A positive mindset – it’s something that we can all benefit from, but something that not all of us have learned to accomplish yet.

But that’s okay because achieving a positive mindset is possible – and it’s relatively easy.

Today we will dive into some tips that you can use to change your mindset into a positive space. But first, what does it mean to have a positive mindset?

What is a positive mindset?

A positive mindset is an attitude. It’s an outlook and perspective on life wherein you tend to look for the good in things.

When you have a positive mindset, you tend to look on the bright side of life. In other words, you see the glass as half full.

No, it doesn’t mean that you don’t see the bad things. It simply means that you make the most out of bad situations.

Someone with a positive mindset, for example, may see a job loss as an opportunity for a fresh start at a new job.

Or they may see a failed exam as a chance to learn from their mistakes and study harder next time.

“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right”

Henry Ford

People who have a positive mindset are generally seen as positive, optimistic, accepting, resilient, and grateful.

Not only are people with a positive mindset happier in their overall lives, but other people are more attracted to them. Positivity is contagious, and people want to be around people who radiate positivity.

The second you start changing your mindset is the second you will see others flock to you – and it will change your life.

That mindset is important not only for positive thinking but also for achieving goals, performance, or learning goals. This is backed up by science through research from Dr. Carol Dweck. Her model shows the impact of mindset and how different mindsets lead to different paths of behavior.

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

Wayne Dyer

Here are some tips to help you on your path towards your positive mindset goals:

  1. Start your day off with a positive affirmation. As soon as you wake up, tell yourself, “today is going to be a good day.” It will set the mood for the rest of your day to be a good one!
  2. Focus on the good. If something bad has happened, try to look for something good to come out of it. Perhaps the store is out of your favorite food – but now you can try something new! Or maybe you are stuck in traffic – but now you can blast some upbeat music and boost your mood.
  3. Avoid negative self-talk. We all do it. “Why did I do that?” “I should’ve done better” “I’m terrible at this.” The key is to catch yourself when you are engaging in negative self-talk and change your perspective. Try “I made a mistake, but I won’t do that again” or “I will do better next time” or “If I keep trying, I know I’ll get better” instead.
  4. Engage in mindfulness. Focusing on the past and the future is something that gets a lot of people down. “How is my boss going to react?” “Will I do well on my test tomorrow?” “What if I get hurt?” Overthinking into the future can bring on anxiety and negative talk. Instead, focus on the present. What are you doing right now? What do the next 5 minutes look like? Learn to live in the now and enjoy the moment – it will transform your life.
  5. Choose your friends wisely. Positivity breeds positivity. Spend your time with positive people, and yours will start to flow naturally.
