5 Ways To Have a Positive Outlook On Your Day

When we start our day with positive expectancy we become preoccupied with what can be. Rather than feeling of passivity towards the day, we began the day with gratitude which gives a power of accomplishment enthused with hope, faith and positive anticipation.

I’ve worked with intent on believing they are unlucky. These people tend to think that accidents and challenges are there as a punishment. As though The Creator’s goal is to make them miserable. That’s not the case – without challenges you cannot experience success. This is because you have to pay the price for everything.

You need to see the challenges as lessons and you need to find the positive aspect of whatever situation you are in. Once you know that every situation has a positive side, you can change your outlook on the situation thus getting more in control of yourself and understanding how this world works better. So, why do I raise this on morning rituals? Because our attitude has everything to do with how we approach the day. Sadly a day can be like being sick. We don’t value our health until we lose it.

I’m going to offer one not mentioned.

Gratitude. The moment you give thanks your outlook changes. Do this through the day. You;ll find you are more pleasant around. Not only that ideas in your work and family life become easier to resolve.

I am by nature a chronic insomniac. Despite this I have followed some of the morning rituals outlined below by John Boitnott.

They groan at the influx of client requests already piling up. They scan through their favorite news app and see heartbreaking coverage of diseases and breaking wars, photos of celebrities in feuds, and other stressful scenarios. Instead, adopt a healthier “first thing in the morning” habit such as light stretching, dancing in front of a mirror, or making the bed (you’ll feel better for it).

Adopt a good hygiene ritual

Whether you like to shower first thing or wait until after your morning workout session, a good hygiene ritual is crucial–even if it’s just for your face. This is pampering time, and an easy way to continue looking your best while running a successful business. Entrepreneurs who work from home are especially vulnerable to getting into slob mode. At the very least, care for your face, which isn’t just a beautifying move but also refreshing.[…]
