense of hopelessness will only lead to more unproductive thoughts.

Once we attune our minds to positive thinking and hopeful perspectives, ideas start automatically coming in, showing the possible options for the way out.

This is the very reason why most successful business leaders and entrepreneurs see showering success.

They hang on to being positive, even in the worst of situations.

2. Positive thinking attracts attention.

This is absolutely true.

People who are positive thinkers will have more friends and well-wishers in the real world than those who are constantly cynical.

Positive thinking is like a forceful energy that attracts people toward you.

Sometimes, the ability to listen to others and take advice also stems from a hopeful mind.

A man with positive thinking builds a positive aura around himself, gaining more prominence than that of a negative-seeking one.

3. Hopefulness gains confidence.

If you are hopeful, you spread the same spirit to those around you.

This is why most hopeful leaders are successfully able to drive larger teams in the organizations across the world, achieving more results.

A negative mind can never have that kind of traction.

A positive mind sees hope influence the world at large with great thoughts and surprising outcomes.

4. Positive thinkers change the world.

Say you have to appraise your employees and decide on the next viable candidate for a promotion.

Who would you choose?

Our mind tends to divert strongly toward people who are willing to become better, not bitter.

You will end up choosing the candidate who looks optimistic and ready to take on a larger amount of responsibility.

Same holds good for everybody else, including yourself.

Staying positive always gives one an added advantage in the real world compared to those who don’t.

5. Positive leaders rule the world.

History has witnessed this fact.

Kings and leaders who have persevered and fought with hope always ended up victorious.

Leaders with unending hope, hard work and patience have progressed on to rule the world in totality.

Take the examples of any successful global leaders and observe their traits.

It's no surprise that they are filled with hope, positive thoughts and enthusiasm.

6. Positive thinking helps you make better choices.

When you have a positive mindset, your life choices will always be better.

A human mind is addicted to extremely forceful thoughts, whether positive or negative.

Sow the seeds of optimism and confidence, and you will only get superior results.

Implant pessimism and doom, and well, that's what you're headed for.

Train your mind with positive thinking and see the kind of avenues open up new opportunities in life.

It is no myth that a human brain absorbs exactly what it is constantly being fed.
